This Kickstarter project is to raise money to produce and release a new album of my original music. The recording will feature myself on guitar, and four of the most incredible musicians I've had the pleasure of working with: guitarist Phil Doublet, bassist Craig Reeves, keyboards and pianist Doug Wright, and drummer Marcel Rodeka. After the rehearsal process is done, all I need your help to record and finish it and release the album.
What the funds will go towards:
- Studio time (10%)
- Musician Fees (10%)
- Mixing (20 - 25%)
- Mastering (15 - 18%)
- Photography and Videography (10%)
- Album Artwork (5%)
- CD Duplication costs (15%)
- Kickstarter and Stripe (credit card) Fees (10%)
This is the minimum amount we need to raise, in order to bring you a quality recording that will be yours to enjoy, always. Any money we're able to raise above and beyond will go towards helping defray other expenses, promote the album, future touring, and other unforeseen costs.
Risks and challenges
As with any creative endeavor, there are always challenges and risks. If this project were to face any challenges, the most likely would be making the deadline we have set for ourselves. There are several stages to go through once we have finished recording - mixing, mastering, completing the album artwork, pressing CDs - and each step requires some time, patience and working with the schedules of other professionals.
My first goal in producing this recording is to do it to the best of my ability and fulfill the vision I have in mind for this project. Having self-released my first album, I believe I have set a reasonable and achievable timeline for releasing this recording. Once funded, I will stay in contact with the supporters of this project with any updates as to our progress. Should there be any delays expected in the release time of the album, I will let the supporters know what they are and when they can expect to receive their rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
