Greetings jazz fans! I just finished laying down the tracks for my new studio album featuring 8 new original compositions back in November and the basic tracks so far sound fantastic! I am really excited about this album! But there is much more to do. I need to Mix and Master the Album, and hire a good publicist that will help me get this record in front of the eyes of wonderful people who like good music!

I am also recording a live album at the North Shore's Premier Jazz Club Chianti the last weekend in April Friday and Saturday night. I will be doing this with my new organ trio which features Justin Faulkner on Drums and Jake Sherman on Hammond B3 Organ. We will also have very special guest Warren Wolf (From Christian Mcbrides band) playing vibes with us on Saturday April 30th. I am going to need funds to hire the recording engineer for this one as well and money to mix and master the record.

I need your help to finish these projects!  I have already spent a lot of my own money on recording, and I am looking to you to help me find the funds to finish it.  Having you as micro-funders allows me to stay independent and make the best records possible. That being said, I will be trying to get both of these records on a label so that I can get the maximum amount of exposure I can possibly get. If neither one of these records gets picked up I am planning on releasing one of the records just digitally and one digitally and physically. The kicker is that I need to meet my goal of 2,500$ to get anything! That's right if I don't get the full amount I get 0$. You can be a part of this project and make it come to life!
