About

Hello friends,

  I am excited to announce my upcoming album is in the works. While I am close to completing the writing and recording, as you probably know, that is just the beginning. 

     That’s why I launched my Kickstarter Campaign. A few things are needed to complete the album, including the mixing & mastering of the lead single. Zach Ziskin (who recently mixed Linda Perhacs’ critically acclaimed album “The Soul Of All Natural Things”) is slated to mix the single, which is a slice of power pop heaven! This album has FABULOUS guest stars: Fernando Perdomo, Brandon Schott, and Ben Eisen lended their talents and I cannot wait for you to hear.

Here is a video of Fernando Perdomo tracking drums for the lead single: 

Here's Fernando tracking tremolator guitar on the lead single:

Here are some of the other completed songs going on the album: 

The rest of the budget will go to essential radio promotion and PR to break through to the right demographic, and a music video for the single.   By reaching my $10,000 goal for this album, I will have given my babies (ahem, songs) a fighting chance to be heard in this world!

Risks and challenges

I am 100% committed to this project. The risks are few. Most of the songs are finished. However, the music video is a team effort. I want to make sure I hire the best people for the job and that we are all committed to the same vision. If for some the project is delayed, you will be immediately notified and given a new estimated completion date.
If I reach the $20k stretch goal, I will schedule a US/Euro tour that will most likely happen in 2018.
Risks for delivering the rest of the rewards are very low. I have all of the CDs, T-Shirts, and digital music ready to give away when the time is right!
