A new record. A new vision. I wanna cast my net wider.
I'M MAKING A NEW RECORD!
I am an independent musician about to record my 4th full-length record and I would love to do some things that I've never had the budget to do before like pay for my very first RADIO CAMPAIGN. In the past, every ounce of funds has gone towards just getting the record made and out. I've just never had the extra money to do some of the things that, really, are important to having a record find a wide listening audience. As well, many of the musicians and studios I've worked with over the years have given me a lot of time and energy on a dime because they have believed in my music. But this time, I need to push things farther. I'm gonna dream a little bigger.
And I can only do this with your help.
I have been saving for some of the basic studio costs I have but besides funding a radio campaign I am still in need of what it takes to package and promote this new record to its fullest.
On May 27th, I fly back to NYC to record once again at The Maid's Room. I wrote and recorded songs like "Build You Up" and "Lost and Found" at this studio. Here is a recent and really great article about the studio: http://www.sonicscoop.com/2012/05/13/secret-studio-the-maids-room-is-nycs-analog-recording-magnet/ I'll be there for 7 days or so hammering out 15+ songs. And I'll be posting some updates from the studio here so be on the lookout!
My music has been steadily gaining a wider audience over the last couple of years thanks to some terrific TV placements on shows like Flashpoint, Smallville and the mini-series Cyberbully. In support of my first Kickstarter, the producers at Flashpoint have sent over a bunch of signed DVDs that are part of my incentives package!
I have never been on a label. I am a totally independent songwriter who is completely dependent on YOU. In this campaign, even at the $1 level you will receive a complete digital download of the new record. Even at the smallest contribution, I want you to walk away with music in your ears. It's the best way--the only way, really-- I know how to thank you for bringing me along even this far and giving me the chance to make music.
Consider supporting my project and helping me to cast my net even wider. I am beyond excited about the songs on this new project and I think you will be too.
In celebration of this Kickstarter campaign I'm releasing my very first music video to my song Days Like This. The biggest thanks to photographer Michael Wilson and editor Matt Davis for helping me put this together.
Enjoy and please help spread the word! Every little bit counts!
