My first album in 7 years! Let’s get it -- and me -- out there...to you.
Whoever you are -- music lover, guitar player, casual listener, long-time fan -- whether you have been following my career all along or just discovered my music recently -- you are the reason I’ve kept doing what I do for over 40 years.
It has taken over a year...but the composing and recording of my new album is done!. As my first album in 7 years -- and my first fully acoustic recording since Handwritten Notes in 2000 -- this record is my “return home” to the acoustic integrated percussive style I invented in the late 1980’s.
It’s full of innovative new music.
It also contains some tunes that I re-learned and re-recorded (”rescue tunes”) from albums that have been locked in major label vaults for decades that I can’t get back. It’s my way of side-stepping the majors and making some of my best earlier music available again.
I’m really excited about it!
But there’s still a lot more to do.
Post production stuff like artwork, packaging, manufacturing.
Promoting the album.
And finally, touring with it globally.
None of this comes cheap.
Being a truly independent musician means I need to raise my own financing. Although I have had control of my own recordings for the past 13 years, I have never had the financial resources to properly promote them.
This campaign is an opportunity to change that story.
I want to get this album out -- and me out with it -- to as big an audience as possible over the next two years.
That’s where you come in. I am asking for your support to achieve a funding goal of $25,000.
Your pledges will be used to pay for:
-- getting the album manufactured (including artwork, pressing and packaging)
-- getting it professionally promoted
-- getting me out touring with it to as many parts of the world as possible over the next two years
If we pass the funding goal of $25,000, then every dollar beyond that will be used for more promotion of the album...and more live concert touring.
I promise to keep you updated on the progress of the campaign every step of the way.
I have known many of you for decades...and met many more of you from all over the world on social networks over the past several years. It would be awesome for my new album to reach as many of you as possible...and it would be even more awesome to be able to reach you in person by playing a live gig where you are :^)

I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, friendship and loyalty over the many long years that I have been creating and performing music. Without you, none of this would be possible.

A special thank you to George and Marilyn from Creation Ground Media for making the video, couldn't have done it without you :^)
