I'm ready to make my second album, but I need your up-front support to pull it off. Please pre-buy my album so I can get into the studio and record!
I've got the songs.
I've got the band.
I've got the studio.
I've got the talent and drive. Thanks Mom and Dad.
Now, I need the money to bring it all together and make it a reality: my sophomore effort. If you liked my debut album “Living Room,” please consider pledging to buy my next one, "Embers". My new album will feature 10 new orginal songs – simple, sweet, whimisical, creative and personal. Your small contribution will help bring these songs to life, and you'll get the new CD when it's finished! It's a win-win.
It'll also be my first live-studio attempt, which has a different feel than an album that's been polished track-to-track. We'll be ripping the songs over the course of a week, which means you'll hear and feel the excitement, fervor, and rawness of a live performance. I'll be working side-by-side with some fantastic local muscians – Anand Nayak, Sturgis Cunningham, and Paul Kochanski – so pre-buying this album means you'll be supporting 3 other local artists, as well as the local studio, Slaughterhouse in Westhampton, Mass.
If you're unfamiliar with my work, here's a link to my first album, and here's a couple of reviews that make me smile:
"Like the man himself, Alex's music draws you in - it's thoughtful and melodic and fun. He's a troubadour...a pied piper really, who has always had to ability to draw people to him, readily willing to do his bidding. Fortunately, he uses his power for good and not evil."
~Steffani Bennett, singer/songwriter
I'm so thrilled to be working on this new album and the prospects of sharing these new songs with you. I'm honored and humbled to have community support for my music, and local music. Please help me sing my heart out.
