Be apart of my next album by taking some time to check out this KickStarter. Pledge and receive awesome, one of a kind incentives!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my KickStarter!
I am extremely excited for this album! I imagine it embodying all that I am; all that you believe me to be. I've been learning so much about myself and the ways of the world, that I would like to share it with you in the most proficient way possible. To create a professional LP album is my intention here. I have yet to get into the big $ studio and record something with radio quality. I'd love to see this album cast my full potential as an artist and most of all, give you all something new to listen to!
Why a KickStarter?
I've decided to be true to myself and not go on TV shows to get my name known. I realize that this means I will have to work hard and it may take some time. But I believe in the values of the tortuous rather than the hare. In turn, with this carefully thought out plan, there is much support to be gained, pleasure in the journey, and better music to be made. Since I began street performing down in the Pike's Place Market, I have learned to value the support from friends, family, fans, and the general public. With every tip, CD sale, or kind gesture, I have been able to survive and continue to invest in my music. A KickStarter is just another extension for me to get where I've got to go instead of selling my soul to the corporate schemes in the music business.
How is this KickStarter going to be utilized?
The game plan for this project is to get into Orbit Studio this summer and record a 4-5 song EP with Grammy Award Winning Producer, Pete Stewart. With the EP, I plan on independently releasing it in order to raise money for the next 4-5 songs which is scheduled to be recorded by Fall 2011. The completion of these last 4-5 songs will make up a 9-10 song LP to be released in Spring/Summer 2012. The reason why I am splitting up the album in 2 recording sessions is because, although, I hope to have many backers for this KickStarter, this project is going to be VERY expensive and I will need to match the money pledged. Hints why I need your help!
This KickStarter will help fund:
- Professional Studio Time at Orbit Audio
- Grammy Award Winning Producer - Pete Stewart
- Experienced Paid Musicians
- Mastering Through RFI

I am going Pro because I believe this is the next step in my career as a musician. If I want to make an impression on the music business, I have to have something that makes me stand out. I am hoping that this EP will help make that happen!

I will then contact you and let you know that I have achieved or not achieved my goal, verify addresses and incentives, and send you most item as soon as possible. The only thing that won't be granted right away is the new EP and the final LP and Release Party tickets. I will be keeping everyone updated!
