It's time for my 4th album! Come visit for studio updates and song previews and support all the amazing participating musicians!

Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter page. I'm currently working on my 4th album release, independently. All songs have been written and about a third way through recording I find myself slowly crawling along without financing. I'm here asking for your participation in finishing the recording process and starting up touring and promotion. Though it would take much more money to check everything on my "to do" list, our $10,000 goal will be indispensable for me, my fellow musicians, engineer, graphic designer and everyone else involved.

The music on this album is my best yet and your support could be the difference between just a nice sounding product that takes months to complete and a pristine sounding album, finished only weeks from now and promoted properly. You give - you get back - CDs, T-shirts, live shows, personalized songs, songbooks and more...

UPDATE: All pledgers, no matter what level, will also be getting my compositions CD Music To Moving Pictures (released a couple of years back and only available digitally up to now!) Also, mistakenly omitted, All those pledging $50 and above will be thanked by name in the album liner notes!

If you like the music but can't afford a pledge, I understand. Please consider posting a link to your facebook or twitter accounts and spreading the word - any help is much appreciated. You can find my facebook page here - previews and updates will be posted in the coming weeks.

Thank you!

Roy
