Friends, Family, Strangers, etc.,
It is with great joy (and relief) that I announce the details of my new record, Sorrow Sings. This project has been my companion, of sorts, over the past three years, seeing me through many good times and bad. Thematically, these songs explore the concept of light and dark. Light and dark, not only as they exist in the physical world, but within ourselves, as well. And, in brief, I discovered that just as light cannot exist without the dark in a room, I cannot exist without the dark in me. So rather than running from it, or trying to change it, I welcomed it. I let it define me, and by doing so, my light began to shine brighter than ever before. I let my “sorrow sing,” if you will.
But that’s not what this project is about anymore. The songs have been written, and I’m a better person because of it. This project is now about you.
I turned to Kickstarter to finish this record because I love the idea of it not being possible without you. By contributing to this project, you are, in return, responsible for it. The mixing, the mastering, the pressing, and the experience of watching it spin on your record player will have only been made possible because you got it there. Whatever this record ends up meaning to people, I don’t know, but, for me, it doesn’t get much more meaningful than that.
All of the Kickstarter funds raised will go towards:
- Recording costs (studio time, musicians)
- Album Artwork
The $4,500 that I’m pledging won’t quite be enough to cover all of these expenses, but it will certainly be enough to get this project on its feet.
Thank you all so much for listening, and for caring about what I do. It’s going to be a fun year.
