About this project
"1983" is a record that I've had in mind since I first started seriously writing and recording. It will be my first full-length record and will contain ten songs that will serve to represent myself in Texas from 1983 until now. It is about the state I live in, the relationships I've made, and the people I love. The pledges you make will go directly towards the recording and production of this record and absolutely nothing else. On a side note, I am only asking your help to fund half of this record. Hopefully this shows you that I am as invested in this project as I'd like you to be.
I believe in honesty and hard work.
With your help, I'm hoping we can make a great record together. Thank you very much for your time... And hey, you can have my previous two EPs totally free just for stopping by:
"1983" will be recorded at Cedar Creek Recording in Austin, Texas alongside great people who also happen to be great musicians. It will be produced by John Ross Silva & engineered by Kevin Szymanski - two true pros.
PS: Huge thanks to Ryan Hargrave for whipping together the above video for me. Really appreciate it, man.
