We’re so unbearably grateful for your support as Josh headed into the studio.
Your enthusiasm allowed us to purchase much-needed marketing and branding materials and head in for three days of intense musical work as Josh recorded eight songs for his debut album October 18, 2014. He was sweaty, exhausted, and a little delirious, but I’ve never seen him more in the moment or more fulfilled than the 30 hours he spent working on this album.
You helped us set our sights on an incredible goal… thank you!
We’re not actively raising funds for a second album, but if you’re looking for an alternative birthday or holiday gift, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re moved to contribute and don’t see anything you like, just email us at joshua wake music at gmail dot com and tell us what would make your day. I bet we’ll be up for it!
