About this project
WE REACHED OUR GOAL. I am beyond grateful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank You.
Hey everyone, it's Josh. About 3 years ago I started the journey of making music professionally. I have always spent time writing songs about life and our God, yet it wasn't until a little over a year ago that I started writing songs for the Church. God made it evident he wanted me to do it His way, rather than chasing my own ideas. He took me to his word, and from it, all the songs were birthed.
Since the start of this journey, my wife and I have had two kids, both of which are boys. Let me just add, that writing at the house is hard since...well, you can imagine. Therefore, much of my song writing is done at the church, or when the boys are asleep.
The first album I recorded was an EP called "On My Mark." We choose the 6 best songs out of 140. On the other hand, "The Well", which was the 2nd studio album as well as the first Worship record, didn't have as many songs to choose from. I wrote and collaborated with other writers to gain around 30 songs. My producer and I narrowed that list to create a 10 song worship record which became "The Well." It was the most exciting album I have recorded thus far. Our Church began worshipping every week to the songs that God had put on the record to share. The outpouring was unreal. Local churches, along with churches out of state, started to pick up the songs and sing them in their sanctuaries, Youth groups, and Bible studies.
This new worship record, which has not been titled yet, is going to be a full length Worship Record. It will consist of a new worship songs I have written and co-written with some close friends. A lot of the songs written for this record are already being sung in churches and leading their members into the presence of Christ.
So, here is where you can be involved. The record is in the pre-production stage right now and cannot be recorded until it is funded. I need your help to make these songs happen. I have done a lot of the ground work to get this record moving, but need some help to finish the job. Not only do you get to be apart of this record by your donations but you also receive rewards. Win, Win!
I am using some of the best studio musicians in Nashville. These musicians are featured on hundreds of the albums you hear on the radio daily. You might not know who they are because they aren't necessarily 'in the band', but they are the ones in the studio making the music happen. Here are a few of the bands these musicians have recorded for: Jars Of Clay, All Sons & Daughters, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and many more.
The reason the goal has been set at this amount is because of all the things that go into creating an album. Such things as Studio Cost, Producing, Engineering, Mastering, Session Players, Duplication, and Album Artwork.
Let's make music together and pray God uses these songs to reach the world.
Risks and challenges
There are many challenges that can appear when you are releasing a record independently, but I am confident in doing this since this will be my third Studio Album. If I experience anything along the way you will be the first to know about it. I can't wait. I hope your excited. Let's do this!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
