Dear Friends and Music Fans,

Here Come the Savages! I'm trying to raise funds to put out this beautiful record. It came together over a period of time, actually as two albums that have been combined; an album of covers and one of original material. Drummer Mark Patterson produced the originals at Redrum Studio with featured guest artists: Gary Newcomb, BettySoo, Jenni Wieland and George Reiff. While Jim Lewis produced the covers at Wonder Chamber with a core band of Whit Williams, Mike Meadows, George Reiff and myself. Both recordings were mixed by George Reiff and by the time this was finished we knew we had to combine them for they told the same story. 

 The thing about making an album is that it involves so many people and now I would like to involve you. I've been described in the press as "Austin's best kept secret" and I'd like to break that mold with this recording. I'm trying to raise money to pay for the mastering, artwork printing and publicity. When I did my last Kickstarter campaign what I liked best is that it allowed people to take part in my career while serving as a platform to announce my upcoming projects. So even if you aren't able to give, thank you for your consideration.

Yours truly,

MIchael
