I was born in 1983. This will be my very first full-length album & it'll be about my years in this great state thus far. Thanks a ton.

"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:

FREE MUSIC!

"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.
