Psychedelic Americana - a celebration of the American song catalog, centered around an interpretation of Allen Ginsberg's song 'Western Ballad

About this project

Our aim here is to fund my most recent recording project called 'Western Ballad'. My dear friend Mark Bingham and I wrote all of the songs with exception of a traditional hobo song called 'Little Stream of Whiskey' and the title track 'Western Ballad' penned by Allen Ginsberg.

All of the money raised here will allow us to create a beautiful package by working with independent graphic artists and pressing services. I am a completely self funded artist. I do not have a record label. With your help I'll bring this music to as many people as possible.
