I finally get to make my debut album. I’ve released singles, demos, a couple EPs, an album with my former band, Binga & Gogo, and lots of random works, but I’ve never been able to make a full length solo record. Now, in this era of independence for artists, everything is possible. You, my fans, my friends, “The Troopers”, are going to be here for every step.
We’re making a real rock record. Like The “late 1960’s” Rolling Stones, but progressive and dramatic like Queen, crunchy and gritty like Zeppelin, raw and reckless like Jack White. My Bjork influences might sneak in there, my Barbra Streisand/Judy Garland/Whitney Houston influences too, maybe a dash of my old school hip hop influences, but I’m focused on making it rock and roll. That’s where my soul speaks loudest.
Pre-order the album and automatically get exclusive behind the scenes access. You’ll be updated throughout the entire making of this record with exclusive content. You’ll also get exclusive merch and experiences that will only be available to pledgers. A coffee date, a recording of absolutely any song you request made just for you, acoustic house shows, private concerts, The Tomi Cape, VIP tickets and backstage experiences. Join my choir and be ON the record! You will receive a digital download of the album with any exclusive you order.
A percentage of your pledge will go to “For The Child”, an incredible organization with a mission to build healthy lives for children and families, free of neglect and abuse.
Please share this with everyone you know. Post it everywhere. Your word of mouth is the most powerful marketing tool.
I am so grateful for your support.
YOU are my record label!
