Hello, friend! Here's me, an independent L.A. musician producing my third album of happy, peppy pop tunes! It's another feel-good collection of my easy-going west-coast sensibility, taking on life in the Big City with tunes like “When The Big One Hits,” about our fab yet shaky Southern California lifestyle, “Guy In The Sky,” about God or lack thereof, and “Meat”, about, well, meat, to name a few.
I was well on the way to finishing my new CD when yup, the dreaded "C"-word reared its ugly head. I was laid low by the evil twins cancer and chemo, and my third album fell by the wayside.
Two years later I'm back, and playin' catch-up. Most of the writing and recording is done, and like a lot of projects here on kickstarter, I need funding for post-production, what I call "the three Ms": mixing, mastering, and manufacturing the CDs.
Will you help me MIX, MASTER, & MAKE 'EM? You will be richly rewarded with magnificent swag for your involvement. Look at all this treasure:
There's my FIRST BASEMAN tee, after I chewed the sleeves off to keep cool in the So-Cal sun! And here's the preliminary artwork for my new WE ARE ALL BORN LUCKY tee:
So you can add some truly fab items to your CD rack and wardrobe by making a contribution. Not only that, I can become your Musical Slave for an evening, entrancing (and possibly hitting on) the guests at your soiree in an evening of Jay Spears music. And Christmas will never be the same if you get Santa Jay and my Musical Elves to come sing all my Xmas tunes in 3-part harmony at your Christmas party. And me write a song about you? Seriously???
As you know, it's all-or-nothin' with kickstarter, so if we don't raise our goal, we get zippo. Or squat. If we go OVER our goal, however, I'll get the best mixing/mastering/manufacturing combo your money can buy with the extra $$$.
So please, jump on my bandwagon with both feet and an open wallet. I will be forever grateful if you do.
