Dearest Worthy One:

Thanks to your in-crowd contributions I’ve finally  been able to book 6 mornings of studio time  in June to record vocal tracks for my album of new songs at Fourth Street Recording in downtown Santa Monica, CA.

GoFundMe

 Fourth Street was built  back in the 1970’s, its acoustics designed by the same team that built the famous Henson Studios, its useful  array of  vintage gear still maintained alongside a state-of-the-art API console.  The tiny room has hosted its share of recording legends  (including Little Richard and the Beach Boys) and more recently has served as a nurturing  spring board for numerous artists who subsequently went platinum (including Fiona Apple).

My final decision to go with  4th Street in Santa Monica  is based on the warmth of the studio and the enthusiasm with which my prior work was received by the owner and personnel, as well as the reasonable  terms to which I agreed, far better than I’d been offered elsewhere, even when considering the added expense of travel and lodging. (I’ve reserved a dormitory bunk at a nearby hostel with a communal kitchen where I can cook up a light dinner at the end of my day.)

GoFundMe

So it does look promising that this album of song, conceived in  early 2014, may see the light of day this year.  Good progress has been made with your help along the way. Yet, I am by no means finished  my perilous journey. Significant challenges still lay ahead.  Gone are the days when an indie artist like myself could turn to investors to procure funds, even with a critically acclaimed discography under his belt. That’s why I continue to ask for your support to help make this process work  properly, and produce worthwhile, lasting results.

Your contributions make all the difference. However  small, your gift becomes part of the whole beautiful picture.  You may think you’ve not that much to give, so why bother? But when you act, your contribution takes on a “super life”.  It becomes bigger  as it empowers creation in this worthy recording of song, an enduring  art that crosses generations.  You become a participant in this musical culture, keeping the  soul of the arts alive through the ages, for years and ears yet unborn.

GoFundMe

I’ve put some perks together to show my  gratitude for your continued support. You can chose your level  of participation and your efforts will be recognized.  If you want some special consideration,  please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your desire.

I’m constantly trying to minimize my costs while being true to best practice  recording standards, and getting the best real deal available. With your help, it gets done.
