Well I have good and bad news. The bad news first. My crowd funding campaign was a total fail. I did however manage to raise 800 of the 2000 but with it being an all or nothing deal i did not recieve any money and it was returned to those who donated it. If you are one of the people who tried to send some cash my way I am very very grateful! Its fans like you who keep me trying to improve and release new music. That fail will not stop me from moving forward and recording a new album. It just wont be as big or as soon as i was aiming for.
OK now The good news.
I scraped up what money i could and went back into the studio for another 3 days of recording. We got a lot accomplished and some songs are finally coming to life! I think with 3 more days i can probably have it finished up. So im saving for that now. Then i will start saving again to take the next steps of manufacturing, promotion, advertising and touring. All very expensive yet essential aspects of releasing a succesdul album. I wanted to release the new album this spring or early summer. Had i reached my crowdfunding goal that would have happend. Now i am honstly unsure of a release date simply because i really want to do it right this time. I dont want to be just throwing it out there with no money to push it or to tour with. Saving up that kind of cash is going to take awhile. I remain optimistic and positive that it will be worth the wait. If it has to be a year from now than so be it. I may be back in Canada at that point and if so will certainly do some touring.
Thank you for your support, your attention and your patience. Good things come to those who wait!
