Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter campaign! My recent journey to produce the "Changin' the World by Changin' Me" EP started at an impromptu performance at the YMI Cultural Center during Hatch Asheville 2011. I played in a small upstairs room with only my voice and my guitar. In that room sat about 50 people united by music. There was magic that night. Between the people I met and the connections that were felt, I see that evening as the pivotal moment when my adventure began.
This launched a flood of community support that I had never expected. I was even honored with the opportunity to record on the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus. This all led up to June 3, when I recorded my first song at Echo Mountain for a planned EP. I was overwhelmed by the number of people who believed in me and how they expressed their passion for my project by the donation of their time, talents, and resources.
With your contributions to my Kickstarter Campaign, I will record the rest of my first professionally recorded EP with producer Josh Blake. We will be employing local musicians and recording and mixing at Echo Mountain Studio. After the release of this CD, I will book my first tour.
With so much encouragement from the arts and music community here as well as the supporters of this project from around the world, I realize now that this project is something larger than me and I am honored to play my part. So, I invite you to join me on this adventure!
