***2014 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards***

I have EXCITING NEWS! I am incredibly honored to announce that I WON the 2014 RightOutTV Fan Fave Award! A HUGE heartfelt THANK YOU to all of my family, friends, listeners and fans who voted for me. This would not have happened without YOU as this contest was based purely on public voting. You have no idea how much your support means to me. It is what keeps me going. THANK YOU!

As if THAT's not exciting enough, I'm also incredibly honored and proud to announce that my song, "One Time Around," off my new album, Out Among The Wolves, WON the 2014 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards Song of the Year! WOW! A HUGE heartfelt THANK YOU to RightOutTV and all of the judges. I am beyond thrilled!


Listen to "One Time Around" here:

https://soundcloud.com/seekevsing/one-time-around-1



***Your VOTING is WORKING!!***
 
Guess who's on top of both the Album and Song Charts?  THIS GUY!  And it's BECAUSE OF YOU!  Keep up the voting to keep "Out Among The Wolves" on the top of the Album Chart and "Today" on top of the Song Chart.  

I would love and appreciate your monthly vote for the OutVoice Top 10 Song/Album Charts. OutVoice is the oldest and only active GLBT Musicians CD ranking system and has been online since 1996. Thanks to all of you, Out Among The Wolves and "Today," have been rising steadily in the charts.  Vote once a month and help me stay on top! I've been asked if it is OK to only vote for my album and a song of mine without voting for any other albums or songs. As far as I know, that is fine. To the best of my knowledge you are not required to fill in all of the blank voting spaces. ***A friendly reminder that you may only vote once per month. If you vote more than once per month, your original vote will be disqualified.*** Thank you so much for your support!

***2014 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards***

I'm so excited and honored to announce that I've been nominated in 4 categories in the 2014 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards! My song, "Falling Away," has been nominated in the Best Electronic / Dance Song category. My song, "One Time Around," has been nominated in the Song of the Year category. My song, "Edge of Greatness," has been nominated in the Best Pop Song category, and my song, "The Moon Says Something," has been nominated in the Best Song So Far category. All of the judging is done by judges from the music industry. The winners will be announced by RightOutTV in their online awards show on November 10th. I was so happy and proud last year when my self shot video, "Make it in L.A.," won Best Video So Far in the 2013 Awards Show!

A very heartfelt thank you to all of my friends and fans who voted for me in the RightOutTV Fan Fave contest. The contest ran from Oct. 6th - Oct. 27th. The updates during the contest really kept me on my toes and wanting to rally for all the votes I could get. It was exciting! There was no mention of any artist names in any of RightOutTV's updates so I have no way of knowing where I stand at this point. The winner will be announced by RightOutTV in their online awards show on November 10th. Stay tuned!
 
 
***Please VOTE!***
 
I would love and appreciate your monthly vote for my new album, "Out Among The Wolves," as Best Album in the OutVoice Top 20 CD Chart and for my song, "Today," off of OATW, in the OutVoice Top 10 Song Chart. OutVoice is the oldest and only active GLBT Musicians CD ranking system and has been online since 1996. Thanks to all of you, Out Among The Wolves and "Today," have been rising steadily in the charts. In September, OATW rose 2 slots from #6 to #4 in the Top 20 CD Chart. "Today" has risen 2 slots each month since May in the Top 10 Song Chart and is currently sitting at #2! WOW! #1 is SO close! Please keep those votes coming in! Out Among The Wolves and "Today" are inching their way towards those #1 slots! Vote once a month and help me get to the top! I've been asked if it is OK to only vote for my album and a song of mine without voting for any other albums or songs. As far as I know, that is fine. To the best of my knowledge you are not required to fill in all of the blank voting spaces. ***A friendly reminder that you may only vote once per month.

Kevin Wood to Release 3rd Studio Album on Valentines Day

Long Beach Multi-Genre Music Artist and Former RENT National Tour Star Kevin Wood to Release Third Studio Album Out Among the Wolves

Long Beach, Calif. – Multi-genre music artist and former RENT national tour star Kevin Wood has announced the upcoming February 14 release of his third full-length studio album Out Among the Wolves. Alicia Champion of Durga Sound produced the album, which includes a duet with San Diego indie icon Danielle LoPresti

Kevin’s previous albums include Finding Me (2006) and Haven't Had Enough (2002). His music video “Make it in LA” won best video by RightOutTV, with his music nominated in five categories. 

