WAAILS / HEAL (2014)
- Check out three new songs in full from the new album
- Get a look at my brand new music video for “Heal”
- See the “Earthworks” Album Artwork
"Earthworks" was written, recorded, mixed, and produced by Waails in 2013. The album contains twelve new songs inspired by depression, body image, gender identity, greek mythology, environmentalism, and the idea that healing one’s self and knowing one’s history is an act of personal excavation: a movement of the flesh earth. Album recording took place in my apartment as well as the Upstate Chapel, a renovated church in Canajoharie, New York. I wanted to make an album that felt more organic than my previous efforts while still retaining a very electronic edge Numerous instruments were employed on this record including piano, harpsichord, omnichord, pipe organs, and reed organs nestled alongside synthesized strings and beats
The purpose of this kickstarter is to raise funds that will offset the cost of manufacturing physical copies of my new album “Earthworks”, which is prohibitively expensive for a person with a day job, and will be a first for me! I am also using the funds raised to pay for digital distribution in an effort to reach a larger market. The money I’m asking for will allow me to do exactly that. Anything raised beyond my goal will go towards paying for the mastering and artwork which were so generously donated by two gentlemen who believed in me and in this project enough to offer their services for free. Funds raised beyond that will go towards promotion, touring, and future recording.
Thank you all for your interest and support of my music over the past few years. If you can and are so inclined to see this become a reality please consider backing! If you can’t, please consider spreading the word. I’m extremely proud of this work and want to do my best to share it with the world.
Thank you thank you thank you.

Move more, be more active
Continue setting better boundaries
Take control of my finances
Have fun, intentionally, more often
And eat. Eat a lot. A lot of delicious things.
