Longtime solo artist (and former member of The Normals and Caedmon’s Call) Andrew Osenga has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund his newest project, The Painted Desert.
“I thought I was done making records,” writes Osenga on his Kickstarter pitch page. “I felt I had said all I’d ever have to say. Then life happened. The past few years have felt like wandering in the desert, in a myriad of ways. I had to face some hard truths about myself and ask some hard questions, about who I am, what I believe, and what I’m called to do.”
Osenga continues, “The Painted Desert is, I pray, the album version of conversation with a friend where you have the freedom to be real with doubt, fear AND hope. This is absolutely my favorite thing I’ve ever done and I’m so very excited for you to hear it.”
The album isn’t slated to release until the Fall, but you can get a download of the album immediately, today, upon giving to his Kickstarter campaign. Presently, the campaign is already roughly halfway funded.
