I'm making my very first album

53676864_160964170645764_r.jpegIf you donate, your name will be in the credits of my first album. In 2021, I will be making my first album.  I will be going to Rio Grande Studios in Albuquerque, New Mexico and working with Ken Riley, a great engineer and friend of mine. I've always recorded my own music at home so this will be an entirely new experience for me to work in a professional recording studio. This first picture is from my experience at Zeptepland where I recorded demos for my album which is featured in my GoFundMe video.
53676864_1609642259819958_r.jpegNew Mexico is a special place to me.  Ken has been an incredible person to me, my brother and the rest of Albuquerque.  If anyone has ever met him, you'd understand why I chose him to producer and engineer my album.  This picture a time I went to help my brother James record an album.
53676864_1609642782555000_r.jpegWhen I last went to Albuquerque, I went to the balloon fiesta with my girlfriend and met up with Ken. We talked about my songwriting goal in 2019 where I wrote 170 songs. The best 10-15 songs from this bunch will be on my very first album.  This is how the money donated will be used.
1. Recording $1000
2. Mixing/Mastering $1000
3. Gas $250
4. Lodging $400
5. Digital Distribution $70
6. Vinyl Distribution $1,200
