A love letter to my fans....
When I drove to Nashville almost two years ago with my son in the backseat, against the backdrop of the many cardboard boxes filled with all of those things we just couldn't leave behind, I was fueled by your encouragement. For sometime now, you and all of your kind words have pushed me out onto countless stages across this country, held my hand until the line that just couldn't be written finally appears, and kept my ears ever-straining to hear that next song.
I started working on a new record almost a year ago. I knew immediately that it was going to be different from anything I'd done before. I decided that I was going to really take my time with it, the time to experiment and make a truly incredible sounding album. I have been working so hard and have put so much of myself into this thing. I can't wait for you to hear it.
All of the Kickstarter funds raised will go towards:
Recording costs (studio time, musicians)
In total, this record is going to cost over $50,000 to make and release. But meeting the goal of $20,000 will be a HUGE help. If we exceed this goal, just know that all of the money raised will be put towards these costs.
I feel so lucky. Music is one of the things that I most love in this world. And the creation of each and every song is my favorite part. But thankfully I don't create in a vacuum. I do it for you. And because of you, I can keep doing it.
