Help me get this glorious music out of my brain-hole and into the hands of more beautiful people such as yourself!
Here is a rough cut one of the songs on LEAP YEAR.
Ya can't stay in one place or you'll die - especially as a musician - so it's time to for me take a leap of faith and make this year my LEAP YEAR !!!
It's time to finish this (my first fully-produced) album, get my songs reviewed my music bloggers in different countries, and keep building my fan-base world-wide.

TOP 3 TRANSFORMING MOMENTS in my MUSIC CAREER:
1. Seeing my name in lights.
2. A student WHO NEVER TALKED started singing along to one of my songs.
3. A long-time friend and lead guitarist for RIHANNA said "Uh, you got it, man!" on hearing a couple original songs.
Although I was offered a record deal in Atlanta, I was ADVISED TO STAY INDEPENDENT as long as possible. I've been working with a great producer, Robert Dyson, in Atlanta and am feeling great about what we've done so far. But I need help finishing the project and getting it to you!!
Your support is going to make a significant difference to my musical career and life.
This $4,900 will go to creating my first ever, fully produced album:
1. Production, Mixing, and Mastering.
2. Duplication of CD's and Printing
3. Primary Marketing Budget - Flyers, Business Cards, Vinyl Banner for Live shows, Professional Videography for my Electronic Press Kit.
Thank you for being a part of my success!!!

I've laid all the groundwork for this album to come to fruition. It took me years to write this batch of songs as well as to find a producer I can trust to deliver excellent work at a great price. The musicians are all pros and will be able to make these songs shine.
I've selected a nationally known CD duplication company and I'm so excited that this is all going to happen!
Thanks to you!
