Pre-Order "The Awakening" EP

$4,189 of $52,000 goal

Raised by 37 people in 15 months
Hello my friend,

Welcome to the Official Pre-Order page for my first solo record, The Awakening! My name is Matt Welsh and I am the singer-songwriter behind BLUVNBU (Pronounced B-LUV-N-B-U)

Take a few minutes and read on as I share my story. Explore the added benefits that are included in each package, as they intertwine together with the creation of my music. It has taken me many years of hard work, determination, and perserverance, including failed bands, tragedy, and countless mistakes to arrive at where I am and what I have created for you.

Over a decade ago, my father gifted me a drumset to get started on my musical journey. I never thought I could be a musician. Little did I know, that the next 10 years would lead me on the most life-changing journey I could ever have imagined. Before I knew it, I had gone from playing classic rock cover songs to playing sold out shows, including the Vans Warped Tour with my band Bright and Early.

And just when I thought my life and career were about to take off, something unexpected happened...


My girlfriend at the time had passed away at the age of 18. She was a beautiful, positive light, and her love had touched everyone. This traumatic experience sent me into a spiral of confusion, sadness, and depression. As I continued through my grieving process, I nearly LOST my will to live. Then one day... I WOKE UP!

I did all I could to shake my depressive state enough to search for answers and to start asking myself some deeper questions.

If I was going to pick myself back up and move on... I wanted to live without limitation. I needed to be Financially, Spiritually, Mentally, and Emotionally FREE.

I had explored freedom like my life DEPENDED on it.

I discovered many great teachers, authors, speakers, and more... and yet one man resonated with me most.


His name was Jonathan Budd and he had earned over 17 million dollars before the age of 30... by leveraging the internet and technology. His wisdom and experience combined with the support of my family and friends had pulled me out of this dark time.

Before I knew it, I was on stage crying in his arms and thanking him. Who would have thought that years later, I would be working alongside him to protect humanity from its single greatest threat... itself. We are now building the public benefit company Powur to help accelerate the adoption of sustainable energy for all life on the planet!

So, why does all of this matter?

Because the songs on this record outline my personal Awakening that resulted from ALL of these past experiences. You will relate to these experiences and feel empowered to be LOVE and be YOU like never before!

This also matters because the skills I have developed from these experiences have allowed for me to create 6 rewards (as shown below) that can help completely awaken you to your true potential and experience astounding breakthroughs that had taken me years to reach.

Did you remember when I launched a GoFundMe back in 2015?

I had tried to open a healing center. And after falling significantly short, the next two years sent me on a path of realizing one of my biggest life lessons to date...


The truth is, the healing center I wanted to open was actually within myself. It was "I" that had to become the healing center. The only way to realize this was to truly discover and embody the most loving expression of WHO I AM.

The real healing magic came from WITHIN me and from that, I have created the most powerful expression of my music which is waiting to be shared with you... And now there has NEVER been a better time to record and share this record with you.

Now, here we are...

And I could not think of ANYTHING else I would rather do than to have put together this collection of songs which highlight these life lessons and experiences, documenting the entire process, and packaging it into these rewards to be shared with YOU!

I just finished recording the record this week and there is still so much more to complete and to pay for. As an artist, without the support of my fans... I cannot continue to create the music you love.

With your support, I share with you all of the gifts that changed my life for the better and how they can change your life too!

Here are the reward packages for you helping bring this record to life! Please note: Rewards will be delivered as they are created, first beginning with the record and merch... then the eBook and course. You can't rush these things! Check it out...

Hello, Awakening supporter :)

I hope you had a happy holiday and happy new year!

If there is one valuable lesson I have learned from making this record...

It is that while deadlines are important, it is not wise to announce a release date for a product that is not completed... especially when that product is music.

This photo here demonstrates exactly where we are in the process... we are patiently waiting for the Producer to finish mixing and mastering the record :)

I am also still waiting for the album artwork!

Until these products are in hand, I cannot fulfill all of the rewards...

Therefore, I have decided to dedicate this YEAR to completing and launching this album successfully... without forcing or rushing the process.

I trust that your rewards will come together at the perfect time and will be so much more rewarding when they do arrive!

I am thankful everyday for your support to this project... stay tuned and we'll talk soon

Matt

P.S. Don't forget to watch the Awakening Docu-series out now on YouTube... the eleventh and final episode is on the way!
Music in the making!
Start with Episode 1 and keep going!

Hey,

I wanted to give you an update on The Awakening EP and share some news!

When it comes to art, it is often hard to predict WHEN it will be finished, especially when in collaboration with other artists.

I am still waiting on the finished songs from the producer and the cover artwork for the record BEFORE I can start mailing out the rewards.

The release date is currently set for New Years Day. You can expect to receive a digital download of the record as soon as it is ready and the physical rewards shortly after the release :)

For now, I have attached the FIRST episode of the docu-series for the making of the record... you can now watch all the way up to Episode 7! (Link below)

In other news, I am moving out of the cabin and I wanted to extend a REALLY special invitation to celebrate the release of the record HERE where it was recorded!

"The Last Retreat" will take place on Dec 9th and 10th in Orlando and will be $100 OFF the public ticket price for you to attend.

This will also help reach the goal of $5,000!

Thank you for your love, support, and patience as we experience the unfolding of The Awakening...

I hope to see you in Orlando! Feel free to contact me with any questions :)

With Love and Gratitude,

~//~

Hey, this is Matt and I wanted to let you know that the record is officially done being recorded! We were fortunate to have been booked in Nashville at the SAME time Hurricane Irma ravaged Florida.

I am thankful to report that my studio in Orlando, the cabin in the forest was NOT damaged by the falling trees, the strong winds, and massive flooding that took place. It is a miracle.

And so I am writing this email to extend an invitation for you to join me next month to celebrate the official release of the record! If you are looking for a fun getaway and need a vacation... this is for you!

Yoga classes, lodging, and healthy foods will be provided. We will hang out in the nature, tells stories, and I will include a live performance of the record from start to finish!

Spots are limited to 10 guests only and will go fast! Reserve your ticket on the GoFundMe page or just go to http://TheAwakeningEP.com

Sending love and blessing to you,

~//~
