My friend Andy Stack had an idea to showcase various Artists in his production studio, and he wanted to start with me! His vision was to do a live studio recording, as well as a video. My band had been performing a Booker T arrangement of a Beatles medley from Abbey road for a couple years and Andy wanted to start there! In my trio, I usually play Bass with my left hand on the Hammond Organ, but since we were paying tribute to Booker T & the MG's, we wanted that Donald "Duck" Dunn Fender P bass sound. Thankfully Andy is also an excellent bass player! With my longtime bandmate Chris Vitarello on guitar and David Tedeschi on drums (plus me on Hammond Organ,) we hit the studio and captured a few really special and super groovy live performances. We also recorded one of my original tunes "Funky Monkey" that I had previously released on The Eel. We had a blast recording these songs! I'm doing this fundraiser to cover the costs of making this music available to you! We all played for free, and Andy provided the studio and mixed the tracks for us gratis. Miles Steuding took the photo of me in San Francisco, and he is donating his time doing the graphic design as well (the above photo will be the album cover!)  We decided it would be super groovy to have the tracks mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London England. That came to about $375, plus $250 in licensing fees, $55 for copyrighting the sound recordings and another $70 for digital distribution costs. That comes to roughly $750, so that's our goal! Please consider helping us meet our goal so we can continue making music for you! Hope to see you at a show soon as well! Peace and love, Jeremy

Risks and challenges

The music business is in constant flux, especially in the last 20 years. With digital distribution, the content makers (musicians, artists, writers, etc,) can create and distribute to our fans directly, without needing a record company to cover the costs. That's a positive change, but it also means we don't have a record company to COVER THE COSTS haha. So thankfully there are options for that as well. Utilizing Kickstarter's crowdfunding resources, we can appeal directly to you, the content consumer, and deliver our music straight into your earholes! This costs us money, so hopefully you will decide to support living artists (such as me, myself, I'M ALIVE!!! yay) so we/I all of us can continue to make music and enjoy the experience together! Thanks so much!!
