      It was great to hear of Carrsie's wedding and your being part of her day. One of my frequently played playlists has a bunch of both of your songs. Never guessed at connection.

      Hope you can make it to Philadelphia PA. some time. Check out Tin Angel (club just celebrated 20 yrs.) and WXPN / World Cafe, local alt. station and performance venue.

      Looking forward to new music.

      peace and love from Phila.

      Devon, I want to thank you for this chance. Your songs are melody driven and powerful. The chord progressions build up beautifully towards a harmonic Nirvana. I have only gotten this feeling listening to select tracks by John Lennon, Django Reinhardt, and Jerome Kern. It is rare that I find anyone who can stand against these, my choice composers, but you can, and vibrantly do so. I thank you, not only for the opportunity to support such a musically fluent artist, but for the chance to contribute to the proliferation of songs that breathe like anthems. Your voice is gold, not just the one from which you sing, but also the one that gives your music its soul. I'm on the edge of my seat for your release and find my only regret is that my current finances allowed only three dollars of support. Its not a just amount for the life of music that you're putting forth. If you're any bit as human as most people I know, I sincerely hope that all, if any insecurities in your life are abolished; you are courageous musician, and I can't wait to see as your musical journey extends boldly into the future.

      Devon, I have loved your music since you played sidestage at a Dave Matthews show I went to at the Riverfront Amphitheatre in St. Louis in the summer of 1998 (you signed your first record for me, and my shoe!) I am so pleased to see you're still making amazing music and it's my privilege to back your new album.

      Hi Devon,

      Thanks for the clarifications - I'm definitely upping the ante (and may do again).

      It's so exciting to see your total mount! I love your music and have sent this to my friends and look forward to hearing your next CD! Why don't you come to St. Louis, MO? Lots of great places to play.

      Bahhaj, your comment and camaraderie really made my day #2. Congrats on the project! The video was so mellow and real but also so inspiring. I'm off to even out your pledge -- grin -- and get some of your lovely music. Hope Chicago is cozy this morning.

      Hey, our Kickstarters were both mentioned over at saidthegramophone.com yesterday, and I just checked out yours and really liked what I heard. Would have liked to have been able to contribute more, but I'm really looking forward to getting your record! Good luck with it!

      Yeah! Mike's newest record Wild Lines is so good. Have you heard it, Marcus? I'm still so excited just by the fact that I'm working with him. The writing has been a blast. xo

      Creator Marcus Winchester on January 31, 2013

      So cool that you're doing this with Mike! I loved that low-key karaoke! You met him over the youtubes? Amazing.

    *ICH BIN EIN BERLINER* As some of you know, Paul and I spent part of last year living in Berlin. This special one-of-a-kind package -- available to only one backer -- contains souvenirs from our time in Berlin: an encouraging map I drew for Paul of all the restaurants I thought he would like (complete with illustrations), our only copy of the funny flyer Paul drew when we were looking for apartments, my German language CDs, and the keychain compass I bought on Hauptstra├če to help keep myself from getting lost while I was out on my bike.

    *MEMENTO* This idea came from Raina Rose. This is a one-off. Only one person gets it, because there will only be one. I'm making a scrapbook to document the making of this record. Pictures of the process, notes, lyrics, wine and coffee stains, doodles and takeout orders, all done up nice 'n pretty. Almost as good as being there. This is one-of-a-kind memorabilia. When all is said and done, I'll probably be sad to see it go! You also get a t-shirt, the new CD, the vinyl LP, plus all the downloads: demo bootleg, Paul & Dev duets, and the full DS discography.

    *THE CURRERI CD COLLECTION* We live in a very small apartment. We have a lot of CDs. For space's sake, we've decided to digitize our collection & find it a happy new home. I gotta say, it's an inspiring batch of music. The list of 640 discs can be seen here (and there's a photo below!): http://devonsproule.com/paulcdcollection.pdf If it could help fund this record, parting ways with all these beautiful liner notes, classic covers, and years of memories would be worth it. Media mail shipping in the US is included (I'll need some help if you're overseas, please!). Did I say 640? I meant 648, because of course this also includes my whole discography (new record included) on CD too. Plus all the digital stuff.
