Alexa brings "a Bedtime Anthology" into your bedroom.

$386

I'm setting out to record my new educationally fertile, dream-inducing album and accompanying hand-sewn picture-book entitled

a Bedtime Anthology 

inspired by the age-old tradition of reading bedtime stories to children. Each song reveals a multi-dimensional lesson and each colored ink drawing captures the quirky theme of its related narrative.

This project is set for release in mid August, 2013. But I need help! With your pledges I can make physical copies of my album & picture-book to disseminate to those desiring a new collection of bedtime stories to fall asleep and dream to. I'll also be able to pay the wonderfully talented Melanie Balderas for her ever-lovely mixing services. 

Recording of Longitude & Latitude under way at Rawhide Records.

Success is only made possible with the love and encouragement surrounding a project, with all the hands that clap for its existence. I am so thankful for the support you give me. 

Risks and challenges

There is a possibility of delays in the recording/mixing process due to barking dogs and/or rainy days mushing up acoustics at Rawhide Records. Should these delays effect the release date of the album & art book, all backers will be personally notified.
