About this project

Hi Friends! 

I am very excited to announce that I have not one but two albums in the works. "Poison Honey" will be my fourth album, in a similar dreamy melancholy rock vein as my last two albums "Wicked Ways" and "Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt" but with some new twists and turns. If you enjoyed those albums you are going to love "Poison Honey". I truly believe that the songs I'll be recording are my best to date!

In addition to "Poison Honey"  I will also be recording a second, all acoustic album, for all my purist friends out there. It's no secret that I am more of a rocker at heart and love lush elaborate production. There will be plenty of that on "Poison Honey" but this album is especially for those of you who have expressed a wish for some more stripped down recordings. The title "Guitars Trying to be Pianos" is a play on some Tori Amos lyrics from one of my favorite songs of hers "Northern Lad".

So let's make this happen!  My last last album came out in 2008, which is pretty nutty. I procrastinated for almost 10 years because I felt overwhelmed by the thought of going it alone.  (As opposed to my previous albums which were funded by labels) But the truth is, I am not alone at all. I have all of you and with your support these albums will finally come to life!

PS- All the reward names are based on songs from some of my favorite artists. Guess them all (without googling, I trust you) and you'll get a special mystery bonus gift with your reward!

A few songs that will be going on the album;

 

Here's what your contributions will go towards;

Musicians- bass, drums, multiple guitars, keys, string quartet, lap steel guitar and more

Engineers and Programmers 

Studio Time

Mixing and Mastering

If I am lucky enough to exceed my goal it wold be great to have some funds for the following as well;

Artwork- (CD layout, photography, etc)  

CD Manufacturing

Tour support

Promotion

T-shirts, posters and other merchandise

Here's a sneak peek at some of the rewards!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge of getting this album together will be the financial aspect. My first album, which involved minimal production, cost over $20,000. Closer to $30,000 with cd manufacturing and artwork. The albums I made with record labels had significantly higher budgets and much more complex production. That said, the world of music has come a long way in terms of technology since I put out my last album. There are many ways to cut corners and be more cost effective. If I am able to surpass my goal of $8000 it will help things to move along more quickly and hopefully provide for some of the luxuries I've been lucky enough to indulge on past recordings. Like string quartets. God, do I love a good string quartet!
