I’ve been making music all my life, and this album is my first officially released collection of songs, and my first album on a record label – it means so much to me! My sound is rooted in American musical traditions – Appalachian old-time, classic country, ballad-singing, and more – but is informed equally by contemporary voices in Americana. Tradition is important to me, but so is moving it forward and keeping these sounds living and breathing.
I grew up in Lexington, Virginia in a musical family, deeply immersed in the Appalachian traditions of my home region. At 9 years old I started performing with my parents, a celebrated old-time duo called Jones & Leva, and by 15 I was touring and performing with my father regularly. Since then, I’ve formed multiple bands, continuing to grow my songwriting and performance skills, winning competitions at old-time festivals like Clifftop, and teaching at camps such as the Swannanoa Gathering, Big Sur Fiddle Camp, and Centrum Voiceworks in Port Townshend, WA.
By contributing to my Pledge campaign, you’re directly helping me to cover the costs of recording, production, and dissemination of the record. The recordings are nearly finished, which means I’ll be sharing some audio of some of the new tracks exclusively with Pledgers along the way. The album will come out in Spring 2018, but by pre-ordering here you’ll get it before anyone else!
You’ll also gain access to my process through the journey of getting this album out into the world. I’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and stories along the way. You’ll be fully immersed in this album as its being made! I’m excited to offer some pretty special items and experiences, as well: private music lessons, limited edition poster prints, handwritten lyric sheets…you can even have me perform in your home or record you a custom cover or original song!
Thank you for checking out my Pledge campaign – I hope you consider supporting it and helping me get this album out in the world. I can’t wait to connect with you over the course of this project!
