My latest album is almost done! It's tentatively called "The Beautiful Machine", and it's sounding pretty ginchy. Some of the songs you've already heard, in the form of VideoSong singles I've been releasing over the past year and change. I've been hard at work polishing those songs, and there will also be about three brand new songs that you've never heard.

As you may already know, I've stopped selling physical CDs from my website, mostly because I'm lazy and I got tired of hiking to the post office a couple times a week. So this project is especially important, because this will be a limited printing based on how many people support this campaign, so it'll probably the only way you'll ever get to have a physical copy of it. 

Don't care much about the physical CDs? No problem, there are all sorts of other spiffy treats, including getting your name in the credits, a photo of me holding a hand-written thank you note, a delightfully random artifact from the recording process, a hand-written lyric sheet, a video shoutout, your own personalized #TinyTune, my entire discography on CD, and if you're feeling frisky, you can bring me to your living room to play a concert (which is pretty much the only way you'll ever get to see me play live, since I don't tour). 

Your support also helps me continue to dedicate my time toward making more music, buys recording equipment to make my music sound better, and makes me feel super-happy!

Risks and challenges

The album's almost done, and manufacturing CDs is easy, so we should be in business shortly. :)
