This is the moment.

Together, we can make the record I've always wanted to make.  For the first time in many years, I feel like I have something to say as a writer and my songs are connecting in a way that they never have before. Now is the time, and I need your help to make it happen!

The last three years have been very busy for me musically, and I have written dozens of songs for this record.  We have released three singles so far, and the success of "All About You" affirms everything that I am feeling about my new material - these songs are special and deserve to be heard.  If you want to hear what I've been up to musically, you can find my new songs "Here I Come", "She's Just Rock N Roll" and "All About You" everywhere great music is sold.

This Kickstarter campaign is going to be a celebration of my career to this point and I am offering items and experiences that are truly one-of-a-kind.  We are offering several items from my time on American Idol and Broadway, and when we hit our funding goal I will offer even MORE exclusive stuff!  

What's up for grabs?  How about the tuxedo jacket I wore on American Idol when I performed "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"... I remember it was Hollywood week and I had traveled with no clothes… I had come from RENT tour on the road and went straight to Hollywood… on Idol we wore our own clothes well into the finals… I remember the vintage shop in Venice, CA where I found this jacket.  It's a piece that is versatile and timeless! I love the round lapel and "worn stories" look!

The suit and scarf that I wore when performing "I Think I Love You" - This was a great find… A brand new J. Lindeberg suit at a second hand shop on Melrose Ave.  I also found the funky scarf that comes with it vintage shopping as well!

The leather jacket I wore during the top 12 episode and party on American Idol - This beautiful leather is actually from the original Broadway RENT costume shop… It was set to be thrown away and I salvaged it through the good graces of one of the show's associates 15 years ago… this jacket helped me define my look on Idol and has become truly iconic to fans. A very special piece that can be yours forever! I hate to part with this one, but I really want to make this record and trust you'll enjoy it as much as I did

The jacket I wore on one of the biggest moments of my life: opening night of Rock of Ages on Broadway... This John Varvatos one-of-a-kind piece was also seen in my appearance on The View with Barbara Walters… I remember sitting on the couch and her asking me about my father and his illness… It's a very personal item to me.

I am happy to be offering up these treasured items, and to be getting you all involved in making this new record happen!  Please, join me and let's make a great new rock record together!
