Donnie Wayne Smith album (preorder)

I've recently spent a bunch of time in the studio, while taking a break from the tours (Winger, Voodoo Union & Brian Howe), and ideas are flowing like crazy. I have enough gear to record demos at home, but not a finished product.

Everyone has a dream, and what I am offering to you is to be a part of mine. What I would like to do is allow friends, fans and family the chance to pre-order my album. It will have anywhere from 8 to 15 songs, depending on my muse, and there will be no predetermined genre or style-- whatever flows out, which could be country, heavy-metal, hard-core gansta polka... one never knows (right now it's all coming out seriously headbangin').  Check out "She's so Evil" on I-tunes.

 As of now, world-famous drummer Scotty T. (Trammel) has agreed to work on the album, which I'm super excited about. He just finished the first couple of drum tracks for me and they are AMAZING! He also mixed "She's so Evil" for me. Other expenses  and musicians will pop up down the road, including copyrighting the album and printing, duplicating and packaging CDs.

Donations are welcome, but in order to be a part of my dream, I’d really love for you to purchase the finished product. I want it to be special to you because you helped make it happen. There are different purchase levels for different donation amounts, whichever is of interest to you.

Thank you in advance for your time, consideration and help. You've all been so kind and supportive over the years watchgin me grow as a musician. I know this project is going to be a labor-of-love. Most importantly it will be my gift back to you. I look forward to sharing my music with all of you. Everyone will receive updates through e-mails and videos, and don’t be surprised if I occasionally put some snippets up for your listening pleasure.

Working title for the album: Victim for Hire
