Who: You and me—Ryan Key. Together, we can bring The Lone Tree Recordings to life. As the lead singer and guitarist of Yellowcard, I practically grew up in a studio. I know how important it is for musicians to be able to write and record their music so they can share it with the world. So I'm reaching out to all music fans and musicians to help support this studio as a space for talented musicians to write and record the songs they love.
What: The Lone Tree Recordings will be a studio space that welcomes creativity and expression through music and the craft of songwriting. With state-of-the-art equipment, this professional studio will help musicians write, record, and mix their songs, demos, and albums. The studio will have top-of-the-line gear including microphones, analog and digital recording equipment, instruments, and software to capture the highest-quality recordings imaginable.
Where: The Lone Tree Recordings will be built at my home away from home in the "Songwriting Capital of the World," Nashville, Tennessee. My home has always been a welcoming place and this studio is an extension of that.
When: We have just one month to raise our goal of 75k, and then we can begin construction. I’ve already put a sizeable down payment on the land, so all we need now is to raise the rest and get this amazing project underway. I know with your help and generosity, we can get there.
Why: For over a decade, I’ve been lucky enough to learn music production from the best in the business. Now it’s my turn to pay it forward and help other musicians who want to experience and enjoy the recording process as much as I do.
How: Through this Kickstarter campaign, and with your help in spreading the word, we can reach our fundraising goal and begin to turn the dream of The Lone Tree Recordings into a reality. There are some awesome rewards for backers as well, here are just a few of the cool things we have available:
Please share, post or tweet the link to my Kickstarter page and help me get the word out that The Lone Tree is coming with the hopes of bringing more great singer, songwriter, musicians and bands to the world.
Risks and challenges
Timing is always tough. Writing, recording, and mixing an album is not an easy task. The good news is we've already put a lot of work into the writing of our first backer-exclusive EP. As many of you know, I've also been through the entire creative process from start to finish on many albums, and have a ton experience regarding timing and staying on schedule.
Since recording the album is contingent upon the studio being finished mid-2016, the build out process is the biggest area for issues. However, we have given ourselves plenty of time, already identified of the proper equipment, contacted manufacturers, and have done as much upfront work as possible to minimize risk.
As for the fun branded items, we have a great group of friends we've teamed up with in order to make sure we get everything produced and delivered on time. If we run into any delays, we'll be sure to keep you all informed. Overall, we have minimized risk by careful planning and preparation with everyone involved.
With the support of you guys, The Lone Tree Recordings will be born and grow into something that could be pretty rad. Thank you all. - RyanLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
