:: After doing some growing, traveling, living (in places like Italy and Japan), and learning, I have compiled a few songs that I personally believe to be the most accurate representation, thus far, of who I am. The album, Blue Road, was recorded partially in SoHo, NY at Singing Serpent Studios, partially in Newburgh, NY at Off the Block Recording, and partially in Miami, FL at Bieler Bros. Studios, and was produced by Chris Petrosino and Rob McCurdy, and mixed by Chris Petrosino.

As everything started falling into place, I realized just how proud I was of the collection of songs we created. For the first time, I feel that the essence of my music is truthfully represented in the recording and post-production processes. I can’t wait to share these songs with everyone very soon.

:: Now that the songs have finally come to life, I would love to get my EP pressed to disc. This would mean that everyone would get to experience the music as it was intended -as a hard copy. There is something so special about experiencing music on disc... something not quite translated electronically. The downside to pressing is that it cost a lot more money than releasing it electronically. This is where I need your help!

:: Whether you give 1 dollar or 100 dollars, I will be so thankful for your support. To show you how thankful I am, I have put together some fun rewards that I think you will like. These rewards include custom artwork, posters, shirts, covers, house shows and more. I can't wait to get started on this project!

:: If I meet my goal and complete this Kickstarter project, the money will go into pressing copies of Blue Road. If for any reason I exceed my target goal, the rest of the money will be spent paying back the expenses of recording the EP. I would love to be able to give back to the amazing musicians and producers who worked tirelessly on a project they believed in, with little to no compensation. They are the true champions of Blue Road.

Risks and challenges

:: I hope to get all of your rewards out as soon as possible! I appreciate your patience with this process.
