I’m tremendously grateful for your support over the years. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a while since I’ve released a complete album and/or video. And, the release of my Peace Process Album has been delayed.
I’ve had a total of four singles from the Peace Process album released online - ‘Suspicious,’ ‘I am Shem,’ ‘Blessed,’ and ‘King Queen Riddim’ - which have received great response and reviews from both fans and media.
By Yah’s grace - and with help from many of my fans, friends, and family - my previous fundraiser on PledgeMusic allowed me to raise PART of the funds toward my album Peace Process (a total of $1,500 of the $10,000 needed), which helped me finish the first couple of singles from the album (‘I am Shem,’ and ‘Suspicious’).
Since that time, I’ve been moving at a snail’s pace, investing my own money and working with my small team to complete the album. Although it’s taken longer than expected, the good news is, I have now been able to finish 80% of the songs for the Peace Process Album (these 2 singles, plus 6 more), as follows:
I am Shem*
Heal the Earth
That leaves me with this dilemma - I still have 3 crucial songs to complete in order to release the album:
1) Lay Down Your Guns (with original music)
2) Black and Lovely (Heartbeat riddim)
3) Holy Mount Zion (Road riddim)
Your generous contribution to this album fundraiser will allow me to do the following in record time:
*Finish recording, mixing, mastering the remaining 3 songs on the *Peace Process album ($2,000)
*Take a professional photo shoot for album and related press ($500)
*Complete the album cover design ($500)
*Secure disc manufacturing ($1,200)
*Purchase a semi-pro video camera to record more music videos like the ‘Yah Yireh’ video, which has almost 200,000 views on youtube. ($600)
[Previously released bonus tracks to be included on the album are: Happy is He (remix), Bless Africa, Dem Dey Children, Babylon Food, Yah Yireh]
Help me bring more healing music to the world by making a contribution to this album fundraiser today.
