Who am I? 
My name's Tim; thanks for stopping by my page!

Ever since I started playing music I was writing my own songs.  After years of playing in bands I decided to take a different, more terrifying approach...solo. 

I entered the studio in January to start recording my first, self-funded solo album, "Home".

The tracks are coming together just as I had hoped and I'm excited to finish. I've had so much help from some brilliant musicians that have helped perfectly capture the sound that I've been looking for.


OK, What's this all about?
It's getting to that time to put this thing together in a tangible format, and I have an idea. I don't want to make this all about me, why not make it a collaboration? So, I've enlisted some of the most talented visual artists I've ever had the pleasure of meeting to contribute! 

My dream is that every song will have its own unique visual experience by its unique visual artist.



Rather than just a disc with some tracks on it, I want this album to be a collection of works from all over the country by many exceptionally different people!

Why support me?

The money raised through this campaign will fund the pressing of "Home" on both CDs and vinyl records, the cost of the front and back album artwork, and each corresponding piece of art created for the songs by the different visual artists in the lyric booklet.

When I reach my goal this will give these artists a new outlet, a whole new way of reaching people through my music.  And it gives you, the listener, an immersing audio and visual experience...and a chance to not only support one artist but over a dozen all in one contribution.

If you get a moment, please watch the video on this page and stay tuned in for updates and teasers.

I am so thankful for you taking time out of your life to consider helping not only me, but all of the wonderful artists helping me to make this collaboration a reality. 

Yours,
-Tim Leavy

Let me start off by apologizing for not updating you all in such a long time. Things have been moving incredibly fast. I certainly did not mean to leave you all in a lurch. Now, let me thank you all so much! We did it. The CD's are pressed and have arrived. They look better than I could have ever imagined and I think you all will be very pleased. I will be shipping them as well as a t-shirt as soon as possible but definitely before I leave for tour. If you have not yet emailed me your address, please, do so as soon as you receive this message with your desired t-shirt size to timleavymusic@gmail.com. This information will remain completely secure and private. However, I cannot send them to you if you do not get me this information.
Thank you all so much for your support and donations. I will be hosting a CD release party on February 4th at Hops on Birch in Flagstaff, AZ and the tour begins on February 9th in Los Angeles, CA.
Stay up to date here > https://www.timleavy.com/tour
I hope to hear from all of you soon and I can't wait to get this in your hands.
Alway the best to all of you,
-Tim

PS
Vinyls will eventually be pressed, I promise! Please, keep in touch about those and I WILL get them to you as soon as I can.

Good morning, all of you amazing supporters! I am currently trying to email you all copies of the digital release, but I need your help one more time. Please, when you have a moment, email timleavymusic@gmail.com just a little note. It could be "hello", it could be just a smiley face, or, if you'd like you could include your address so that when the T-shirts and CD's are complete I can send them to you.
GoFundMe will not give me your direct email, so, unless you do this, I have no way of getting you the things you deserve. Your personal information will be completely secured by me and will not be provided to ANYBODY! EVER!
Please, help! I want to give you this album that we have all worked so hard to create. It would never have been possible without you!
Thanks, again!
-Tim

Great news! We've got the problem fixed, but I will not be release until next Tuesday! By then the PDF Album Booklet will be complete and we should be able to get everything out digitally in one fell swoop. Since you have all been so patient and generous here is your peak into what's ahead. Below is a link to the complete and mastered tracks as well as MOST of the art. Just for you, the donors. Thank you all so very much!
