"M-O-N-E-Y" Is the music video of a track from my first CD, "My Favorite Things" and its also what I'm asking for to help me produce my next CD, "Thosified"
HELP ME FUND MY NEXT JAZZ CD
My name is Thos Shipley and I am a jazz vocalist, writer and actor. I have been very blessed to have been around the world performing and have seen and experience so much. I’m still rising ever higher to reach my peak in music.
Jazz has always been a reflection of people’s feelings and emotions and the sign of our time. Each of the songs I choose are a reflection of my life and experiences. When I hear a song, something occurs and I hear a new twist, a take that others haven’t done before. Some people call it being “Thosified” It’s that sultry feeling that gets you into the right mood, takes you to a new place, and gives you goose bumps all over.
In the rush of our days and especially in these times of economic turmoil, I want to take you to another place, another space, to remember good times and warm feelings, excitement and soulfulness. That’s what I find fulfilling – the ability to make others feel good.
My next cd album, called “Thosified” is a part of you. It’s a grass roots effort to build a compilation of music that you can put on your iPod, your car, or just lay in a hammock and listen and let the cares of the world float away.
I can’t do this alone and I need your help. I am excited about all the musical possibilities of Thosified. In order to produce a quality cd I need to raise $18,000 and only you can make it happen. Will you help me make this dream of "Thosified" a reality?
