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.
