Hello friends! How are things? All good I hope. Congratulations on your exciting news and/ or I am sorry to hear about that unfortunate event that occurred recently.
It is time for me to go back into the studio and record another full length album. I have no doubt that the songs that I have for this album are the best I have written. Songs about all kinds of things like: love and loss and heartache and death and not dying and more!
My friend Jeff Plankenhorn, an uber talented singer/songwriter/ and multi-instrumentalist who has played with everyone from Slaid Cleaves and Ray Wylie Hubbard to Willis Alan Ramsey, Gavin Degraw, and the Courtyard Hounds, has agreed to come in and produce and play on this album. Rick Richards (Ray Wylie Hubbard, Gurf Morlix, Susan Gibson, Owen Temple, Mary Gauthier and MANY more) and Jack Saunders (Shake Russell, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Greg Trooper, Hayes Carll,Randy Weeks and MANY more) have agreed to be the rhythm section. THAT'S INCREDIBLE, FOLKS! I'm SO excited about making this album, but I can not do it with out a little help from my friends and my friends friends and so on, and so on...
$18,000.00 is my absolute minimum, and because of the way Kickstarter works, thats what I made my goal. However, thats not my REAL goal. That's just the lowest amount I can raise to make this album and feel like I'm doing it right.
If I can raise $20,000.00 then more time can be spent in the studio. More musicians can be brought in. We can fine tune the record and really take it above and beyond and to an even higher level of quality that the songs deserve.
BUT $20,000.00 isnt my goal either. My goal is $23,000.00. I am fully aware that that is a gigantic amount of money, but if we can work together and achieve that amount, then we can spend the extra time in the studio AND pay a record promoter to take the album and put it in the hands of a wider audience that I couldn't do otherwise. I want to bring my music to as many people as possible, and that takes money to put it in the right hands. That is why my ultimate goal is $23,000.00.

Risks and challenges
I know that launching this kickstarter involves some risk. The biggest being, this is a large amount of money i am asking for, and if I don't raise that money, I can't make the record. That would be disappointing and embarrassing and make me very sad. BUT I have faith in you fine folks that we will go above and beyond this goal and we WILL get to make this record.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
