Hey GK Family-
We are currently just 4 days aways from the end of the Kickstarter campaign to fund the making of Lighter Shades of Blue. We have raised over 28k, and that is amazing. We still have about 7K to raise by Sept 17th at 9 a.m. central time. We Can Do This!!
I need your help in sharing this project with as many people as you can. If you have a social network, let people know: Email, Text, Phone Calls, Facebook, Twitter, anything and everything you can do to let people who may want to be a part of this journey know. Strength in numbers can get us there. I believe in US!
Thanks so so much for believing in me and for all of your help!!
Below are a list of links to the project you can use to share with others.

Hey Folks -
Things are moving along in the studio! We’ve been working hard on recording, editing, overdubbing, splicing… all to bring this new album to you, the fans, who are making it possible.
Check out this video of producer Neal Cappellino editing the REAL way. We’re lucky to have such a talented guy in the GK family.
More updates coming soon. Thanks so much for your continued support!

Hey folks -
Check out this video from this past year’s Simple Truth Tour. We had an absolute blast on the road, meeting new friends and building community around music. If you’d like to host a show for Part 2 of the Simple Truth Tour, please consider donating to the creation of my new album, Lighter Shades of Blue, through the Kickstarter campaign.
Enjoy, and as always…

I’m really excited to announce that as of yesterday, recording of Lighter Shades of Blue has officially begun! Thanks to those of you who have already contributed to this project. It honestly means the world to me to be able to enter the studio knowing I have the support of fans like you, who I truly consider to be part of the GK family.
Yesterday, we also launched a little giveaway for fans who help to spread the word about the new album and the Kickstarter campaign. Everyone who shares the link to the Kickstarter campaign (here’s a shortened version: http://kck.st/12Sl1KZ) on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tags it with #LighterShadesOfBlue will be eligible to win a FREE copy of the album on VINYL when we complete the project. I’d be really honored if you’d share this project with your friends and family.
I’ve attached a little photo collage from the first day in the studio. Things are off to a great start. Keep checking in on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay up-to-date on our progress.
I appreciate you guys!
As always, much love…

Today marks the start of my new Kickstarter campaign for my second studio album, “Lighter Shades of Blue.” I couldn’t be more excited to make my second record, and I hope that you want to join me on this beautiful process. Kickstarter is such a great platform for artists like myself who want to write and create honest art without sacrificing integrity because of the pressures and demands of the mainstream music industry. I am so excited about this second album and am so grateful to have the GK family behind me on this endeavor.
Please take time to look at the Kickstarter page and watch the video, and if you feel led to give, your contribution will be greatly appreciated. My goal is to raise $35,000 by September 17th in order to cover the expenses of making the new album. I’ve worked really hard to come up with some great rewards for those of you who choose to donate to the making of this record. I hope they’ll show you just how much I really do appreciate your contributions.
I would also appreciate your help spreading the love and telling anyone and everyone about joining the independent music movement! I hope everyone is as excited as I am and hopefully we can reach our goal for this campaign.
Again, HERE is the link the Kickstarter Campaign.
Thanks so much, and as always…

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being a part of the Gabriel Kelley family! I am eternally grateful for your support. I truly could not do this without help from YOU. Thank you for enabling me to do what I love: bringing real, honest music to the world.
For the past few months I’ve been touring all over the US and even made my way over to the UK a few weeks. The Simple Truth Tour was an incredible experience…a big thank you goes out to all of you who participated in that. I played over 40 intimate house shows across the US & UK. I can’t wait to get back on the road to do it again & bring you more new songs.
There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon this year. First things first, I have re-launched the Gabriel Kelley email newsletter so that I can stay connected to all of you. It truly means the world to me to be able to stay in touch with you all, so I encourage you to sign up for the mailing list. I’ve included a link below.
Also, stay tuned for a very exciting announcement that I’ll be making next week. I can’t wait to fill you all in on my next big adventure.
Thanks again for all the support.
As always, with much love…
