Well friends, we’ve accomplished a lot over the last 3 years. With your support we’ve toured nearly 3200 miles across the country by bicycle. With your attention, we’ve raised awareness about the plight of mountain top removal coal mining in Appalachia. And now, we’ve team up with the nice folks at PledgeMusic and YOU to bring to life my 3rd, full-length record, “Half-Made Man.”

Here’s how it all works! We’ve created exclusives that you can pledge for. The money raised here will fund the production and promotion of this record. Both very important and pricey! After we meet our goal, 10% of the funds raised will go to the amazing folks at Oxfam America.

We will meet the goal, but if for some reason we don’t, we won’t receive anything but the knowledge that we tried. So, let’s make this real!

Spread the word. Let’s make this legendary!

Be well and I’ll see you down the road,
Ben
