Over the past few months, I’ve been tracking and mixing my new album, DREAMIST, in my little attic recording studio. Things are really starting to come together and I can’t wait for you to hear how it’s all sounding. These new songs are so meaningful to me, and I hope that they will be to you as well.
Although I have been able to complete the majority of this project on my own, there are certain aspects of finishing DREAMIST that I need help from others with:
Mastering – $1000. The album needs to be mastered by a sound engineer. The purpose of this is to balance the recordings sonically, and to optimize the way the songs sound on different devices. If you think of this album as a car, mastering is like the deluxe car-wash: clean & shiny (super-sealant wax coat included).
Packaging – $500. The album art for DREAMIST is a beautiful watercolour painting, and we will be designing and printing 500 limited-edition, full-colour prints that include a download code of the full-length album. Also, for the first time ever, we are making t-shirts! Really nice ones too.
So, here’s how you can help.
The truth is, this isn’t just about the money. There are many other ways that you can support this album, including sharing my music with your friends and coming to shows. I can’t thank you enough for encouraging and supporting me over the years – I wouldn’t be where I am without all of you.
If you would like to directly support this album financially, please visit my campaign page. I’ve even put together some ‘perks’ that I thought you’d find interesting. All of the items will be mailed out shortly before the official release this fall.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
