Hello everyone from beautiful rural Vermont,
I’m getting ready to release my newest effort, Sundowser, and want to give you a chance to pre-order it and get it before the release date. This album is a dream come true for me; it was recorded in the studio that I have been building over the past 10 years. These songs were crafted in this building as well as on an instrument of my own design that has come into fruition with help from the Eastwood/Airline Guitar Co. called the “Bojotar”. Many of you have been avid listeners and supportive fans over the years and I can not even begin to express my gratitude. With the help of PledgeMusic, I’m excited to offer some ways for those of you who have been part of this wild ride from the get-go to get unique, behind-the scenes access to the music and more personal musical performances and opportunities, and of course access to the new music first!
With this PledgeMusic campaign I hope to expand my horizons and share my music with new fans, so your purchase becomes an investment in bringing this music out of obscurity and to others like you. So that not only do my songs travel around the globe, but my bandmates and I do as well. We can’t wait to get out on the road and play this music for you.
An underlying theme throughout Sundowser is the power of our sun, which is fitting considering the studio in which it was made is powered by solar energy. The PledgeMusic campaign involves two companies that support the communal, sustainable methods and ideology with which Sundowser was made. One is BALE, http://balevt.org/, which will benefit from this campaign with a portion of the proceeds going to their community building activity. The other organization is RGS, http://smarturl.it/SolarChampions, who made my dream of a solar studio and house 100% solar powered with a net metering system a reality.
My experience with RGS was effortless with no out of pocket money exchanged. If you are thinking about going solar, email me and I can give you information on how to make an appointment to have a site visit free of charge. If you decide to make the switch to this clean energy source and you use me as a reference, RGS would love to contribute $500 to our campaign.
I consider this campaign a collaboration and I hope you’ll join me! As things go forward with the music we hope the underlying themes of coexistence, sustainability and diversity will progress into paths and programs yet to be imagined.
See you down the road.

A custom hand-crafted new type of guitar called the Bojotar, made personally by Bow. The “Bojotar” is part resonator guitar, part electric guitar and part banjo and was invented by Bow because the instrument he needed to make the sound he wanted just didn’t yet exist. This particular model is unique because Bow will personally modify it so it is just like the one he plays. The added cost is due to the cost of parts to make the modifications.
This is a modified, factory-made, limited first edition!
NOTE: additional shipping costs will apply for international Pledgers. You will contacted with more information.
The whole band will come to your place or event with all of our gear for a full show. Help pick out the set list and we will even bring some signed merch for you and your friends.
