ALBUM FUNDING CAMPAIGN

Greetings from Eric Howell in the studio! I am releasing new recordings this year and I am reaching out to you, in hopes of crowdsourcing the project.  We're getting close, very close, folks!  As you may know I released my first album, "Greatest Hitch! Vol one" in 2009, along with a subsequent movie.  I'm ecstatic to report I've never heard a bad review.  Ever.  The positive feedback has been fostered in not just one follow up album, but two:  Greatest Hitch Vol 2 (almost completed) and the debut album from my new band, King Mixer.  Why two albums? What's the difference between them?  Greatest Hitch (both Vol 1 and Vol 2) are collections of songs I wrote and recorded many many years ago with old pals. King Mixer, by contrast, is a new collective of my most talented friends recording new songs, capturing a more relevant moment in modern musings. In short, there's my music of the past and my current music of the future and I believe both sets of songs deserve a launch into the world. Many of you agree, thankfully. Upon release of this music, lives will be changed forever. Media will begin paying attention.  TV and film scores will place us in their programming. Legions of people will begin queuing up to see the band.  Jimmy Fallon will have us on.  We believe these songs have the power to change the world and certainly raise the bar in the careers and lives of everyone involved with King Mixer. The goal is to begin tracking in May 2014. I am putting my own money into this project, but in addition, all money raised from the GoFundMe campaign will go towards pro recording studio costs, CD and vinyl pressings, video production, media blitzing. All songs will be available for download worldwide, via iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and other outlets.  When this happens it will be because of YOU, because you believe, just as as I do, that there's something special happening in this music, and that it's worth sharing.  Of course, there are perks in the package for YOU. So here we go.  It's time for action.  I hope you'll scan the options, make a pledge towards this goal and be part of the story. Any contribution helps and I'll keep you updated on progress. I look forward to playing the new songs for you, and thank you for your support!
