Here's a random video I made for you all. I'll be getting into more of the logistics about "my plan" when I get home early next week. For now, I just wanted to say hi and give you a glimpse backstage at one of my shows. Sorry that I am so awkward on camera! Am I this awkward in person? :)
p.s 71%!!!!! We are sooooooo close.
p.p.s I am working on getting a link up to the new WSTM song "Love Me" for your downloading pleasure.
Welcome, friends to my kickstarter. Please take a moment and checkout what I am trying to do here. If I can get to 6,000.00 pledged by 8pm EST tomorrow. I will give this song and another new WSTM song "White Horse" away for free download. Ready, set, go! As usual thank you for being a part of my dream.
We Shot The Moon fans you can expect one last album and official tour sometime late 2011. We will still be playing a lot of colleges this year and in 2011. I hope to see some of your faces soon!
This is a song I was thinking of including on my next album. I would probably have the drums a bit different in the second verse along with the bass line(not sure exactly what direction). This song is just the beginning of the musical direction I want to take this next album. I programmed a string quartet, there's an oboe, and there's a harp. Thoughts on this song?
p.s We are doing so well. I am encouraged by the progress that has been made on my kickstarter in such a short time. We are almost halfway there!!!

The album is named after you? Let's talk. At that point you would be completely enabling my dreams. I have no idea what reward is worth 5000.00 but let's get creative.
