About this project

Recording and releasing a Nick Thomas solo album has been a goal of mine for quite some time now. Over the last 10+ years I've been the frontman of the band The Spill Canvas. Where writing and playing music has saved my own life alongside seemingly countless others. With help from some of the Spill guys, and other friends, I'm primed and ready as ever to continue this amazing journey with you all. While Spill takes a quick break to focus on family and personal matters, this Nick Thomas project will finally have it's time to blossom and shine. Also, if the music weren't enough-I'll be documenting the entire process of it's creation to include with the release. With your generosity via pledges, I'm finally on the verge of making this record a reality!

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my campaign. Your love and support truly means more than you will ever know! Let's do this...Nick Thomas

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges for this project include: Covering the cost of studio rental time, engineer costs, equipement rental, and other studio expenses. Album artwork, the printing of vinyls and cds, distribution and marketing. I also hope to tour this record, so proceeds from this campaign will go towards tour expenses. I have years of experience when it comes to working in a studio and creating new musical projects. With the support and funding from all of you, I can confidently say that if I reach or excede my goal of $15,000.00, I will be able to create, distribute and tour an album that I can take pride in showing off to the world! Also If this project excedes its goal, it will open the door to many more avenues for performing live shows on tour and for helping me create an even better sounding, higher quality album. For example, hiring an orchestra, bringing in a chorus ensamble, purchasing or renting new microphones or other musical equipement ect... All to be utilized and implemented on this new album!

  • During the writing and recording stages of this album, a video will be taken of me playing the piano for a track on the album. This piano will then be smashed with hammers and mallets! (also filmed) The pieces of this piano will be sent out to the pledgers as a way to own a little piece of the album and have as a souvenir. hope that helps!
