  I have the chance to play with some of my musical heroes growing up before my move to Los Angeles.  It is quite crazy that it is within reach! I have been a backing man for so many years and now it's my turn to create my own music with some really talented musicians that I have been incredibly lucky to have met due to networking.

  I'm recording my first jazz album, and this Kickstarter page is to help me raise the funds to get the best recording possible. All donations will go towards paying and feeding the musicians, and studio time. The musicians being hired are top notch, and I'm honored to be playing with them. 

  You can watch the full clip featuring Mark Pender and I jamming on one of the tunes that will be recorded. Just imagine the song with drums and keyboard as well, it will be glorious! -->

  Thank you for visiting the page, and for any help you can provide, I am eternally grateful!
