Alright everyone. Here's the deal. I'm in the process of recording my first EP and I would love for you to be a part of it!  In my experience, I've found that small (or big) gifts from many people come together to create a significant impact. I have seen it in humanitarian efforts at home and abroad. Now, Kickstarter gives budding artists like me a chance to make our projects become a reality.  

I think you will like the blend of music, lyrics, and vocals I've put together for this record. Songwriting and performing are passions of mine, and I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be working with such talented musicians as Matt Berry (guitar/producer), Jasper Nephew (electric guitar), Aaron Fabbrini (bass guitar), and Kevin Holvig (percussion). Expect some incredible instrumentals, people!

Thank you so much for visiting this page! I would greatly appreciate any help... And don't forget to check out the super cool rewards on the right side of the page!

Much love,

Nels Leafblad

PS... I've compiled a few samples for your listening pleasure. Please realize that these are preliminary rough demos of actual songs off of my upcoming EP!