The album’s tracks include the inspirational and empowering “Today;” the fun and open “Hopeless Romantic;” steamy club number “Garden of Eden;” LoPresti duet power ballad “I Wanna Know;” the flirtatious and driving up-tempo “Not a Song;” harmonious pop tune “Falling Away;” the melodic and uplifting “Edge of Greatness;” the mellow, melancholy “Fuzzy;” the Tori-esque riff-laden breakup song “House is Burning Down;” the soulful moving-on song “Too Many Questions;” the harmony-filled questions in “What are We Supposed to Expect;” and the upbeat, live-in-the-moment “One Time Around.” 

"My music spans many genres, but overall I try to be truthful to the moment when I'm writing," said Wood. "I'm not afraid to talk about the guy I have a crush on or use the ‘he’ pronoun in my songs. It's time the music industry opened their arms to more out musicians." 

Kevin’s provocative, cutting edge music video of Wolves song Garden of Eden was released on Thanksgiving Day, and numerous Long Beach clubs have aired the video. The CD release party is scheduled for February 1 at 7pm at Paradise Piano Bar located on Alamitos Beach’s Broadway strip. Kevin will be at the venue’s grand piano, playing and singing his original music for invited guests, local fans and the media. 

Originally from Cody, Wyoming, Kevin moved to Long Beach after traveling the US and Canada with the national tour of the Broadway hit RENT. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Kevin has performed on stage in Musical Theatre West’s Wedding Singer, Stages Theatre’s Bat Boy, as well as with The Orange County’s Gay Men’s Chorus MenAlive and at Downtown Disney with the a cappella group WestBeat. Kevin also traveled the open seas with Holland America’s ms Westerdam, where he worked as the ship’s lead male singer. 

Kevin performs throughout Long Beach and Southern California including locals’ night at Whole Foods Market, Paradise Piano Bar, Library Coffeehouse, Café Ambrosia, Velvet Lounge, Harbor Area Farmers Markets, Long Beach Pride Festival, and San Diego Pride Festival. In August 2013, Kevin performed with his band at the San Diego IndieFest, where also shared the stage with openly gay country star Steve Grand

Kevin plays at the Library Coffeehouse in Bluff Heights every third Friday of the month. The show is no charge and open to all ages. Kevin also performs at Velvet Lounge in Santa Ana on the second Saturday of every month.

Kickstarter Update #15 - Happy Halloween 2013!

I wanted to send you all a quick update on "Out Among The Wolves"...

The recording process is finished, and we are now in the final stages of mastering the songs so that they sound even better in every stereo around the world...and on every radio too!  The CD artwork is also in it's final editing stages and when these two very important stages are complete, we send them both off to be duplicated and printed so we can all have "Out Among the Wolves" in our hands!  Aren't you excited?  This has been a 2 1/2 year process for me, and you all joined me just over a year ago to help me finish it up!  A few bumps along the way made this process a bit slower than any of us expected, but patience is a virtue, and the best things come to those who wait!  I am incredibly proud of this project, and I'm so pumped to get to share it with all of you!  

Some important things to take note of:

I want to make sure that each and every one of you get the rewards that I promised through my Kickstarter Campaign.  

Please email me here on Kickstarter if any of the following apply:

  • Your physical address has changed
  • Your email address has changed
  • For those of you who get more than one CD, let me know if you'd like me to address CD's any differently than you had mentioned before
  • If you haven't yet, PLEASE fill out the survey sent to you through Kickstarter so that I can have all the information necessary to get these rewards to you!

Thanks again for all of you support!  Have an ghoulish and fun-filled Halloween!

Talk to you soon...

