I’m back producing another album with the Reverend John DeLore. This time, the Rev is need of your help. In addition to recording the whole album live in the studio in three days, John’s cousin Keegan filmed the session, as well as a bunch of interviews & some artsy footage of the city. It’s going to be a very cool trans-media album release, which is where most of the extra cost is building up.
Take a look at Kickstarter to get a taste of how the album looks and sounds.
If you like what you see, become part of the project with a pledge. You can pledge as little as $2 or as much as $2000…whatever’s good for you. There’s a list of incentives on the page, and the more you donate the more you get back (i.e. hand-typed lyric sheets, limited edition posters, and you can even request a cover song for $150 pledge!).
The title of the album is Songs From Church Avenue and is a love story set in a city in late Autumn. It begins with the line, “The dress she wore was the color of envy.” The album’s intended release date is Late Autumn, 2011. This will be the third studio album from the Reverend DeLore that I’ve been involved with and I gotta say that this is by far his best work to date. Understated, mature and moody.
John’s cousin M. Keegan Uhl has won awards for his directing, editing and cinematography and his celebrated work includes commercials, music videos and shorts, one of which recently won Canon’s Beyond the Still contest featured on Vimeo and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
