About

 Hello, And thank you for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter.  It certainly has been a long and windy road to get to this point.  It's funny to think that almost 7 years ago I was still hitch-hiking the country playing my tunes from no name town to no name town.  Over the past few years I have been playing gigs all over Colorado and selling my demo CD. At first, as a perfectionist I was highly critical of my demo as all I heard were my mistakes. However, after selling approximately 3000, DIY CD's and getting amazing reactions from people I realized that there was a wide market for my music.  I knew it was time to get in the studio and produce my first full length album.  Other than my two beautiful children, performing these songs has been the driving force in my life. 

The best part about being a songwriter/performer isn't the praise or the attention.  The tastiest fruits of my labor are the small interactions or messages I receive when someone describes to me how my songs lifted them up or changed their perspective in a time of need.  Over the years I have had the pleasure of receiving countless messages, emails, texts from people who's lives I was able to touch on a level I didn't even know possible. Music is medicine and I want to spread the love and inspire change as much as I can. I have put all the puzzle pieces in place to make a wonderful first record.  Over the past few months I have been networking with the studios, musicians that will be on the album and several outlets for my music such as Pandora and I-tunes. We are also creating an interview process for a potential manager. The one thing missing is YOU and your generous and extremely appreciated donation.  My goal is to create an uplifting high quality record to catapult me into a full fledged career where I can fully support my children with this music and make the world a brighter place. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Risks and challenges

I have done everything I can to ensure a smooth release. All the research has been done and all the pieces have been put in place. So the biggest risk at this point is not making my goal. I am putting everything I have into the promotion of this Kickstarter to ensure the optimal outcome.
