Beginning September 15th, you’ll be given a special opportunity to support my art and the creation of my next album by donating to a campaign on Kickstarter.com.
To get a sense of what I’m going for, and to support a fellow songwriter, Josh Garrels, please check out this Vimeo video he and a friend made: http://vimeo.com/42373598.
Josh is extremely talented and I have a ton of respect for him; and in the video above, he articulates my own desires as a songwriter in a way that I have never been able to do. He pretty much explains the DIY mentality and how many songwriters approach their art and creative process.
For more information, check back soon! And, you can read my blogpost, here: http://jaymathes.blogspot.com/2012/08/thoughts-on-kickstarter-my-new-campaign.html
I’m looking forward to beginning the recording process for my next studio record. I have a catalog of new songs almost ready to go, and I know this will be my best work yet. But I need your help to make it happen. Please head over to my webstore and make a donation towards my next album. I’ll be offering all sorts of cool things to all of my donors. Yes, it’s old-school arts funding with benefactors and all. Please consider being a part of my new album in this meaningful way. I’ll make sure it’s worth your while.
