About this project
Hey everyone...welcome to my Kickstarter page!
I recently went back into the studio again to start recording a new record called...
"TILL AND MULE"
I worked with Grammy Award winning engineer Phil Harris in his studio and i was joined by a hevenly host of amazing players that i affectionately call..."THE BABY-DADDIES"!
- KENNY VAUGHAN (guitar) - guitarist for "Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives" & "The Kenny Vaughan Organ Trio"
- MIKE BUB (upright bass) - played bass for Del McCoury Band for 10+ years and currently plays with a host of others as well as his own band "18 South".
- JON RADFORD (drums) - from "Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors" and "The Kenny Vaughan Organ Trio".
- JASON GOFORTH (Lap Steel and Harp) - has played with a number of singer songwriters ..but currently out with "Over The Rhine"
- ODESSA JORGENSEN ((old time fiddle) - formerly of "The Biscuit Burners" & "Barefoot".
- SARAH SISKIND, ELIZABETH FOSTER, & SARAH MASEN DARK (on Backing Vocals) Each of them are amazing artists in their own right.
- TIM NETSCH (singer) -recorded an old fashioned vocal "duet" with yours truely.
- and a few more surprises...hopefully!
So where do you come in?
I need your help!
I am trying to raise $ 15,000
