Prelude to a Kickstarter
So, the time has come again for me to record, and with that comes a plea for your help. In the next few days I'll be launching another Kickstarter campaign. For those of you who have been with me for quite some time, you know I had a Kickstarter for my last EP, 'Vices', I want to thank all of you who helped make that dream a reality. This time, the dream is a little different. I have already secured studio time (once again in El Paso with Ross, but this time at his new studio Brainville). What I will need help with is the mixing and mastering process, as well as the pressing to vinyl. That's right, for my first full length LP, I'll be releasing it only on vinyl. Obviously, it will be released digital for the 90% of people who contribute and listen on their phones/devices, but pressing to vinyl has always been a dream of mine.
Additionally, I have decided that I'm going to donate 100% of the proceeds (once I've covered the cost of paying a studio/session drummer, mixing, mastering, art work/design, and pressing to vinyl).
I'll be donating 33.3% to Planned Parenthood, 33.3% to the ACLU, and 33.3% to the NRDC. While I do want to be a full time, working musician, and make my living playing, writing, recording, and performing, some things are bigger than me. I believe that the world in which we live in is in a particularly crucial time, and at this point I want to contribute everything I can to making things right and making the world a better place.
I hope you're all with me
