We are kicking off our 7th European tour with a CD release of our newest EP - 'A Ghost You Let In'. Recorded at Soundtronics Studio in Brooklyn, NY. Engineered and co-produced by my close friend and bass player for years, Lenny Monachello. I was fortunate enough to have help the writing and production of this album by Greg Tuohey (guitars), Lenny Monachello (bass), Crash Gordon (drums).  We also had the amazing Heidi Sidelinker, Jessi Robertson and Rosi Golan sing with us. 5 brand new songs.

We are also raising funds to re-master our previous EP - 'Like Water' which we will also have ready for this tour and CD release party. 

The CD release is set for May 10th at Rockwood Music Hall - Stage 2. Midnight. Then off to Europe May 15th - Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands starting May 15th.  I will be staying in Berlin and performing throughout the summer leading up to a huge 40 day tour late August- early October. Europe has been a tremendously successful touring market for us and this year we plan to crack it wide open. 

We need you help raising $4500 to pay for the engineering, mixing, mastering, and duplication of the this EP as well as some start up costs for the tour like plane tickets for 4 people, van rental, posters, gas money and our German tour manager and booking agent, Olaf. I have simply maxed out every credit card, and as much as I hate asking friends, family, and fans for money, I just simply cannot do it all without your help. If we can raise more then the $4500 that money will go towards promotion, Europe management, publicity, and a radio campaign that we desperately need to make the next 5 months of touring successful. 

The most popular contribution for a fundraiser such as this is to pre-purchase the music with either the $10 digital download or $20 hardcopy. This gets you our last 10 songs.  Every dollar helps so please forward this link to your friends.

 The music buisness is a very difficult one and with major labels gone the way of the dodo bird, it's up to bands to come up with the money themselves these days to get a running start. 

Thank you so much for taking a look and for your help!!

Much love

Steve

    Reward #4 plus I will write you a song. For this reward, I send you an email asking for a subject matter. Either a story about a person or event, or just an image pulled from a dream or emotion. This is how most songs start for me. I'll take that seed and put it to words and music. You can also choose to use a poem you like instead. Thank you!
