Matt Zarley Launches Kickstarter Campaign For New Album & Music Videos
Broadway headliner and popular recording artist Matt Zarley has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to help fund his latest album project and accompanying music videos.
Zarley's HOPEFUL ROMANTIC is set to be produced by Andy Zulla, with a pronounced emphasis on a romantic theme and featuring predominantly live instrumentation, according to the performer's description of the project.
Of note, the first single, "SOMEBODY 4 EVERYBODY", has been recorded, as has a music video to go along with it, which is scheduled to be released on February 4.
Zarley describes HOPEFUL ROMANTIC in detail on the page, summarizing his intentions as follows: "This is by far the most ambitious project I've conceived. With ambition, comes alot of costs. 100% of the proceeds from your pledges will go to the costs of producers, directors, editors, musicians, cinematographers, editors, publicity, and marketing. No amount is too small. If we're fortunate enough to surpass the goal amount, the remainder of the proceeds will still go to the funding of this project. The more raised, the better the videos look...and maybe I'll be able to do an additional song or two."
Additionally, Zarley describes the project as such, "I have always wanted to do an album that was purely romantic. The original concept of this album was inspired by a true love that I had experienced. I now believe in "love at first sight", cuz I lived it. When I first started to work on this, my relationship unexpectedly ended...leaving me heartbroken and confused. Since then, I've uncovered truths about myself and lessons were learned. What started as a sweet valentine to the one I loved, was now becoming alot more dimensional. Though this is inspired though my own personal experience, it's a universal story...told through an optimistic lens."
