Raising funds for my 6th record of compositions--- to be recorded in early 2012 on Spanish label "Whatabout Music" with Dave Bianchi. Read more
This project's funding goal was not reached on November 28, 2011.
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: (http://www.groovelovesmelody.com/2011/09/12/whatabout-music-with-dave-bianchi/) 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.
