In May 2016, I bought a 1987 Ford Coachman intending to set off for a new life on the road. I was in the midst of a writers block and knew I needed to make a change. That change came in the form of 4 tours and 40,000 miles over the next 2 years. I knew immediately that I couldn't keep all those miles to myself. They had to add up to something greater than every day just passing by, one after the other. I chose to work towards making them something that would live beyond myself. To set them to melody and give them a voice.
Slowly, all these stories, places & people infused themselves into my writing. They came pouring out into a body of work I hope to call my next album. If you've been to one of my shows in the last year, you've heard just how much this journey has affected me. I want you to experience all the places I've fallen in love with when you listen to these songs. To sleep in the canyons, walk through the deserts and see the stars in every forest that has inspired my last 2 years of work.
Risks and challenges
I believe this new album is my most exciting work yet and will hopefully be a launching point for my career and future. But no project of this size is made alone. Because of this, I am asking for you support in bringing this new album to life. This project is all or nothing, so if the $8,000 is not met in total no credit cards will be charged and the album will not be made. However, if the $8,000 money can still continue to be raised (See stretch goal below). Every little bit helps! I know $8,000 sounds like a large budget, but this is the bare minimum I can use to make this album. Studio time, printing, mixing and mastering take up the bulk of the budget.
If this album is funded in full I will be going to a recording studio in Nashville, TN on October 25th for 2 weeks.
Goal: $8,000 - Musicians hired, studio time booked, mixed, mastered, & printed
Stretch Goal: $10,000 - Everything above + a radio/print marketing campaign
Thank you to everyone who has supported me on the road in the last few years and throughout my musical journey. I am so excited to start this brand new chapter TOGETHER!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
