Most of you may know by now, that I have a new Crowd Funding project: FIRE IN THE RAINSTORM MARKETING AND BROADCAST campaign.
What you may or may NOT know is that when you contribute... you get PERKS. Wait what? Example:
When you contribute $50, you will get a signed RETURNING album by Will Ackerman, AND digital download of my album FIRE IN THE RAINSTORM + a signed FIRE IN THE RAINSTORM album by me. Yeah.. thats right. Did you know that the album signed by Will is a Grammy© Award Winning album! We have been friends, and collaborators for about 6 years and he contributed because of that.
I know that many of you have been following my progress, and I am certain you are wondering why I am creating campaigns for my music. My job has many hats, I do everything. Marketing, promotion, financials, writing, traveling, creating a buzz on social media, you name it I do it. I hire people to help create the art for the CD covers, website updates, marketing and promotion. I write the music, then I go to a studio to record it. I hire the studio, which includes fabulous Engineer Tom Eaton. Will is my producer, I hire him because I know how lazy I can get, and he kicks my butt! This adds up, the amount of $$ that are coming in help, but it is NOT enough. THIS is why I chose to come to you for contributions.. and anything you can contribute goes to what I outlined in the campaign.
* Broadcast and Promotion
* Western United States tour 2016
* t-shirts, posters, wristbands
All of your contributions helps me continue to go and do all of these things. Without it, well lets stay POSITIVE!!

I was going to take the day off today, and sleep in. My body decided on doing something totally different.. my eyes popped open at 6:45am. I browsed my email, I should have rolled over and kept on sleeping! Is it so hard to ask to sleep in 'till like 10am? Yes apparently it IS! Don said to me this morning "I tried to get you to take the day off, well it looks like you are as busy as ever!" LOL OH well...
So while I am awake, I'd like to ask for your support with my IndieGoGo campaign. So many of you have contributed and I am SO proud of that! However, I really need the extra PUSH with this. If 300 of you were to contribute $25 this thing would be funded! All contributions go to: Marketing/Broadcasting world wide, manufacturing T-shirts, wrist bands and posters, western states tour 2016, professional video. $25 gets you ALL of my music including digital, the CDs are all signed and beautifully wrapped and gently sent on to you once the campaign is over.
Contribute today! INDIEGOGO-FIRE IN THE RAINSTORM BROADCAST/MARKETING
Love You ALL!

The really cool part is this:
A week before the surgery - I had a problem with my blood pressure. I was at my Urologist's office, near a hospital, which the doctor decided I should go to the ER. The office manager wheeled me in a wheelchair to the ER. To depend on someone to take me to the ER like that was hard for me. Her attitude was amazing, and comforting. Needless to say, my blood pressure was brought down and all turned out well. It was then I decided the next time I went into the office I'd take a copy of "Fire in the Rainstorm" to her, which I did.
This past week, I went back for a post op visit. As soon as I walked in, she stopped me and told me she has it in her car, and takes it every where with her. She told me the music made her cry... and she could not believe it. She loved every part of it. She also had her friends listen, and they cried too.
After my appointment, she came out and hugged me, and told me thank you over and over. This was an amazing thing for me to experience. To be quite honest, this whole experience with her made me tear up. I am so grateful for ALL of you.. those of you that helped me get this album recorded.
The next step is marketing and promotion, which I invite you again to work side by side along with me. Looking forward to it all....
love & peace in music...

This is a "brave album" quoting my friend and producer Will Ackerman. There are many fantastic solo pianists, and I hope to be among them.
I invite you to join me, as I take these steps to release this album, to share with your family and friends, to tell the world about the music you will come to love.
I will be writing and sharing stories from the recording, and will tell you about the songs from the liner notes. I will also be sharing comments from those that joined in creating the album from PledgeMusic. I also have some reviews that have come in to share with you as well. I am planning out videos as well!
