Help Me Make My 2nd Album!

Hi I'm Dustin!

I'm a singer-songwriter from Hawaii and I'm currently trying to make my 2nd full length album!

I released my first EP (5 song CD) in 2013 and first album in 2015. BOTH on my own dollar! But this time around I need your help! Now that I've moved out and started living on my own in Hawaii, saving money for any kind of musical project has been extremely difficult. Mostly due to cost of rent here and having much..... much more bills since graduating grad school (student loans are the bane of my existence lol). It's not impossible, but would take years just to fund half of this album. My goal is to get the album done before I'm 30. I turn 29 this October haha

I've been playing music for 10+ years and have had so many joyful experiences with live shows and being in and out of the recording studio. I love creating and sharing :). Music is a huge passion for me and I truly believe this time around I've written some of my best work. I would very much appreciate any help you guys are willing to donate in order to help me bring these songs to life. The album will be FREE once it's all done! Yep, free streaming, downloading and physical copies!

The money raised here will be used to pay for studio time and paying select musicians who will be  on the album. I am planning  to pay for the manufacturing of the album (printing of multiple physical copies) out of my own pocket. I just need the most help with studio costs :).  It is my goal to write music to encourage others, and ultimately glorify Christ :). Any help is appreciated! God bless!
