My name is Omer Cordell, I am a musician from Vancouver BC and I am currently working on my 2nd album for my music project called Trailight.
My first album was released this past November, it was a mesh of instrumental music with historic voice overs and it marked my very first musical effort ever.
The album was a reflection of everything that ever inspired me musically and making it was a tremendous experience. I learned far more than I expected to learn and I am thrilled on how everything turned out within such a short period of time.
Earlier this year, I started noodling around with some ideas which quickly started taking shape into another full length project. In contrast to what I've done on the first release in which I played all the instruments myself, I am now having guest musician appearing on the album. I'm thrilled, honoured and privileged to have to have these guys a part of the experience.
So who's on board so far; Ryan Van-Poederooyen. Ryan is best known for his work with Devin Townsend. He's one of the most hard hitting, articulate and creative drummers that I know of and I am ecstatic to have his thunderous imprint on the album
Jed Simon. Jed needs little to no introduction. If you're unfamiliar with his work with Strapping Young Lad and his current band Scar The Martyr then some might consider it a gap in one's musical intelect. I am honoured to have Jed play a guest solo.
Marc Dixon. Marc has one of the greatest voices I've heard. He's from Virginia and signs for a band called The Shallowz. I am thrilled to have him on the album.
I am hoping to confirm a few more guests as I get closer to the recording sessions.
And now to the point.
This coming project lays on the shoulders of one man, me. I am taking on the entire financial burden that comes with this. I don't have other band mates to split the costs with, no record label, no management Etc.
That being said, I would be thrilled to have all of YOU involved in the creation of this album as well.
With your support, I will be able to pay for the studio, engineer, equipment rentals, mixing, mastering and duplication.
My goal is to raise $5000 for this project and there's a list of things here that you can purchase to help achieve this goal.
I have 30 days to reach this goal and I really hope to make it. I have a profound feeling that this will turn out to be an amazing body of music. Thank you all in advance for your support. Lets make this happen!
Risks and challenges
Being mostly a self contained project, I see little obstacles in my way.
The only challenges I can think of is having some work done by others and have them done the way I envision them to be meaning, drum sound, mixing, mastering and artwork.
I will be involved 100% during the entire process of each chapter of this project and I will make this happen fluently.
