The kickstarter is over but the work is just beginning!
I can not thank you all enough for contributing to the success of this fundraiser!!!
Thanks to kickstarter, all of my kickstarter backers and my friends and family, I've raised 4x's the amount I was originally asking for. Over $20,000!!!
I promise, from the bottom of my heart, that your contributions were not made in vain and I am excited for the time to come to deliver rewards. Some friends are already reaching out to organize sending off rewards parties! ....
I gotta record this album! This weekend, I'll be making my way from New Orleans to Joe Bass' Studio 808A in Floyd, VA. Next week I'll be laying down all the tracks for this record. My immune system is doing well and my voice is back! Whew! I've bought new strings for my cello, guitar and banjo. Travel has been booked for some of my musicians and it's all coming together! It's really happening!
As I'm getting ready to make these recordings, I'm wondering if you all have any suggestions for albums that you loved, that you'd think I'd love, and/or that I should listen to for some extra inspiration on the drive.....Any thoughts?! I'm super open to genre, just wanna open my ears and listen!!
Thank you thank you thank you, I'll keep you posted on how things are going in the studio!
