Dear Friends and Supporters,I have news about the upcoming records. Before, I want to say that I know you have been waiting to receive new material from me and I very much appreciate your patience. The postponed recording dates for "Novel" with Jeffrey Zeigler are set already, we will be recording the album starting the 19th of April of this year.
On the other hand, I am signing with Denovali Records, who will be releasing both albums. The official release date for "Impetus" is for September of this year. But wait! A download link of the finished album "Impetus" will be available for all of you starting July 12th, (my birthday.)
Denovali will be making hard CD copies of "Impetus" that will later be at your desk!
My original plan was to have a release much earlier in the year. After discussing and planning the year with Denovali, we both agreed that September would be the best month for the release, giving us also time to prepare promotional material to support the album.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
Thank you for all the support!
Thank you everyone for making this project a success. I am very exited to share what's new to come with you all.
I have been noticed that several people's transactions did not work. If your debit/credit card transaction failed, the only thing you need to do is to login into your Kickstarter account and proceed to do the payment again. Re-enter the correct payment information into Amazon and have the charge go through properly.
Kickstarter will send you an e-mail every 48 hours with a direct link to correct the issue. If your transaction didn't go trough, you will have seven days to correct payment issues. Remember that you have only 7 days to correct the payment.
If you have any questions, PLEASE send me a message through Kickstarter and we'll discuss a way to get things right so you get your reward!
Thank you again for making this project a success.
To all 244 incredible supporters! Thank you!
I am just going to say it... this has been one exiting and rewarding experience I have lived and I will remember forever...
...the money means nothing, the support, friendship and belief meant everything to me.
I have no better way to say thank you than to give you resonances from my heart.
(remember I need to work on this...) : )
I make a toast to you all tonight.
