    THE PLEASE PICK ME:

    This is the one, folks. If we can get just 1,000 people to pledge $50, this album is made. In return, you'll get a Signed Vinyl (or CD) copy of the New Album when it is released + a Signed physical CD of the new EP, "All We Can Do"(to be mailed starting July 1) + digital downloads of all 3 + the personal thank you card. When you pledge this amount, please also send in a photo of yourself (or your kids, or dogs, or whatever!) that we will place in a collage poster of all the fans who made this project happen, to be included in the New Album Vinyl/CD. I want to see your face on my album!

    THE RARE SONGS PACK:

    So this is a super special one, folks. You'll get the "Please Pick Me" + a Signed CD and digital download of all the demos from my past 2 records, Madman and Salesman and the Shark. These demos are not released anywhere else and will not be for sale again after the Kickstarter is over! These are my babies--the little seeds that later became the songs you love. You'll hear the raw, unadulterated songs while they were still in the making. You'll hear ambulance sirens going by my window and the kids playing in the background. But mostly, you'll hear how the process happens for me. It's like peering into my soul...

    THE EXCLUSIVE NEW ALBUM SHOW PACK:

    Ok, this one is a good one. In addition to the "Please Pick Me", you get to be the first to hear the ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH, LIVE way before it comes out. On October 29, 2016, I'll be performing all the tracks off of my new album at my favorite spot, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY. I'm so excited to bring you guys these songs, to break in Caffe Lena's NEW sound system, and to personally thank each and every one of you for making this happen. Hope to see you there.

And, you can be in your jammies.

    THE FORAGING + DINNER PACK:

    If you know me, you know about my love affair with wild foods. Here, you get The "Please Pick Me" + a 3-4 hour foraging experience to be followed by a dinner made with all the goods we found that day! This is such an amazing way to experience foraging full circle. FYI, it's totally legit for you to share this incentive with others! You can have as many people as you are comfortable with (I suggest 10-12) and split the fee with them. We can do it in your own backyard, or at one of my super secret foraging spots.
    NOTE: limited to within a 4 hour drive of Troy, NY, OR touring schedule (so, you CAN pledge for this if you live in, say Washington State, but it will be scheduled for when I'm in that area).
    NOTE: I can also do a Survival Skills course instead of Foraging if you like! It's awesome for kids or adults, and we'll do skills like fire making, shelter, cordage, and/or baskets. Plus you'll get all kinds of material to keep for practice.
