Wil Whalen

Years ago I got whitelisted on Zack Scott's private Minecraft server & ended up making a lot of new gaming friends because of it.  One of the first people to get whitelisted on that server was Wil.  He was never all that active on the server, so we never got to know each other much.  Years after joining the server Wil got involved with a project trying to get Kickstarted.  It looked like a cool project, and even though the project wasn't music related, I knew Wil was a musician.  There was no cover reward mentioned on Kickstarter, so I contacted him through Zack, and we created our own Kickstarter reward via e-mails.  I donated to the project & we got a cool new "Today's The Day" cover.

Lords Of The Trident

When I stumbled onto the Lords Of The Trident's Kickstarter I was blown away by their pitch, and then their music.  It didn't take long for me to decide to back their project at the cover song level.  After their project was funded they did an amazing job of keeping their backers updated throughout the process of recording the album & fulfilling all the rewards.  It's a shame that everyone on Kickstarter doesn't show the same level of appreciation & respect to their fans that this group does.  Mad props to them for that, and for the amazing music they make.

PS:  Bill House did an amazing job with his contribution to the cover as well.
