In August of 2011, I released my first solo album titled, "Brand New Bike". Since then I've been able to release two EP's, produce/direct dozens of music videos from the projects on YouTube, and tour the country meeting the people that support my music.

Over the past year with, the help of co-producer Wilson Luxurious and lead composer Maggie Brown, I've been putting together a full-length album. I was lucky enough to collaborate with my close friends that I've been working with from the beginning, who also happen to be some of the most talented artists and musicians in Seattle.

Now, nearly 3 years after the release of Brand New Bike, I'm ready to release my 2nd official full length album. Through hard work and the support of you, the people, we have been able to continue putting out the music we love to make. We hope that this spring we can finally let you all hear it. The money raised from this Kickstarter will go towards production of the album (recording, mixing, mastering) and 2 music videos (camera rental, equipment rental, videographer). Anything over the goal will be put towards the production of additional music videos.

The records and music videos that we truly want to make require a budget that is currently out of our reach. Prior to this album, we have had to sacrifice quality due to lack of budget. With your help, we can go bigger than we ever have before and make this project all it deserves to be. 

Risks and challenges

As an eccentric artist, there's always a chance there will be last minute revisions needed to perfect the album that may stall the release. No matter what happens I can promise that this project will be finished in good time and it will be all that I intended it to be.