San Diego Indie Fest 8

San Diego IndieFest 8 proved to be one of the most wonderful performances yet!  It was a day packed with incredible talent and wonderful, independent artists.  The highlight of the day (other than performing my set and meeting amazing new supporters) was singing on-stage with the incredible Steve Grand!  His "All-American Boy" video was released around the 4th of July, and has reached over 2 million views since!  He's a down-to-Earth, genuine, talented guy that made an incredible video of a "country" song about a love story...between two guys!  If you haven't seen it yet, please do!  He deserves as much recognition as he is getting right now.  It was an honor to sing by his side, and I wish him all the luck in the world.

I was surrounded by incredible people all day long...my incredibly supportive "roadie," No. 1 Fan, and good friend, Laurie for starters!  The incomparable Francesca Valle was rockin' out too!  Alicia Champion  (the producer of Haven't Had Enough and Out Among The Wolves) and long time friend, and her partner (also singing with me in a duet on the upcoming album) Danielle Lo Presti and their beautiful son, Lucian were the stars of the event.

I'm proud to say I was part of such an incredible day of independent music.  To those who made it, THANKS a MILLION!

 

Enjoy some photos from this awesome day!

 

                                    

 


                                                

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Kickstarter Update #13

Project Update #13: Hopeless Romantics must wait a bit longer for CD #3
Posted by Kevin Wood


Dear loyal supporters here on Kickstarter,

More delays have come up in the completion of "Out Among The Wolves" that none of us could have expected.  In Update #11, Alicia, my engineer and producer, had sent us all a heart-wrenching letter about the challenging news of her loving partner, Danielle.  She had been diagnosed with Stage III Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer.  Many trips back and forth to Los Angeles from San Diego, differing hospitals and doctor visits later, Danielle seems to have kicked cancer's booty, and we were well on track to get back to recording and finishing up this album.  

With good news comes some more unfortunate news...

10 days ago, Alicia called me up and I could tell by the tone of her voice that she was devastated.  Her entire recording studio had been flooded by her careless neighbor. I asked Alicia to give me the details, and she wrote this letter to us all:

Letter from Alicia:

When tragedy seemed to be fading out of sight, it hit my home again, this time to my recording studio, Durga Sound, which had been flooded due to the negligence of our next door neighbor.

Last Thursday, June 20th, as Danielle and I were leaving our home to drive up to LA for her first post-treatment visit at City of Hope, we noticed our driveway was soaked. We traced the flow of the water to find that is was coming from inside our studio. When we opened the door, water came gushing forward, while a good inch & a half remained inside.

We immediately thought that the contractors working on the remodel at our neighbor's home, had hit a water main that flooded our building. When we went next door to speak to them, we discovered that they weren't working on any water lines, and that instead our neighbor left his hose running inside his koi pond.... and then left town.

Since our neighbor's lot is above ours, all the excess water had been filling up our soil, and eventually penetrated the structure for days now.

All hardwood flooring and dry wall had been ruined, requiring the entire structure be gutted and rebuilt. We are currently finishing up insurance inspections and should begin rebuilding early this week (Tuesday projected start date). The rebuild will take approximately two weeks. The very same weekend the building is finished, I'll be resuming work with Kevin, finishing up four more tracks for the album.

My sincerest apologies to all of you. We most certainly did not see this curve ball coming on top of everything else. I thank you for your loyal support and patience in this matter.

With infinite gratitude,
Alicia

With this unexpected event, we will all have to wait longer to have this album finished and to be able to have it in our hands.  

Never fear, though.  The work that has been done on this album is sounding fantastic.  I am so proud of "Out Among The Wolves," and I assure you that this CD will be well worth the wait.

In the meantime, please check out my new SoundCloud page, which has both my previous albums and some new original and cover tunes available to listen to.  And if you haven't yet, please check out my Facebook Artist page and "Like" it!  We're almost at 600 Likes!

Thanks again for your patience.  Your support means the world to me.  

Sincerely,

Kevin Wood

Kickstarter Update #12

Project Update #12: Hopeless Romantics! We're getting so close!
For backers only, Posted by Kevin Wood

Listen to a little sneak peak of Album #3 below!

