It's been 4 years, 3 hard crushes, 2 cities I've called home and one MASSIVE Saturn's return. Time for a new CD!
This album has been in the making for a hella long time and has been a comedy of errors, a suspense thriller, and drama. I first started recording it in the summer of 2010 but then I made out with a stranger and paid for it with a year of Mono. The next summer I re-recorded only to have the person I was working on it with also get.....Mono. That, my friends, is lightning striking twice. On the upside, it gave me time to write new pieces and make the album a bit of a journey through the entirety of my Saturn's Return.
So here I am, on my third and final version of this album and I'm really proud of it. Almost everything has been recorded and then erased and then file corrupted and now (crossing fingers) rerecorded and saved. I really looking forward to finishing this project and releasing this new CD I named "Heartstrings and Hamstrings" because it's part heart-on-the-sleeve poetry and part light-in-the-loafers jams.
The money from this kickstarter will be used for:
* Additional payment to the amazing producer and musician that is helping me make this album.
* CD mastering and printing.
*Hiring somebody to help me with PR.
* Making a new daring and dazzling Video.
I REALLY appreciate any support you can offer me. The only reason I am able to maintain a career as an artist and educator is because a community of amazing folks has supported me. I hope that I am doing you all justice. Beyond performing, last year I gave no less than 50 trans 101 talks, worked with several youth centers, answered countless emails from folks looking for advice and/or help, and done my best to be honest and loving through my writing.
Thank You so Much!
