Andrew Rose Gregory is a multi-talented and ultra friendly independant musician who is in need of some funding. He has started a kickstarter project, in which they will only fund his project if he makes his donation goal. He only has 14 days left to get about $5000 in donations, so if everyone spreads the word and pitches in a small pledge to donate, his lovely album of "The Songs of Songs" can be released. Plus, he promises goodies in return. Here is how he describes it:
"Over the past 5 years, i've been working on an album based on The Song of Songs, an ancient love poem that most people know from reading The Hebrew Bible or The Old Testament.
While most of my albums in the past have been modestly arranged folk albums, this one has turned into a beautiful sprawler - an orchestral indie-folk-rock album with horns, a stand-up bass, a grand piano, & my sister-in-law Sarah singing half of the songs - as about half of The Song of Songs is spoken by a woman.
The songs span a whole range - - from tender duets, to brash up-tempo numbers in unorthodox time signatures, to these weird little instrumental duets that we improvised in the studio.
I recorded the album a year & a half ago, & while i really believe this is the most beautiful piece of music i've ever made, i've struggled to find a record label to release it. at this point, i'm scared that this record is going to be lost, & that people will never hear it.
But! this being the year 2011, i'm hoping that you & i can be the record label that this album needs, & get it out for the world to hear.
thanks so much for your help.
