About this project

     After nine years of waiting to feel the excitement and fervor/obsession for composing and singing, I'm back with a passion, writing creative, unique, universal songs, and preparing them to be played by fellow musicians and recorded and mixed and mastered and produced. As always, I am using the very best musicians and engineers and producers that I know and their talents and time cost money. Some of the tracks will be sent to me from other parts of the world. For some, I have to bring the musicians down to my studio to record. (This means flying them down to Mexico, providing their lodging, and paying them for their time, let alone their talent!) For the mixing and mastering I will be going to Los Angeles to work with my favorite engineers and mastering engineers. Other than for a set of studio monitors-the only equipment that forms a part of this budget-and an upgraded version of Pro-Tools (v. 9.0) the software I already use in my studio, the entire budget will be used for airfares, salaries of musicians, per-diems of musicians, salary of mixing engineer and mastering costs, graphic artist, photography, and the manufacture of 1,000 cd's (this number yields the best price point for manufacturing). Of course, as they are my compositions, I play, sing, record, and do everything else with passion and joy. This budget is solely to pay my fellow musicians and dear friends-who have always supported me selflessly- a fraction of the money that they are so clearly worth.   I'm inviting you to be a part of this project where every person's input and participation is equally important for its optimum realization.  Thank you for your time and consideration.
