A Boy and His Kite - The Path Became A Ghost

It's been awhile since I've released new music. Seven years to be exact. In that time I've grown to appreciate the unexpected journey of life. It's mysterious, it's full of surprises, it's beautiful and it's fragile. Often I've wished it was an easy and well marked path forward but that has not been my experience. "The Path Became A Ghost" is an album exploring what happens when the way forward disappears. When the path becomes a ghost do we have the courage to follow? I hope these new songs can inspire and encourage you on that journey.

Dream Goal!

25K - Ideally 25k will allow me the funds to use my favorite mastering engineer. I enjoy mastering many records; however, it has been a dream of mine to send this record off to a world class engineer to help put the final sonic touches on the album. I'm very excited for this potential!

Risks and challenges
