About this project

*****UPDATE 11.19.*********

For those backing at the T-shirt level, check out these awesome designs. Still trying to figure out if you guys can choose whichever one you want from these designs or if I'll need to do a vote and narrow it down to 1 or 2, but since I always like to share everything, I wanted you all to see these great designs. (These are not final)

My name is Jesse Young and I am a singer/songwriter from South Florida. Back in 2010 I launched a successful Kickstarter to record a 4 song EP called "Live.Love.Learn". The album was produced by the amazing Zach Ziskin and featured a great group of musicians. I can honestly say, that EP is HANDS DOWN the best thing I've ever recorded. 

I starting recording that EP shortly before my daughter Gia was born. She'll be 5 in Jan and I've been getting the bug lately to record some new music. 

I'm looking to step things up a bit since last time, trying to record 6 new tunes at a minimum. The more we are able to raise, the more songs I'll record, but I'd love to have 6 new songs so I can release a proper full length album (6 new PLUS the 4 from Live.Love.Learn.).

Super Producer Zach is back so you know the album will be amazing. I've got some new tunes I'm pretty excited about and I'd love to share them with you. 

in 2014 I played at SunFest in West Palm Beach opening for Daughtry. That year I had my dream band, an 8 piece featuring a horn section. I am a big fan of Phil Collins, Huey Lewis & The News, Bruce Hornsby, Billy Joel, Hall & Oates and I miss the sound of horns in pop music. 

Just like Every Step We Take, this album is going to have horns on it as much as possible. I had such a blast with the guys at Sun Fest, that I am bringing them back for this album. 

Thank you so much for your time and willingness to back this project. It will not be possible without your help, so thank you a million times over.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is raising the money for studio time. Having done a successful Kickstarter in the past I am not worried about producing a quality product or getting people their rewards. I am 1000% confident that will happen, all I need are the funds to record and I promise I will make the best record possible.
