My name is Josh Walker and I am a musician in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. I love all kinds of music, but I especially love anything with a jazz/R&B influence.
As a Christian, it's sometimes difficult to find music that is positive, worshipful, and also appealing to musicians as well as music lovers. For this reason, I have taken 8 classic hymns of the Christian faith and infused them with modern harmonies, rhythms, and a lot of groove.
My goal with this Kickstarter campaign is to have these 8 hymns recorded in a professional studio and released as a CD entitled Reimagined. The genres in this CD will be varied and will appeal to a wide audience.
Reimagined Track List and Samples of Selected Tracks:
1. Old Rugged Cross (Contemporary Jazz)
2. Amazing Grace (Smooth Jazz)
3. Jesus Loves Me (R&B)
4. Rock of Ages (Latin Jazz)
5. He's Got The Whole World In His Hands (Acoustic Pop)
(Now you know why my wife says my flute playing should stay in the makeshift studio.)
6. When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder (Laid-Back Funk)
7. Just As I Am (Bossa Pop)
8. Just A Closer Walk With Thee (Traditional African-Influenced)
The $6,000 budget will include:
- Recording in a professional studio
- Production of CDs
- Paying musicians
- Producing the CD artwork and liner notes
I am thankful you have taken the time to learn about Reimagined. I hope you will consider supporting this project.
Risks and challenges
I do not anticipate significant, if any, challenges. The music is written, the demos have been recorded, and the musicians and recording studio have all been selected. Once the project is funded, the next step is to schedule the studio time, record the project, and send out the rewards. This campaign will run until early September and if successful, we will record later the same month. We anticipate backers receiving their rewards no later than the end of December 2014.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
