Album Cost: First and foremost, recording and writing is one of my favorite parts of being an artist and I relish the chance to have free time to do it. I know my way around my home studio pretty well and can accomplish very good results recording and tracking vocals and guitar. My studio skills don't go far beyond that as I leave important mixing to the pros like my mixing engineer and friend Marc Greene. I'm also not a very good bass player, terrible drummer and a hack on the keys. Professional friends and hired studio musicians will pick up the slack and back my songs where needed. I'm making a huge effort to carefully budget to keep it under 10K - professionals need to be paid for their work. I never thought I would request funding support from my fans but sadly, my industry as a performing musician and DJ won't be back in full strength anytime soon. My new job is taking care of my precious boys (homeschooling...etc) and running our household while my amazing scientist wife is on the front lines fighting Covid 19. Otherwise, I'm going to do what I can to finish this album, perform social distancing concerts for my neighbors and stream shows online. Thank you for stopping by and I'm thrilled to have your support.
