Thank you. All 183 of you. Thank you.
183 of you showed up and said, "yes."
Now it's my turn. I'm spending the day Sunday with Bennett (engineer), Leah (cello), Dave (viola), Gabe (violin) and Rita (oboe). Because of your help, that time will be free from worry about how I will pay for the recording, the musicians, the mixing, the mastering, the designers... I can just be creative and make my music. I can't even begin to describe to you what a relief this is. Thank you.
Next week I'll begin mixing the first track that I'll release from the album: "Invocation." Ryan Rumery will produce and add some additional percussion. I am loosely scheduling that release for mid-August and you will all get a free download of that track before I officially release it - a bonus reward I wasn't sure I could offer until I saw that we went over my goal. Thank you.
The book and album will be finished sometime in October and again, I will firm up the dates and announce them as soon as I can. Your rewards will all go out before the album is officially released.
So, thank you. Thank you for saying "yes" to this project, and thank you for helping me do the same.
