The making of RIDE's debut CD entitled Curtain Call. From recording, mixing and mastering all the way to our first live show!

Dear Friends,

As you may know I've been very busy for the last several months working on my new band project called RIDE and it's debut CD of all original music entitled CURTAIN CALL.  All the songs on this record are written by me and I play guitar, keyboards and sing all the vocals.

The CD has some great songs that I am very proud of.  And I had the honor to work with some really talented people on this record.  Multi-platinum producer and musician Jim Wirt produced, engineered, mixed and played on these recordings.

 Legendary drummer from the Raspberries, Jim Bonfanti played drums on all the tracks.  His expertise in the music business is a huge asset to this project.  His clock is second to none.  He is not considered the HUMAN METRONOME for nothing.

  Andrew Cushman plays lead guitar on the record.  He is an amazing talent.  To watch him track guitars is as good as it gets.

We even have a special guest appearance by  Bob Yocum from Abbey Rodeo 

I'm almost ready to release the CD, but I need some help with the expenses to get me across the finish line.  That's why I'm taking it to you through KICKSTARTER.  Here's where you can help and receive some pretty cool rewards.

Your pledges will help finish the recordings, master the CD, produce the artwork as well as help with the packaging and distribution.  Your help can get this project over the finish line and into your hands.  Please take the time and look on this page for the great rewards I am offering.

As always, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Everything is in place for a successful release if we hit our goal. Release date will be sometime in July with a special CD release concert. We have confirmed the CD Release Concert at the Beachland Ballroom for July 26th. I have blocked recording time to finish the mastering with the studio. Also, the pressing of the CD is scheduled and T-Shirts are ready to go with your support. Creative Gold level will be a challenge but I assure those pledges will be done as fast as I can. Juggling many balls in the air at once is never easy. That's where our valued fans, friends and family make this project worthwhile and will help me get it across the finish line. I'm excited! You excited?
