Katy Perry guitarist Patrick Matera is raising $$$ for his new album.

I've been playing guitar with Katy Perry since the 2008 Warped Tour. When we had a little time off last summer, I began working on this solo record, writing songs and recording demos. It's pop music, I'd say...  electronic/guitar/vibey singer/songwriter stuff. I'll be singing, playing guitar & keyboards on it and just need a little help from my friends to finish it and get it out there to you. I'm raising funds so I can pay all the musicians, studio owners, engineers, mixers, etc. that I need to help complete the project.

More rewards will be added soon. Have any requests for incentives that aren't listed? Let me know!

UPDATE: Pictures of some of the Rewards available
