Shawn Williams 3rd Album

$607 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 1 month

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 (or at least a little more than half of it) raised by March, 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 August.

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 10-12 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.

Thank you so much to everyone that has made a donayShawn and/or shared the informaShawn about the third album!!!

On my home from my gig in Shreveport, yesterday, I came up with the album title! It actually involves a song that I wrote a few weeks ago. I'll share the album title once we reach $5,000.

Discovering my album title/title track helped focus even more of the directShawn I want the album to go in.

$305 raised, so far. I'd like to have everything raised by mid-March so I can start recording before summer (musicShawns I want on the album tour a lot during summer). If we get to at least $7,000 by March, I'll go ahead and feel secure enough to hop into the studio.

I'll post a little snippet of another new song that I wrote a few weeks ago, some time this week.

Thanks for the support!! :D
