I’m very excited to announce the launch of a new Kickstarter for what I hope will be my 5th studio album Walking to the Light!
The campaign officially begins Friday March 4th with a special Kickstarter Kickoff Bash at Natalie’s Coal fired pizza and live music!
The full Matt Munhall Trio will be there for the night, and there will be an exclusive screening of the Walking to the Light video!
The show starts at 10pm! Tickets are $10, please call ahead, as it fills up fast!
Its my 34th birthday on 3/4, which can be spoken as March Forth!!! The new album is Walking to the Light…see all the connections!
This is the second time I’ve used Kickstarter in hopes of making a record. In 2013, with generous support of backers, I was able to make my 4th album 700 Miles with Brad Jones, Charlie Sexton and many other talented musicians in Nashville.
None of this would have been possible without all of you…
Over the last couple years I’ve continued writing new songs, and I finally think I’ve got the songs I believe in to make a new record.
You’ll hear one song about the perils of the music business, one about being blind and down in the gutter, another about true love being sacrifice. There are songs about tough decisions, burying hatchets, the first day of Kindergarten, a song about Charlie Sexton, oh and uh Walking to the Light.
So now its time to make a record!
The rewards for being a backer are even better this time. For example there’s a full length music video for the title track Walking to the Light, that will be exclusively released to all backers as they contribute…
Also we’ll be making a documentary about the process of making, Walking to the Light, start to finish. This reward is also an exclusive, available only to backers.
There will even be a collectable first time vinyl pressing available!
As always there will be a big release party and concert!!
The conservative release date is set for early 2017.
In this ever changing world, artists need community more than ever to come together and be a part of making the arts come to life. I’m very grateful for your support on this new journey, stay tuned for the official launch and find a level of support that works for you. Thank you for all of your love and support over the years….without it I wouldn’t get to do what I love, which is making music for all of you.
