After a month long Kickstarter campaign, I am happy to report that it was a big success! Over $12,000 was raised for my new album and I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for everyone who helped to make it happen! Thank you for supporting independent music, and for being a part of something so special to me. Keep your eye out for tour announcements and brand new music coming spring of 2012!

Wow! With 7 days left in this campaign we have raced past the minimum goal of $7500! I can’t even begin to thank all of you who have pledged your support and made it all happen under the deadline! If I could individually hug every one of you…I most definitely would.
Now that the minimum goal has been met with time to spare, our NEXT goal is to reach $10,000! You might think that $7500 is plenty of money to make a record, but it’s really just the beginning. So now I ask you to help me take this campaign as far as we possibly can before fundraising ends on August 9th. To help make that happen, I am offering a special download of my song “Blood Lust”, which was recorded live last fall and features the incomparable Jackie Greene. The song was released only on video, but to those who have pledged and are willing to INCREASE their pledge by any amount, I will personally email the track to you now.
If you haven’t pledged yet but have been thinking about doing so, I encourage you to visit my Kickstarter page
and go to the “Updates” tab for an exclusive first listen of my new song “Coastlands”
, which will be on the forthcoming album. I am happy to offer this insiders look at a very meaningful collection of songs, as a “Thank You” for the support of my pledgers who have so generously helped us get this far. I am especially proud of this particular tune, and I hope you like it as much as I do!
Keep the love a-coming and know that I am grateful beyond words!
