Some words from Jason about the project:
"I've been dreaming about an opportunity like this for a very long time, all the while working hard to write songs that have a sense of place and relevance to my up-bringing in rural MT. The chance to work with someone who's produced some of my favorite albums is a best case scenario to say the least. Wes was nominated for a Grammy with John Fullbright's 'From The Ground Up' and also produced the wildly successful Turnpike Troubadours release 'Goodbye Normal Street.'
Something I've been telling songwriters for years that are considering a producer is to make a list of their top 10 favorites and just start calling. About two years ago I took my own advice and Wes was #1 on the list. I called the number at 115 Recording, his studio in Norman, OK and to my horror and surprise he answered the phone. I stuttered and stammered around desperately trying not to sound like a fan boy. Luckily for me, Wes patiently heard me out and so the relationship began. I've been writing and sending iPhone recordings of my songs to him ever since." (Jason via Kickstarter)
Help out if you can! Jason is a great talent, and he's offered up some great rewards. Good Luck, Jason!
