SO, I have an ambitious dream"” A NEW ALBUM!"” and I need your help to make it a reality!

I am  currently in the process of self-producing my own Album with the working title, "Varied Shapes & Sharp Angles" and if all goes well I plan to release said album in the summer of 2015 on Bandcamp, I-Tunes and Amazon!

This album is meant to show the variety of musical styles that I write compiled within one Album think in the world of Nick Drake, Laura Marling, Regina Spektor, Stevie Wonder and Jeff Buckley)

Here's where your money is going: I live in NYC, I'm an Artist- classic story right? But in all honesty I would rather be spending my hours making music and art than slinging lattes and serving people in various other ways about the city. I work 3 "survival" jobs to keep myself alive! And though I will undoubtably continue working these jobs for a while still, if I could increase my creative work hourly from $0/hr to even minimum wage I would be happy. Your funding allows me to spend more time working on making this project a reality while still being able to support my already frugal spending habits.

You all have been incredibly supportive thus far and I want to thank you for your continued support! Stay tuned for updates, sneak peaks, and other juicy extras! I can't wait to get this music (and video!) available to you and everyone ASAP! So let's do this thing! 

Anything you can give is deeply appreciated. Any donation, if we can reach our goal, will ensure a free download of the FINAL ALBUM!!



If you didn't know already, a wee bit about me: I currently live in Manhattan, having moved here February 2013, as a Singer-Songwriter and Actor. With my own music I have played shows in Glasgow, Denver, and all around Manhattan including the Rockwood Music Hall (5/11/14 at 4pm) and Pianos NYC! I've also written music for film and animation, notably an animation short produced by Matt Groening of The Simpsons called "Potty Time" (Animation by Heather Collins).

Bay's talent was evident the very first time I was lucky to hear him sing and perform at the Bryan's home - and he just gets better.
