Update: though funded, project on indefinite hold & not expected to finish based on legal and budget issues.  it's tougher to get an indie album out than I expected in current industry state, even with all the help from you. I apologize & love you all.

Marc B - New Album & Tour

$12,280

Hello, welcome to Kickstarter!  This is where we're directing all our fans, friends, and family in order to be a part of producing our next album!  

WE HAVE A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!  

For this recording, I'm pleased to tell you I'll be teaming up with Jackson Browne/Graham Nash's band, Song & Dance Society.  These guys are all Grammy Award winners, and have been touring with Jackson for years.  I'm also pleased to announce I'm working with Producer Kevin McCormick (Mellissa Ethridge, Jackson Browne, Brett Dennen.) in a beautiful studio in Hollywood, and we can't wait to release our album!  But here's the thing: without the support and passion that you all have for music, we cannot create this album.  We need your help.

HERE'S HOW TO TAKE US TO THE NEXT LEVEL: 

1. PLEDGE.  Recording is expensive.  We need to raise money for recording ($5,000), duplication ($2,000), and a tour...to YOU ($5,000).  Our Tour will be planned based on where the pledges came from. 

2. RECIEVE.  What do YOU want? Free music? Autographed posters?  New threads?  A live performance in your living room? Yeah, we've got that for ya.  And we're giving it to you in appreciation for believing in our passion.

3. SHARE.  Post a link to this campaign everywhere you can, and connect us to your community and your world.

The bottom line is this.  We have new music.  We're recording this music, pressing albums, and coming to a town near you to play for you. We cannot do this without your help!  THANK YOU!

Respecfully and sincerely, 

-Marc B.
