I'm fulfilling my life's passion, but I can't do it without your help. I've been making music as long as I can remember and producing since I was a teenager. I've always loved music because it's a way to connect us all on a deeper and more powerful level. After moving to Austin in 2011, I've had such a positive reception to my music that it's almost surreal. I've been fine-tuning the songs you've heard me play at my shows for years now and I'm finally releasing these songs on an album and touring it for over 3 weeks. In the years that I've been making my music, I've always enjoyed the symbiotic relationship I've had with my audience, the feedback loop of sharing my music and the positive reactions from my fans. It makes me feel truly alive. It's why I perform.
I need your help to send me on tour and create some buzz about the new album (released at Cheer Up's–September 27). I'm having to hire for press to get the word out about my album and generate publicity around the record. Besides the press, going on tour can be super stressful when you don't exactly know if you'll be taking home any money at the end of the night. I need to pay for food, gas, tour management, hotels–not to mention I'll be taking off three weeks of work–another blow to the bottom line.
Touring this record is extremely important to me. It will allow me to communicate these songs I've shared with my fans to a much wider audience. I want to meet new friends and make new connections that hopefully lead me to follow my passion–making music for a living. When you contribute, you're helping me follow my path, my dream, my passion. I'll never be able to thank you enough for what you're helping me to achieve, but I've got some dope perks that express just a fraction of how grateful I am for your contribution.
SUPER DOPE PRIZE ALERT: Anyone that contributes to the campaign gets entered to win 2 passes to Utopia Festival this September! Crazy awesome bands include: Cold War Kids, Father John Misty, Warpaint, Dan Deacon, Wild Child, yours truly...
If I make my goal, I will have a thank you performance upon my return from tour for anyone that can make it. Will update here and Facebook with details.
Thanks so much for your time and your donation!
