Hi, I'm Brett Saxon!

Three years ago I packed up my life, boarded a plane, and moved to New York City with my suitcase and a guitar.
Two years ago I started writing new material to record a full length album.
Last year I toured through 25 states and continued to write.
A week ago the rest of my belongings finally arrived in New York.

And today? Today I'm asking for your help because I'm ready to record a my first full length studio album. It will be a milestone for me. Dare I say a milestone for music? Whatever it will be, I want all of you to be a part of the process! Since my arrival in New York I have met a plethora of talented and inspiring people. People that when you're working together there is that special presence that fills the room. It's that jive. That groove. That heartbeat. That something that can't be faked or digitally generated. Some of those people who provide this will be joining me in the studio and include; Valerie Kuehne, Lucio Menegon, Derek Johnson, Tim Morrison, and Michelle Denardo.
Adding to that jive will be producer and founder of the Axis Collective, Chris Tabron at a studio in the heart of Brooklyn

This album is set to be the largest piece of work of my career, containing 10-13 original finely crafted songs to be tracked over the course of three weeks.
I'm asking you to help us raise the money to make it all possible.

Where your money will be going?

The Kickstarter $5,000 is only a portion of the total amount it will cost to fully fund this album - a very important starting point. This money will be put towards studio costs, producer costs, mixing of the album and last but not least: artist fees for all the brilliant people involved in this work. From there I will have it mastered and shipped off to be replicated and packaged.

But this isn't just about charity - if you help us out, we'll say thank you by sending you some awesome stuff!

To the right there is a list of wonderful and unique gifts you will receive for pledging! Everything ranging from limited edition posters to original harmonicas used in the studio sessions. (Hey! you never know how much they will be worth someday!) Plus, each and every pledge will receive a personal thank you note from yours truly.

This is something I cannot do alone. This is my life.
I want you to be a part of the experience with me, and in doing so, be a part of my life and my dream. Every pledge will help and is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!!!

Much love,
Brett
