About

I am recording the third album under the band name I use, Never Say Die. The name of the album is Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know. I started recording the album about a year ago. I had expected it to be finished by this point, but I got laid off from my job and money got tight so I couldn't afford to keep going to the recording studio to finish it. I have decided that now is finally the time to raise the money to get it completed and released.

Originally it was going to just be a 6-8 song EP, but I have been writing some new songs in the intervening months that I really want to get out there so I will be expanding it to a full length album. While it won't take much to finish the songs I had already started working on, I will need to record the new songs from scratch. The music is mostly punk rock with a few other styles such as Irish music and ska mixed in. I'll be recording it at KMH Studios in Lusby, MD. This is the studio I recorded the first 2 Never Say Die albums, as well as a lot of other music over the years.

I funded the last album, Convictions & Addictions, through Kickstarter and found it to be a great process. I was able to raise the money I needed to finish the album and get my music out there to new people that I would not have reached otherwise. I'm hoping for even more success this time. I feel really good about this group of songs and am excited to get them out in the world. With your help this can be the best Never Say Die album yet!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge will be finishing on time. I work 2 jobs and am recording most of the instruments myself so that always creates the potential for delay. I have a good portion of everything recorded already so I don't envision it being any real problem.

    Personalized Song

    Ever wanted a song recorded just for you? Here's your chance to make that dream a reality. You can choose to have me write and record an original song for you about any subject you want or you can choose a cover song that I'll record for you. You'll be the only person that has a copy of this unless you choose to have me share it with the world. If it's an original song you want and you don't want it shared, I reserve the right to use the music in the future if I come up with a good hook. And if you do want it shared, there's a chance it may end up as on the album itself! You'll also get the sticker, button, cd's & t-shirt and the new album emailed to you.

    Live Show

    Choose this and get the sticker, button, cd's, t-shirt, new album email and any other stuff I can find that might be cool. Oh yeah, I'll also come play a live show for you. You'll even get to help choose the set list. We'll film the show and throw it up online for the world to share. There are a few stipulations. If this at your home you'll have to have a space where all the gear can be set up. If it's at another venue you will be responsible for booking it. If you want the show to be more than a few hours drive from where I live in Germantown, MD, you may have to cover travel expenses. Please contact me to work out scheduling.
