Right now, i am in the process of putting everything i own into storage.  Actually, by the time you read this I will probably in my car...road trippin east with my guitars and a suitcase. Im on a journey to write and record my dream record and i need your help!! Equipment, studio time, producers, musicians, promo, merch...mixing/mastering?!AHHH!! I think Aloe Blacc said it best, 'i need a dollar, dollar...a dollar is what i neeeeed! hey hey' haha!! umm......seriously though...lol

For those of you that have been following my career....you know that this has been a long time in the making!! I've been a quarterfinalist on two of the BEST singing competitions (in my opinion) ever to be on TV!! I have to admit, this last elimination still stings.  Although I understand the thought process behind my departure, it hurt because I dedicated my appearance on the show to all of you...and when it got down to it, you didnt even get a chance to vote.  Such a bummer!! (yup...still stings)

Well....needless to say.....ive got a lot to write about!!! I've been spending my time putting material together and preparing to put this story to music.  This record is a culmination of all my years of hard work, success and failure, and will come straight from my heart!! This 33 day kickstarter project...if we are successful...will make my life long dream come true.

$33K may seem like a lot of $$$...cause well...it is!! To be honest though, it may be JUST ENOUGH to make the kind of album I'm going for.  The kind of record that will compete on ANY level in today's musical world. Major labels today typically spend around $200,000 just recording the album--I'm planning to work with 15% of that, and still cover my artwork, photography etc...im also hoping to have enough at the end to mix and master which is really expensive and priced per song. WHY $33,300? When i looked at my profile, i couldnt help but think something was missing.

The number 333 has been following me since the beginning of the beginning...it just seemed right...and dont worry ;) that $300 is on me (which is actually kind've awesome cuz i want one of those guitar string bracelets!!! DAD! i need three hundred bucks! hahaha)

 If I surpass my goal, well, the record just gets better and better, I get to cut less corners, and  can really focus on promoting this thing and getting it out there. You're obviously free to donate more than the specified amount for any given promotional package, but just as important is the tweeting, facebooking, emailing, and telling all your friends, family, neighbors and complete strangers about this campaign! 

This is really exciting for me because its a great way for me to connect more with all of you, by offering some exclusive and unique packages related to the new album. I will keep you up to date here as much as I can - everything from the progress, to the artwork, to the ideas and everything in between as the plans begin to take shape.  Who knows....some of my unreleased music from the past few years could pop up as incentive here at some point! (note to self: time to dig through the archives)

This is going to be so much fun!!!

I hope that you find the support pledges exciting, as I had fun dreaming them up!  And please...if you know anyone who is a fan of mine that may not see this online...tell them of our exciting new adventure!     

FAQ

  • i have so many international fans and i love you all!!! but...unfortunately...there will be a charge for international shipping as it costs extra to ship overseas.

    international backers please add $3 to your pledge for small items such as postcard / photo, $5 for physical copy album / dog tags, $10 for t-shirt / album artwork).
