Thank You for becoming a kickstarter backer for what I hope will be my 5th album Walking to the Light. My name is Matt Munhall. I’m a full time songwriter and performer from Columbus, Ohio. This is the second time I’ve used kickstarter in hopes of making a record. In 2013, with generous support of backers, I was able to make 700 Miles album with Brad Jones and many other talented musicians in Nashville. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39heoYBYS4w

None of this would've been possible without folks like you… Over the last couple years I’ve continued writing…. When the record is finished, you’ll hear one song about the perils of the music business, one about being blind and down in the gutter, another about true love being sacrifice. There are songs about tough decisions, burying hatchets, the first day of Kindergarten, a song about Charlie Sexton getting back in the army, oh and uh Walking to the Light!

  So now its time to make a record with Brad Jones in Nashville!!!  And, the rewards for being a backer are even better this time. For example there’s a full length video for Walking to the light, that will be exclusively released to all backers as they contribute… There will even be a collectable first time vinyl pressing available.

The album will be released in two intimate shows, Saturday and Sunday of MLK Jr. weekend 2017 in my hometown of Worthington, Oh at The McConnell Arts Center (Capacity 210). It will feature a crew of pro musicians backing me up like all my release shows before....

When you choose your pledge today, not only will you get the reward associated, you will be investing in this record being the best it can be.

This is a process I’ve been through four times now. So, here’s the guts of the cost of making a record: Demos, Preproduction, Production, Studio fees, Hiring Musicians, Tracking, Mixing, Mastering, Artwork, Design, and Manufacturing. Each of these steps are essential to making a great recording, but they are expensive. In Addition to these essentials, one can help their album reach more people with publicity, promotion, merchandising, and touring.

In this ever changing world, artists need community to come together and be a part of making the arts come to life. If you got this far, I know you are an Arts supporter. I’m very grateful for your support on this new journey, please check out all the backer levels and rewards and choose one that suits you. Thank you for all of your love and support over the years….without it I wouldn’t get to do what I love, which is making music for all of you.

Risks and challenges

There are no guarantees, right? Well, I can give you my word that I'll do everything I can to overcome any obstacles that rise up in the process of bringing album to fruition. This is my fifth time making an album, and with your support, come hell or high water, you'll be celebrating having it in your ears and hands with me come mid January 2017!
