I like to think of myself and my music as a fine wine or a big wheel of stinky cheese…They just get better with age. That’s why I’m so excited to be making a new album of what I believe will be the best collection of songs I’ve ever recorded. So, let’s grab a bottle of White Zin, break out some Kraft American singles, and get ready to celebrate because we get to make this new album together!
Through this campaign, I’ll be able to connect to you during the entire music-making process. With your support, you’ll get to hear these new songs before anyone else, and you’ll get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at everything as it happens, leading up to holding your final copy in your hands. Plus, I’ll be posting lots of updates from the studio, including acoustic demos, videos, blogs, and photos. My hope is that this campaign will connect you to my music in a way you’ve never experienced!
From recording, mixing, mastering, photography, album artwork, all the way to production, your contribution will go directly to helping create this album!
You can support in several ways…Some offerings include private house concerts, a VIP album release party, handwritten lyrics, and one-of-a-kind art and merchandise that you can only get here. You can even come to a dinner party at the Baker house where my wife, Mandy, and I will cook for you!
Over the last 10 years, I’ve come to realize that the best part of making music is sharing it with you, and I hope you’ll join us as we start the next decade of music by helping me make this new album.
Thank you and Much Love,
