My name is Reggie Williams. I'm a musician based in Orlando, FL.
I’m creating a new EP and planning my FIRST national tour. I want to invite you along on the adventure!
Here’s one of the new songs I want to record!
A Brief History. When I was 13, I began writing and recording music. I started performing live, and people started connecting to the music. So I made 2 home recordings, of 9 songs each, called Songs For Stories and Learning To Live. You can hear and download them for free by clicking the links.
When I moved on to FSU’s Music School, I wrote more songs, and knew I wanted to do something of better quality that would convey the ideas better. So I saved up, went to my buddy Robby (who had a nicer house set up than mine) and released the Change EP in January of 2012, which you can hear below.
I started playing more and more shows, and started to gain some traction. People started really attaching themselves to the content.
It began to mean a lot to some people.
My longtime friend Chris Martignago saw something in the music, so we decided to partner to try to create a world and a life around the music.
Since then we’ve been able to play tons of shows, showcase at festivals, perform on live television, and meet A LOT of beautiful, sincere people. Some of them have actually decided to join up with us, and help us along the way in building the team and infrastructure that will allow us to actually Realize The Dream.
Here they are! The Realize The Dream Team!
Along the way we’ve been offered certain opportunities from companies that had a particular vision for what we were trying to do.... but we decided that it’s about YOU, the listener, first and foremost.
So that brings us to where we are now.
We want to record a new EP, and get out on the road.
6 new songs on record, some new merch, and 41 days on the road,
from Orlando, Florida all the way up to Montreal, and back.
The money that we will hopefully raise from this kickstarter will allow us to do that in a manner that preserves our integrity, strengthens our outreach, and most of all, places YOU front and center in the whole process.
On the right you can check out our rewards that you can earn by helping us with The #RealizeTheDream project. If we don’t reach our goal, we see $0 of the money, and it is all refunded to you, but our project won’t happen. EVERY single dollar counts.
You can see where each dollar is going in the Risks and Challenges section.
If you have any questions, concerns, or just wanna tell us something feel free to contact me.
Lets Realize The Dream!
