I don't usually pimp things like Kickstarter projects, mostly because I never find out about them in time, or it's for something that EVERYONE else has already heard about. Well, let me tell you, you haven't heard about this one yet.
This kickstarter campaign is for an album combined with a graphic novel called Mind of Mirrors. I'm a big fan of Dan and Leland, and I don't go off the crazy-fan-girl-deep-end very often. Dan and Leland's music was the reason I finished one of my novels. Hell, it's the reason I started the novel. I thought I'd run dry. I thought I'd run out. But the song picked me up and pulled me through. Music is powerful like that. But I never would have heard of Dan and Leland if it weren't for the fact that I met them a long time ago.
I went to high school with these amazing musicians. So I knew to go looking for their incredible music. You probably didn't go to the same high school (and seriously, if you did, say Hi! it's been ages!), so I thought I'd let you all know about these awesome musicians I met through accidents of fate and biology.
As writers, we are often looking for just that perfect song to encapsulate a character or a scene, and let me tell you these guys do that. Sample some of their music here. And seriously guys, go back their campaign here. It's going to be awesome; you want to be part of this.