Hey Everybody!  I'm excited to tell you that my producer and engineer, Alicia Champion has good news! In my last update she wrote you all a letter, letting us know that her partner, Danielle Lo Presti was diagnosed with Stage III Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in the last days of 2012.  Needless to say, this put a semi-halt in the process of "Out Among The Wolves."  BUT, after many hard and uncertain weeks including 4 cycles of chemotherapy, Alicia has some good news for all of us!

"Oh, happy day. This past Monday, Danielle had her first post-chemo PET Scan to assess the progress of her treatment. To our enormous relief and gratitude, the results showed ZERO cancer cells in our beloved Dani's body."

Although there is much more to come, including a few more cycles of chemo, all of our positive vibes, prayers and words of encouragement are creating that positivity that Danielle needs.  She's a warrior!  Keep the loving vibes coming.  And just WAIT till you hear her sing with me on the songs "I Wanna Know" and "House is Burning Down" on CD#3!

Again, if you'd like to send Alicia and Danielle more words of encouragement, please do!  You can reach Alicia and Danielle at Alicia@SayItRecords.com

Our Progress...

The album is coming along wonderfully, and I have another lead vocal and background vocal session coming in the next few weeks.  I've included a little sneak peek of the album below!  Listen and enjoy!

Also...my new website is going to be incredible!  Just wait till you see it.    

In the mean time, Check out my Facebook Music Page, and also the new songs that I uploaded on SoundCloud.com!  

Thank you all for your patience and understanding...This CD is sounding great, and I will keep you updated as our progress continues.  

I am so thankful for each one of you and your belief in me.  None of this would have been possible without you!  

Sincerely,

Kevin Wood

Listen to our progress!

Kickstarter Update #11

Project Update #11: "Out Among The Wolves" Updates! Photos!
For backers only, Posted by Kevin Wood


Hey Everybody!  I wanted to send you an update on how the progress is going for "Out Among The Wolves."

Please read...There's some important stuff here.

Alicia and I have been working really hard on finishing the songs.  We are about 8 songs in and working on the last 5 so we can get this to you soon!  Some unforeseen circumstances have made our progress become a bit slower than we expected, and I wanted Alicia to tell her in her own words what's happened...

A letter from my producer and friend, Alicia Champion:

"Dearest, most supportive contributors to "Out Among The Wolves,"

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous contributions to Kevin's new CD project. I have been nothing short of thrilled to be working once again in such extensive capacity with one of the greatest talents I have ever known, and to have been bestowed the honor and privilege to arrange and produce his third studio album.

Shortly following the closing of Kevin's Kickstarter campaign, we rolled into full speed and finished before Thanksgiving, the mixes for the first 4 songs of the CD - "Hopeless Romantic," "I Wanna Know," "Garden of Eden," and "Today." We began work on the next batch of songs and were steadily on track to meet our May deadline before taking recess for the December Holidays. Sadly over the Holidays, my fiancee, Danielle LoPresti, fell terribly ill with symptoms we discovered a month later were due to Stage III Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer. Needless to say, the following months left me distracted from work, and engulfed in care-taking for my beloved partner and our one year old son.

Understanding the importance of our promise to get this record to all of you by May of this year, I have been working as diligently as I can from that time until now, finishing productions on 3 more songs - "House Is Burning Down," "One Time Around," and "Fuzzy" - and starting work on 2 more. While I am still shooting to meet our May deadline, the challenges of my new reality have put a strain on what was once a very liberal work schedule, thus making it tougher to achieve than I had originally projected.

Please receive my heartfelt apologies, should this record be delivered later than May of this year. Should any delay occur, I endeavor to make it as small of one as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

All my gratitude and respect,

Alicia Champion
Producer, Kevin Wood / Out Among The Wolves"

If you'd like to send Alicia and Danielle a word of encouragement, please do!  You can reach Alicia and Danielle at Alicia@SayItRecords.com

Make sure to check out the beautiful photo of their amazing family.  I'm so honored to be a part of their lives.  

There's also a few awesome photos from my photo shoot for the album with the amazing and talented Isaac James.

In Conclusion...

