WHAT I'M UP TO...
I've created an album full of love, life, and learning that's almost ready to share with you all. I’ve experimented with a lot of sounds over the years and I’m excited to make this album a new experience. The demos are already sounding great! I'll combine my existing EP with new tracks I've written to craft an artistic collection of songs. Music is made to be heard, and I've got something special to share with you.
I have all of the creative tools to complete the album and the backing of a professional recording studio. Now I just need a little financial help to make this album happen. And while I would busk every street corner until the goal is reached, I want to get this into your hands and ears sooner!
WHAT IF I EXCEED THE GOAL?
Coming up with the right amount for my goal was the hardest part! $7,000 is the minimum goal I need to reach so I am hoping to stretch even further than that.
Additional funding would allow me to record a couple of bonus tracks and feature additional musicians for a more robust sound. Better funding = a better product. There it is. :) There's just no such thing as "extra" money when it comes to making an album.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
As a performer, I know that what I do means nothing without a supportive audience so I want to make this investment totally worth your while. I hope you can find a pledge that works for you and if you’re not able to support at this time, spreading the word can do a lot to move things forward. Every little bit helps, it really does, and I'm sincerely thankful in advance.
WHAT TO EXPECT
If the goal is reached, I'll move quickly. I'll head into the studio by October. After mixing and mastering is completed, I'm planning on a December release. I'll have a release party to celebrate a collaborative effort by all involved. Then, I'll peddle our creation far and wide and into the ears of as many as will hear. I'll use BandCamp to house the album for download. I’m excited to get on the road and promote this beauty!

Risks and challenges
With the material written and recording studio set, I'm not anticipating any hiccups. However, scheduling conflicts with the studio may delay the process somewhat.
Thank you for taking this ride with me, and for whatever you can contribute to this campaign. I'd be honored to have you involved. I can't wait to get this album finished and into your hands and ears.
Stay tuned for campaign updates on my Facebook page!
