Hello, friends! It's been too long since I put out a CD, so let's fix that. My next CD is coming out in April, and will be called "Addressed to the Stars". I no longer actively sell CDs, but I'm offering a preorder a limited run of physical copies through this Kickstarter campaign. 

This album came together quite differently for me. Normally, I write 12ish similar songs, then assemble them into a CD, then write 12ish more, make another CD, etc. This time around I decided to focus on writing the best individual songs I could write, without regard to how well they fit together. The result was a massive collection of 36 songs I've written since my last album, which let me cherry pick a really great collection of tracks. Some have already been released as demos, others are brand new, never-before-heard songs. 

It's an oddly upbeat CD for me. I'm also working on another CD, and was going to release them together, but I didn't feel like it was quite ready. Anyone pledging for a physical CD will also get a digital copy of an early version of the other CD, which is much, much darker. :) 

The physical CDs here will be professionally manufactured, packaged in sexy Digipak containers. There are some fun rewards that you can choose from, as well. Thanks a million for your support!

(Technical Difficulties music: Kevin MacLeod)

Risks and challenges

The CD is 99% done, and I've got a manufacturer lined up. The main risk is me getting hit by a bus in the next month. I'll make sure to use the appropriate crosswalks.
