Hello Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for taking the time to check out my KICKSTARTER.
On May 1st I will begin recording my third record entitled All Night Pharmacy. The songs for this record have been in the making for several years, since my last release in 2009 (Arms Around A Ghost). Because it has been so long, I am all the more excited to finally be sharing more of my work with you. But to do that, to record these songs the way I want to, with the people I want to, it takes money. To put it simply, I need your help!
The pledges you make will go directly to...
-Production, Engineering, Mixing, Mastering
-Manufacturing of CD's, Vinyl, T-shirts, Posters
To give you a sneak peak into the record, I have included up top a solo live performance of Sweet Isolation, filmed by Ryan Nethery in Brooklyn,NY. This is the one song on the record co-written with the talented Steven Fiore. Here are the names of six songs that for sure will be on the record...and more will be revealed upon release.
1) All Night Pharmacy
2) Sweet Isolation
3) The Dream Song
4) Heart Of Mine
6) Chandelier love
I am aiming for such a big goal because although many of these songs were written with just me and my guitar, I will be spending a lot of time experimenting in the studio with full arrangements. Doubled guitars, piano, drums, bass, bells, whistles, train cars whizzing by, string sections and more will find itself on this record. This process takes extra time in the studio to get right, which is why I am asking for the amount I have set. To be able to pay the engineer and session players properly and bring this project to it's fullest potential.
For the Poster/T-shirt design I have the great and rare privilege of working with Mike Beyer from Crackerfarm. Mike has been doing video/photography/art design for The Avett Brothers for the last 7 years and is truly an amazing artist. Check out a little sampler of his previous work here...
Now, to the business of pledge rewards - I think it's only fair you get an idea of what kind of weird little drawings you will be getting on your Special Thank You Postcards.
If you opted for the 8X10 Framed Photograph donation level, you get to choose one of these five Tour Photos I took from this year. I shot these on a very old Konica 35mm camera.
If you have gone above and beyond and donated 5,000 dollars or more, I will give you my treasured Harmony Guitar, signed ofcourse. Here she is...
I can't thank you all enough for helping this project come together. If you have any questions about the various pledge rewards, please feel free to ask. I literally can't make this record without you guys. Lets make a record!
