SHORT SUMMARY 

Hello there my name is James Kenney. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon.  I started singing and writing songs at age 11 and haven't stopped since.  My dream has always been to share my voice with as many people as possible.  And through my second time on X Factor this season, I was able to do that.


I've been so grateful for all the support I've received.  People keep saying to me, "Don't give up." Well, your words have been a major inspiration.  People have also been asking for music, and this is my chance to fulfill your requests.  I'll be recording an EP trilogy to cover all my bases:  one entitled "Covers," comprised of songs I sang on The X Factor along with other cover faves of my own; a second called "Songs In 3/4," inspired by classic soul; and a third EP called "I Am James Kenney" that will be all new songs I will be writing just for this project. 

One of my favorite quotes is "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans," by John Lennon.  Because it's costly to make music, and I have a family to support, I haven't had the means to record a lot of my own music.  That's why your contributions are so crucial for me to complete this project and let my voice be heard. 


FUNDING THE DREAM

I need to raise at least $15,000 to get this project off the ground.  And, believe it or not, that's being conservative.  These EPs will be recorded in some of the best studios in LA and feature some of the most well-respected and accomplished musicians in the world.  My goal is to make all three of these EPs sound just as good as any record made by a major label.  The difference is their budget is hundreds of thousands of dollars.  But with the level of talent I have on my side, we will make these songs sound pristine and give you something quite special and beautiful to listen to. 

Please look to the right and see the list of incentives I've come up with for your pledge.  Pretty fun stuff all the way from just getting a single song for a buck to hanging for lunch to having me give you a private concert in your own living room.

If I don't reach my goal (which I pray doesn't happen), I will still record as much of the project as financially possible.  Even if it's just one or two EPs, I WILL get you some music to listen to.  That is the promise I make to you.


OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP

Some people just can’t contribute, and I totally get it.  But I can still use your help:
