The Dear Hunter: The Symphony


yeah no embed code from what I can tell, not surprised though.

I'm a bit preoccupied with more significant issues right now (my gf's mom being in the Hospital mainly) to even go in-depth about any extra (speculative) thoughts about this; and everything that somehow happened the last time I talked about TDH in here (for better or for worse). But I'll at least say, this sounds cool, although I'm not totally surprised given how a lot of TDH's music has the symphonic/chamber/baroque element to it anyway.

Do I worry the goal won't be met? I guess we'll see, but TDH have enough of a worldwide fanbase, rabid enough, to want to support this thing. And Casey does do well using social media anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if the Goal was met, somewhat early. It's already over 20% and this thing launched just a couple of hours ago.

The Symphony

Join me as I travel to the Czech Republic and Commission an Orchestra for the recording of my first Symphony.

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for visiting me here. With 5 full length records, including 36-song rock opera “The Color Spectrum” and most recently “Migrant” under my belt as The Dear Hunter, I am setting out on my next endeavor.
To write and record a Symphony with a full orchestra is a MAJOR undertaking, and comes with a tremendous financial commitment. The Symphony will consist of 4 movements and will be recorded by the BRNO Orchestra in the Czech Republic this November.
I am calling for your help, the fans, to support me in this venture, and make a truly memorably piece of music, and make a statement in the music community.
Most importantly, I’d like you to be a part of this journey……

Pledging not only ensures the release of this project, but also opens the door to a world of exclusive content….

By joining me here on PledgeMusic, you’ll be getting an inside look at the making of this new recording. I’ll be sharing blogs, pictures, videos, rough tracks and more with you throughout this whole process. You’ll also have the chance to get involved in some very exclusive merchandise and interactive experiences.
I’m really looking forward to my first ever Symphony and for you to be right there with me the entire time.
