Welcome, welcome, welcome! I'm so happy you're here on Kickstarter for the official Album release of Walk on Water!
Update: We hit the initial goal in the first 12hrs! Wow! What!?
I’m so grateful to each and everyone of you who has pledged and also to supporters (Hello!!!) still to pledge (every single backer counts - even if it's just $1, it helps the campaign so much!)! I wanted to announce a few new amazing stretch goals and you’ll find them just below!
$7,500 Stretch Goal :: Adding an extra track to Walk on Water by collaborating with another musician before the release date! (drummer, violinist...or cello!) I will create a collaborative work that everyone will love!
$10,000 Stretch Goal :: We will be able to pay a crew to help create an amazing music video in unique places around Northern Michigan (I’ve found that it’s expensive to move a piano around). It will be so worth it! ||| Oh, and there will be a private, invite only digital concert I will be hosting for backers before the end of the project! You will be able to join me live and celebrate! Make sure to think of a song to request on the broadcast (details will follow if/when we hit the goal)
$12,500 Stretch Goal :: Hitting this would allow me to hire a local videographer (who is amazing!) part-time to work more closely with me! Instead of only being able to make cool videos once a month, I can create the best quality (professional level) videos every week. | There will also be a secret bonus gift added to every pledge of $20 or more that will be shipped to backers!
This can't happen without you! For years now, I've been playing concerts and making music...now it's time to finally release my first official CD/Album. Below you'll find a number of questions and answers that I hope give understanding to the goal for this Kickstarter and why I need YOU to help make this happen!
What is the main goal of this Kickstarter?
Pre-orders for my upcoming CD release, Walk on Water. All funds will be used for the new CD + gear for future music video production!
What is this first CD about? Why am I creating it?
I love all sorts of musical genres, but I’m a huge fan of piano music. I realized that while there are countless piano covers of pop songs, there's not much out there in terms of Christian music. So I started choosing some of the most powerful and beautiful current worship songs and prayerfully arranged each of them in my own style. Since there are no lyrics to them, it’s perfect background music to meditate to, study to, or work with. It’s designed to bring encouragement and to lift the spirits of everyone that listens!
Why do I need to raise the funds? What will the funds be going to exactly?
The funds will go towards finishing this CD + creating better music and video production. That includes all the licensing fees, production costs, designing of the CD, audio engineering, updating camera gear, instruments, music studio equipment such as a new computer, studio monitors, headphones, software, to all the costs that involve making a great quality music video (videographer, moving the piano, lights, and props, etc.)
When will Walk on Water officially release?
4/3 (All rewards will be shipping as the album goes live/releases!)
Will you ship internationally?
Currently, the process can be difficult for some countries so I have to take each inquiry on a case by case basis. If you will email Music@YoungMinYou.com with your desired pledge, I will work diligently to figure it out!
Thank you so much for being here! This can't happen without you!
If you have any questions, please feel free to DM me on Instagram (@YoungMinYou) or email me at Music@YoungMinYou.com, I'll be so happy to chat with you!
Risks and challenges
It’s almost there! There are very little risks associated to the project besides the financial part! Which is why I'm here on Kickstarter!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
