About Me and the Project:
There is something magical about music. Magical in the way it touches our emotions, sets a scene, and says more than words alone could ever say. Magical in the way it stirs up emotion, and in the way it calms and soothes the soul. I’ve always felt like music was made, not just for enjoyment, but to make the world a better place, to make a difference, and to touch people who are hurting. It is healing. It can make you laugh, and sing and dance, or cry, and heal a broken heart. I love this about music; it’s ability to change the world, or make a difference in one person’s world. It’s why I do what I do. This is also why I’m so excited about my new recording project.
In touring for my last release, FREE FALL, I came to a realization. I wanted to be able to reach people in a deeper way. As a result this last year has been a year of transformation. I’m finding ways to get more involved in communities, in helping youth, and in reaching fans in a more personal way. This new project, and it’s writing reflects that. This project is about vulnerability. It’s about healing, love, positive transformation, and learning to BELIEVE AGAIN, after your world has come crashing down around you. This project means a lot to me, not just personally, but also because I believe it has the ability to reach people who are hurting, and change lives. But I can’t do this project without your help. Because of your support of my last release, FREE FALL, I was able to get my single to some radio, record and release a music video that got more than 54,000 views in the first two months, and open for acts like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, playing larger fairs and festivals. That was all made possible by you and your amazing support, and I know that we can do amazing things with this project as well!
What We Need And What You Get:
In order to record this whole EP, it will cost $10,000. That’s a lot for one person, but, this is one of the reasons crowdfunding is so great! The power in crowdfunding is word of mouth, shared interest and belief, and a lot of people contributing what they can to a bigger cause so that we can accomplish AMAZING things together! With crowdfunding, this isn’t just my project, it is yours too. It allows you to be involved in the process from beginning to end. It gives you the ability to be part of the magic of making a difference, AND get special limited time perks and behind the scenes opportunities. This project and campaign present a unique opportunity to be involved, not just in the recording, but also in choosing the songs and topics for the rest of the project. We have already begun recording the first single, BELIEVE AGAIN, but are still deciding on the rest of the songs, and continuing to write for the project as well.
Thank you for getting me this far, and making FREE FALL the success that it was! I’m so grateful to you, and I couldn’t embark on this forward journey without your help and support! Please know that whether you can contribute a little, or a lot, every single contribution helps and makes a difference. Your support through sharing this campaign and project with friends and family helps too! I know TOGETHER WE CAN!
