Next Stop, Willoughby Kickstarter Campaign Ends In 30 Days.

Well, I can’t believe I survived  producing another CD!  18 months in the making which produced 10 brand new original songs. Thank you to all that have supported my music for these 47 years and thank you to all who have pledged to my new CD Kickstarter campaign. Indie artists like myself can’t really survive without you. There is still a month to go and the campaign is now over 50% funded. It only takes a $1.00 donation to be a part of this project. There are some great rewards to the pledger the higher you pledge. Heck, it’s not unlike the Jerry Lewis Telethon!

Thanks for keeping the music and dream alive!

New CD, New Kickstarter Campaign and New Website!

It’s been quite time for all of us, that’s for sure. Amidst all of the chaos, I keep my sanity by immersing myself in my art. No matter what state of mind I am in or what’s going on around me, creating new music takes me to that happy place that gets lost sometimes. For the last year, I have been observing the world and trying to express my thoughts in song. It’s a way of finding hope in sadness, and comic relief in all of the madness. I have written and recorded 10 new songs that I hope when you hear them, you will find your happy place and will help get you through the rough patches we all experience. The CD is entitled, “Next Stop, Willoughby”. The title song “Willoughby” was inspired by one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes. I have a new Kickstarter campaign that went live late last night that you can view on the link below. You can be a part of this project for as little as $1.00.Thank you all so much for the support and I hope to see you out on the road starting March 1st.
