Hello all you lovely people!

Thank you so much for stopping by my Kickstarter page! I am really excited to announce that I am going to be recording my very first album! I will be recording, mixing and producing the album myself and with the help of some of my friends. I have been working on writing a lot of new music over the last year and I am excited to get them recorded to share with you all. However, recording is both a tedious process and an expensive one. By helping back this project, you would be helping me tremendously with the expenses needed in order to deliver a quality album. Here is a list of what your money would go towards:

- Microphones
- Recording Software (Protools) 
- A Studio Keyboard (A studios best friend!)
- A Quality Guitar
- Audio Interface
- Studio Headphones
- Pop Filters
- Miscellaneous Cables
- CD Production

Please know that any little amount helps, and that ALL contributions are GREATLY appreciated! Even just sharing the page is a big help! And also remember that Kickstarter works on an all or nothing basis, so either I raise all of the money for the project, or I get none of it. (Backers won't be charged if the funding goal is not met.)

Thank you all so much for your support!!

*Also a big thank you to Stephanie Reiman for putting the video together!

Risks and challenges

As with all art, there is always a big risk when you decide to share your work with others. The biggest risk is having people dislike my music or even disliking it myself if the ideas that I have don't end up the way that I envision them to be. Also with music, time is a huge factor, and although I hope to have the album recorded and ready to release by next January, it will be dependent on how smoothly the recording process goes. The biggest challenge of all will be the learning curve. Being that I am producing and mixing the album myself, there will be many things I will need to learn along the way, but I have many wonderful talented friends that will be there to help me every step of the way. I will push myself to record and produce the best quality album that I can for you all to enjoy as close to the estimated date as possible!

    You are SO cool. Everything above plus I'll do a cover of your favorite song, put it on YouTube, and give you a shout out! Or I'll sing your least favorite song so you can laugh at me for your enjoyment. Whichever works for you. You tell me the song and I'll sing it. (I will not however sing anything vulgar so please keep it clean! I can change some lyrics though, so just run it by me. Also filming this many videos could take a good deal of time, so please just be patient. But I will get it done!)

    You are my hero. Everything above with the exception of the YouTube cover. Instead of just a regular cover, I'll go the extra mile and make the cover into a music video you can watch! It might be cheesy..It might just be weird and artsy..But it will be high definition and I'll try my best to make sure you enjoy it!

    Are you kidding me?!?! Along with your copy of the CD, I will also give a personal concert for you and your family in your backyard, living room, garage, or just about anywhere assuming it isn't too far to travel from Missoula, MT! (If you do live far away and really want me to do a show, just pay for travel and lodging expenses and I'm there!)
