About this project
First off I would like to welcome you to my very first kickstarter project. I must say that this is an amazing opportunity for me and I appreciate you for visiting my page and taking interest in me. Let me start off by telling you who I am. My name is Kyle Abner. I was born and raised and still living in Northern Kentucky just a few miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been playing guitar since I was 14, self taught. I started to sing around 17. When I turned 21 that's when I really started getting into the music scene. Mainly playing acoustic shows. That is also the time that I started writing my songs. Everything I write means something to me and came from a personal life experience. All I know is music. I truly believe that music is the only thing that transcends race, political party or religion. It is the only thing that I have seen in my life that can bring opposing sides together and bring peace to a chaotic world.
A) Afford a Producer
B) Hire Professional Musicians and Come Up With New Arrangements of My Songs
C) Give The Producer Take Time To Master The Album
D) Promotion of The EP
It seems like a lot but as I was saying, this isn't a recording studio in someones basement. I would be working in a professional recording facility where several Major Label acts have recorded. I will be working with a team of people who work withUniversal Records, Warner Brothers, Curb, Sony, Atlantic, Wind up and many more. From Major Label marketing and showcasing to a network of Producers, Musicians and Engineers whose credits include Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, Alison Krause, Bob Dylan, Big & Rich, Taylor Swift, Jewel, Dixie Chicks, Sugarland, T-Bone Burnett, Joaquin Phoenix, Reece Witherspoon, Little Big Town, HBO, ABC, NBC, CBS, Letterman, Leno and many others. None of your money will go to my travel expenses such as gas, hotel, food or anything else that I would have to pay for outside of the music Production. All of your money goes to making this album. Anything over what I pledge will also go to merchandise. All of the rewards such as CD's, stickers, t-shirts, or if I travel to play a show for you are all paid by me.

Risks and challenges
The Risks and Challenges of making this EP:
I shouldn't really have any problems with what I plan to do. As soon as I receive the money is when I get in touch with my contacts and set everything up. Hopefully within a week or two of having the money I should be in the studio recording. It will be the busy holiday season at that time so the only downfall would be having to wait until the first of the year. I will try everything I can to not make that happen. After recording has started, it shouldn't take more than a couple days to get the songs right.
Like I said, there shouldn't me any problems or complications.
As far as rewards go. If something doesn't seem to pan out, I will be more than happy to work with you personally to see if we can make something work. For example.. Me coming to play an acoustic set for you. If you pledge the amount for that reward, we can personally set up the time that would best benefit to you and myself.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
