About

It's a simple question - well, actually a series of several very simple questions: would you like some new music from me? Would you like to hear an un-produced, stripped down, solo, electric, live album? Or would you like a fully produced, fancy, beautiful, full length, studio album? Or, would you like both? This is the project that lets you decide the answer to those questions.

Here's the story:

I have been kicking around ideas in my head for over a year now, champing at the bit to record another full length album, as it's been over SIX YEARS since I've released one of those. I've had a lot of fun over the last few years, recording and releasing my music more frequently (with EPs, not full length albums), working with different producers to get different sounds, meeting new people around Nashville, and growing further as a writer and singer. It's been a great few years, during which I recorded and released the four aforementioned EPs, the last three of which (referred to as The Trilogy), I raised support for through generous fans like you on a previous Kickstarter campaign! I've worked with awesome folks, toured around the country in support of those projects, and found new friends, fans and supporters along the way. 

Ever since finishing up The Trilogy project in 2012, I've had a strong desire to record another full length album. I feel like it's time- like the season of EPs is over. And I've been wanting to do something different, too. I'd like to set up a mic in front of me, and a mic in front of my electric guitar, and sing these new songs live, with as little re-do's and overdubbing as possible. I think that sounds like great fun.

But, since it's my first full length album in SIX YEARS, I also have a strong desire to get into a great studio with a great producer and some great musicians and turn out an awesomely polished piece of work.

I have been torn between these two desires for quite some time, trying to determine the best course of action. Then, washing dishes at home one day, I had the thought- Could I do both?! And then I thought, why not try? So here we are. I have a lot of new songs and I want to record them. There might be some overlap, if particular songs lend themselves to both stripped down and produced versions, but for the most part they will be two separate full length albums with different songs- put together as a double album.

The goal of $16,000 is the budget- It includes recording costs for both albums, mixing and mastering fees, album artwork, CD duplication, and reward fulfillment costs. Anything we raise beyond the goal will be put to good use for press campaigns and promotional costs. So, check out all the rewards to the right, see if this is something you're excited about being a part of, and pick the reward package you like the most! Thanks for checking this project out, you're time and attention are appreciated.

**VINYL REWARD DETAILS: On several levels you will see the "limited edition vinyl compilation album" listed- this is a a 12" vinyl record, each copy is numbered and signed. It is a compilation album of my favorite songs from the EP Trilogy, here is the track listing:

Side A- 1. Little Bit, 2. All My Love, 3. I'm the Moon, 4. Telephone Wire

Side B- 1. The Reason Why, 2. Just Like Him 3. To the Swift, 4. O Black River

The vinyl! It's green.
The vinyl! It's green.

Hearing these songs on vinyl is really special. It gives them an old, "lived in" feel. Each copy will be numbered and autographed, and there are only 300 in existence, so get 'em while they're hot.

Risks and challenges

The estimated completion date is just that, an estimate! It depends on reaching funding of course, and then on booking studio time and producer and musician schedules! Summer of 2014 is my best guess of completion date if everything goes as planned, but sometimes they don't, as I'm sure you are aware, so I appreciate your understanding in that regard! But I promise I will do my best to keep the ball constantly rolling and make every effort on my end to fulfill each reward in a timely manner, and to keep you updated on the progress so you know what is going on and when to expect your rewards!
