About this project

Hey Friends!

Ever since the live Birdie Wing debut at Lily's Bar in 2010, the requests for a recording have been non-stop.  There is nothing in the world I would love more than to get my music recorded and out there in the world.  

Putting a record together takes a ton of work: producing, recording, engineering, mastering, arrangements, musicians, CD reproduction, and on and on and on.  I have a wealth of resources; amazing musicians at my side, a Grammy nominated producer, a long list of supporters who keep encouraging me forward.  What I don't have is a wealth of, well...wealth. 

The expense of doing this has felt staggering - paralyzing. So, the idea has lain, dormant, in the "pipedream" category for a long time. But with the journey I've been on recently, I've realized you just have to do the best you can to live without regrets. No small task. So, I'm throwing this out into the wind...and hopefully we can make it fly. (Ok, that was cheesy...whatever...you get the point.) :-)

Launching this project on Kickstarter makes it possible for my shared community of friends and supporters to come together and make something happen.  I know "times is hard".  But every little drip helps.  Every. Single. One.  If I can raise above and beyond the $15,000 goal, it will go to good use for things that I'm not even trying to cover here; promo, design work, packaging, additional instrumentation, more tracks on the album, videos, etc., etc., etc. - and you know the drill here on Kickstarter; if I don't raise the $15K, I get nada.  Scary.  But I decided to go all-in, so let's make it happen.

Thanks for your continued support and belief in this project.  You all rock...and so too shall Birdie Wing.  :-)
