Papa to us all, Mitch Chakour is turned 60 this year!

If you are reading this, you already know what an inspiration he is and how much he gives of himself to the ones he loves. We're sure you also know what a musical powerhouse he is... So, to usher in this new decade, we want to help him add to his musical legacy by producing the best possible 7" record we can!

Already lined up and ready to go is one of the finest studios in New York and a beautiful crew of musical friends and family who specialize in that gritty, soulful playing that will bring out the best in Mitch's rocking, bluesy, gospel/folk sound. We can't think of a better present for this guy, and we hope you agree! It will be a present for us all!

If you can give ANYTHING ($5, $500, 5 cents) towards this birthday gift, we know you won't regret it. :) As a thank you, all gifters will receive a copy once the record is complete.

Sending so much love and gratitude to you all!

Wanted to let you all know that although nearly 2 years have flown by, our gratitude for your generosity and excitement for this project has never left our minds and focus. Can't wait to FINALLY share the music with you... :)

The cats out of the bag!

Through online and independent donations we are a third of the way there and thought it would be a great time to tell him about all the love coming his way. He was completely overwhelmed by this incredible wave of support, so lets keep it going!

Time to share online and keep spreading the word. Thank you everyone for your incredible generosity.
