The Silent Voice Within...

Shortly after releasing my first album Deep Inside The Mind, I started hearing the soft peaceful voice within. It was very faint at first, but what I was hearing kept growing into a beautiful theme. It was something new that I had not heard before. That theme was so simple yet so profound. It kept playing in my mind wherever I went, so I decided to record it on my sequencer. 

This is the theme:

As you heard, that theme was only a few notes long. But as soon as I had recorded the last note, something very special happened... I heard something else. I didn't force anything nor was it my intent to continue writing - it just happened. This kept happening for months - as if someone was carefully unveiling a very rich and well crafted musical piece. 

Evolving Seeds Of Glory

What started with the few simple notes you heard in the original theme became a full 2 hour musical journey. It's now been ten years, I feel that the musical work is ready to be heard as it was originally intended by the soft peaceful voice I heard within. 

Evolving Seeds Of Glory is a two part instrumental musical journey. All the music has been written, and only a few overdubs need to be added here and there. All bass parts were recorded by Randy George (Randy George project, Neal Morse band, Ajalon). Drums were recorded by Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard, Cirque du Soleil, Big Big Train). The second part will be recorded and released at a later point, first you need to hear the first part!

Check out a sample (recognize the theme?):

Where Is The Money Going?

All the funds will go directly towards the costs involved in finalizing this record. Although most has already been recorded, I still need to cover costs for mixing, mastering, album artwork, pressing the CDs, etc.

Kickstarter is an all or nothing crowd funding model, this means that if my goal is not reached, I don't get anything. That is why I am setting the goal to cover the minimum amount I need to get the album done. Anything above will be used to produce an even better product.

In other words, if you see that the goal has been reached, don't hesitate to still fund this project!

What do you get?

Besides helping me release this music which is so close to my heart, you will get unique rewards! There is something for every budget. Each backer will get a digital copy of the album once it's done.

You can also get an exclusive commentary version which will tell you about the songs as you listen to them and give you a unique perspective on the music you hear.

I will also reward some of you with free studio session work.

Keep an eye on this page for more rewards as we go (You can also update your donation at anytime to get access to higher rewards)!

I can not do this without your help, so thank you for your help! Being an artist today has its challenges, but your support and friendship makes it all worth it, so thank you!!

David
