14 days left...
I want to thank all of you who have already supported me! It's a blessing to know that friends and family want to see me succeed. There are 14 days left and I'm just under half way of meeting my goal of $3,500. Kate and I have jokingly pitted Canada vs USA in a rematch of all the hockey games we've watched together... and I'm excited to see support coming from both countries.
I've had some great success with songwriting in the last little while. I wrote a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song called "Dream" and posted it to facebook and youtube. If you head to youtube.com/canadary you'll be able to view it. I woke up having remembered almost everything from my dream (hint: it was about flying... Willie Nelson was there). I've done some simple demos of new songs that I've written and they are being reviewed by the Nashville Songwriters Association. One I get a temperature gauge from them, I'll do some rewriting and reworking of those tunes.
It's already looking like I'll have more than 5 songs to record, so any money that I receive over my goal will go towards additional tunes. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING! My goal is to generate a lot of interest in me as a songwriter, and the hope is not only to get a song cut by a big country artist, but to receive a writers deal with a major publishing company. That way, I'll be paid to show up and write/co-write with some of Nashville's best songwriters and artists.
Your generous support is giving me the chance to make my dreams a reality. If you know people who want to jump on board (and haven't done so yet) or think they'd enjoy this project... please send them this link and invite them to do so.
I look forward to updating you on our project ASAP!
