Simply put, over the course of writing these songs and recording this album I became a man. My first ever album, "We Were All Like Whatever" was recorded by my dear friend Pete Lewis of Rock On audio in his home studio. We spent many moons (about a year and a half) tracking and mixing. I even mowed lawns to finance the mastering... Some of my dearest and most talented friends played on it... It was SO. MUCH. FUN. At this point you may find yourself asking "well if it's already finished, why is he asking me for money?"... Well, the thing is I have no CDs to give anyone, and no art work to boot. Pete and I put so much love and care into this that you can hear it on the tracks. I'd really love to give it the packaging and high quality duplicating it deserves, ya know... make it POP. So please, give what you can, help me make my dream a reality, and rock a totally awesome t shirt along the way.
THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenges I anticipate are 1) getting enough funding to press the CDs and 2) getting some album art that does the music justice... Friends, without your help this likely isn't going to happen. Really, at this point the fate of this project is literally in YOUR hands! So if you dig it or know someone who might dig it, share it, and if you happen to have any graphic design skills or a good aesthetic eye for album art work, or any helpful knowledge whatsoever drop me a line! I'd love to make this a collaborative effort that yields the best possible creation we can dream up in our silly little heads...
