About

I released my debut record, Hurricane, in April of 09 and have been promoting it independently since then.  Two singles from that project were officially released in Europe and Australia, both of which charted on several country charts and received good radio play.  One single spent several weeks on the Pan-European Country Music Chart.  Unfortunately, airplay and chart success don't always lead to great monetary gain.  The recording and promotion of Hurricane have been 100% self-funded.  My sound is generally described as too bluegrass for country and too country for bluegrass.  On the bright side, there is a wonderful audience for my kind of music.  Ironically, however, there is not much label support for it.  This project will have a decidedly more acoustic/bluegrass lean than Hurricane and will be recorded primarily using the musicians in my live show.  The majority of the material selected was written by me.  There will also be tunes written by John Pennell (Everytime You Say Goodbye, Dark Skies), Mark Simos (Crazy Faith, Take Me For Longing) and Alan Johnston (Two Dimes And A Nickel, Sweet Appalachia).  The project will feature Don Rigsby as producer, as well as special guest musicians and is slated to be recorded at Windy Oaks Studio in Galax, VA.

Your contribution will help cover the cost of studio rental, the producer, photography and artwork related to the project, travel expenses, and mastering, pressing, and promotion of the project.
