Jake Penrod Brand New CD and Vinyl

Dear Fans and Friends:

It’s been four years coming, but I am finally putting together another full-length album. Since 2012, when I recorded “Closer to Me”, a lot has changed. Lots of new songs have been written, and I feel like I have grown as a writer, singer, and player.

This new album is shaping up to be the best thing I’ve ever put out. I’ve taken my best songs, added a few songs by some good friends of mine, and think I have got a hot one on my hands. Here’s the deal: I need your help. Albums are expensive, and going at this without the assistance of a record label, I’ve got a few expenses to cover: Studio time, musician fees, compact disc production, vinyl production, packaging… it all adds up to more than this cowboy makes.

Now, I wouldn’t ask for help without offering something in return; I’ve got a host of rewards packages to match your contribution, no matter how big or small. I’ve never been this excited about a project before, and every little bit will get me closer to bringing it to life.

Thanks in advance, from the bottom of my heart, for your support. I promise you will be proud of the result, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
