Bad and Ugly, but Some Good Too.

January 4th, 2016 · Uncategorized

Had a mini nervous breakdown in the studio last night. I had been struggling ALL NIGHT to get this mix right, and it wasn’t working…

But I just kept working anyway. I eventually took a break to listen to THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY soundtrack for inspiration. That thing is gorgeous. So after that, I felt inspired. Plus, there was a picture of Clint Eastwood on it. It’s hard to feel weak while looking at him.

I powered through, tried a few different approaches, and in the end I ended up with something I’m VERY happy with. Dare I say… proud of! I ended up listening to the song over and over because it sounded SO GOOD. I can’t wait to finish and show you guys all the hard work I’ve been putting into this thing.

Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is, don’t give up on the things that you love. If you want it bad enough, you will find a way.

IT’S OVER! THANK YOU!!!

August 4th, 2015 · IndieGoGo, LP

THANK YOU!

IT’S OVER! THANK YOU EVERYBODY!

It was a crazy few months there, but in the end 72 people from 4 continents helped me raise over $2,500 to help me print my next album. THANK YOU!!! Whether you helped with actual money, sharing a link, or telling a friend, I sincerely appreciate all of your support and it’s overwhelming to know that so many people believe in me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

A lot of people have asked me if there’s still a way to donate, and the answer is yes, you can still donate directly to the cause by clicking on this little button right here:





If you’d like a perk, just visit the campaign page and tell me which one you’d like when you send your donation. I didn’t meet my goal, so I could definitely use the help since there are still printing, mastering, artwork, digital distribution, and promotion costs, but either way, I’m going to make this happen. It’s time to crunch some numbers, finish the last bit of recording, mix, and prep this bad boy for release. WISH ME LUCK!

THANK YOU TO THE FOLLOWING AMAZING PEOPLE, SOFA CITY SWEETHEART LOVES YOU!

This Way To Progress!

June 30th, 2015 · IndieGoGo

Heading into the second half of this campaign! The support has been amazing so far (and I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart) but there is still a way to go until I reach my goal. I’m gonna need everyone’s support to make this happen, whether that be a donation, a share/link to my page, or even just telling your mom about it (seriously, tell your mom, she’s probably very nice).

Together, we can make things happen. LET’S DO THIS! Make sure to check out the perks to see what amazing/ridiculous things you can get in return too!
