Hey everyone. Thanks so much for reading this –

As you may know, in addition to touring like a madman in the states and Europe, I’ve spent the last year or so writing what I think is my best material to date. And now, it’s time to make a new record.

For this project, I’ve decided to team up with Pledge Music and invite you all along for the ride. Back in 2009, I was approached by Benji Rogers from Pledge after a show at The Roxy in LA. At the time, I was a little unsure of how the whole process would work, but in the years since, many close friends and many well-known established acts have successfully raised their recording budgets this way. And now it’s our time to make it happen.

The industry has changed drastically since I released Stargazer back in 2006, and while I’ve had my share of victories, I’ve also learned some important lessons along the way. Any artist who wishes to succeed, must be shrewd and keep an eye on every aspect of his or her career. With your help, I vow to make a beautiful classic record that pays homage to many of my musical heroes. We’ve just begun tracking, and already I’m so thrilled with the mood, the sounds we’re getting, and the overall direction we’re headed. I am more excited than I’ve been in ages.

During the course of this campaign, those of you that pledge will gain unprecedented access to the creative process, see exclusive videos and interviews, hear rough mixes/demos etc, and (fates willing) bid on all of the cool exclusives we’ve been cooking up.

I’ve met most of you on my tours since 2005, and many of you have been in constant contact since the golden days of MySpace (we had fun, no?). Your continued support and words of encouragement have always pulled me through any moments of dread, and for that, my deepest thanks.

In the days or weeks to come, I’ll also unveil the album title and new art – these things always have a way of waiting till the last minute.

Thank you all so much. Together, let’s accomplish great things.
