Blind Willie's Lighthouse Update! Drums, Drums, and Drums.
Hello friends and fellow hooligans,
I am thrilled so many of you have taken part in my Kickstarter campaign. We are already over 50% of the way there, and only have $1300 to go. This is beyond where I thought we would be to this point, and I am so very greatful, but I also realize the next 50% is going to be the hardest part to raise. I could use any help I can posting about it on facebook, sending out emails, and letting friends know by word of mouth. Remember, "Blind Willie's Lighthouse" gets nothing if we fail to reach $3000.
I'm also excited to tell everybody that the drums have been all recorded during a brilliant two all out days sessions in Gloucester. Yes, I agree that Gloucester is the perfect town to record an album about the sea and lighthouses. We finished off 8 songs, and I could not be happier with their sound. I can honestly say that this will be the best work I have ever done. I will start posting demos from the CD soon to show the progress. Watch out for some electric guitar too.
Thanks again for your support. I can not make this CD with out you.
