Dear friends, family, fans, and those who have aimlessly stumbled here:
I have compiled my writings, melodies, and piano progressions from the past year and a half to create songs that ask bigger questions and sail across broader musical spectrums. They are the body of what will become my first full-length album. The five-song EP I released in 2010 was a result of my first songwriting efforts. THIS project is far more personal and soul-searching, and the culmination of years of diverse musical inspiration and influence. It will be largely piano-based and bare.
Making an album is expensive, especially a full-length. As an independent artist, the entire process is my sole financial responsibility. And as an independent musician, my finances are SLIM. I’m attempting to raise $5,000 to make this record. This cost covers everything from studio time, to mixing, mastering, pressing the album, duplication, and promotion.
This is where you come in: I am using this Kickstarter campaign as a vehicle for this record to become a reality in its best possible form. I want to offer you the greatest album I can give you at this point in my musical journey, and I can really only do so with your support.
SO, if you would like to support this project, and me, this is the place to do it. What’s really great about Kickstarter is that it allows me to give rewards to anyone who chooses to donate! You can see the list of rewards on the side of this page after each donation price point. Keep in mind that at whatever price point you donate, you receive the reward at that level and everything before it. For example, if you donate $50, you get the signed copy of my first EP AND the t-shirt, signed copy of the new album, and the digital download. Pretty sweet deal.
Your support means the world to me. The only reason I am able to follow my dream of performing music professionally is because of you, the fans. Anything you are able or willing to give will help me reach my goal. If I am able to reach it, I’ll be forever grateful to all of you. If by some crazy chance I surpass my goal, that money will be used to fund my summer 2012 tour!!
Thank you all for your time, and your continual support of music in all its forms. Let’s make this happen!
