Thanks for considering support of my Kickstarter project!

What am I doing?
I'm making an album of original country/folk/americana tunes that are fun, catchy and.. in my own opinion.. Inspired! ;)

How do I plan on pulling this off?
I've self funded the first 4 songs and need your help to pull off the rest. Here is what I'm trying to do with the Kickstarter funds.
- Finish recording my original tunes
- Pay for mix and mastering of all songs
- Pay for graphic design of CD and promotional materials
- The the finest CDs made that money can buy! ;) What makes them so fine? The music of course.

Bonus: If we raise more than the Kickstarter goal, I'm going to get Vinyl made!!! SWEET.. Every young musicians dream.. to see their record spin on a turntable... Could be just a 45 or maybe the full LP.. It all depends on the funds raised.

To give you a sample of the songs that I've already recorded.. I give you..

Note: This link will take you to my Reverbnation page.. Check out the music and if you like it.. Come back here and support the project!
