Thank you in advance for checking out my kickstarter, I have many exciting opportunities in 2013, and I'm hoping you can become a part of it!

Last year I teamed up with Grammy nominated producer Mack Damon to realize a dream to record some songs that have been stuck in my head for far too long.  The end result, this new EP entitled "Following Signs" is my best work to date, and I can't wait to share it with all of the people that support me and my music.  

The record is finished, and I couldn't be more pleased, but in order to give it the push it deserves, I could use a little help with extra costs like high end mastering, better quality artwork and duplication, new merch designs and promo materials and more.  Releasing this record to reach the greatest possible audience is expensive, and kickstarter is a great way for you to help and get involved. 

The goal in the top right corner of this page is how much I need to follow through with all these goals for the first part of 2013, and I plan to be back in the studio this summer to follow with another release before year's end.  Keep in mind, if I don't reach the  goal amount in the number of days shown.. then everyone will receive the full amount that they pledged back. I'm hopeful we reach this goal, or even surpass it, though, so I can get this music in to as many hands as possible.

The different options to the right give you a chance to get the record and single before everyone else, get some great new merchandise, even book a private acoustic or full band show!  Take a few minutes to look at these different packages listed. You have my extreme gratitude for any and all donations and your time.   Keep in mind, just sharing this page with others is help that I could use, and I appreciate any help you're willing to offer.  

Thank you so much for you time, I look forward to seeing you on the road ahead.

****UPDATE!!!****

We've just received great news that Sam Hanke over at Old School FX pedals wants to help in our effort! Jackson uses OSFX pedals in the studio and on stage, and they are some of the best out there.  Sam has offered to donate a new OSFX guitar pedal of your choosing for the people that opt for the $400 package and up. These pedals are incredible and usually MSRP in the $150 price range, so this an amazingly generous offer that will benefit our supporters. Thanks again to Sam. Check them out at:

and look for them on the road with Jackson Parten live!

****UPDATE 2!!!****

We're putting on a private reception/listening party at Hollywood Studios for all the people at the $50 level or higher.  Come join Jackson and producer as he shows you how these songs came together and gives you a sneak peek behind the scenes of these recordings.  Hor d'oeuvres and beverages will be served and all questions are welcome!  We're aiming for the week before the release party in Mid-March, pending confirmations of dates on Jackson's calendar.   We'll post the date here ASAP.

Risks and challenges

There is zero risk this project won't be completed, because the record is already completed. The vendors we are using for mastering, duplication and design have a minimum of 5 years of successful transactions with the producer and project manager, Mack Damon. If this project is funded, you will receive all the goods outlined, come hell or high water!
