It's a labor of love four years in the making.
As it turns out, "Canadian Pacific" the song was written shortly before the release of my first, self-titled release. In a way, I was always glad it didn't quite make that record; It never seemed to fit. But with this new record, "Canadian Pacific" fits perfectly. In fact, it fits so well that I named the album after it! And it looks like this.....
What songs are on the record, you ask?
1. I'll Be Right Here Where You Left Me
2. What a Dream
3. Mexican Wine
4. Our Home in Yonder Field
5. An Acre
6. Sorrow in This House
8. Around the Wheel
9. The Girl I Loved in Sunny Tennessee
10. Canadian Pacific
11. It's Time
I am intensely proud of this project, and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it. Now, it goes like this: without your help, I cannot finish making the album. As many of you know, the costs associated with making a record are great. This Kickstarter project aims to recoup some of these costs. The cost of paying the great musicians on the record; guys like Nate Gonzalez, Ryan Snyder, John Farrell, and Tommy Geddes. The cost of recording tracks at Morning Star Studios with Dave Schonauer and Glenn Barrett. And the cost of manufacturing physical CDs. It all adds up to about $3,500. All told, that's just a portion of what it takes to make a record.
Take a moment to peruse the rewards on the right; see if there's anything that interests you. And remember that EVERY dollar counts!
Thank you for all of your support! And we'll see you in the fall with a new record!
