I have been playing drums nearly 40 years. Everything that has been recorded & released has been a collaboration or other artists' material. This is the first time I am releasing all original music written by ME. A big part of the last 3 years has been spent on this project. The recording & mixing are complete. There are also some very Cool special guests: David " Fuse " Fiuczynski, Michael Manring, Percy Jones, Scott McGill & Tim Garton. The album title is WEEK & it contains 9 songs. Kickstarter looks like the perfect place to pre-sell & also answer some questions: 1) How many people will pay for this album? 2) Do these buyers want a CD or Download? 3) Should it be 1 disc or 2? Since everyone knows me as a drummer, the fact that I only play drums on 3 songs might be a problem. So I am offering a second disc as part of the rewards. This additional disc will have 8 songs with drums & a solo drum piece. The rewards start at $2.00 and go to $500.00 for the Executive Producer Credit! If we surpass the goal, any additional funds will go towards my next release. I am very excited to finally be releasing this! Hopefully You will be a part of it. Thank You for your time!

Risks and challenges

This album will be released in September if the $2200.00 goal is reached. The recording, mixing & cover art are ready to go. There will not be a delay unless I die before September 2013. If I am dead, my niece will fulfill these rewards.....
