Friends, Family & Supporters!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and being a BIG part of my journey! If you don't know me, allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Justin Gambino and I am a singer/songwriter/musician out of the south Houston, Texas area. I have been pursuing this dream and calling of mine for a little more than 5 years now and haven't slowed down since I started. Some of you may know me as the lead singer and frontman of the band, Shattered Silence (www.shatteredsilencemusic.com). Don't worry! The band and I have not broken up. In fact, we just finished writing the second album (and some of the third) and will actually be recording the second album very soon. I am very thankful for having such understanding, encouraging brothers in the band, who support me 100% in following this dream I have of making a solo album.
The music that comes out of me naturally, is more of the acoustic vibes and that's where this project is going. Worshipful, relaxing, inspiring and thought provoking lyrics all bundled into one. Just my cup of tea!
I have been working on this project for a couple of years now and I now have a vision for it. The 4 song EP will include titles that create a sentence. "If I Seek & Find Where I Belong I'll Become Your Hands & Feet". The full length album (10 songs) will have a deeper message to it. One that I feel hasn't even been revealed to me yet. Some of my songs are still a mystery, to even myself. I'm sitting on a few albums worth of music, but I figured we could just start with one for now :-) Technically, I have already begun the process of this project and have 2 songs recorded already. That gives us a head start! You can hear "Your Hands & Feet" (my latest released and the single for this project) here: http://goo.gl/SVnU2v as well as "Carson" (a song that I wrote and released for a family who lost their son to leukemia) here: https://goo.gl/29GT8Y Both of these will be on the album as well.
I can't begin to describe how thankful I am for your love and support. Independent artists, such as myself, work hard (day in and day out) to bring our art to you and others around the world. Your financial support not only helps me make an album of music, but it expands my network. Extends my reach. Alone, I can't go far, but with you, the sky is the limit. Together, we make a great team and I couldn't ask for a more caring and supportive group of individuals. When I step out in faith, you are the stepping stones, supporting me along the way.
I do want make sure that you understand, that if I don't hit my set goal, I will not see a penny of the donations. I must hit my goal in order to receive any funds for this project.
If we hit our goal of $10,000, it will not only help me make this album, but reach so many lives with the message of my music. I've heard so many stories, near and far, about how my music has touched someone's life and I am looking forward to doing that more and more for years to come.
Thank you again for reading this and thank you for considering helping me financially, on my journey. To God be all the glory!
Risks and challenges
Recording is costly and at times can have surprises come out of no where. I've run into many of them on my journey and I'm sure there's plenty more to come. My plan is to record, mix and master the entire album and EP all at once, which will save money in the long run.
I promise you, that whatever trials, obstacles/barriers I come across, your money will not go to waste and will be spent wisely. I have a vision for each song, so time in the studio will be thought out ahead of time, so that my time and your money will be saved during the recording process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
