THE STORY OF HONEY, THE ALBUM

This project has been my baby for over 5  years. A lot of these songs tell my personal stories - familiar stories like meeting the guy (or girl), taking him (or her) home, falling in love, moving in together, getting bored, cheating, breaking up and all the little ins and outs in between.  I want to be the champion for all the girls like me and I want to get inside listeners' hearts. These are songs to sing in the mirror to.

When I first began making this record, I simultaneously got my first world tour singing with the Brand New Heavies (and later went on to sing lead.) From there my touring took off, working with musical luminaries such as Roberta Flack, Joss Stone and Macy Gray, but progress on my own album became stagnant. Small successes cropped up here and there, including being signed to Macy Gray's label,  "Moonslice Records and Tapes".  Despite the tremendous love, this arrangement became yet another story of frustration.  I'm finally ready to risk it all on my own and I need your help.

Being constantly on the road, sometimes hitting ten countries in a single month, has caused me to grow exponentially as a writer and a singer.  Many of the songs I originally planned to put on this album have been traded for newer songs that reflect my growth and offer a deeper experience. I have partnered with some of the most talented writers and producers in the world.  In spite of all the obstacles, the music is finally here.

But what's the use of a great record with no audience to cherish it? I want to give this project legs. It must be on every barbershop's counter, playing in boutique's speakers everywhere and creating the atmosphere in hotels, restaurants and clothing stores worldwide.  With the advent of the internet, music these days is wonderfully accessible but decidedly hard to find support for.  Your contributions will allow the project to get reviewed and promoted in blogs and magazines.  With your help, I'll be able to shoot videos for internet and television, hire a designer for my packaging and secure the help of a phenomenal team to help promote the music and book and manage the tour

Come, join the HONEY MOVEMENT and become a part of a family who loves strong stories, perfect harmonies, heavy dancing, and of course, great music. Thank you in advance for your generosity and love. I couldn't do it without you. 

Risks and challenges

Now, what I fear most, is that I will spend all this money on promotion but my videos won't get airtime, and my songs won't get played. The reason I've built PR into the budget is to ensure that this risk lessens, and the boundaries for success and joy expand. I believe in this music. I have to. I hope the music will touch peoples' hearts, put a little boogie in their morning commute, and garner play and support from a wide variety of audiences. Step by step, we build the dream.
