I’m raising money for my new album with the help of fans. The album now EXISTS because of your support. I’ll be shipping to “fan-funders” this month. This is the last week of fundraising so if you want to get on board here’s the levels of contribution. Pre-order online with the “Buy Now” button or contribute more for perks from me to you…you’ll get the album in advance of the landlubbers, and I’ll immediately send you a first “sneak peak” of the song “Love Changes Everything.”
Choose your Part, Get Your Perks!

We’ll go to dinner and celebrate afterwards, and I’ll entrust to you my “red and rusted bicycle built like a tank from Sears and Roebuck circa 1952.” It’s the bike that inspired the song “The Bike” owned by my Great Uncle Pat.
