*****ANNOUNCING NEW $45K STRETCH GOAL*****
WE DID IT!
We reached $25K and we couldn't have done it without you! Now that we're here, I'm excited to announce the details of my first stretch goal! If we can reach $45K, this will allow me to finish my next EP, Sanctuary, and gift it to everyone who donates $20 or above.
This means that in addition to receiving the Namesake album you will also receive the FULL digital download of Sanctuary before it is released to the public!
If you've already donated, it will be sent to you automatically! I have a few sweet surprises that I'll reveal at the end of this campaign, but in the mean time, we need your help so keep sharing with your friends and family using hashtag #TeamJer!
I can't wait to celebrate with you all.
Hi everyone! Jeremiah here!
I am a singer-songwriter based in Baltimore, Maryland and I'm currently working on my debut album! This last year has been a wild journey for me. From working as a janitor to earning a place in the Top 6 on American Idol, my life has been turned upside down as I make the transition into doing what I love for a living!
Back in April I started recording "Namesake" at BIG EGO Studios in Long Beach, California with my friend, producer Chris Schlarb. We brought in so many incredible musicians and singers. They were generous with their time and brought so much good energy and momentum to project. Some of the highlights included working with a small orchestra and full gospel choir!
At the moment we are organizing the album release and will be sending off "Namesake" for mastering by mid-September. I had so much materiel that we ended up recording almost 20 songs. That’s enough for an additional EP! I’d love nothing more than to be able to complete both projects and release a follow up EP in the coming year.
The truth is, we decided to pay for everything ourselves in an effort to make music the way we wanted and with the support of independent musicians and artists who love this music as much as I do. Any additional funds raised beyond our goal would allow me to release these projects into the world and make them the best they can be.
I am so grateful for your support and could not do any of this without you. Please consider backing this campaign or sharing with family and friends!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!!
Risks and challenges
This is an all or nothing campaign! If we don't raise $25,000 in 30 days, we don't get any of the funds! Since we've already spent the money to make the album, there is very little risk involved.
We are pressing vinyl records however and it is possible there could be manufacturing delays that prevent us from hitting our target goal of February 2020. The sooner we are funded, the sooner the album will go to the pressing plant! Private show scheduling will be organized upon completion of the campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
