New EP "The Harboring"

I'm recording my first album of new material since 2012. Be a part of it, and let's make this thing happen!!


of goal

Hello family, friends and independent music supporters….

I’ve been working for the past two years on writing and developing songs for a new EP. I am thrilled to say that they are now complete. They have been played and played and fixed and rewritten and are now ready to be brought into a studio, and then to YOU.

I released a full-length album in 2012, and this time around, I will be making an EP entitled “The Harboring.” I almost feel like I’m starting from scratch with this material, and I know that I’ve grown tremendously as an artist over the past few years. The songs I’ve written for this next project are a departure from any previous material, so introducing it in a smaller dose feels more comfortable to me.

I want to produce the best album possible, and that means everything including instrumentation, sound, artwork, etc. As an independent artist without the financial backing of a label, the entire cost is mine to bear. So this is where I need YOUR help. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the things that come with a price tag in this process:

Recording/Studio time
Guest musicians
Digital Distribution (iTunes, Spotify, etc)

One of the greatest things about PledgeMusic is that other than the final product (my new EP), you can pick and choose whatever rewards you find interesting that you’d like to receive for pledging! Whatever your price point, there’s something for you. Take a quick scan of the different pledge tiers and their subsequent rewards and when all is said and done, you’ll receive a digital copy of the album AND some other cool things.

EARN SOME FEEL GOOD POINTS. If I reach my goal before the end date, you can continue contributing. A percentage of that money will go directly to The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24.

This album won’t get made without your help. Plain and simple. I wish I had the funds to do this on my own, because let’s be honest… No one likes to ask for money! But you can be assured that EVERY DIME of what is made through this campaign will be spent on making this album a real, physical thing. Art is so often bottled up inside the artist, and I’m attempting to let this exist in a physical form, for all of you, for good. Please help me get in the studio and make this thing happen!

Thank you so much for the constant support and love that I get from each of you. It pushes me to keep going, keep creating, and keep growing. So much love.
