This is the second release from Daniel Clingman (me). It is the first full studio engagement and is quite ambitious; calling for Orchestral tones and choir in parts. I've been gigging and schlepping tunes in Chicago for a few years, doing it seriously for a little over a full year now.
I hope to bring my songs to full fruition and get the music out of my head and into your hands. The first album was me and my guitar and was titled "Something Missing". This one is big and robust (I hope), and therefore is called "Something Found".
What We Need & What You Get
To make this happen I need to get into the studio for a good amount of the recording. I have some capabilities in my home studio for digital and electric recording, but not for singing, acoustics, a choir (that's probably on-site), and drums. I need to do those right.
I'll need to fund:
- Studio Time
- A Small amount of Gear
- Mics for Choir recording (on their site)
- CD production
- CD case production
- Artwork creation
- Download cards
If you fund me you'll be able to claim perks ranging from a download of the album to a house concert or event of your choice - within reasonable travelling from Chicago. Plus, there's lots of stuff in between: VIP concert TIX, Sign merch, etc...
Here's the fun part. I'm using young, aspiring musicians for some of this. I intend to use the choir of my high school alma mater for a song. My drummer is a percusion student who graduated from the High School I work at. I am going to have another former student perform on a song he co-wrote with me for his HS graduation. Yet another may act as guitarist on a couple of tunes. A good deal of this album will be a teaching moment for these young musicians and singers. A way for them to see what making music can be and have their stamp on a piece of it forever as a performer and co-writer.
If you can't contribute...
I get it. Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:
- Spread the Word
- Share with anyone you know who can
- Help me reach a dream of mine and teach some oung adults in the process.
That's all I have for now... Thanks for the help.
