About

$2,797

A full-length record, to be precise! I am teaming up with the illustrious Joel Seibel in his Grant Park studio to craft the songs I have been singing over the past year or so into a presentable package for you and yours, & me and mine.

Nine of my songs will be on the record with instrumentation by a select few prolific performers including, but not limited to, Micah Williams, Gabe Seibel, Thomas Lockwood, and Danny Brewer. We have already begun recording and are continuing until the projected completion date in December.

Well here's the plan for dispersing your hard-earned, generously-given money--
1. pay musicians--their talent is worth it
2. pay my producer, Joel--his patience alone is worth millions
3. pay someone awesome (Danny Brewer) to mix & master it--ya know, smooth out the edges, make me sound legit
4. pay someone awesome (Jon Chandler) to help me design a layout, edit the artwork, make me look legit, etc.
5. pay for it to be duplicated and manufactured

That's it! That's all it takes to make a record. Now, selling a record is a different formula... but I just need your help to make it. I'm giving everyone 2 months to help out, a time frame that just so happens to include my birthday & Christmas (wink wink). Therefore... I'll let you guess what's on my wish list.

Well, today is the last day of the project, there are only a few hours until the project ends, as I'm typing this right now. Thank you, thank you for your support!!! I'm so excited to give out download codes and thank you notes and monogram your initials onto a sock or bandanna. I would also like to say that I've decided to make pralines for those who have donated between $35.01 and $500, instead of only $75-donors.
Hooray!
