Hey everyone. This is Brad Gilbert but most people know me as writer/producer Simon Illa. After years of putting it off and tons of encouragement from my friends/associates, I have decided to write a biography about my life and work. The challenges and adversities I have faced in my life are not what most people expect and I have continued to accomplish so much of what I set out to do in my career in the music business. In the book, I talk about being born OI (Osteogenesis Imperfecta), the loss of my parents, growing up in a small town in Illinois, relationships, following dreams, and my skills of persistence. No better time than now to tell my story so far I guess. What I have done is dictate my stories 'chapters' in audio format. Now I am at the stage where It is necessary to move to transcription/editing/printing/encoding for digital books etc. These are all things I know nothing about and need to pay someone else to do in order to get my book out to the masses... LOL! It is my hope that anyone who reads or listens to this book will get something out of it to help them in their own lives as I know I do by ready about others.
After you've seen the video, feel free to 'Google' my name and you will be able to find out more about myself and my work. Also, find me on facebook and twitter!
Anywho, thank you all so much in advance for helping me manifest yet another goal in my life that I hope everyone can enjoy and gain something meaningful out of. I love you all!

As far as the rewards go, I will do my best to complete them in a timely manner given the progress/process of getting the book together plus my studio/travel schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
