Hello! 

The time has come to finish my new record! I need your help to make this possible. 

Since my last record came out in 2009, Ive been busy with touring and collaborating. Ive been able to record very occasionally at ON-ME sound in upstate New York, and at my home.  Now i need to get back to the studio and finish the record. This currently untitled album of songs will be done by the end of 2012 and released in the spring of 2013. 

Funds will go to studio time, travel expenses, compensation for musicians, some gear and the mixing and mastering of the album. Any donation monies that go beyond the minimum request will make it possible to tour next year. 

I have incredibly talented and magical friends who will contribute to this record. Musicians such as Dan Littleton (Ida, Elizabeth Mitchell), Jean Cook (Ida, Jon Langford, pulp), Ida Pearle (Ida, Low), Mirah (solo, Thao and Mirah), Anna Huff (Anna Oxygen, Cloud Eye Control),  Lisa Schonberg (Explode into Colors) and Tim Barnes (everyone from Jim O'Rourke to Samara Lubleski).  I would love to be able compensate them for their time and genius.

I’ve been touring the northern hemisphere and releasing music on independent labels for 20 years. It has become complicated and expensive to make and release records, and to tour. I am deeply grateful for the support I’ve received from fans, friends and collaborators. I am asking for your continued support in making this music. 

 I am offering fantastic incentive prizes. Personalized unique offerings, my solo musical history, and future. 

Thank you for reading this. Please share with people you think would be interested in supporting and acquiring my new sounds.
