For this week's Utah Crowd-Funding project, we venture down south to Provo — and hear the music of singer-songwriter John Allred.
The folk-rock guitarist/singer has been working on his full-length album "Forest Eyes" for nearly a year, collaborating with producer Joshua James. "It was an experiment," Allred writes on his Kickstarter page, "but it completely changed the way I approach recording, and it created a whole new world of possibilities."
Four songs over one weekend, he writes, "transformed into something that is still hard to describe, and for the first time, l am letting the music speak for itself." What was initially meant to be an EP expanded, with more songs developed in the studio to make an album.
