It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally ready to head into the studio and start working on a NEW RECORD and I am super excited about it! I’m doing this campaign to raise enough money for the project and not have to worry about being in debt afterwards. We are recording at an amazing studio in Austin called Treefort. We’ve got some great musicians on board, guys that we were able to snag while they weren’t out touring with The Old '97s or The Polyphonic Spree, and we’ll be working with some great engineers and producers who have worked on records by bands like Spoon and the lovely Patty Griffin. So we’ve got all this awesomeness lined up... and now we just have to figure out how to pay for it!
We started this campaign to help fund the album. Wonderful listeners like yourselves can be a part of the project and get cool rewards in return. We’re doing a lot of exclusive stuff this time around, like t-shirts that will only be available to pledgers and won’t be sold at shows, and acoustic demos of the songs, and even - you won’t believe this - a tour through Tuscany with yours truly. Seriously! And there’s my Norman guitar, which will be used in the making of the album - it’s going to go to one lucky pledger.... just tons of cool stuff. Check out the list and if you have any questions about any of the rewards, just ask! The emails come directly to me and I'm more than happy to answer your questions.
Every dollar really does help, because this is an entirely self-funded project, and the money goes not only to renting the studio and paying the musicians and engineers, but it also goes to the cost of producing the album AND to promoting it, which is super-expensive and is the thing that never really gets done all that well because the money just runs out. I’m setting our goal at $10K because I think it’s an achievable amount... but it’s going to cost us at least twice that to record, manufacture, and promote the album. So please share this page with your friends! And thank you so much for your support - it means a lot to know that there are so many people out there who want to help me keep making music.
love and snuggles,
