Hello, friends!

WE HIT OUR GOAL OF $2000 IN 48 HOURS!!

If we can raise another $1000 the project will get EVEN better! Details are coming soon!

Merry Christmas and welcome to my Kickstarter project! I am gearing up to complete and release my first ever studio EP. This has been something that I've talked about with friends, family, and even complete strangers for YEARS! Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I think now is the time. The only downside is that it's ridiculously expensive to do the following:

1. Record the songs

2. Pay the musicians

3. Get physical copies made

To get all of this done, it is going to cost almost $5000. I have invested my own money, but don't have enough to finish the project properly. So in order to get things rolling and get the CD finished in time for the holiday season, I am going to need your help! You are the reason that I do this, and I want to make sure that you are rewarded for helping me achieve my dreams.

I have an amazing producer! Richard Parkinson has worked with some of the most talented people in the music industry. I knew he was right for this project because he also produced David Archuleta's "Christmas from the Heart".

REWARDS
I've come up with a bunch of rewards to start off your Christmas season right! It's better than fruitcake and almost as much fun as gingerbread house construction...I'm particularly excited about the live experience ones, like playing a show at your family party! My person favorite is the ugly Christmas sweater...kind of like these...Contributions of any amount will get access to all of the project updates as well. This means you'll get to know the album title, see the artwork, and hear a track from the album before anyone else!

I can't thank you enough for the love and support everyone has shown me! This is the next step in achieving years of hard work...and you get to come along for the ride.

Risks and challenges

In looking at the risk and challenges of this project...it makes everything feel more real. I'm scared that I won't finish on time, but luckily I have an incredible team surrounding me. My family.

They have pushed me to do this for years, and I couldn't do it without them. That is why I want to invite you into our home for the holiday season. It's a special time of year for all of us, because at the end of the day our families are what we can count on.
