I am raising funds to record my album in a professional studio, because I cannot afford to do this on my own.
I am an independent musician who would like to record my songs using high quality studio equipment which I cannot afford to buy on my own.
I grew up in the deserts & foothills of California, cutting my teeth on jazz, blues, old country, bluegrass, and classical music. I played mostly in school bands and talked about getting bands together with my friends, but that never really panned out for me. In the early 2000's I struck out on my own, playing tiny shows in tiny venues (or just outside) and having tiny amounts of local success.
I then abruptly left the music scene with nary a farewell.
I ran away and hid from the world - I stopped playing music altogether. I longed to play music, but I could not find inspiration. I wanted to write but I was afraid to share my true emotions through songwriting. I stopped feeling my emotions and just shelved them away. It worked for a time, but after seven years, I could no longer hide.
I have reemerged in the forests of the north, plucking my strings and tickling my keys to the wind.
The songs on this album are Me, written from my heart and sung from my soul. One can follow my emotional and mental growth over the course of the year it took me to recognize my personal obstacles and to overcome them - the year it took me to Transform.
I appreciate any assistance you can give me on this endeavor, your support will allow me another transformation: from hobby musician to serious musician.

Thank you for your time.
Take care of yourself, friend, you're the only one who can change the world.
