New album and bonus e.p.!

Join me in making my new album and bonus e.p. Pianos and drums and violins...oh my!


of goal

One night in 2010, I starting banging on the piano, crafting a new song to inspire myself. I played the song that became Heliotrope a few days later on a webcast and my music has taken off in ways I could have never imagined. Under the Radar magazine posted my song on their site and since then, thousands of people have listened to Heliotrope. It inspired me to write a whole new album and bonus e.p. of material, which I have been recording over the last 2 years. The time has come to finish my recordings and I want to invite YOU to be a part of the process.

By becoming part of my Pledge campaign, YOU have the power to make my music the best it can be. You get to choose your level of participation and in return, you will get a finished copy of the album “It Is Happening Again” and the “Miniatures” e.p. along with exclusive access to the creative process. You will become the voice of this project when you link this page up with your Facebook and Twitter. You will get the chance to own limited edition copies of my work, listen to new songs, watch video updates and give feedback on the new songs. The best thing about Pledgemusic is the collaborative atmosphere it creates and I invite you all to become a part of this adventure with me. Your support is invaluable and I won’t be able to do this without you.

You can watch the video for Heliotrope right here and take a listen to the finished songs for It Is Happening Again on my Bandcamp site. After we reach 100% of our goal, a portion of the proceeds from this project will go to the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness Based Education and World Peace. This organization is dear to me as it advocates and teaches meditation to help at risk populations. As someone who works with children with special needs, I am passionate about helping others on their own journey through this world.

Thank you to everyone who is reading this…I am so excited to be making music but most of all I’m excited to be making it with you!

10% post goal
10% of any money raised after the goal is reached will go to The David Lynch Foundation.
