I will be recording the first half of my new album during the months of May and June of this year. After my summer tour, I will finish the remainder of the album in the fall once I return to Nova Scotia. I have recruited numerous local musicians to help me with this project and I am very excited to be recording with a full band!

Here's how the funds will be allocated:

$800 - Recording/mixing

$500 - Mastering

$500 - Production costs

$200 - Artwork, extra musicians

*For t-shirts and/or undies, once the project is finished, you can specify what size/color/style you would like! I am able to do custom orders as well (onesies/aprons, etc) but t-shirts and undies are easiest and the most cost-efficient for me to produce.

*For lessons, piano tuning and/or a concert, we can arrange a time for me to stop by your house on one of my upcoming cross-country tours!

Risks and challenges

Although my plan is to have the full album finished for Christmas 2015, other situations in life can arise unexpectedly, which may delay the process into next year. But as this has been a dream of mine for many years, you can rest assured that I WILL finish this project!
