About this project

Good Meat Makes Gravy is an album that conveys optimism while acknowledging the realities of everyday life. I wrote this short collection of songs to express my appreciation for different musical genres while displaying a variety of styles and influences. Five words describe my new style of singing and melodic rhyming: Beautiful Soul for the People.

My good friends Goon Rock and Shane Eli handle the production on the album. Super-producer Goon Rock’s  “Party Rock Anthem” for LMFAO http://tinyurl.com/3bobb3q held at #1 for six weeks on Billboard’s Top 100 chart. Goon’s ability to create soulful dance music is an incredible gift. Shane Eli is a creative force on the rise. In the past year, Shane created the music score for a foreign film, released a solo hip-hop album and produced a song for the legendary band Earth, Wind & Fire.

WOW! The project is going to sound awesome, right? That’s not enough. Music enthusiasts today expect more than just great songs. High- quality, engaging video content can mean the difference between success and failure in the music industry.  With this in mind, I have the idea to create a short film based on Good Meat Makes Gravy.

This will be an AWESOME film. A movie created around an album? So dope! I’m pumped. I NEED YOUR HELP. There are considerable costs associated with recording, mixing and mastering an album. In addition, I'm facing big post-production and editing expenses on the film. On top of that, I hope to raise enough money to hire a professional publicist. 

Please give whatever you can to help make this vision a reality. I will forever appreciate you, and you'll receive some really cool rewards in return. Have your copy of the album and film before everyone else!  

This album/film will make you laugh, cry, hope and feel. I still believe in the power of unity; thank you for believing in me.
