Howdy Y'all......

Its been 4 years since my last recording venture. Much has happened in the last 4 years. Got married, had a daughter, played over 300 shows, wrote over 200 songs, traveled to Italy 3 times, England, Ireland, East Coast , West Coast, made many friends, made many lifelong friends. I NEVER go into the studio too soon. I always make sure that the songs are ready. The stories are ready. The chapter is ready for this never ending book. In this batch of songs we will have to pull from, there are songs of high drama, there are songs on international intrigue, philosophical meanderings, hijinks gone awry, love, loss, redemption and like any great rock record.... a song about a train. Check out the rewards system we have come up with because its pretty great. There is even one reward i'm a little hesitant to put up there, but you do what you gotta do in this day and age right? 

I'm so thankful to all of you for the years of support and encouragement. I'm so excited to make this record i'm having sleepless nights already just thinking about it. I need your help. I've been preaching for a year that "We're All In This Together" and i really feel that way. I thank you for taking your time and thank you for your generosity. The money raised from this album will not only go to record the record but also help promote and publicize the record in a way we feel will be fair and honest to the album itself. God bless you and hope to see you all real soon.

Much Love.....

Michael
