For the past year I have been pouring every ounce of energy I have into this new record. It’s been the record I’ve been waiting to make my whole life and am really excited to share it with the world. I knew for years that I wanted to make an album of this kind but was just waiting to have the right songs, and even more importantly, the right musicians and engineers to make it with. This past year I found all of that. I wrote a whole bunch of music quickly that I really loved and felt like the most honest thing I had done to date. And while I have been living in NYC as a full time musician for years, I have been surrounding myself with all my favorite players. The stars aligned and I made it. Now I have to get it out!
I am going to do a pre-sale of the album in both cd, and vinyl format. And with that pre order the person pledging will get a download of the record. This will greatly help with the costs of getting these printed and will hopefully get it out to even more masses.
In addition, I am offering a variety of packages including, private concerts, lessons on piano, guitar, mandolin, bass, and more. Also I am excited to offer the early demos of these songs as I wrote them. All were finished and recored at about 3am in my living room on my piano. I have archived these and want to release them as an extra.
I am grateful to have any and all support in making this album a reality. The music business is a tough place these days, with little money to be made and a whole bunch of places where you have to spend it. I have sacrificed the last year living on peanuts to get this out to the world. And its really important to me. The music on this record is as honest as I can be. It makes me feel good and I want to share that feeling with the rest of the world.

Love and Support
Pledge what you can to bring this thing to life. The costs of recording, hiring musicians, engineers, mixing mastering, production, PR, touring all take a whole lot of money in an industry where you don’t make much. Your support will go a long way here.
