Hi everyone!  I just got back from meeting so many of you in Paris & Milan and the one question I was asked consistently was "when are you releasing more music!!?"

Well... let's make that happen together!

I've decided to create a KICKSTARTER to give you all a sneak peek of what I'm working on.  As you know, my style is consistently evolving, but I thought you'd enjoy being a part of the beginning stages of the new record.  The idea here is to invite you all to participate, help the project get off the ground, and walk you through the process with me!

The plan is to hit the studio THIS MONTH with 4-5 new songs, and collaborate with my buddy Dru Decaro (guitarist and co-writer for Miguel).  And it's just in time for Christmas!  You'll have the option of getting a digital copy of the EP and/or a limited edition, autographed and numbered hard copy edition! 

Our Kickstarter proceeds will go directly towards recording, production, my wonderful musicians, mixing and mastering of the EP, and production of your limited edition, numbered CD's.

I also felt it was important to use this opportunity to raise some money for STOP THE TRAFFIK, an organization making some real differences in fighting human trafficking.  New music is great, but let's raise the bar... After we hit our production goal, the future sales from this EP will be divvied up and a portion of proceeds will go directly to STOP THE TRAFFIK's Chocolate Campaign (which I'll be talking with you more about as we proceed).  You can find out more about them directly here:

The team is now in place and ready to go, so... you asked for it!  Let's make this happen!"

 
xx Joy
