I feel like my whole life has been leading up to this moment.
This year, with the help of a few good friends, I found the motivation to face my fears, get my butt in gear and finally make my long-time dream come true.
It's time to release my first album.
This album will be all original music, written with some amazing cowriters: award-winning songwriter Larry Bastian (Garth Brooks' Rodeo, Unanswered Prayers, Man Against Machine), Karyn Thurston, my grandpa Vince Pasion, and Bryan Henderson. There's a ton of good music already written, but we want to take these songs into the studio and make this into a real project - which is where you come in.
Recording an album is an expensive process, and I can't do it on my own. I'll need $9000 dollars to make my first album a reality. Every dollar raised will go toward the production of a high quality project that I can't wait to share with you!
The budget includes:
Studio Musicians - I have some world class musicians that have agreed to record this album with me. This is costly, but adds a musicality to the project that is invaluable.
Producer fees - Nate McGuigan with NTM Production is going to be producing this album. He's a friend, and a phenomenal mixing engineer and producer. I'm lucky to have him on board.

Be sure to check out the incentives listed in the column on the right side of your screen. I've created them to make it easy (and fun!) to be a part of this project. I'm asking you to get involved on the ground level here. If you like what you hear, please support this project. I am so proud of the work we've done so far on this album - these songs are some of my best work, and I am excited for you to hear and own them. I hope you will love them as much as I do. No matter how much or how little you can give, your support is valued and SO helpful.
Here's the thing with Kickstarter - if I do not raise all $9000 dollars, you will get your money back, and I will receive nothing. The fate of this project is completely in your hands! Please share this with friends and family that you believe would like the music.
I'm asking you to come partner with me. Not only do you get the opportunity to help create great music, you're making my life long dream come true. And for that, I thank you!
Risks and challenges
Going into studio can be complicated. I've been working really hard to make sure that things are in order, from writers' credits to pre-work like booking studios, and finding musicians and mixing and mastering engineers. As you know, with any complicated project, unforeseen things can come up. Your support will help me to be able to meet these challenges as they come and push through them to finish this project that has been years in the making.
My album is scheduled to launch in late Sept. I will make fulfilling my incentives top priority, and keep you informed about any challenges, victories, and fun moments along the way. I consider supporters of this project my main supporters, so it's my goal to take care of you and make this a fun process!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
