Moonbeam Parade. Things that happen at night.

Under cover of night a sliver of magical moonbeam slips through imaginations keyhole bringing to life a mysterious passing parade.

Crazy wild things dance singing songs.

A silvery light illuminates hidden chances

Will you watch or will you follow?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm about to release my fifth solo album “Moonbeam Parade”, 13 new  tunes fueled by a new direction on electric guitar. 

Produced by myself, with my friend and producer George Reiff, with a stellar band featuring some of the best musicians in Austin, such as Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan), Howe Gelb (Giant Sand), Glenn Fukunaga (The Dixie Chicks), Michael Fracasso, Kimmie Rhodes, Gabriel Rhodes (Willie Nelson), Dony Wynn (Robert Palmer), David Pulkingham (Patty Griffin)… "Moonbeam Parade" is slated for release in the fall of 2016 on my own label “Ugly Cat Music”.

 A tour of Europe (including Italy, Germany, Holland, Belgium) is planned for September 2016 with an official Austin release party scheduled for October 21 at Strange Brew, to be followed by a tour in Texas, the South West and the East Coast.

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is all or nothing with fundraising, so if I don't raise AT LEAST $11.000, I get none of the money pledged and none of the folks who pre-ordered will get charged.

Making a well-recorded album with professional musicians and artists costs money! Costs include: studio time, bad-a** musicians, art work, photos, duplication of the CDS...

Kickstarter and Amazon fees. These guys need to get paid. They take 8 - 10% of the funds raised off the top.

The album is ready and I need your HELP to finish what I started.
If by some MIRACLE I raise more than the goal, that money will go to the promotion and marketing of the album.

I also encourage you to share the project details and link with your friends. Thanks so much for your support. I simply would not be able to do this without you guys!

Remember: THIS IS ALL OR NOTHING!
