Funded! This project was successfully funded on June 17, 2011.


Karl's highly anticipated solo record is so close to being completed. He's turning to YOU to help him make his dream a reality!

Hey everyone,

Many of you will know me from my band, Misery Signals.  Chances are I've probably shook your hand, taken a photo, signed any and everything strange you could throw at me (Drivers Licenses and School ID's are a personal favorite) all with a smile on my face.  Making new friends is what I love the most about touring, and now it's time to turn to these friends that have supported myself, and my band, throughout the years:

My solo record (titled: Call & Response) is nearly complete, but it's time I face facts.  I'm going to need your help in order to finish it!  

Being the only member in a band means that rather than splitting expenses 3....4....even 5 ways, I've had to finance this project entirely on my own.  Plane tickets, equipment, studio time, etc. have left me completely broke, and in turn has left the album almost hanging in a state of limbo.  So here I am, turning to Kickstarter in an attempt to help raise the remainder of the money I will need to finish mixing/mastering the record and get it out for you all to enjoy ASAP! 

In appreciation for your support with this project, I’m making some things available for the very first time exclusively to you. On the right hand side of this page you can see all the levels of donation and the gifts available to people who pitch in. There’s something for everyone whether you give a $1 or $1,000. All of it helps and all of it is greatly appreciated.

To protect you from giving money to projects that never get made, is an all or nothing proposition. If I don’t reach my fundraising goal of $2,500 you don’t get charged a dime.

So thank you all for taking the time to check this project out and hopefully together we can make this record finally happen!!!
