I am hard at work on my 3rd full length album "Pulse", and uplifting journey of love and life. I'm making an album that will touch you and inspire you and resonate with all your emotions. The album is a mixture of dance, rock, soul and world sounds... tribal beats, soaring hooks, entrancing guitars, lush strings and bubbling synths . I want this album to be a soundtrack for the passions of your life.
I've started recorded basic tracks for the album, and I will utilize this crowd-sourcing campaign to finish the instrumentation on these recordings, and give them extra layers of dimension with live string arrangements and supporting vocals.
This is my second time as executive producer on an album, and based on the success and critical acclaim of my last release "Twilight Revival", I am certain I can deliver my best material ever. With your help, we can bring this music to the world!
I was raised by a single mom who always taught me to dream big. She herself had toured in the 1960's and 1970's as a belly dancer. She taught herself how to dance, how to sew, and sewed all her own costumes. She taught me how to be brave. She taught me how to love. She taught me that love could change the world... that it could move mountains!
This new album "Pulse" is all about love. Falling in love, Loving yourself, Loving Life, and I can't wait to share it with you all!!!
Making music is very costly. From assembling musicians and instrumentation, to recording, to mixing, to mastering, to manufacturing, to distribution, to promotion (promo materials like photos, videos) to playing live. I release my music completely independently on my own label, and currently fund all my own works. As you probably know, the music industry has changed so much, and the value of music has been completely stripped. We can band together and join the growing tide of rebels who fight for the value of this beautiful art we call music. I have a good portion of my new album already recorded, but I have hit my funding limits towards taking this body of music from dream to reality and from great to amazing. I need your help to keep this process going.
HOW WILL THE MONEY BE SPENT?
If I hit my goal, here is how the funds will be budgeted...
- Kickstarter takes a 5% fee, Amazon takes a 5% fee (- $800 to $1,000)
- Finalizing recordings of basic tracks (- $3,000)
- Recording live string arrangements (- $1,500)
- Mixing (- $1,000)
- Mastering (- $500)
- Manufacturing (- $1,000)
- Promo materials / Photo / Video - ($1,575)

I've assembled a lot of funding levels and perks that share not only my musical talents, but also my other artistic talents and some personal connections. I hope you all find something you are looking for, and I hope to connect with you all soon!
With my deepest appreciation and love,
Risks and challenges
Since my album is already in the mid stages of recording, I don't foresee any challenges in completing the material, nor any particular risks, aside from getting some samples cleared and approval for some guest vocalists to appear. If I hit road bumps along the way, I will adapt and rework as I go to ensure the completion of the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
