Hello There. My name is Robert Gomez. I am a musician, among other things, and am starting out to make a recording of new music. The last studio recording I made was in 2013 (Earth Underfoot released 2014) which concluded my second successful Kickstarter campaign.  

I have spent the last two years mostly taking a much needed hiatus from music and pursuing other passions. Recently however, I have been compelled to write and so have begun recording demos, some of which have been posted on social media and on my bandcamp.  If you have watched or are watching the video above then you are listening to a demo of one of the songs now entitled "introduction" (recorded on an iphone). 

Rather than ask for donations, I’m asking for pre-orders of the finished recording. As a backer, once the work is completed you get an exclusive physical version of this recording with an immediate download code. I will also send you whatever demos I have of the record while I am finishing the final project. You are not allowed to like the demos more than the final recording. 

The $1,000 goal will go towards a studio recording (no it won't be recorded at Abbey Road), beers for the drummer, mixing, manufacturing, artwork and Kickstarter’s fee, and payment processing fees (10%). No, it won't cover it all but I'm also contributing to the cause. Ch-Ching!

Note: Thus far, I've seen every successfully funded campaign to fruition and this will not be any different (No, I won't spend the money on pull tabs, promise)! 

In final, I'd like to leave you with the words of John Cage: "I have nothing to say/ and I am saying it" 

Thank you for reading.

-Robert
