ABOUT ME

"Healing the world through music"; that's my goal. It's no secret that the world is broken, and we don't need to know the "twelve keys to level up now," we need hope.

As a church worship pastor for 10 years at some of the most prominent churches in the Raleigh, NC area, I've always chosen to fuse my passion for helping people through Christian ministry with my passion for music. As I've moved into writing and recording my own music within the past few years, I've seen firsthand the healing that music can bring to a soul. I know it from the stories I hear about how a song of mine has led someone to Jesus, helped someone walk through depression, or deal with loss by turning their heart toward God.

 

I've  never been afraid to share my faith with the world. I have come to understand that God has a plan for me beyond what I ever imagined.

 

I AM TAKING THE STEP OF FAITH TO RECORD A MAJOR ALBUM.

THE PLAN

SONGWRITING - $0

I write almost all of my own songs by myself, occasionally enlisting the help of friends that work for back-end royalties.

 

RECORDING - $10,000

My goal is to have a week-long retreat with some of the greatest musicians, background vocalists, producers and songwriters I know where we can knock most of the recording out in one setting.

 

MIXING AND MASTERING - $5,000

Mixing and mastering is the secret sauce behind recording an album. Without it, any recording sounds unfinished and unprofessional.

 

MANUFACTURING, ARTWORK & DESIGN - $2,000

Making the album and all promotional materials visually appealing is important in helping to communicate the message in a visually appealing way, and the manufacturing is the process of creating physical CDs, vinyl, and other merchandise.

 

PROMOTION - $15,000

Living in the twenty-first century, most of us know that promotion is important to success. This promotion budget includes things like a music video, advertisements with CCM Magazine and other noteworthy Christian music outlets, and much more. Thankfully I have the guidance of my management, McLaughlin Music Group International, and my record label, LRAE Entertainment.

TOTAL : $32,000

There are many pieces that must come together to create a successful album. Below are a few bullet points to help you understand the planning and budgeting of this project.

MY TEAM

I am blessed to have a small team of volunteers, Pauline Dailly, James Schellhase, Dusty Pleasant and my parents, who come alongside this music ministry and bring wisdom, skill, and a make-it-happen attitude to my team. However, in addition to those amazing people, here are the folks I'm working with for this project.
