I'm going to make a new album, hopefully with support from you! I'm going to write all new songs and make demos for the album, focusing on a strong clear delivery, energetic and heartfelt from rock to melancholy and back again. I'm planning to record in Omaha with my longtime band members and special guests coming out to play. My plan is to start writing soon after this campaign ends, be recording in the fall, and complete the project before Spring 2015.

I'm offering lots of cool incentives, including the demos for the record. check them out, and feel free to ask questions! I will be updating often. Thanks for visiting!

Risks and challenges

I hereby pledge to do everything mentioned above, as scheduled, come hell or high water. Trust in me, I won't let you down!
