When inspiration flows, the artist is just along for the ride. With windmills and tulip fields as my landscape, it's time to produce an album, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I've been here before, yet in a new country, the process is fresh and exciting! The Dutch Sessions will be my first release in over seven years and the songs will continue to be heartfelt and pure. I invite you to join me on this journey. The album will feature all of the music genres that have shaped me as a singer: rock, classical, folk and alternative. The album investment will total at least $6000, and all funds received will go towards the production of this album and accompanying videos: recording, mastering, manufacturing, artwork, and session musicians. While my experience in the Netherlands will only last two years, this album will allow the songs written here to endure. I humbly thank you. This album will belong to us all...

 One of my favorite covers... Watch for the moonwalk...

And an original song:

 Thank you for your love and support!

Risks and challenges

As with any project, there may be delays, yet I have set the album release date for June of 2016 to make sure I give this project enough time to be its very best. Of course, the project could take longer (or likely, less time). Sometimes, one has to re-record parts, re-master mixes, replace instrumentalists or save additional funds to complete things the right way. I have managed the production of two albums in the past, and have no doubt I can accomplish it again. I have already written material, lined up a studio, chosen a producer, and booked talent. Now all we have to do is start the recording process and watch a vision come to life!
