"Fund My Grandpa"

I'm really excited & frustrated at the same time. By self-funding my latest musical project - along with the generosity of talented friends - it's taken nearly two years to get 13 songs in the can. If you like the Grape, you'll like this music. Peter Lewis & his daughter, Arwen, Jerry Miller, & Skip Spence's son, Omar, are all on this album. There are two tracks where Burton Cummings joins me - & that was fun! Great friends from Toronto's music scene - like Julie Long, Fergus Hambleton, Elana Harte, & multi-talented Tim Bovaconti - all contribute to this project. Dane Clark, John Mellancamp's drummer, is producing the album. I love this guy. He's produced an unreleased Moby Grape album that's amazing! So, I'm in the homestretch with my own album. I need to lay down one more track, arrange the cover art,  set up the pressing for CDs, and mix the album ... In the grand tradition of Shakespeare, Mozart, & Jerry Miller my art needs a few patrons. Contribute what you can & please hit share ... Thanks.

There are 3 contribution levels, & each offers a token of my appreciation ...

If you donate $20+ you will receive an autographed copy of my first album, King of Fools (while supplies last).

If you donate $35+ you will receive an autographed copy of King of Fools and my new album, Buskin' in the Subway.

If you donate $50+ you will receive both albums plus a thank you credit in my new album's liner notes (if I run out of my first album you will get two copies of my second album).

If you donate $100+ you will receive credit as an executive producer, in addition to $35 bonuses.
