Thank you for taking the time to check out my kickstarter campaign!
My new album, Commemoration, is a compilation of classical guitar pieces that I performed at ground zero during 9/11 Commemoration Ceremonies. The songs are in a wide variety of classical styles and are some of the most moving and expressive pieces that I play. A few tracks are very well known while others have never been recorded. Together, I hope they create a wonderful CD worth listening to time and again.
The CD is already recorded and now I need your help to cover the costs of studio time ($2500), mixing and mastering ($1500), licensing fees ($1000), and CD production ($1000). If I don't reach my goal of $6000, I wont receive any of the funds and your money will be refunded in full. I plan to have the album ready for distribution by September 1st. Please check out some music samples below and the rewards on the right column of this page. Any contributions will be greatly appreciated!
If I reach my goal, 10% of the proceeds will go to the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund. http://www.vcf.gov/
