About

 Lake Rhymes: Great Lakes Maritime Music Book

 by Joann and Lee Murdock 

My name is Lee Murdock, and I am so lucky. As a full-time independent musician, I have performed all over North America, and have released 21 CDs so far. During the first ten years of my career, I became immersed in the songs and heritage of the Great Lakes Region. In 2004, my wife Joann and I published our first book, Lake Rhymes: Folk Songs of the Great Lakes Region. It was, it is, a 148 page book, peer-reviewed, printed in 2-colors with high-quality duotone photo reproductions, and includes an 18-song CD, 72 minutes of music. It's the only creative project that my wife, Joann, has partnered with me to write and produce.

We printed 3400 copies of Lake Rhymes in 2004, (taking a second mortgage on our home), but the book has been out of print for the past 8 years. After we sold out, there was still strong demand for this book. So we created an e-book, burned it to a CDR, and packaged it with the music in a 2-CD set. It sells online for $20, and It's also available for digital download, both the music and the book.

But there is still that undeniable ... something ... about a physical book. The tactile feel of the glossy paper as you turn the pages, the faint smell of the printers' ink, the permanence of those high-quality duotone photographs as they shimmer on the page, yielding the secret details that were unmasked from old photos through the miracles of Photoshop.  The ease with which you can share those stories, songs, and images, with your friends, your students, your children. You will never be able to do all those things on a computer screen, much less so on your tiny phone readout.

Even these 15 years later, Joann and I are still yearning to bring that book back in print. Therefore, we have agreed that the project deserves to be published as a Second Edition--in Hardcover only. There is great risk in such a large investment, but Joann and I have lived our lives as independent artists, always reaching for big goals with faith, hard work, and commitment.

So, that is what this project is all about. We have set a very ambitious funding goal for this All-Or-Nothing Kickstarter Campaign. Our actual cost for printing and production is $30,000, but we are working on additional sources as well. As you can see, we have skin in the game. What we are asking from you is one small act of faith in us: Your Kickstarter pledge for this new Hardcover Second Edition of Lake Rhymes, will allow us to make this dream a reality in 2019, and you will receive a copy of this beautiful limited edition book. 

For you, as an active participant, we will be providing updates and background as we proceed. Look to the Updates Tab above for stories about the history of the project, the community and our progress in the making of this book.

 As we have done in the past, we are also offering special rewards for those who wish to make a larger contribution, so that we can meet our goal. Here's a quick rundown on some of the special options.

Risks and challenges

The book is ready to go to the printer. We will add only minor corrections and additions to the book (such as adding names of any Lifesaver or First Mate Sponsors), and it is ready to print. The investment in reprinting the book will be largely in the cost of manufacturing.

If we can meet our Kickstarter funding goal, the book will be printed. The target amount is only about 1/2 of the cost of printing this book, in a limited edition. We are counting on additional orders, and we have secured one or two private sponsors and loans, which will help us to meet the total cost.

My first LP, The Grand Departure, was partially funded by loans and gifts our fathers, Frank Murdock and Charles Fitzgibbon. They were both paid back in cash and in love and in their pride in the work we have both achieved. During the 1990s, many of my CDs were easily paid for simply from ongoing CD sales. But with the advent of ITunes and other digital music platforms, we have to be much more careful in pre-funding each recording, or in this case, the Hardcover Book.

The good news and the bad news is this: Kickstarter is an "All or Nothing" Crowdfunding concept. If we cannot meet our targeted goal, then we will not be able to publish this book. And your pledge will not be charged.

For me, it's a labor of love, And I feel like the luckiest person in the world.

We hope that you will pledge now, in any amount you can afford, to be a part of our team. Thank you.
