I'm recording a new solo album. With your help it'll soon be ready for release!
I’ve spent the last year writing a TON of new songs. All kinds of songs - rock ‘n’ roll songs, acoustic songs, songs that I hesitate to characterize. I’ve been playing some of them at my shows, but there are many I have yet to share with the world. I recently began recording this stuff - but there’s still much to be done! I need your support to get it out there.
Is to share this new music with you. I’m excited about it, and I want you to hear what I’ve got. With your help, this Kickstarter campaign will raise the money I need to finish recording, pay musicians, mix, master and package my album.
Time in the studio is a HUGE opportunity, and I appreciate every moment I have to make new music. Anything I make beyond my $8,000 goal will go to additional recording. The more you give, the more I can do. Let’s make it happen!
WHAT YOU GET
I'll repay your support any way I can think of to thank you. The list includes CDs, guitar lessons for you or a friend, tickets and house concerts.
If you want to create a tailor-made package for your contribution, e-mail me and I’ll work with you to come up with something good. E-mail links are at top and bottom of this page.
Please tell your friends about this project. Every contribution counts, so a Facebook or twitter link, or an e-mail to friends and family, can make a huge difference.
Thanks for checking this stuff out. I’m excited about my new songs and can’t wait to share them with you.
And THANK YOU for your help. I’m humbled and honored to have your support, and I appreciate it more than I can say.
In an age where record labels are struggling, it's harder for musicians like myself to find label support for my music. As a result, I must find other ways to fund recordings, which help sustain my career. I can't do it myself, so I'm turning to you, my friends and fans, to help get this music out. It's really not an exaggeration to say that you are my label!
Kickstarter creates direct links between musicians and fans, and getting funding up front helps me avoid the burnout that's often the result of money-related frustrations for musicians. Your contribution helps me sustain a career over the long term, and I'm grateful for your support.
My pal Todd Goodman shot the video. I can't thank him enough for his help. I can't recommend him enough either - he's a great guy who does fantastic work. You can reach him at www.bigarmdigital.com
