Brave is One More Step in the Dark

A Note from Jen and Keith...

Annnd, we're back!  Ahhhhhh!  We hope you've been following along on our journey over the last year, as our album, Brave is One More Step in the Dark, has taken shape.  And perhaps you were even a part of the initial Kickstarter that got us off the ground!  If not, then WELCOME to this community that is holding a light together by making music!  

Since the project's inception, we've spent many days in a little red barn studio, and, along with several local artists and musicians, we have created a full-length album of songs about hope in the darkness of postpartum depression and anxiety.  We cannot wait to share this music with the world to help bring light and healing to motherhood and any place in life that calls for brave steps in the dark. 

The reason we are back with a second Kickstarter is to help us finish the project by funding the post-production (mixing/mastering) and initial distribution costs that will get the project off the ground (online distribution to online platforms like iTunes and Spotify, music licensing, basic merchandise, and initial advertising/posting, etc.).  Our first Kickstarter project COMPLETELY FUNDED our studio time... all of our musicians and the visual artists on this project have donated their time and talents for free... and we are now paying additional bills ourselves.  

We would love to invite you to take part in this next step of the journey with a pledge of any amount.  Help us release Brave is One More Step in the Dark to as many people as possible, holding the light with us and fighting for hope!  

Love, Jen & Keith & The Jen Miller Music Collective

Current Musicians on the Project: Jen Miller (Acoustic Guitar and Vocals), Keith Miller (Bass Guitar and Vocals), Gail High (Piano and Vocals), James High (Slide Guitar), Greg Wheaton (Acoustic Guitar), Aaron Winn (Electric Guitar), Greyson Scott (Cello), Drayton Eggleson (Vocals), Jessica Quinn (Vocals), Carolyn Miller (Vocals), Nate Miller (Vocals), and Natalie Miller (Vocals).

Risks and challenges

Because we've already embarked on much of this project, are self-funding some of it, and have laid out the specific needs for this phase with exact quotes, there is very little risk involved. In fact, the album itself has already been recorded, and we are simply moving forward with the its post-production and initial distribution.
