About this project

Tubby Lovers!

IT'S TIME!  The moment of moments that we've all been anxiously waiting for, holding our breath in hopes it would come - and it came, IT CAME, it's finally here!

Now if you don't know what moment I am talking about, let me fill you in...

Over the past couple of months I've been strategically planning how to manifest the music I've been making into a sonic presentation for the one person that I love most in this world, YOU. Since this is my first "official" album, i decided I would pull all the stops - instead of just recording one album and selling it on itunes, I am making a 3 part album megazord equipped with personalized prizes and paraphernalia just for you!  What's that you ask?  What is a 3 part album megazord!?

The Three Part Album Megazord

Part 1 accomplished - record a serious Tubby Love EP in Hawaii with 5 extremely hot tracks and a team of my favorite musicians to help do the deed.

Part 2  SHORTLY after, record a Tubby Love Acoustic Sessions EP with a live string band of TOTALLY different Tubby Tunes.

Part 3  The third and final component to the Megazord will be The Tubby Love Feature Presentation, where I reach out to some of my favorite bands and artists and feature them ALL on one album!

Now as you know, it takes a lot of "corn" to make a record. Cheddar if you will... Bread? I must be hungry...

It takes money to make a record. So I've calculated it down to the T (love) how much of that green stuff it's going to take to make this vision a reality, and it comes down to exactly $11,111.11 -  I checked the math like 11 times!  

Album Expenses

- Studio time at Steelgrass Recording Studio's in Kauai (super bro discount)

- Paying beautiful musicians for their talents and transportations

- Mixing and Mastering by the one and only JOCKO at More Sound Recording Studio (John Brown's Body, Rubblebucket, Thunderbody)

- CD Packaging, Album Art, and a brand new WEBSITE and T-shirt (yes!)

...not to mention all the studio time for parts 2 and 3... am I boring you yet?

LET'S GET DOWN TO IT!

So as you can see, I've got my work cut out for me. All I need is your support! If you decided to donate to the creation of this massive musical megazord, I will be giving back toyou in return.  There are tons of different levels in which you can choose to participate, you could even win a TRIP TO HAWAII (I've always wanted to say that)! Any and all love that you can give will make a difference, always.

Thank you from the total circumference of my heart,

Tubby Love

P.S. I love you and will be posting video updates frequently!
