I don't believe in the starving artist mentality. If you really want to do something creative in your life, go after it and make it happen.

A LITTLE HISTORY
Since moving to NYC in 2001, I've released three independent albums. The most recent, "Let the Waves Come in Threes," spins on over 100 radio stations nationwide and was awarded #1 airplay and Top Album of 2009 on WVIA. I've toured throughout the Northeast and as far as Los Angeles, London and Stockholm and shared the stage with acclaimed artists including Lucy Kaplansky and Ellis Paul. But more importantly, I've been honing my craft, expanding the types of songs I can write, learning a great deal about the piano and my voice, and getting to know YOU, my audience.

NEW ALBUM
It's time for a new album! And with your help, I can get my music out to you much faster (compared with the three years it took to make Let the Waves). Below you will see my budget. Over the coming weeks, I'll be taking you behind the scenes at the studio - sharing words, music and arrangements for the new songs. I hope you'll dig deep and support our work, and in return we are offering some terrific thank you rewards (look to your right to see!).

A NOTE ABOUT KICKSTARTER: We will only receive funds (and you will only be charged for your donation) if we reach our minimum goal. It's okay to exceed the goal, but when the clock strikes midnight (New Year's 2011) if we haven't met the minimum, no money will be transacted. Time is ticking...thanks so much!
