Can I propose my own package and donation amount?
Yes, you can. We're happy to hear from you on creative ways to make sponsoring this project of value to you!Why did you choose to support the NYC Yoga Project?
I've been so inspired by friend and founder of NYC Yoga Project, Dawn Rizzo, and wanted to find a way to be involved in the project from where ever I am.
NYC Yoga Project (501c3) is an organization created to empower kids and other underserved New Yorkers with access to yoga, coaching and programming to help them create possibility in their lives.
Beneficiaries of the program’s services learn about yoga and stress coping skills, but also get tools to help them make strong choices and take charge of their own destinies for a brighter future. To learn more, visit www.nycyogaproject.org

I'm recording at Crystall Recorders Studio in Lombard, IL with Bryan Clavey as engineer, and multi-instrumentalist / arranging phenom (and my Producer), Paul Mutzabaugh.
I found these guys by sheer luck when in Chicago-land for business and wanting to capture a new tune. I was stunned by their talents and loved the collaborative process of working with them and decided on the SPOT that it was time to make the next record with this particular team.Will any of the songs feature acoustic guitar & voice, like your live shows?
Some, yes. Others will feature more instrumentation, but only that which supports the lyric and arrangement in painting the emotional soundscape we intend.Are you going to tour in support of this record?
Yep! I'll be launching a limited date tour with the band. Stay tuned for those dates.What are you spending money on?** GoFundMe + WePay Fees
