Chemistry available soon!!!

Hello everyone. I hope you're all having a good time getting ready for Christmas and the New Year. Just wanted to let you know that my CD is in production now and I've been told that it will be finished before Christmas. I'm not sure when exactly I'll have it, but they say the 28th at the latest - shipping this time of year is a pain. Here's where I need your help. For all of the local people that I know, we'll set up a meeting somewhere and I'll get you your CD. Anyone who doesn't live around Baton Rouge, I need you to send me your address. Please send it to

I'll get these out to you as soon as I get them because I couldn't have done it without you all! Thanks so much. I'm really excited to see the finished product and for all of you to hear it. I hope you all have a good holiday season...and that you finally get to listen to some Chemistry!!!

Thank You So Much!!!

Hey guys. Just wanted to thank you all again for helping me with this project. I'll have access to your pledges in about a week and can then start getting everything ready for the release. I'm estimating that the CD will be officially released around December. I know that's still a ways away, but I plan on sending the CDs out to you as soon as I get them. That's right, you'll get yours before everyone else. Don't you feel important? You are. Thanks again for all of your help!

WE DID IT!!!!!!!

I just wanted to let you all know that we have reached the goal!!! I can't believe it actually happened. It wouldn't have even been a possibility without each and every one of you. A lot of you did a bunch of free PR work for me and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. Now I can spend my time coming up with a concept for packaging and artwork instead of constantly checking my e-mail for new pledges...not that I was doing that or anything. Remember, people can still pledge (I guess we can call it pre-order now?) towards my CD. Feel free to pass on the link. Thank you all SOOOOOO much for your help!

The Final Push

Hey everyone. We're so close to reaching the goal. As of today, we only need $325 in pledges. I can't believe this is actually going to happen. I can't tell you how much your help means to me. Help me make the final push towards the goal by spreading the word to anyone who might be interested in this project. Some of you already have been telling others and I really appreciate it. Hopefully the next update will be to tell you that we made the goal! Thanks for your support.

The Halfway Point

Hello everyone. Just wanted to keep you guys updated on the progress of our little fund raiser. We're at the halfway point of my kickstarter and are in very good shape. With 30 days to go, we're at nearly 75% of the goal! We need to raise $555 to reach $2,000. I'm very optimistic at this point but I still need a little more help to get there. I'm friends with most of you on facebook. Please share all of the links to my kickstarter page that I've been sharing periodically. We won't get to $2,000 unless people know about the project and what it's about. Some of you have already been passing the link on to others and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. Please keep it up! I know you will enjoy this music as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you all for your support!
