All Around Us is the title of my second studio album and will be recorded this fall in Reykjavik, Iceland. This project is to help fund the expenses of living and making this album abroad for two months.

The album will feature some songs I have been aching to finalize and record for a while now, as well as some brand new pieces. The theme of the album is finding love all around you and within you, and reflecting on the loss and gain of friendships over time.

I will be working with Alex Somers, a Reykjavik-based recording engineer and producer. He's done amazing production work for artists such as Julianna Barwick, Pascal Pinon, and Jónsi, and I'm excited to collaborate in the studio with him to make something beautiful!

I have never spent time outside of the United States (except briefly Canada), and I'm excited to be in a totally new environment and atmosphere to live and record. Traveling and recording is expensive but within reason, and with your help you can make my dream a reality!

Currently my plan is to self-release the album but I'm also open to working with interested parties to help put it out.

Risks and challenges

I've set a rough timeline for how long I anticipate it will take to finish and ship the rewards, but it is a long process and manufacturing, shipping, and printing can be unpredictable. I will do everything I can to have the project done and on your doorstep by next summer.
