About this project

It's been almost 9 years since I recorded my last album, Moving Day, and I want to go back into the studio to record the follow up. I've been talking about doing this off and on for 4 years and I've raised a portion of the necessary funds already through performance and merchandise sales, but this Kickstarter project will insure I can make these songs sound like they deserve to sound. The album is ready to be recorded, I just need the financial boost to get it off the ground.  Most importantly for some, as an additional incentive, if I reach my fundraising goal I will shave off the facial hair I've had for the last 19 years...

Risks and challenges

I've recorded and released 4 albums prior to this and I see no major challenges once the funds are in place. I'm putting together a great group of musicians and have no doubt the album will be completed and released just like every time I've set out to do it. Obviously, once you rely on other people unexpected delays can occur, but I am confident that the project will be completed.

Furthermore, It looks like I have a barber all picked out and several more than willing friends to drive me there if I get cold feet about being clean shaven after so long.
