Hello Fans, Family and Friends: As many of you may know, I am in the process of completing my second full length studio album of original music. The album is currently in its final stages of production. The album, which has been a long time coming, promises to be the finest group of songs that I have written and produced to date. I have financed the recording of the album, using my own personal resources. However, I need your support in acquiring the remaining funds necessary to complete the project. Your donations and support will enable me to fund the mixing, mastering and album distribution. Any additional funds will help support photography, marketing, and advertising for the project, as well as the production of a video to accompany the first single off of the album.
In creating this album, I have been inspired by the many and diverse experiences that music has provided me, as a producer, song writer and performer. The love of music has carried me to many places around the world and I have had the privilege of performing with, and learning from, many amazing, talented artists. I have also been blessed with opportunities to study and perform within a wide range of music genres. These experiences have given depth and integrity to my song writing endeavors for this album and have led me to an exciting blending style of alternative music.
I am expecting some of the songs to gain airplay in all types of media outlets, however in order to get any facet of airplay, the music must be at the. However, in the music market of today, recording companies, and TV and Radio outlets expect and require the artist to submit professional, broadcast quality, projects before the artist is considered for a recording contract, or before the music is broadcast on television or radio. My goal, in undertaking this project, is to produce a musical work of excellence and quality that lives up to the music industry standards. Although today's artists are in a great position to do their own marketing, promotion and distribution for their own projects, they are faced with all the costs that are associated with it.
This project features an amazing cast of Chicago artists that have lent their unique performances and songwriting abilities to the music. When finally mixed and mastered, the sound will exceed expectations and when released, this album will represent the character of a historical tradition of innovative music in Chicago, and I invite you to take part in it. With your support, I plan to release the album this September, 2012. In exchange for your greatly appreciated support, please accept the Donation Rewards that I have listed. Thanks for your interest and support of original music!
