this is my official relaunch of " reggie and the full effect " a side project i started about 15 years ago. and i need your help to do it. with your help i hope to record, release, and tour on the first new reggie record in five years. your contributions will help me in doing so. 

reggie has always been a super fun project from the beginning,for those of you who have followed it, you know that it hit a bumpy patch for a little while in my late 20's. however, all bumps have been smoothed and i think the time is now to bring reggie back to place it used to be. 

i've spent many years touring with my chemical romance as their keyboard player and over those years i realized that i am without a doubt, a silly person, i write silly music, say silly things, i generally have a very absurd look on life.  Reggie, is how i share that silliness with all of you. I've always been honest with my music. Whatever goes on in my life i write music about.

No country for old musicians, finds me living in north hollywood, in an apt building full of early 20's aspiring dancers, models,actors, designers, etc etc etc...and me being 36 hearing their conversations from my patio, started feeling disconnected and old, cause I am. ha ha.

i started to write music about how i cant relate to any of the things they talk about. i wrote and wrote and wrote until i sat and looked and said " Holy Moly! that's a new reggie record." 

so now with songs in hand, and keyboard in tow, I plan to enter the studio and record the 6th Reggie and the Full Effect record, and then tour the living hell out of it. Because, at the end of the day I love being on stage and on the road, it's what I do best.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Reggie is a very fun project to work on. But that doesn't mean I don't have my fair share of problems. I have always dealt with the problems that arise in a very mature and responsible way. Sometimes when recording, things just are not working that day, whether it is equipment or my brain. Over my years of studio recording i have learned lots of great methods to inspire creativity in myself and others, also having fun never hurts the work enviroment. I will be very attentive to all the backers questions, requests, etc. Without you all this record won't be the same. Backers will be updated on progress continuously.
I have lots of surprises,extra rewards planned once certain goals are reached. (Unreleased songs,remixes,etc) So be sure to watch the campaign,ratfe.net,and twitter very closely.
I plan to have every backer item fulfilled by the October release date and the tour for the record. The most important thing is getting the record done and sent off to be packaged. i'm so excited to go in the studio and record. i can't wait for you all to hear it. I'm positive it will bring smiles to your faces.

FAQ

  • unfortunately since people can back out of their pledges the immediate delivery actually means immediately after the campaign is successful. I promise you that when the campaign succeeds my first task will be to send those out asap. sorry for any confusion.
