**STRETCH GOAL** $12,000 : The River House Fall Tour!
Once we release RIVER HOUSE, let's celebrate with a FALL TOUR -- The stretch goal will help to cover travel expenses, and pay musicians to travel with me. This means more shows and better shows for you guys -- and more people getting to hear the record we make!
WHO ARE YOU?
I'm Taylor Leonhardt, a singer-songwriter from Raleigh, North Carolina. I've been playing music for most of my life and writing songs since I was in high school.
Over the last several years I've released a couple of projects: first, an EP called Truest Things in late 2015, and most recently, recorded my song "Behold" for a collaborative EP called All Things New.
Now I'm ready to dive into my first full-length record, RIVER HOUSE. I think RH represents the best songs I've created to date and my growth as a writer and an artist. I am bursting to share this record with the world, and especially with you.
Independent musicians face a struggle when it comes to recording projects. Without the backing of a label, it can be difficult to finance the production needs of making a record. Many artists turn to crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter to invite their fans into the process. It's cool, because it keeps all the creative power and decision making with the artist, and creates more opportunities for us to connect along the way.
The $10,000 Kickstarter goal will cover production expenses, mixing & mastering, printing, video, artwork, + promotional content.
WHEN CAN WE HEAR RIVER HOUSE?
We're expecting to release RIVER HOUSE by late summer 2017, but will keep you posted with project updates and behind-the-scenes info along the way.
Risks and challenges
Maybe you won't like these songs at all, BUT...
I'm pretty sure you will.
