       Over the years I've found great pleasure in having my way with other peoples songs,  especially those very far from my own personal musical universe. See the Journey EP I did a couple years back.

       And so there I am wholesomely watching The Sound of Music with my wife and children (I hadn't seen it or thought about it in many years) and it brought on a powerful homesick type feeling and vague jumbled memories, which is always a good place from which to start a project. So I googled the sheet music and started in.

      Now I would never dare change the words but I am going to contort the music rather severely. I plan to round up some bad-ass Nashville players and just go for it. Imagine Julie Andrews after too many beers and a belly full of hot chicken. 

      In the end the Von Trapps have to literally sing for their lives and that's something we here Nashville understand fairly well, and we have some nice hills too.

As always I come to you with open hand and heart and my deepest gratitude for enabling me to make this project a reality.

Track Listing (still subject to change):

1 The Sound of Music (the hills are alive)

2 My Favorite Things

3 The Lonely Goatherd

4 Something Good

5 Edelweiss 

The $3500 goal is really the bare minimum needed to make the EP. If more is raised I may do a vinyl pressing.

Risks and challenges
