Hey guys! I'm Brian and my biggest dream is to be able to record my first CD and share my music with you and the entire world. Do you want to be a part of this journey?
More about me
As many of you already know, I was born and raised in Albany, New York, but I've been living in Spain for the past 6 years. Being raised in an Italian-American family got me very interested in learning more about my Italian roots which, eventually, led me to study abroad in 2009 for 4 months in Rome, Italy. There, I was able to meet different family that stayed behind when my ancestors immigrated to the States in the early 1900s.
It was an INCREDIBLE experience through which I was able to learn more about the culture, eat amazing food, meet so many great people, perfect my Italian and even perform in different places. In fact, that year, I recorded a demo CD almost entirely in Italian with some fellow Italian-American friends which made it even more special to me.
Music has always been an outlet for me to express myself. Whenever I'm happy, excited or feeling emotional in any way, the first thing I do is pick up my guitar and start working on a song. Many of my songs are the result of life-changing events that I have gone through.
Up until now, I've almost only been able to share my music with only family and friends, but that's not how I'd like it to be. As I said before, my biggest dream is to be able to share it with you and the entire world.
As a result, I have decided to take the next step and record my first CD which will be entitled "Mixed Emotions".
I have chosen a total of ten (10) songs from the collection of songs I have written over the years. These songs represent many of my own life experiences put to music and are among my favorites.
I have already begun recording in the studio, but the entire process is a bit expensive. To that end, I have decided to do a Crowdfunding campaign through which all of us can be a part of this project and, TOGETHER, we can help make this dream of mine come true. :)
Any amount received that exceeds the crowdfunding goal will be used exclusively on my music.
-- You will not be charged if we do not reach the Crowdfunding goal --
The great thing about Crowdfunding is that anyone who makes a contribution will receive one or more gifts in return, ranging from my new CD, t-shirt, lunch or dinner or even a private concert at your home, bar or event. All rewards are specified on this campaign page for anyone who is interested in joining me on what I hope will be a journey to fulfill my lifetime dream.
When will everything be ready?
I've already begun recording and, if all goes well, I'll finish recording in January, and I'll receive the final product and be able to deliver everything to you by the end of February or at the CD Release concert in Elda/Petrer (Alicante) -- I'll confirm the date and location as soon as possible.
Last but not least
I want to say THANK YOU for your interest in my new project and for helping me reach my dream. I'll keep you updated on the progress of the campaign, as well as other information pertaining to my music on my social media pages below:
