Hi my Peops,

Here I am making a new record. ’Bout 3 songs in. Recording between tours and writing whenever I can – even on chairlifts ( hear soon to be recorded: “Happy Days Lunch Box”). My friends and I are set on making a really great record – a true representation of where I am right now in my life. Some friends you may have heard of (like Ben Harper, like Brett Dennen) have also lent their hands in the first couple songs (“Angel Eyes” and “Weekend Guy”) already completed.

I started this Pledge Campaign because it seemed like a really good way to get help from the people that care the most – the fans of my music. Y’all are the best! And I "pledge"to you to deliver a bad ass (but warm hearted) record!

Please see the incentives, events and avant-garde interactions being auctioned off. Ooh la la.! All proceeds will support this recording (and releasing) process in the world of the independent record biz. Also, a percentage will go to St Joseph Center, located in Venice, CA doing terrific vital work in West LA. http://www.stjosephctr.org/

You will be updated as we roll along – sights, sounds, and insights into the recording process, plus just some good ’ol time photos and videos. Thanks for listening and supporting!!! To quote my new song, “Angel Eyes” – “You make it possible to do the things I do.”

Merci Beaucoup, Love and Gratitude, T
