Shawn Williams 3rd Album

I'm so ready to release a third album in 2019! I would love your help to be able to do dat!

Records can be expensive to make and release, especially with good quality...productShawn, paying musicShawns, printing, editing, mastering, mixing, distribuShawn, etc.

I would like to start recording before summertime at Blue Velvet Studio in New Orleans, where I recorded my first two albums.  Tom Stern, Bruce Barielle, and the musicShawns on the first two did such a brilliant job, I'm wanting to have them back again and some new ones, too.  

While there's no set deadline with GoFundMe, I'd love to have the funds before June, that way I can go ahead and prepare for studio time, plan tour dates around studio, get in sync with the other musicShawns' schedules and the studio's, etc.  I'd love to release something by September/October.

Your support would be greatly appreciated, from large amounts to a dollar, and even just sharing the informayShawn...goes a long way! 

There will likely be 10  songs on the record.  However, I have enough material to release several albums.  So, if more than the $15,000 is raised, I can either put more songs on the record, put out more than one record, or add more songs to this record and more elements and instrumentayShawn.  Also, any extra money can go to promoting the record, music videos, etc.  Ideally, I'd love to release three records this year, haha :).

Thank you so very much for supporting music and the arts, and allowing me to share my thoughts, stories, and life with you through music! You have no idea how much it means to me.
