Independant singer/songwriter Lee Lumley has been writing songs for over 10 years and is working on his debut album.
Hopelessness doesn't care what type of clothes you wear, whether or not you have a title before or after your name. It doesn't pass over your home because of the devastation it brought last year. It's a rabid dog searching for the closest victim to sink it's teeth into. It strikes the lady walking the streets selling herself and the respected business man who owns all the real estate on that street. It's been known to turn even the strongest most confident of persons into a frail shadow of what used to be.
That's why I want to do this project. I am passionate about bringing people to realize that they have a helper in Christ. They don't have to face this life alone and they can find peace even in the midst of the most terrible storms life can throw at them. Througout this project there are songs that speak to God's love, grace, mercy and His desire to comfort His hurting children. There are songs that remind us that "down here" is not all there is; life in Christ is eternal and the trials we face "down here" are only dots on the big picture of eternity.
Together we can get this message of hope out to those who need it. With your pledge of $1 or more you can be a part of this project and help to bring it to completion. You will also receive rewards for the different pledge levels.
***International backers please ad $5 extra to help with shipping costs***
Here is a breakdown of the total costs of the project.
Studio Time $2,300.00
Musicians Fees: $ 800.00
Post Production: $ 1,000.00
CD Duplication (300 qty): $ 555.00
Total Project Cost: $4,655.00
You'll notice the total is much more than I am asking for; My wife and I have already put $1000 of our money toward this project and I am willing to carry the other costs if needed but I believe God is able to supply the funds.
Remember if we don't reach our minimum goal of $2800 I will not get a penny of the funds, you won't get any of the cool stuff listed on the right over there, and I may only be able to release the CD for online sales. If we are able to raise more than the project cost of $4,655 the extra money will go toward promoting the CD.
Your prayers are invaluable. Nothing is more helpful in my opinion. You can also be a huge help by sending your friends and family and email with the link to this page. Post the link or embedded code onto facebook, twitter, or other web sites/forums you frequent. The more people that know about the projec the better our chances of raising the money needed to complete it.
Thanks for your support!
Yes I do. Hey with 2 small children that's about the only quite place I can find. Just kidding. Ac tually I have a decent size walk in closet/office that hold my computer, instruments, and equipment. It's on the top floor of our home and off of our master bedroom so it's usually quite with the exception of my daughter coming in to ask me if she can sit in my lap. Man I love being a dad!
Yes. Thank you so much for caring enough to do that. I'm not sure how many international fans I have out there but the shipping costs could add up quickly.
There will be 10 songs with different styles ranging from Acoustic Worship to Blues Rock to Funk.
Yes. I have hired studio musicians to record the tracks for this album.
The CD will be carried in a few bookstores local to the Augusta, GA area but will not be distributed nationally. If you're interested in getting your local bookstore to carry the CD refer them to this website and maybe they'll agree with you that they should carry it.
No. I am an independant artist and it is very expensive to pay for radio promotion so I will not be releasing a single. However, that doesn't mean that you can't start up a grass roots promotion and call your local DJ's and ask them to play your favorite song.
Yes! Go to http://www.reverbnation.com/leelumley the songs that are on that page are the original rough demos I made of the songs before the project started.
All the voices were done by me...it's one of the perks of being a daddy, you learn to make up voices! I do a pretty sweet James Brown impression also...I Feel Good!
