Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/09/2014 -- (Press Release)—April 8, 2014—Multiple Chicago Music Award winner Graham Czach launches a Kickstarter campaign to independently release his follow-up EP After the release of his debut album ‘Lucid’ last 2010, Graham embarked on a journey of soul-searching and songwriting, “to inspire and make people feel alive,” he said.
Graham enthused, “I’ve been writing and recording new songs for the past 3+ years and have grown so much as a songwriter and musician in that time.” He has compiled almost 30 songs to sift through, “in order to find just the right 5 to 7 songs that are the best, to give you the best of the best!” One of the songs on the new EP was Produced with Bjorn Thorsrud (Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan, Dandy Warhols), while the rest are going to be produced, recorded and mixed by Manny Sanchez (PSY, Fall Out Boy, Umphrey’s McGee) and Greg Magers (Lupe Fiasco, Robert Glasper).
Graham launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $15,000 to be able to independently produce, record and mix his EP. The EP is set to be released in late June or early July once the crowdfunding campaign reaches its goal by April 20. Graham will be recording at the new IV Lab Studios in Chicago. “Everything coming out of there sounds amazing and this EP will be nothing short of that,” Graham promises. He adds, “We also have world-class professional musicians, Jonathan Marks (Hey Champ) and Dylan Jones (Rhymefest, Common), recording on this and the best equipment so we can bring you ‘that sound’, something by which you can recognize instantly and hits you right in the heart, flooding you with emotion.” The EP will then be taken to one of the best studios and consoles in LA to be mixed.
Backers of the campaign will get exclusive Graham Czach merchandise, such as limited edition signed EP CDs, digital downloads, stickers, signed T-shirts and posters, handwritten lyrics, “Thank You” credit on the website, limited edition vinyl copies, backstage passes, lessons, meet and greet, VIP guest listing on shows, and many more.
