    A BIG THANK YOU

    Thanks for supporting this project! No perks here, but my deepest thanks, and a high-five. Think of it this way: you just gave $1 and now you're going to get 52 world-class songs in the next year. That's called making the money work for you, folks.

    MOUNT VALOR GREETING CARDS

    Equally elegant and earthy. These custom greeting cards will include lyric-quotes on the front. Don't worry, I'll only put nice positive lyrics on these, not ones that say "...the April fields you dug will soon become your grave." No one wants to get cards in the mail that say that.

    HANDWRITTEN LYRIC SHEET

    I'll handwrite the lyrics from one of my 52 songs and send it to you. Then you have to wait in suspense for the particular week when your song is released. But you'll feel really cool since you'll be able to sing along right away, and feeling cool is obviously what drives humanity towards greatness. Or something like that.

    CUSTOM SONG JUST FOR YOU

    Put me to the test - let's make a song! I can write a song about your favorite cat, an anniversary, or what really happened with the JFK cover-up. Or maybe you need some indie-folk nursery rhymes to play for your kids. Or you just have a favorite song you'd like me to cover and record exclusively for you. Whatever it is, let's make it happen!

    +T-SHIRTS
    (For up to 20 guests)

    This would just be a blast of a night. Poetry, singing, storytelling, and more. I would love to share my heart, throw out new perspectives, challenge our cultural views, and have some laughs along the way. Plus, your guests will depart with a book, CDs, and a T-shirt. You'd be like a modern day Gatsby, the best party-thrower in town. Preferably a house with a piano is best; I'll bring the guitar and mandolin. *Travel not included.
