About this project

Hey everyone,

My name is Shannon Kennedy and I am a singer/songwriter and saxophonist located in Southern California. I have been blessed with the opportunity to write and record music since 2005, and it's time for me to release a new album.

I've been working on Behind Your Eyes for quite some time and it features several talented musicians, a collection of original music, and it is the first time that my album's focus will be on singing.  This album is really different from anything I've done before, and it has been so much fun to work on. I'm also really excited to feature the talents of the multi-media artist, Gini Bailey, on the artwork for the album.

Behind Your Eyes is in the final recording stages and I'm really excited to share it with you. If you are interested in becoming a part of "the making" of my new album, here's where your contributions will go:

  • Recording costs
  • The cost of manufacturing CDs. 
  • Cool promotional materials (that you'll have access to first)

I'll be updating my progress on Kickstarter every week so you can stay in the loop on how the project is going. For as little as $1 you can get access to these exclusive updates and be involved in the production of my new album! I'll post Kickstarter-only videos and pictures so you know where your contributions are going and where I'm at with the project!

The album's expected release date in November/December 2012. There will be 11 songs on the album which I will announce one at a time to contributors along with acoustic video versions of the songs.

If I don't reach the goal, all of the money is returned to the backers, so the all the awesome rewards listed to the right won't be available. Help me reach the goal so that you can take advantage of these one-time only offers!

I greatly appreciate your support!

- Shannon
