I hereby announce that I will be flying to Portland, OR this July to work with an amazing producer as we begin the recording of my full length album.
While most musicians raise money for the cost of their album using a website called Kickstarter - I have decided to do something different.
Im afraid there are SO many people asking for $$ on the internet now, that it has become so... impersonal. Don't get me wrong, I love that people can raise money for a good cause with a click of a button, But I am about to pour my heart and soul into the studio. I'll be making music that will represent me as an artist for the rest of my life.
While I realize I might miss out on a lot of digital dollars by not participating in Kickstarter - I feel this will be more intimate, organic, and meaningful for my first record.
SO, I will be raising money for my album fund using my own method I am calling "Kickstarter Unplugged"
For 100 days - I will have my tip jar out at every show just like always. I will save all my tips down to the penny.
If you would like to contribute - please stop by one of my shows. My gig schedule is up to date in the music schedule tab. If you would like recognition for your contribution drop a note in my tip jar with your name on it.
If you are really far away and can't come to a show (Hi mom) - you can snail mail me a dollar if you really want to

Kickstarter unplugged will be exactly that. Unplugged. Cash only rule. Old school.
But what if I don't make enough?
There is no such thing as "not enough" - it is MORE than enough that someone even cares to drop their hard earned dollar in my tip jar. It is MORE than enough that you are even reading this right now.
I'm going to record my album regardless of how much it costs me. I just want you to know that if you enjoy my music and you take the time to tip me - your money is going directly towards making more music.
This is a life. long. dream. come true. It's happening now. Finally. Exactly as its meant to. Let's do this. #Kickstarterunplugged
