I'm releasing my eighth CD this summer. The goal is to have it ready before my major birthday. My first album, Pop Another Cork, was also squeezed out just days before an earlier landmark birthday twenty years ago!

I've set a very low goal  for this project, because Kickstarter has an all-or-nothing policy, and I don't want to fall short. My expenses are really more around $2,500 over two years, so please feel free to contribute past the low goal set.

Risks and challenges

Once I make something public, I follow through. I have started many projects that were never finished, but I didn't tell anyone. If I'm talking about it publicly, that means it's already mostly done. That's just how I roll.
