We made it! We made it! We made it!

Wow, I still can't believe it. Thanks, everyone so much for your pledges and your efforts to spread the word. Here's a quick thank you video for you all. 

But for now, enough with the talk. Let's make an album!

    A physical copy of the record, a limited-edition t-shirt, handwritten lyrics and a story about the song of your choice, and a hand-painted nylon-string acoustic guitar with one-of-a-kind artwork depicting themes from the album. My painting style is somewhere between Fernando Llort (look him up!) and my toddler's doodles :). A real conversation piece.

    A physical copy of the record, a limited-edition t-shirt, handwritten lyrics and a story about the song of your choice, and a one-minute original song written and recorded live with myself on vocals and guitar. We'll have to become friends and stuff, 'cause you'll be giving me direction as to what to write about. It'll be fun!

    A live music event for you and your friends and family. It can take place at a location of your choosing (airfare and accommodations for 2 would have to be covered if not within 500 miles of Salt Lake City, UT). I will play live versions of all of the songs on the record, including your own one-minute song. All of your guests (up to 30) will receive a copy of the album.

    If you love my music enough to fund the whole record, you'll get the works. A live music event at a location of your choosing (airfare and accommodations for 2 would have to be covered if not within 500 miles of Salt Lake City, UT). All guests receive a copy of the album. A one-minute song written just for you. A beautiful hard-bound photo and text journal about the making of the album, and... ...my very own Contreras Spanish guitar, hand-painted to depict themes and lyrics from the album. I bought it in Madrid in 2005 and have played it almost every day since. It is the most definitive physical part of this record, and it will be yours, along with my gratitude and friendship.
