Second Life’s Rocker Campaigning For New Original Album
Jan 15, 2013
Real Life independent musician Seth Regan, known in Second Life as Mankind Tracer since 2006, has started an Indiegogo campaign to complete his next album, “Left of Center”.
Seth has been performing his live music concerts in Second Life for over 6 years. Quickly becoming a fan favorite, Seth rose to being the top live rock artist and maintains that status today, among the now hundreds of performers in SL. He is Second Life's most widely recognized live performer. During his time performing in Second Life, Seth has been the recipient of the most prestigious awards including “Best Live Performer”, “Listener’s Choice Award” and, most recently, "2011 Best of SL Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Contributions to Second Life". Seth has donated many hours of his time and performances to various charity events. These include helping to promote awareness and raise money for Relay For Life, Buddy Walk, ALS, Wounded Warriors and others, even helping friends and fans raise money for their more personal needs.
Seth has self already self released three original albums and is hoping to complete his fourth, “Left of Center”. This new album represents a shift for Seth from more harder edged, guitar driven rock, to where he started more acoustically, mixing rock and pop with sometimes classical undertones.
Seth believes some of the new songs to be among the best he’s written in his entire life. As Seth has said, "Only for You" and "Yesterday's Over" (for his Mom), are incredibly personal.
He is hoping to have the album completed by May 2013 with help from people contributing to and sharing his Indiegogo campaign. This will help fund roughly 75% of what is needed to complete the new album. The funds raised will be used for equipment, recording studio time, production and engineering, mastering, CD duplication and printing, T-shirts and other promotional media, marketing and advertising and other miscellaneous expenses.
Contributors will receive some cool and unique "Perks" which include pre-release music, Limited Edition T-shirts and even personal Real Life and Second Life concerts.
