So, if you don't know already, I have been one of two people obnoxiously pushing a kickstarter campaign
for the last 3 weeks.
The newly formed duo (Me, and Jesse Crowley)
called "Tiny Boats
" has been working on their debut album since early March of this year.
Tiny Boats' music could be classified as the energetic and pensive fusion of gospel and punk, and I first saw Jesse's lyrics for a Tiny Boats song, I believe, in October of last year.
At that time, my previously existing studio
was being otherwise occupied, as my new studio
was being built... As such, I had no studio to work in.
The new studio, Art City Sound, was in business the last week of February, and has continually had clients coming in ever since. During that time, Jesse and I have been working on Tiny Boats when time would permit.
Well, things got so busy here, that there was little, to no time to work on Tiny Boats, and funding was getting scarce, so we decided to see if we could gather up enough funds to finish up the remaining 3 songs (7 being done, or very close to done)
After about a week or two of brainstorming, Jesse started the kickstarter campaign, and within 2 days, we were 40% there. After that, it kept creeping up, and getting closer.
Well, today, I woke up to Jesse's excited message "WE MADE IT!!!!" - so I looked, and sure enough, we had passed the $2,500.00 mark.
Yeah... That's two thousand, five hundred dollars... unbelievable.
So... I sit here typing, hoping to somehow show, through words, the extreme gratitude, and humility I feel at such an amazing outpouring of support for music. ...and this is really, really good music.
I can't thank you all enough for your support, and I can't wait to spend this month honing and polishing what is sure to be a fantastic album to all who take the time to listen.
From the very first time Jesse approached me, I somehow knew this album would be something special. I just didn't know so many of you would think so, too.
From a very humbled and grateful place in my heart - Thank You.
