Hi all! Thanks for checking this musical project out.‘we need to return to the solitude within, to find again the dream that lies at the hearth of the soul.’ John O’Donohue
Dream...This album is the dream that lies at the hearth of my soul. I've had the privilege of recording 4 other albums and...THIS one is the one I am MOST excited about. THIS album comes out of what I've loved my whole life - songs that lead us to prayer & meditation. These are SOUL songs - songs that pull me towards what is BEAUTIFUL, GOOD, and FULL OF LIFE. These are songs about connection, love and union.
Divine Laughter.....17 years ago when I was going through one of the darkest times in my life I said this prayer, 'how do YOU see my situation?' It's hard to describe, but In that moment, I heard the sound of laughter. Divine laughter. Not mocking laughter, but warm and embracing laughter. This experience so surprised me and this moment became the catalyst for creating curiosity in me for the soul journey I've been on ever since. I believe that laughter is at the heart of Love and Love is inviting us to live from this place!
Journey...These songs are based on the journey of my heart & soul.
wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving, it doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times. Come, come again, come." Rumi
Beyond despair, I've known beauty. Beyond sadness, I've known love. Beyond brokenness, I've known laughter. The invitation is to come, just as I am. This music will invite all of us to come - just as we are.
There is something about singing that lifts me up and reminds me of what is beautiful. This album is about community - about songs we can sing together. I'm excited to have you partner with me as this album is for you, for all of us.
My goal is to record this album with Philip Janz, award winning producer who has worked with me on every project so far. To record the album, it will cost $12,000. Then there are costs of reproduction/graphic layouts/ etc. This can run between $2-4,000. For this beautiful project - I need your help! If you contribute/pre-order the album now, I am able to move into the studio to begin recording in January.
The album will be available by late March/early April. I must reach the financial goal set with this campaign (between Oct 4-Dec 3) to be able to utilize these funds and move forward.
You are free to 'donate only' or receive a portion of the 'rewards' that interest you from any pledge.
Risks and challenges
Your commitment and belief in this project goes beyond words that I can even express. Your investment goes straight into all recording costs. This project will be stewarded with the highest integrity and accountability.
I’m excited to be part of an album that holds the threads of all of us woven together.
It is always vulnerable to step out in a 'dream'. However I know that this musical offering of love will be a blessing for all of us. Please join me in making something beautiful. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your partnership.