Never fear!  We are trucking along as well as we can.  As my mom always said "Slowly but Surely."  This CD is going to be incredible and I can't wait to share it with all of you.

In the meantime, have an amazing Thanksgiving.  I'm thankful for each and every one of you!

Kickstarter Update #6

Project Update #6: 2 Weeks Remain - 7% get's us Album #3
Posted by Kevin Wood

105 of you have pledged your support to make "Out Among The Wolves" a reality.  I am truly grateful and I can't wait to get this album into all of our hands.  

So Close...

We are only $5 away from getting to 94% funded.  We have 2 weeks to close this gap.  We are getting so close and we have some time to spare!  But let's not get too confident that we have this in the bag!  

All or Nothing Funding...

The goal of $10,000 must be met by November 21st.  IF THE GOAL IS MET by November 21st, we will all get to enjoy Album #3 and feel the joy of successfully coming together to reach our goal.  IF THE GOAL IS NOT MET by November 21st, funding will not happen, and we'll have to start over again with a new plan of attack to finish Album #3.

One Last Push...

I urge each and everyone of you to do one last push of Spreading The Word!  Get all of those who may be thinking of pledging but haven't yet to jump on board with us.  Let them know they only have 2 weeks to get a pre-ordered signed copy of "Out Among The Wolves" and that 105 people have already done their part to support it.  Introduce them to my page and let them know they can listen to my songs and watch my videos for inspiration right here at Kickstarter.

Manage Your Pledge...

If you'd like to show your support even more, you do have the option to "Manage Your Pledge."  There you can change the amount of your pledge and choose the reward that coincides with your new pledge.

We are so close to this goal of $10,000.  I can't believe how far we've come.  We have 14 days remaining!  Let's get this CD in our hands!

Thank you so much for your continued support and for believing in my music.  Without you I wouldn't be albe to do what I do.   

Sincerely,

Kevin

Kickstarter Update #7

Project Update #7: Hopeless Romantics aren't so "Hopeless" are they? Woo Hoo!
Posted by Kevin Wood

Well here it is!  After 47 days and from the help of 111 people who have pledged their support, "Out Among The Wolves" has now reached it's goal of $10,000!

I am so proud to say that my Kickstarter Campaign has been successfully funded!

What to do now?

Like I said in my Kickstarter Video, every penny past the goal of $10,000 will go directly toward my 4th album, which will be just me and the piano, stripped down and intimate. Many of my listeners and supporters have asked for that and I have listened!

We have 13 days left to enjoy our success at an incredible coming together to support independent music. Let's get everyone else involved and give this upcoming 4th Album a running start! Let them know that they can pre-order a signed copy of "Out Among The Wolves" by pledging just $25 to my Kickstarter Campaign.

With 13 days left, why not up our goal? Why not shoot for the stars? I have confidence that we can keep this success going and rally together to not only have "Out Among The Wolves" in our hands, but a good portion of Album #4 already under our belts.

Thanks again for all of the love and support. I'm truly humbled by the outpouring of your generosity.  Hopeless Romantics really DO make the world go round!

Keep the dream alive and Spread The Word!

We have 13 days to soar to new heights!

Your support has truly astounded me.

Kickstarter Update #5

Project Update #5: 21% left to go and 20 days to do it...let's reach the stars!
Posted by Kevin Wood

"Out Among The Wolves" is 79% funded!  

I'm so proud of this project and so happy to see where we've come!  We have 20 more days to get to 100%, so we need to keep spreading the word and getting those involved who haven't yet pledged.

As you know by now it's all-or-nothing funding here at Kickstarter.  

We make our goal of $10,000 by November 21st, we all get an awesome CD in our hands and get to celebrate that we all worked hard together to make it come to fruition.  

If we don't make our goal, no funding happens for Album #3 and we start all over again with a new plan of attack.  

87 of you have pledged your support and helped this campaign get to $7,915 in 40 days!  That is incredible!  Look at how far we've come!  It'd be a shame to get this close and then have nothing to show for it.  So, let's keep the momentum going!  

Updates!

