Over the past six months I've been writing, recording, and working towards completing an EP.  I'm almost done the recording part and about to embark on mixing and mastering the record.  I want this to be my best record yet, and so I'm going to some of the best in the business to do the mixing and mastering.  To accomplish this I'm asking for your help! 

The EP is called Better Halves.  It's about falling in love, marriage, and the way these things can go wrong.  This is the happiest I've ever been with a collection of songs and I'm so excited to share them with you.

Here's a video of "Home is Love" one of the songs from the record:

 I've got some great rewards.  Everything from Tshirts to dinners, guitar lessons to collaborations.  I'm really excited about this!

Risks and challenges

The only foreseeable issue for delivery is if either the mixing studio or mastering suite get booked up which could delay when they will be able to work on my project.
