Today is a big day - it's a pivotal moment in this campaign because I have only two weeks to go! This past week I was thrilled to see so many friends come out and hear me play at The Hardware Store with bassist Keith Lowe. It was really fun! I only wish the dinner conversation could have been a bit quieter so that more people could have heard my music. I even received a message on Facebook from a Kickstarter Campaign backer who wrote, "Your voice is too beautiful and your lyrics too intimate for a room full of loud diners! I look forward to hearing your CD in the quiet privacy of home."
Well, this got me to thinking... I should play a house concert! That would be the very best way to hear my music... a beautiful setting, a captive audience, a glass of wine...
So, I'm lowering the pledge amount on my rewards to $500 for house concerts. That way I can play music the way it was meant to be heard, and you can throw an intimate party for your friends where I can entertain you anytime over the next year. I'm really looking forward to it!
In the meantime, I want to say thank you again to everyone who has pledged so far:
