I've spent the last eight years touring and making music with my comrade Cameron Hood in our band called Ryanhood. We've had lots of fun, and shared stages with the greats like Jason Mraz and Matt Nathanson. Over the years and under the tutelage of my bandmate, I've grown from a lead-guitarist, to a harmonist, to a co-writer, and finally into a full-blown singer/songwriter. It's been a beautiful journey and I feel as creatively empowered as I've ever been.
So, to celebrate, I'M MAKING A RECORD!
The new project is called The Great Collision, and if you like albums like 'Parachutes' by Coldplay, or 'Continuum' by John Mayer, or if you like the magical soundtrack to the movie 'Amelie' by Yann Tiersen, or if you just really like my other band Ryanhood and you trust me, then you will like this music.
I've actually already begun making it. In fact it's well on it's way, so I'm not just wishfully thinking when I tell you it's good. I've heard it... it is! I just need some help to finish it (that means mixing, mastering, artwork, and replication for those of you who are familiar with the process). $1800 should just about cover it. If you should happen to give over and above that amount, you will be graciously helping me to cover my tour expenses, and travel to more cities as I traverse the country with the band to spread the music.
I'm planning on shopping this project to labels and management before releasing it, so for a few months, you Kickstarter folks will be the only people in possession of this record!
I will be sharing lots of updates with you throughout the process, including song previews, so climb aboard and hang on!
Thanks for your support,
Ryan David Green
