After relocating to Los Angeles from the great city of Austin Texas, I have spent the last four years finding my footing in this incredible newness. 

Starting over offers great challenges, but it also elicits true and unpredictable inspiration. The songs that I'm recording for this new record may be some of the best I've written. I am so thankful for this opportunity to finish the story together. 

Having produced and recorded myself, as well as other songwriters (Bob Schneider, Charlie Mars, Slaid Cleaves, Steve Poltz), I know where to spend a dollar and where to save a dollar. I promise that the money I raise here on kickstarter will be used diligently and frugally. 

The initial goal is to raise funds that will pay for studio costs, musicians, mixing, artwork, design, and packaging of this new record. Anything beyond that will open more opportunity for the music to be performed and discovered.

Everything that I can do myself I will do myself. This will ensure that the end result more than honors the money spent to get there. I want to give you a record that sounds like a classic. So, thank you thank you and let's make some music!

Here are some images that correspond to some of the awards available!!!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of making a record are few, but they do exist. Beyond the financial element they exist mainly in the form of delays.

My plan is to have this record out by June, but if it is delayed a bit it will only be for the sake of quality, not lack of enthusiasm or dedication. As my manager Barry Bergman likes to say…"Don't be in a hurry to get it done, be it a hurry to get it done RIGHT."

We plan and we adapt.
The music is written, the recordings have started, and the expectation is for us to be singing the same song in the not too distant future!
