Hey! Thanks for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter page! 2012 is going to be a great year!

I’m excited to announce that I have a new full band CD coming out this April! I have been in the studio working hard with producer Mack Damon at Hollywood studios in San Antonio for the past few months and can’t wait for everyone to hear these great songs.  I have been given the opportunity to work with some amazing musicians on this record, including: John Carrol ( Cory Morrow), Joe Cortez (Johnny Cooper), James Hertless (Josh Abbott), Marty Muse (Robert Earl Keen), and many more. 

I have already finished recording the songs for this new CD and now just need some help raising money for costs associated with the promotion of this release. This is where Kickstarter comes in. Kickstarter was created to help support little guys like me. I have set a goal amount that you can see in the top right corner of this page. This is how much I need to achieve all of the great things that I have planned for 2012, and like I said this will be a huge year! If I do not reach this goal amount in the number of days shown.. then everyone will receive the full amount that they pledged back. However, if I do reach this goal or even surpass it I get to use that money on all the exciting plans that I have explained above.

This gives you a chance to get the record and single before everyone else, get some great new merchandise, even book a private acoustic show or a private full band show, along with many other special offers!! Please take a look at these different packages that I have listed. I am immensely grateful for any and all donations and can not thank you enough for your time and support!

I can’t wait for this music to get out there for everyone to hear. This is easily the best thing that I have ever been a part of!

Ways that your donations will help me achieve my goals!

Mastering- The last step in the production process. Polishes the final mix of the tracks

Duplication- The actual process to design and make hard copies of the cd!

New Merchandise- T-Shirts, Koozies and more!

Radio Promotion- A radio promoter will send several designated songs all across the state of Texas and into Oklahoma and we will be visiting those stations!

Also need a few upgrades in road gear including a new trailer for the band!
