Hi Everyone!

After many years of hard work, I finally have representatives of artists like Tim McGraw, Ronnie Milsap, John Michael Montgomery, Leanne Rimes, Lonestar and many more expressing significant interest in recording my songs. However, moving forward, it's become clear that in order to compete with the best writers in the world I am going to need to record my demos in a more professional way. 

The awesome news is Grammy Nominated producer Jim Salamone has agreed to oversee the production of a new CD project that will accomplish this. Jim has worked with top artists like Bon Jovi, Vanessa Williams, Teddy Pendergrass and he uses some of the top studio musicians in our industry....so we're certainly in good hands.

I hope you will consider helping make this happen by pre-purchasing the CD or donating.  
So far my friends, family and fans have raised over $6,500 to help me pay for this ....but I still need to raise another $2,500. 

You can donate in any increment you want: $1....$5....$50...$100....$1,000 whatever you can afford would be a huge help.

Love and Thanks,  Sol

Hi Everyone,

Thanks again for your help with my CD.

Now that it's finished, I'm so excited to send it to you!!!

I had promised posters and t-shirts to several of the higher donor levels...but have been unable to secure the proper sponsorship. I am still trying, but in the meantime would like to send out the CD's.

For those of you who donated at the higher levels...and were hoping to get a t-shirt and/or poster....please let me know if you still want one. If enough of you really want them....I will continue to work on it. If you would prefer more CD's instead let me know that as well.

I don't want anyone to feel shafted. :-)

Also....for many of you I do not have your mailing addresses. Could everyone PLEASE respond ASAP with your full name and address you would like me to ship your CD(s) to?

Thanks!

Sol

HI Everyone,

Just a quick note to tell you that the mixing and mastering for my new CD, called "Sea Change", is completed. The files are now in the hands of "Discmakers" in Pennsauken, NJ. They will be creating 1000 cd's for me. I will be picking them up on Friday May 31st!

Here is the CD cover. Photos by my good buddy Denny Morris at www.cminusimages.com....and design by my stepson, Brandon Watkins and his girlfriend, Maddie Matthews. They are both graphic arts majors in college.

My first CD release party will be at Annabella's Italian Restaurant on Savannah Rd in Lewes, DE on Sunday June 2, 2013. Seating begins at 5:30pm. Since there is limited room...please reserve your seats right away by calling 302-645-1980. The food is outstanding and the prices are low...so make sure you arrive hungry!

If you would like to get a head start and purchase the CD now...click on www.SolKnopf.com/store.cfm

Much Love, Sol

Sol, You are almost there and I know that you will be successful. It is a noble creation full of blood sweat and tears but then that is what makes creative people endure Can't wait to hear the final project. I am working on a book and painting and hoping that I can get ready for another show.

I just wanted to thank all of you for being so generous. I am humbled by your love and support. There's a long way to go. But we have already reached 8% of the goal in just a few days. Your support has given me optimism and has reinforced my belief that this goal can be achieved. Can't thank you enough! Love, Sol
