Lester is done recording his album!

Posted by Lester Chambers & Alexis Ohanian (Creator)

We all recently met up in Silver Spring, MD for the Freedom to Connect conference. I spoke about this kickstarter project, then Lester & Dylan rocked the house afterward.

Attendees at the conference started a spontaneous fundraiser during the performance and generously donated $1850 to Lester via SweetRelief by the time his set ended. I got up on stage and was so inspired that I offered to match it there on the spot. We, the people, raised $3700 for Lester right there.

But I'm most excited to say that everything is on schedule for this kickstarter campaign! Lester has also been busy signing all of those special cowbells for backers who've contributed over $100. See the photos!

We're also finalize the art for t-shirts, which will ship along with everything else this April!

      This is awesome! And Lester looks so much happier now. Can't wait to hear the upcoming CD. I'm going to buy a bunch of copies and give them a presents to everyone I know!! All my love to Lester.

      Spontaneous fundraiser?! Wow, that's so great!

      Those are some very cool cowbells - I love the golden signature on it. Kind of makes me wish I'd gone for one of the cowbells. I'm sure those 137 backers that get one will be very happy.
