About this project

THE T-SHIRT DESIGN - only 10 will be made
THE T-SHIRT DESIGN - only 10 will be made

This is the type of EPICness you can expect on the next album, but it will be songs with lyrics that tell a steampunk story:

I have released seven albums and my music has even won awards.

BUT...you may have never heard of me because I haven't made a professional music video. 

I am finishing my eighth album, and it is fantastic -- far surpassing any previous album.  It will need music videos. 

In the past, I have created intricate, fantastic props for my stage shows. I've created lavish graphics for my album covers....and that is as far as the visual portion went. 

There were some in-concert videos, but no music videos that professionally represented the cinematic soundscape that I create in my music.

And so, a music video needs to be made.

The more I can raise, the more videos I can make. And the better they will be.

I promise, these videos will be magnificent.

FAQ

  • Yes.

    The first song is "Swords For Hire" which will be on my next album and that is the song that will be in the music video I am making.

    The second one is an instrumental version of "Ray Gun" which will also be on the next album.

    The third piece is an orchestral piece called "Peter's Theme" which is on a soundtrack for a book titled "Tales of the Airship Neverland" authored by J.R. White. The soundtrack was released in May of 2012.

    The last one is a guitar composition called "Interlude" and it is on my album 'You Won't Believe This' which was released late 2009.
