3 albums ... press and interviews that still totally feel surreal ... tours where i figured out that i wanted coming to my show to feel like me having friends over in my living room.
and now, i've got new songs to share. want to check out my music?
listen to the whole "Written On" album for free! (feat. my cousin Victor Wooten on 2 tracks!)
i have a story to tell! one that'll unfold in 5 parts ... little squadrons of a handful of songs each, marching into your heart, each chapter building into the next, every few months for the next year and a half or so.
it's a story of love. and a relentless commitment to being together.
i'm raising $7,000 to record these 5 EPs in a NYC studio where i feel very much at home, where i know these songs will morph like transformers into music that truly sounds like living. the $7,000 will cover:
mixing & mastering the songs
printing & packaging CDs
paying a little something to my insane musicians who'll be trapped in a small room with me for countless hours
- and finally, it'll give us a tiny promotion budget to spread the music to as many beautiful humans as we can
yep! once the songs are recorded & ready, one EP will be released every few months on a "pay what you'd like" basis! it's a new model for music.
it's like a dinner party - i LOVE cooking the food and can't wait for you to show up and just eat. but hey, if you want to help out by bringing dessert, i'd be super happy! ... i love dessert :) so when you download the songs, you'll be able to write in how much you'd like to pay - whether that's $0 if you're strapped for cash or $100 if you're feeling give-y!
*all perks $25 and over include a signed hard copy + digital downloads of all 5 EPs!
i've cooked up some pretty juicy thank yous for you for enlisting in this army! everything from a private Skype concert for you, where you pick the my set list, to signed, advanced copies of all 5 squadrons so you won't need to wait a full year to piece the story together, to having your name listed in the album's liner notes, to my performance of the cover of your choice, or even your own, specially commissioned original song.
JAVIER RAMOS (cajon / hair)
KYLE MASTELLER (electric ... except he's on acoustic in that picture / muscle)
KEVIN PLYBON (acoustic / sarcasm)
DOUG BERNS (bass / faces)
... more band bios coming soon!
you're so sweet to ask. we're going to get along just fine ;)
