I'd love for YOU to be a part of my brand new record and join in on the opportunity to bring these songs to life... the right way!
I've been writing songs since I was 16 years old... since that time I've been lucky enough to tour around the world with 4 of my best friends in a band called 'Every Avenue' non-stop for the past 5 years. I've recently relocated from MI to Nashville, TN where I finally have some time to sit down with my guitar and start compiling/writing all of these new ideas that I'd really love to take into a LEGIT studio where they can reach there absolute full potential.
In 2010 I recorded my very first EP titled 'Pretty Miserable' with my friend Chris Cron (Melee). Luckily I had some very talented and helpful friends that assisted me with 'Pretty Miserable' for nothing more than the experience and some quality late night hanging out. We basically did everything to the best of our abilities with gear set up everywhere inside of a house that nobody was living in out in California... here's a music video that came from that first EP directed by my buddy Dan Fusselman.
Writing songs has always been the cheapest form of therapy I've ever known... unfortunately it's the RECORDING and getting the songs to everybody else that is the part I'll need your help with... but this is a wild time we're living in where the fans can be such a huge part of the record and basically take over the job of what a record label would be WITHOUT putting the artist into debt and WITH keeping in touch with the artist and being closer than ever before during this whole process.
I CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU...
This sort of quality recording takes time and money and that's where this page comes in handy. With all of your help and donations you will get the chance to win a lot of really exclusive prizes that you won't get anywhere else.

THE FUN PART!! REWARDS!!!!!!
I've put most delivery dates for rewards as February 2013 making that my deadline to have this record completely finished... Although ... if you pledge for things that I can do before the record (signed vinyl of 'Pretty Miserable', postcards, polaroids, songwriting session etc).. I'd like to make it happen before then! Depending on what it is that you pledge for (for example: songwriting session) we can decide on a time that will work for both of us.
This is it boys and girls.. Make or Break.. let's bring these songs to life together!

ABOVE AND BEYOND! That means that every dollar we get past the goal can go back into things like promoting the album, shooting a music video/online content, hiring a possible publicist, or shoot maybe even getting this thing on the road! It all really depends on how much is pledged....each pledge is all going back into making this the best record we can ...together.
