Happy Fall, Friends!
I am proud to say that I am partnering with a brand new tech start-up company called Loudfund (http://loudfund.com/#fans) to fund my next record release (expect said record in the Spring of 2015). Not only am I stoked to create another group of tunes for your beautiful ears, but I am very, VERY impressed by Loudfund’s brilliant new method of raising capital. (it’s similar to PledgeMusic and Kickstarter but much cooler).
This is an unprecedented way of giving you folks -the fans and listeners- a chance to partner with me, or any other Loudfund artist. They do this by literally offering royalties to the fans. That’s right! FYI a Royalty is kinda like buying stock in a company. A royalty payment is made to the legal owner of a property, patent, copyrighted work or franchise by those who wish to make use of it. Meaning, if you chose to, you can own a portion of my next record and depending on how successful the record is (how many digital downloads it gets) you’ll receive payments for your “stock” in the project!
One thing I love about this new model is that I can offer even more value to you, my wonderful listening audience. To think that not only can you help finance a record project, but actually recoup the monies you’ve invested plus some, and also have a record that will warm your soul for all time (or at least a week or two). But seriously, it’s kinda a win, win… win, to quote Michael Scott.
There are other rewards as well, including advance music, shirts, house shows, etc., to anyone that helps fund the record. The royalty piece is currently only available to Georgia residents but the laws are changing nationwide and hopefully we can include everyone by the time we launch our campaign.

Until then, though, I have more news to share – including a free download of a previously unreleased song. Keep on reading, and please… keep on listening!
