About this project

You probably know that nonbelievers are the new black. We’re talking secular humanists, hard-core atheists, agnostics, ag-curious, backsliders, people who don't identify with any "-ist" or "-ism" whatsoever, and people who just find themselves saying, “Uh, wait a minute,” a lot. We deserve a fun & exciting concept album. We’re actually pretty gosh darn decent people, it turns out.

Songs For Nonbelievers will make you shout YES like you do when somebody finally says something you’ve been thinking, out loud. There are kickass musicians lined up: Marlon Grace, John McDuffie, Gary Stockdale. There are songs you’ll be jumping to, songs you’ll ruminate on, and songs you’ll wail along with, even if you’re sober. There are zombie saints, probability theory, glossolalia, the ACLU and a reminder about the importance of buying designer shoes for the Rapture. I had a blast writing this stuff and I can’t wait to get it into a studio. I guarantee that every single dollar you toss into this hat will be assigned a task, put to work immediately, and deeply, deeply appreciated. Also guaranteed: these songs will make you laugh, unless you’re the Pope.

Thanks!

Cyn

ps   If a sentient, walking God shows up midway through the recording of this album, I will bite the bullet and personally return your every dollar. Not that you’ll need it, at that point, but it’s the principle of the thing.
