My new album is called Save You From Yourself. It contains brand-new songs, polished full-band reworkings of favorite demos, and guest performances from many talented friends. It's my first full-length and a BIG step forward in my career.
There's still a lot of work to be done. I still need funds to finish the mastering, CD pressing and artwork. Since the beginning, I've financed everything myself without the help of a label, marketing or PR department. Without your help, it will be much harder to get this album out into the world.
You can help by pre-ordering the album with one of the contribution packages on the right. All packages include a special autographed pre-release CD mailed to you and a full-length preview MP3 of my song "You Are Loved" from the new album, which will be emailed to you immediately after ordering!
If you've been enjoying the free MP3s, demos and live tracks over the years, I hope you will consider pre-ordering a copy. My warmest thanks in advance for any contribution you can make!
It really depends on how quickly I can raise the funds. If everything goes well, you'll have your goodies at least one month prior to the "official" release date. However, if pre-orders are slow, it may be a few more months before I can finish the project.
As soon as you place your pre-order, you'll get an email with a link that will let you download a ZIP file containing the MP3 and lyrics. (Please let me know if you have any trouble with the download!)
Great question :) Here are some of the expenses you'll be helping me cope with:
Plus, any amounts that aren't used for CD production will go towards promoting the album, like, printing posters, mailing CDs to radio stations, etc. Your contribution not only helps get the album done, but also out.
Nope! Paypal will process your credit card just fine, no need to sign up with them. I've used Paypal for years to sell my CDs to many happy customers with no problems.
The bonus CD will have some special acoustic versions of some of the album songs. The CDs will be autographed and numbered. Only a limited number of copies will be made, and when they're gone, they're gone!
Send 'em to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll answer any questions or concerns you might have.
...all of the above, plus a house concert. That's right. I will come to your house (or backyard, or nearby coffeeshop) and play a show for you and your friends. Contact me for details.
