I'll just get right to the point: My new album as Yellowgold entitled Ever One is complete. I want to get it professionally mastered. You can help by going to Kickstarter and pitching in.
If you have followed the writing on this blog when I was super active (factoid: I had spare time before our second daughter was born three months ago) then you might already be familiar with some of the music on the album. This project is the next phase of my production.
From day one, my goal has been to write 9-10 songs about themes in my life, people I care about, stories I wish to tell, and all along, I planned to release this album for anyone who cared enough to listen. I didn't want to just throw together ten random tracks. I wanted cohesion in some way.
The Kickstarter page and video should answer any questions you might have about my plan for Ever One. But in case you don't make it over there:
The ultimate goal in the end is to release Ever One on Band Camp as a "free/pay what you want" album. This Kickstarter is the "pre" before the release. This is a way for you to pitch in before the album hits the web. Doing so in advance of the release would enable me to get the album professionally mastered so it sounds as good as it possibly can everywhere its played. It also means you can get it in other playable formats, score some hangable art by none other than Scott Johnson, get a second digital album full of alternate takes that illustrate my process of songwriting, and so much more. Plus, if the project is over-funded, I already have some stretch goals in mind. That means everyone benefits with even more stuff.
For those not interested in the music, take a look at some of the higher levels. I'm making myself available to you in an effort to help you improve the quality of your digital media productions, be it video for the web, podcasting, or music production. I love it all and would love to have a conversation with others trying to do the same thing.
So that's that. I hope you'll join me in bringing this project to the next stage.
