About this project

Peace All,

After 15 years of live performance and collaboration, I am moving into the next evolution of my music and am currently working on my debut album called "Wisdom Child", set for release the Summer of 2012; including a full-length CD (12 songs) a 4 song acoustic EP and music video that I plan to shoot in Jacmel, Haiti at Cine Institute, the only film school in the country along with a mini tour. 

At this point, I'm infusing the new songs with all the life lessons coming through right now.  I really do enjoy telling a story across a group of songs like a good film or a collection of paintings. Fortunately for my pen, shifting Life has been a tough teacher but a beautiful muse.  The result is a compilation of tunes that I’m proud of and that I feel express well my voice and vision.

Gratefully, I’ve been blessed with monster musicians whose mad skills are helping me bring to life "all those crazy ideas” I’d been working to articulate for years.  Also, I’ve been surrounded by non-stop encouragement throughout and receiving supportive interest from creative people all over; engineers, filmmakers, etc… wanting to take part and work on this with me.

Everything is pretty much set; all I need now is a little help from you, my fans, friends & family!

FINAL PREVIEW SHOW - Wed. Jan. 18th @ Sullivan Hall, NYC
Join me and my 4-piece band to celebrate my first official show of the year and hear the new songs live.  Get your advanced tickets now!
(THIS WILL BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO PLEDGE!)

Every penny counts and every bit received will go toward this project:

GOALS:

  • full-length album of 12 songs (to release June 2012)
  • 4 song acoustic EP (to release March 2012)
  • music video to be filmed by the graduates of Cine Institute in Jacmel, Haiti (http://www.cineinstitute.com)
  • a mini tour throughout the NorthEast and some Southern states

BREAKDOWN:

$4,000

  • session musicians' pay
  • engineer / co-producer (donated pledge)
  • studio rental & gear (donated pledge)
  • mixing & mastering (donated pledge)
  • CD duplication
  • videographer (to film the recording process)

    NOTE: Already received a donation of studio time with engineer / co-producer along with mixing & mastering!!!!  So with that off the plate, the remaining costs are now CD duplication and session musicians' pay.  If we DIY the videographer, we can focus more funds on going to Haiti (would love to take my band if possible) and covering costs for our mini-tour.

$8,000

    FOR THE MUSIC VIDEO

  • pay for onsite filming (by Cine Institute graduate filmmakers & director)
  • post production & editing
  • roundtrip flights to Haiti
  • hotel, meals and ground transport

$3,000

    FOR THE MINI TOUR

  • tour support (hotels, meals, fuel and flights for artists)

    GENERAL LOGISTICS

  • admin support
    (processing orders, maintaining calendar & travel, recordkeeping)

Let's make a record!
