Raising funds for my 6th record of compositions--- to be recorded in early 2012 on Spanish label "Whatabout Music" with Dave Bianchi.

About this project

I've just been made aware of "Kickstarter" and I invite you to thoroughly check out this innovative website and its purpose.  Honestly--- in this day of independent artistic endeavors and the challenge of making manifest one's vision, I think that this site is fantastic and, truly--- in the world of record-making, is a way you can have a voice, with your funding directly, in what musical innovations are brought to life.  

I am in the very early stages of envisioning the record for which  I am gathering financial support-- but it will be a collaboration, again, with producer Dave Bianchi, whose work is super diverse and with whom I've had the pleasure of making my last EP--- about Dave: (  Dave and I have set early 2012 as time to make a more focused, next-level record following ULU, my first "Whatabout" release, which is available on i-tunes, amazon, spotify, etc.  

Links for more information: from 2008 during my time as the Musician-In-Resident of Bermuda  article feature in Barcelona's Metropolitan Magazine article from Flagpole Magazine/Tribute to Billie Holiday (you can hear some of ULU, the last Whatabout EP I made) (the label) (review of Ulu, the last EP) (live street performance of a song we'll likely record on next EP, called "The Understudy, recorded in Barcelona)
