I’m excited to share that we are almost to our goal of $8000 to fund the recording, overdubbing, mixing, mastering, production, and distribution of my latest album, For the Love of Western Swing. While the major labels spend six figure amounts to create a product of this caliber I'm certain our independent project will be candy to your ears.
Here's a sample from the recording; it's the title track "For the Love of Western Swing."
There are a few harmony vocals left to do with Bobbie Flores, Pauline Reese, and Mike Blakely then we'll go through the process of mixing with my longtime Marble Falls friend, Rex Schnelle, who was once the studio production man for Sony and Sony/Tree. After the mixing process we'll master at Terra Nova Mastering in Austin, Texas, the folks who master many of your favorite artists' recordings. The next step is the manufacturing of the album with Disc Makers and the online distribution through CD Baby.
My thanks to all of you who have shared the Indiegogo campaign link and those who have contributed to the project. If yow know anyone who loves traditional western swing, Country Music, Tex-Mex, or singer-songwriter driven music please share the link with them: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/for-the-love-of-western-swing/x/20656177#/
