Friends!

Thank you for visiting my PledgeMusic page! I’m so happy to have you here and that through Pledge, we now have the opportunity to get close and personal.

When was the last time I released a new record? 2008? Dang, that’s too long -- let’s change that! I’m excited to say that I’m almost done with a new album for you, produced by Mikal Blue and myself. It’s time to bring this new music to the world…. But first to you guys, my partners in crime. I just need a little more help to make it happen. Let’s leave the business out of it, which unfortunately got me tripped up for far too long, and let’s do this together, just you and me. You in?

Here’s the DL:
For every pledge you’re able to make to help get this new album finished, I want to show you some love in return. I’ve been working hard to come up with some great exclusives for you that I think you’ll enjoy, everything from signed copies of the new album to delicious pie-eating dates and special visits on TV and movie sets. That said, I’m sure I’ve left out a few good ideas, so I also want to keep a kind of “request line” open so you can let me know about any exclusive ideas you don’t see but would love to receive. Just be sure to leave a note under the “comments” tab and we’ll see if we can get it added to the list for you.

With your purchase of any one of the exclusives listed to the right, you’ll get a download of the new album when it’s finished, BEFORE it hits the streets. Also, by pledging you’ll be unlocking the pledger-only updates section of the campaign, ensuring yourself complete access to anything I post there. What might those updates be? Well, they might range from first listens of unreleased demos to special footage of me in the studio…. Who knows, maybe I’ll even ask you what to make for dinner that night. I’m not sure yet, but I guarantee it will be good. Pledge to find out!

Finally, one of the coolest parts of this campaign is that once I reach my 100% target goal, 15% of the proceeds from there on out will go to two amazing, worthy causes. First, Falling Whistles. If you aren’t already familiar with them, be sure to check them out at www.fallingwhistles.com to hear about what incredible things this organization is doing to help bring Peace in Congo. Second (but not second in my heart), The Natural Child Project (www.naturalchild.org). This small, home-grown organization has completely devoted itself to ending child abuse -- a tragic epidemic that many of us, myself (and now you) included, have worked hard to remedy.

While both of these causes deal with HUGE issues, I think we can help them make a difference -- one song at a time. They get their first dollar once my goal has been reached, so if we can consider my goal to be our goal, yours and mine, I know we can pull this off.

I am looking forward to spending the next few months with you guys. Did I mention this campaign will be running through the holidays up to Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Festivus, etc? Well, it is and I can promise you I have some special holiday goodness saved up just for you! Stay tuned and please leave me a message in the comments section. Can’t wait to hear from you!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for your love and support. You inspire me.

Mwah!
