Dear Friends, Family and Fans:

I’m recording my Debut EP!!  After a year and a half of writing and testing on stage, I've come up with an album's worth of materials that I’m anxious to get out to the rest of the world.  The evolution of these songs has helped me find my own voice and style since my time in the Buffalo Chips.

During my travels, I’ve had the chance to meet and/or work with a number of musicians that I’d like to feature on this album.  These instrumentalists are Michael DiSanto, Daniel Ross and Elijah Vue on guitar; Derek Schwarzkopf and Zuri Appleby on bass; and Alan Craft and Carl Johnson on drums.

With the aid of Mike Jankowski at A Cappella Productions, and a newly finished booth at home, recording has already started on this project.  The problem is, I am still coming up short of the money needed to finish this endeavor.

I’m hoping to raise $3,250 to cover the final costs of the album.  This funding will help me properly pay the musicians, and the mixing and mastering engineers.  I need your help because I am an independent artist.  That means no record company, no management.  You are the investors, investing in my music and your donation will only be processed if we meet our goal!

So please take a look at the rewards I have to offer and even if you can’t donate, help spread the word to friends or others that you think might be interested.  Thank you so much for your support and your encouragement.  Keep checking back on the site for extras and updates!

Yours Truly,

Michael King
