About this project

This is my story and why this album needs to happen:

I've been on a pretty incredible journey this past year. I recently found my Dad through a secret mission I went on to find the truth. I grew up believing my "real" Dad wanted nothing to do with me, and that was why he remained absent from my life. But last year I gained the courage to find out exactly why. Thanks to the power of the internet and modern DNA testing, I discovered the guy I thought was my dad... wasn't.  

So with a head-full of questions I set off on a hunt. At first to no avail. But  about a month later, and much soul-searching, I received a call from my mom who told me my dad "might" be John Beland. She went on to tell me of the night of my conception, which included a little too much alcohol and free-love, and the story unraveled that my Dad never even knew of my existence...he was a traveling musician...and well it WAS the 70's. :) So we met. It was the most epic thing I've ever experienced. We look a ton alike. Sound a lot alike. And now for the first time ever you will hear an album with both of us together. I'm super excited.

We've already begun tracking in the studio. I am working with a top of the line engineer/producer who has the experience as well as the creativity, recording in obscure places such as cathedrals or gigantic bathrooms to capture natural acoustics as well as in the home set-up. The songs are ready. The momentum is at full speed. 

No looking back.

The clock is ticking.. 

and we are depending on YOU to help make this dream a reality. 

Thank you so so much.
