As many of you know, I spent four years from 2007-2011 living at Karmê Chöling, a meditation center nestled in the rolling green hills of Vermont. During that time, an intensive period of growth, discovery, and opening, I wrote several new songs that I have been longing to record and share with the world.

The time has finally come - essentially, I feel that I can't wait any longer. I plan to start recording later this summer and have a complete album ready in time for the holidays. I am thrilled to be working with PJ Goodwin of Debo Band as a producer/sound engineer and to be bringing back superb multi-instrumentalist Dinty Child of Session Americana to play on the album. Other stellar musicians are still to-be-announced. Like Burning For Music, which I released in early 2006, this will be a full band record.

The songs are all ready to go and are eagerly awaiting your ears. A few title previews: "Chasing Innocence", "Golden Sun Love Song", "Winter's Whiskey" and "Pictures of Snow".

Your kind and generous support through this Kickstarter campaign will allow me to fund the project, which includes compensating the producer and the musicians, the graphic design for the album, and the physical production of the CDs. Time and money have been my reasons for not recording this album yet - the time excuse is gone and with your support, so will the money excuse. Thank you so much!