Videos and songs for inspiration!  I've added some songs and videos of my music to the Kickstarter page so those who haven't heard me can be inspired to pledge and close this gap.  So, there's no better time than now to get your friends and family members to check out the campaign!  They may just be inclined to join in on the fun!

New $350 reward!  Skype Date / Coffee Date!  

NEW!!! - SKYPE DATE or COFFEE DATE (for those in SoCal), where you can ask anything you'd like about Album #3 or whatever you've been dying to know - Digital downloads of 3 rare, never before released songs by Kevin sent to you by email 2 weeks before the release. - A special thank you in the liner notes of "Out Among The Wolves" for being a SeeKevSing BELIEVER - 2 signed posters addressed to you and a loved one, thanking you for your support - 3 signed copies of the new album sent to your door - A special thanks on the SeeKevSing.com website
Want to support Album #3 even more?  Manage your pledge amount.  Many of you have asked about pledging and if you're able to change your pledge.  Yes!  If you'd like to change your pledge and get an even better reward click the "Manage Your Pledge" button on the top right of my page. There you'll have your choices laid out in front of you for rewards, and you can make your updated pledge.  Thanks to those who already have shown increased support by changing your pledge amount!

Kickstarter Update #4

Project Update #4: 32% to go with 28 days left to do it!
Posted by Kevin Wood

70 of you have become my incredible supporters and have pledged to make Album #3 a reality!  

I am completely elated and so proud to have you all be a part of this process.  You have all invested in this project and I can't be more thankful!

We still have a ways to go to get to the top of this mountain so that "Out Among The Wolves" can be a success!

Here's a few things that can still help this project along...

1.  Feeling like you'd like to help even more?  YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR PLEDGE AMOUNT and CHANGE THE REWARD along with your new choice.  Just go to the right of the page where it says "Manage Your Pledge."  There you can change your pledge amount, and then also pick the corresponding reward with your new pledge.  Some of you have already done this, and I thank you so much for bringing even more love than I could have ever imagined!  If YOU would like to do so, here's your chance!

2. Get everyone you know involved. Email, Facebook and Twitter can go a long way! Many of my pledges have been from people I didn't know before this campaign, and that goes to show that our friends and family members may be willing to jump on board, and they may even want to spread the word to more people! The more people that know about a project like this will really help us get to that final goal of $10,000. We are so close. Let's get there so we can all get this CD in our hands!

Only 28 days left!

Holidays are coming up and soon enough we'll all be in the midst of the craziness that comes along with work, school, family and before we know it, it'll be 2013!  So, I urge each and every one of you to spread the word now!  The deadline for our goal is November 21st - The day before Turkey Day.  Let's get this goal met sooner than later, so that we can all rest assured come Thanksgiving that "Out Among The Wolves" will have it's fuel to be finished and in our hands come the Spring of 2013!  Remember that if the goal is not reached by the deadline, funding will not occur and we'll have to start all over at square one with a new plan of attack.

Thanks for all of your undying support.  I'm so proud of this CD, and I know you'll be proud of being a part of it!

Sincerely,

Kevin

Kickstarter Update #3

Project Update #3: Day #23 - "Out Among The Wolves" is 63% funded
Posted by Kevin Wood

63%!!!  Woo Hoo!  You Are All ROCK STARS!!!

Look how far we've come!  63% funded in only 22 days!  I am completely honored to have 61 amazing backers on board to make "Out Among The Wolves" a reality!

We still need to push on to make the uphill climb for this last 37%.  This is where I still need your help!  Please get the word out to everyone you know and share with them why you are involved.  Do what you can to get them personally interested in this campaign and enlist them to spread the word too!

The new song "Today" on Album #3...

My dad would wake me up every day before high school by turning my lights off and on really quick, saying "Up and at 'em," and then he'd always end by saying a line that has stuck with me.  "Today is the first day of the rest of your life!"  This line has ended up on my new album, in the song "Today," and I can't wait to share it with you!

Let's get the word out today!  Share my Kickstarter Page where you can!

