THE FIRST WEEK!

Big big thank you to everyone for helping to get this off the ground. Your support means the world to me. The first week’s almost up and we’re a quarter of the way to the goal! Great start. Just over three weeks left! 

I just added a new reward for a private house concert! Songs and talk! 

I’ve worked out a great deal and a tentative schedule with the studio I will be recording at. Super excited to be recording at Unison Studios in Los Angeles. Some good old friends will be involved and I’ve got a lot of cool ideas for the record and maybe a few guests.

In all the chaos of trying to figure out the best way to get the word out about the campaign, I guess I needed a break. I ended up with two new unexpected songs!

First song “The Guitar Looked So Pretty In Your Hands” is a little dark (and pretty). There is a funeral and a guitar and now a song.

Second song “Your Beautiful Life (Rose the Hitchhiker)" also a little dark. Wrote and recorded that one yesterday. That was fast. I’ve had an idea or a line that said something about Rose the Hitchhiker and her name “tattooed in a heart near a grave at the corner of his chest”. Or some thing like that. 

Both songs are up at https://soundcloud.com/garysunshine. Not so sure they will make this record but all are in the running at this point. I’ll be narrowing the list down now that I got these two new ones completed. I may be asking for some help with this soon.

Well that’s about it for now.

I could still use a whole lotta help spreading the word, so if you think of anyone, or anything that might help us get to the goal, please let me know.

Thank you all! 

Talk soon!
