We want to record an album as the first order of business for this new band. Josh & William have years of professional experience in live concert production, mixing live Front of House and recording music. In addition to this experience, William has a BFA in Audio Production where he spent many hours writing and recording music for class projects. As part of GlowCreativeStudio he has written and recorded jingles and sound beds for videos for the past few years. We will be using this knowledge to record this project on our own. We already have an array of live production gear but we are raising money for some other necessary equipment for the recording process.
Where your money goes:
- Specific gear for the recording process
- Producer to accompany William's engineering
- Mass production of the album
- A few of the rewards
- The excess (if any) will go toward moving forward with other plans that we have for the band. Small Tours and Concerts, Promotion etc.
Where are we now?
We are currently recording the highest quality demo versions of these songs with our limited recording gear for the purpose of working out song arrangements.
The Purpose of One Day Dreamer:
One Day Dreamer is more than a band. It is a vision, a calling of sorts that frontman and lead songwriter William feels that he possesses. William sees One Day Dreamer as a launching platform to share his life and faith with whoever will listen.
Having grown up as a child in El Salvador, Carlos sees the vision for this band and has validated it based on his personal experience.
The strong spiritual parallels in the lyrics of a One Day Dreamer song stems from a daily life and journey that we are all on. This comes from the deep seated Christian faith that the guys in One Day Dreamer hold to. Using One Day Dreamer as a tool, the guys are actively working on ways to get to a few different countries where they have worked before on Mission and Humanitarian Aid trips.
With connections in The Dominican Republic, Haiti, Peru, Colombia, Panama and El Salvador, One Day Dreamer wants to get to the point where they can help host local music festivals in these countries. Local artists from some of these areas have already been found on other trips and are anxious to play a part. This will provide One Day Dreamer with many opportunities to help people along the way as well as the opportunity to share their faith.
