Be a part of my story.
Thank you for visiting my Kickstarter!
I am thrilled to be embarking on this project, this adventure, with you all. It is the biggest project and, by far, the biggest commitment I have made to my music. And I am excited. And eager. And scared. But, in the end, it's the things that I don't do, the risks that I don't take that I regret.
So here it is. My debut album. Down To My Soul. And it really is. The 10 songs that will be included on the album tell the stories of my life. Of growing up in New Mexico. Of moving to the east coast. Of pursuing this crazy dream of mine that I can't sit down and talk to you about. But the words come out when I play. When I sing. That's how I communicate. That's how I relate to others. And myself.
Admittedly, I had no idea how much money and time goes into making an album. A LOT! But I've found a wonderful producer (Dan Siegler at Saturnfoot Studios) and we've worked together to figure out a way to produce a low(-er)-budget, great sounding album. $10,000 is the bare minimum it will take to get this done. That includes recording, mixing, and mastering. As you probably know, if I receive any less than $10,000, no credit cards will be charged and I will not get any money. And I will not be able to go forward. If, on the other, much finer hand, I receive more than $10,000, I will be able to get the best studio musicians, pay for lots of beautiful CDs, album artwork, maybe some promotion, etc.
I am grateful you are on this journey with me.
Thank you for your support. Thank for your kindness. It keeps me going.
