by now everyone who pledged for digital albums should have received their (unique) download codes to retrieve them. And, almost all of the physical rewards (CDs, t-shirts, etc) should have been mailed and received too. If you haven't received your physical reward yet, it may be that we don't have a mailing address for you! If you haven't given us your mailing address, please either respond to this with it (please include your reward tier amount) OR message it to us once logged into your Kickstarter account.
Special note for the two $400 donors: your rewards are done by hand, and I had to leave on tour, so I will finish creating them upon my return to Hawai'i at the end of August. Mahalo for your patience!
As for those of you who pledged for Skype lessons or concerts, as I said in private messages to you, I'll contact you end of August to schedule our sessions. Looking forward to it!
The official release of RIPE will be sometime in the next 2 months, so you truly have gotten an early glimpse into my art ahead of the rest of the world, and how appropriate as you were the ones who gave with true aloha to help in the creation of this new record. MAHALO!!!
After a week in Salt Lake City filming a music video for the song "Manic", I'm now in Canada about to head over to the Edmonton Folk Festival to perform all weekend with some amazing musicians from around the Earth. Stay tuned for upcoming news regarding a new tour in November + the official release and videos, etc.
