Introduction

Greetings! I am very excited to share that I am working on my first CD, a collection of original music, titled Coolin’. The album is composed of ten songs representing my influences as a lifelong student of music, the many styles I’ve performed over the decades, and a broad range of fresh contemporary compositional concepts.  “Row Away”, in which I employ the 12-tone rows developed by the the classical composer, Arnold Schoenberg, is something of a hybrid form, while other tunes experiment with jazz and blues, as well as other non-descript, original forms.
PLEASE NOTE: This recording is a MIDI demo only and not to be confused with the expected quality of the final recording.
I would like to have the funds by end of June or July, realistically, so recording can begin as soon as possible. 

The Numbers

Your donation will go towards:

·      Musicians Fees

·      Studio Time

·      Mixing & Mastering

·      Mixing is the art of blending all the instruments together

·      Mastering is the fine tuning of the mix, making sure the music shines.

·      Social media costs – LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter (my big three), Instagram, YouTube, and others.

 
Impact / Influence

Bringing a project like this to market is a complex undertaking, and certainly, a rewarding one. But there are inevitable costs. With your contribution you can help make sure this music enters the world optimally prepared to be heard, appreciated and shared.

 

Other ways you can help

If you’re unable to contribute financially, but would like to help, please consider one or more of the following:

·      Share this campaign with friends, family, or colleagues

·      Share the campaign on Social Media

·      Share your ideas with me about other ways I might this spread word of this project

 
I would be so grateful for your support, since this project has had ups and downs the last few years.  Also, hearing the final music change people's lives for the better is always the goal.  

Thank you!
Kerry Kennard
