About this project
It won’t be long before I will be very pleased to present my first solo record. It is a full length, full band recording and for the last two years I have been pouring my heart, time and money into its creation. It is my great hope that with a little help I can move the album through the final steps of the process, and out into the world!
Breakfast Epiphanies is a collection of original songs that have evolved from solo numbers into their current incantations. It was recorded with a group of world class musicians live-off-the-floor, besides certain vocal redubs and extra awesomeness like church organ. It is a blend of many good things, including country, soul, and blues.
The goal of $3832.01 is based on costs for mixing: $750, mastering: $600, plastic-less manufacturing: $1682, and art and layout roughly: $800. And a penny for good luck.
Besides helping me actually pay for its completion, the idea is I can help you by sending your signed and numbered copies right away, along with bonuses! I will write you a song and record it for you, write you some poems… send along a mixtape of old, lost recordings, depending on how much you wish to donate. Each reward also includes a lucky penny from my prodigious lucky penny collection.
With Kickstarter, no money is taken from anyone's account until the funding goal is met. Therefore, I am asking you to please spread the word and feel free to forward this link on to your music-loving friends. It is also not a problem if the goal is surpassed! This could help pay for the 5% that kickstarter.com charges for the use of their marvelous platform and the 5% processing fee paid to Amazon :)
So here’s to music, and here’s to you! Thank you thank you thank you.
