Much time has passed since my last musical endeavor or official release for that matter (Field Trip, No Rules, RCA), but that time has finally come! I am about to embark on the journey of recording my first solo record right here in beautiful Ojai, CA.. I have over the years continued to be very active both musically and creatively and have amassed a body of work that I feel is ready to be heard by you, my adoring public. lol For those of you who don't know who I am, I was the lead singer in the rock band Kik Tracee on RCA back in the early 90's. I have obviously grown not only as a person but as an artist since then and what you'll be hearing on this debut is a direct result of the experiences, trials, tribulations, good, bad, the ugly and beautiful of the last decade or so. For the ever loyal KT fans who are still out there and I know you are because of your endless, weekly facebook messages and friendings, this record will in some way be a field trip down memory lane of sorts or an experience entirely new I'm sure. EIther way I think all will be pleasantly surprised as well as myself! lol Recording has already begun on this project as I was able to come up with the down payment so as to get started which there in leaves the balance. I'm going it alone on this one, no major label, or budget to work with which is why I'm turning to this incredible resource of indiegogo for some of the financing of this project. The objective here is to raise funds to help in the production, recording, mixing, and mastering of this record! So whether you are a new fan or one of the many loyal old, a family member or friend, any support or contribution to this indiegogo campaign for my art and sanity's sake would be forever greatly appreciated.
I will be offering some perks as incentive which are essentially pre-order single and full length album downloads and some signed items such as artwork etc... so please check those out! Otherwise, many thanks to those who have championed my cause in the past and thanks to those who will help propel my musical future! I look forward to seeing you all in the near future out on the road at a venue near you!
Breakdown of costs:
The goal of $15,000 we are trying to reach here breaks down as this:
