I just got back to London from my tour in the NW of the US and the showcase I played in New Orleans. It was an absolutely amazing experience, and a lot of exciting things have come of it, some of which I hope to be able to share with you soon! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support me and my music - I had such a blast.
As most of you know, I am working on a new album, which is likely to cost well over $10,000 for studio, musician, and producer costs. I was able to record my first album, ‘Another City’, very inexpensively by recording in the middle of the night, and with the help of many friends from Berklee College of Music. This time, I don’t have those resources at my disposal, and I need your help!
So… I’m using a site called Pledge Music, where you can preorder the new CD, or choose from a menu of other things I thought you might like. You can just donate if you prefer! When you order any of these items, you will get a copy of the new CD when it’s done, as well as access to exclusive updates, videos, and songs that I’ll be posting throughout the process. You do need to create a user account, but the site is secure and your credit card won’t be charged until the project has reached it’s target. There’s a video on the project page explaining the concept:

I am so excited to share these new songs with you, and I hope that you will take the time to check out my project on Pledge Music. I could not continue to make music if it weren’t for your support over the years — I can’t thank you enough! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
See a live video of my new song ‘If You Don’t Know’ (featuring old bandmates Wes and Asha!) by clicking here.
For Londoners, my first show back in town is at the Slaughtered Lamb next Wednesday, Sept. 8th, with long-time friend Annie & the Beekeepers.
Thank you so much!
