About

The Story

I'm so excited to invite you to join me in creating something amazing! I have a chance to record a 5-song original worship EP with the up-and-coming label Little Bird + Big Sound down in Savannah, Georgia. I've been working hard to write songs that share the goodness of the God of the universe, and I think I finally have a set of songs that offer a glimpse of how wonderful my Savior Jesus is. Those of you who know me know I've done a lot of self-production over the years, but this is my first opportunity to get into the studio with something entirely my own for the glory of the Kingdom, and I need your help to make it happen!

I have been praying for the Lord to open the door for me to create a worship album for several years now, and when Cory, Julia, and I connected, I felt in my heart that this would be an opportunity that I couldn't pass up. Drawing closer to Jesus is such an important and integral part of who I am, and a source of incredible joy in my life, no matter the circumstance. I have always had a strong desire in my heart to reach as many people as I can for the Kingdom through the medium of music, and I think this would be such an excellent chance for me to do just that.

About the Label

Little Bird + Big Sound is a music production company and independent label created by husband and wife team Cory and Julia Shuman. They have over a decade of industry experience, and have a heart for the Lord and a passion for music. Cory and Julia have really impressed upon me, and I really look forward and am hopeful to create something amazing for the Kingdom with them! They have already helped several others before me in taking steps forward in their careers, and I hope to be among the next!

The Budget

I need to raise $9,500 in order to make the EP a reality. I have 30 days, from June 1st to June 30th, to reach my goal. This is a scary prospect for sure, and the scarier thing is that this is all or nothing! If I don't reach my goal within this 30-day window I don't get to keep any of the funds, and I won't be able to record the album. So I'm stepping out completely in faith that God will provide a way for this to happen if He wants it to be!

The budget includes:

  • Studio Time
  • Recording
  • Engineering
  • Mixing
  • Mastering
  • Distribution
  • Copyrights
  • Official Audio Video
  • Graphic Design
  • Digital Branding

Whether you're able to give financially or not, I always welcome prayer! I'm not the type to ask for help in this way, but I literally couldn't make this album without your help!

The Rewards

If you feel led to back this project, you can give any amount without rewards, but I wanted to make sure the rewards I give are personal and special for each one of you. My rewards include a signed copy of the EP upon completion, a sticker, a signed poster of the album art, a chance to appear in an upcoming music video, and opportunities for me to come lead worship or play a concert in your area. Local churches and shows are considered those roughly within 3 hours of my home in Ellicott City, Maryland. Anywhere else in the U.S. falls into the "Distant" category. I'd love for the chance to praise together with you!

I'm waiting with great expectation to see what the Lord does in us and through us as we pray and pursue this project together. Thank you all, I love each and every one of you!

If you'd like to hear my voice and some of what influences me musically, I have a YouTube channel that you can check out if you like! Below is one of my most recent videos:

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk and challenge to this project is the funding. I'm taking a huge step of faith with this, but I'm trusting that if God wants this album to come together, He will make a way!
