Derek Webb celebrates 10 years of Mockingbird

Derek Webb is planning to commemorate the 10th birthday of Mockingbird with a special edition vinyl release, remixes, and a live album.

He's using kickstarter to fund the whole thing, and after only a couple of days, he's a quarter of the way to his $17,500 goal. 30NZD (20 bucks US) gets you the digital download of the video & audio from the Nashville full-band concert as well as a digital download of the Mockingbird remix album, re:mockingbird. Add $10 and you get one of vinyl presses.

As an artist, I'm always so grateful when an album seems to really connect. And most of the time, I'm just as surprised as anyone at what comes out in these records and songs, when and why those moments of resonance happen. If Mockingbird was one of those moments for you, or maybe you're just discovering it now, I hope you'll support this campaign. This is something I would love to do along with you, and I cannot do without you.

Check out Mockingbird on Spotify:
