Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter page! Please consider backing this project and telling your friends about it. THANK YOU!

What is this project about?

I have recorded a number of albums, but this is my debut solo album and I am so excited about it! This project will give me the chance to get into the studio and record a group of songs with a full band. I'll be recording a number of songs that I've written over the last couple of years as well as a couple of brand new songs. Once the songs are recorded, I'll be able to release the project on CD and through iTunes (and other sites)... At that point the new goal will be to promote the album and let even more people here the music!

Besides donating, how can I help?

We would be grateful if you would tell your friends about this project. I would love to see the number of "Backers" to this project to keep going up. The number of backers is just as important as the amount of money we raise since we really want to let people be a part in this project. The more the merrier!

120 Backers Challenge (NEW):

If we can reach 120 backers by the end of the campaign (8/9/12 at 7:00pm Pacific time), we will record and release another song in addition to the album and give a free copy to each and every person who backed the campaign!
