About this project

Recently, life inspired me to make an album, so I called some good friends and scheduled a rehearsal.  Lightning struck and we stumbled on a sound that is magic.  Without backing, I decided to go for it.  Now, with songs ready, I am asking for your support in making my first full length solo album.

Kickstarter is a platform that allows you to financially support artists and creators of all kinds and receive cool incentives.  Money pledged will be used to pay for musicians, recording, mixing, mastering, art and duplication.

However  -  I DO NOT RECEIVE ANY FUNDS PLEDGED UNLESS MY GOAL IS MET - by my preselected date "Feb 22nd" which is fast approaching.

Your contribution will help me share one of my deepest passions with you. 

Thanks for visiting my Kickstarter page and considering contributing  : )
