original project description here:

Hello you awesome kickstarters!

So … I wrote the songs … now I feel a certain magnetism toward the recording studio. Document them. Give them a permanent place to live.

What I’d really like to do is give these songs a fighting chance to arrive at their fullest potential of existence.

With your help and support, this will be happening ... and fast! And you will be well rewarded for your support! (see special rewards to the right -->)

I’ve carefully budgeted this to keep the costs as low as possible and I’ll be employing many DIY tactics throughout the process … of course, the more funding the merrier so we can add some extra bells and whistles to the album and the artwork (littlerally!)

Thank you so much for reading, watching, listening, and most of all – supporting!!!
