WelcomeThanks so much for checking out my campaign! Since time is of the essence, I'll cut right to the chase - something awesome has brought me to IndieGoGo. Karl Groom, lead engineer and founder of Thin Ice Studios in Surry, England, and mix master behind my favorite band of all time, DragonForce, has offered to mix and master my brand new album, Old Souls...Young Hearts. Not only is this sonic adventure a labor of love over 10 years in the making, it also contains the official theme song for my original animated series, Little Billy, an '80s nostalgia show about a rad little dude with Special Needs, and the first and only cartoon ever to tackle this subject! Karl's mastery of balancing intricate, high-speed arrangements such as these makes me 100% confident he's the man for the job! My pledge goal of $4,500 covers all mixing and mastering costs, including the conversion from US Dollars to British Pounds. Basically, if enough people simply pre-order the album by pledging $10 or $15, we should be in business! Please enjoy my complete list of Perks to the right.

Like DragonForce, Strung Out, NOFX, Blink-182, Slick Shoes, Slimer, and many of its other influences, Old Souls...Young Hearts is a power-packed shred fest of ultra-melodic insanity! It combines the heart, speed, and melody of '90s Skatepunk with the epic power and triumph of '80s Heavy Metal. With tempos ranging from a heart-pounding, gear-shredding 210 bpm to a power-ballady 145 bpm, the album offers something for everyone. I have already recorded 80% of this new LP in my own, hand-built studio. All drums, bass, guitars, symphonic sections, and some vocals have been tracked to completion. By the time this campaign runs its course, the recording phase will be done and with your support, the album can go straight into mixing!
Thank you so much for your time, consideration, and support! If you cannot afford to participate financially, please share the link to this campaign with all your Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter pals. Blog it, Email it, dare I say...talk about it face-to-face in (*gulp*) real life! LoL Also, be sure to check out the Campaign Gallery (tab at the top right) on a regular basis for new media and teasers from the album. Thanks again and to all those who already pledged to receive this album during my Little Billy Kickstarter, fear not - you have no obligation to pledge again, and will receive a finished version of the album regardless of this campaign's outcome. Thank you!