Thank you so much for all of your support,

Kevin

Kickstarter Update #2

Project Update #2: Day #16 - 48 Hopeless Romantics fuel "Out Among The Wolves"
For backers only, Posted by Kevin Wood

48 of you have decided to jump on the "Out Among The Wolves" Kickstarter Train and join me in being a Hopeless Romantic!  Because of you we are 43% closer to having this CD in our hands. I am truly grateful for each and every one of you and your support!  

43% and counting...

Having that said, we've started to see a plateau this week, keeping steady at 43% for a few days.  This goal of $10,000 is a big one, and it is only possible if all of us keep spreading the word to everyone we know.  We've gotten this far in just 2 weeks, and that is absolutely incredible!  We can't let this middle part of the campaign slip by without a fight.  

I enlist all of you, my incredible supporters, to become advocates for this wonderful CD that I'm so excited to share with all of you.  Please do what you can to let your friends in on the news.  This goes beyond Facebook and Twitter.  Personal emails or personal phone calls can work wonders!  Believe me, I've been doing a lot of campaigning...Calling my friends, family, colleagues.  Sending personal emails; Tweeting like a little bird, and posting Facebook updates whenever something happens.

With your continued support, this CD will become a possibility.  We've got some time...6 weeks to get this done.  But let's get the momentum back again by spreading the word again this week in new ways.

"Out Among The Wolves" inspiration...

This album will be called "Out Among The Wolves," and it comes from a quote that was on a t-shirt my sister Pam gave me when I was young.  It was a picture of a blindfolded man, about to walk off the side of a cliff.  At the bottom of the cliff was a pack of wolves, and the quote said, "A hopeless romantic walks into the world."

This CD, as well as this campaign, brings all of us together.  We are all hopeless romantics, believing that we can make something good together and the more that we can involve, the more rewarding all of this will be.  Let's find other dreamers like us and get them on board!  

I can't wait to see what this next week brings!  If you have any questions please feel free to message me here at Kickstarter.  

Thanks again for your support!  

Kevin

Paula Cole is on Kickstarter!  She's almost to her goal!  Spread the word about her 6th studio album and Independent Release!

Kickstarter Update #1

Project Update #1: Day #10 - A Dreamer's Dream Comes True!
Posted by Kevin Wood

We're at Day 10, at 31% with 31 amazing backers supporting "Out Among The Wolves!"

One of my all-time, biggest inspirations, PAULA COLE, known best for winning a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1998 for her "This Fire" Album and her songs "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Want To Wait" has ALSO BECOME A BACKER for "Out Among The Wolves."

While I was starting to work on my campaign I was thumbing through other Kickstarter projects and came across Paula's Kickstarter Campaign for her sixth studio album and independent release "Raven."  I was so excited to be a part of the making of her newest album that I jumped right on it and became a backer instantly.  I also wrote her an email, letting her know what an inspiration she has been to my career, and I wanted to share it with you:

"Paula Cole, I just wanted to tell you that you are one of my biggest inspirations. When I first heard you (probably in 1998) I was going to school for musical theatre in Greeley, Colorado. I was just starting to really take my songwriting seriously, and when I saw you on TV in an intimate performance, it just fueled the fire within me to go for my dream of making original music.
I saw you perform that year in Denver after your "This Fire" release, and that was the moment I decided to apply to Berklee College of Music. When I got accepted I couldn't believe it, and walking those hallways, thinking of the fact that you had roamed there at one time not long before me just kept inspiring me.
2 albums under my belt now, I can say that I love what I do and I'm so happy I had that moment of inspiration years ago.
I'm so excited for "Raven" to come out...and it makes me honored to be a part of the making of it here on KickStarter."

Little did I know that she'd email me back and become a supporter of my project as well!  And none of this could have ever happened if I hadn't had put myself out there and started this KickStarter campaign.

Each and every one of you have helped "Out Among The Wolves" get to...oh wait, the total tally just changed to...33% as I've been writing this!

Keep sharing this project with everyone you know.  The power of community is unbelievable: From an artist working on his 3rd independent album like me to the making of the sixth studio album of a Grammy winning and inspiring artist such as Paula Cole.  We can all come together to make great independent music together!

Let's keep this momentum going!
