Dear Madame or Sir,


Today, at approximately 11:59pm EST, marks the beginning of a project that will give contemporary music a home on what we today call a compact disc. (In fact, I've been debating making a few vinyls and awarding them to random backers. Stayed tuned on that) Anyways, we made it to $6,000 ($6,041.15 to be exact!) and that means that in the coming weeks, I will be making my way to San Diego to work with my good friend Sarah who will engineer the music. The album we release will feature music by Skyler Butenshon paired with Ralph Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel.

I. Am. So. Excited. You. All. Are. ROCKSTARS.

Soon, I will be sending you all a survey to ask for information I need to get you all your rewards. If you have a chance, I would love for everyone here to like my facebook page as you have started me in my professional career and I would love to update you along the way after this project is over. You can find the page


Rest easy tonight, y'all. We (and honestly, I mean YOU) have done something incredible here. And there's only more to come. I promise to update you along the way and continue to thank you endlessly.
