It’s already been a couple years since Jesse Barrera‘s Love in Technicolor, and the artist is gearing up to finally release it’s follow-up, the sophomore album called From the Ground Up. He’s proclaimed this to be a personal reflection of his past few years and is hoping you’ll partner with him in bringing it to fruition (via crowd-sourcing). Check out all the details after the break and over at his Kickstarter page.
I’m EXTREMELY excited and proud to announce I’ll be putting out my sophomore record titled “From The Ground Up” in March 2013!!! Help me make this record a reality by donating to my KickStarter and / or pre-ordering the album!!! There are tons of fun and great rewards such as a signed physical record, pre-release downloads, signed posters, framed hand written lyrics, house concerts, signed guitars / drum heads and much much more! I’ve put so much into this and want it to be TOP NOTCH for your listening pleasure!
This record is a collection of songs that I truly believe are the best I have ever written in my life and can’t wait to share it with you all. The album features a HANDFUL of some of my favorite artists that I got lucky enough to have sing on my record including: AJ Rafael, Tori Kelly, Melissa Polinar, Daniela Andrade, US (Michael Alvarado and Carissa Rae), and Tim Ferguson from April Chase. It’s an album worth waiting for and cannot wait to get it to your stereos!!!!!!
“It’s been two years since I’ve put out my first record Love In Technicolor. That record I wrote changed my life in so many ways. And can’t believe where it took me. I remember putting a solo record out because I felt the urge to show everyone what I could do as a writer, producer and singer. It’s crazy because that entire record was recorded on an mbox and one microphone in my mom’s house. Fast forward two years and so much has changed.
I couldn’t write songs for months. I was going through the roughest time of my life. Relationship problems, family problems as well as internal. One day I told myself it was time to turn it all around. I told myself to write a record and be 100 percent true to what I am. And the record just just came. 11 songs that explain the last 5 years of my life. The darkest of times and the happiest. This is as honest as I could ever be. This record is truly about finding the light in the darkest point of your life. It’s about knowing that we will all fall to the floor at some point, but knowing there’s no where else to go but up. This is why I called it From The Ground Up.”
Please be a part of making this record a reality by donating whatever you can to make it happen. The funds I make from KickStarter will go towards musicians, post production, mastering, merchandising and promotional materials. I’m offering preorders as well as some great rewards. But any little bit will help. Thank you all for sticking with me through all these years. It’s really all of you that keep me going on this crazy musical journey. I love you all.
