TROPHY: Full Length Album Launch
I love music. But more than that, I love the way music reaches people – the way it has reached me. My music has changed through injuries and struggles, and I’ve seen it change others over and over. It is an emotional, international language that brings people together. So making music is what I do with my life. And I’m so passionate about bringing that music to the world.
This project is pretty simple. I have dedicated my life to reaching people through music and I want to do this on a worldwide scale. I need your help to do that. After two years of writing and recording with some of the most wonderfully talented people I know, I have completed a 12 song album that is ready for launch. And I’ve just signed a deal with an amazing record label in London that’s ready to make that happen. Please check out everything on this page to learn how you can join us in this mission. Make the pledge and share with us in this exciting adventure!
MAKE A PLEDGE TODAY
Pledge today to help bring this vision to life. My very first full length album, TROPHY, is hot off the press and ready to go, and you’ll receive a digital download as soon as we reach our goal! There is a plethora of rewards to choose from, but I’m especially excited about the Live Acoustic Evening at Harbor Island Yacht Club in Nashville, TN on August 31. I can’t wait to perform for you, and it’s hard to beat live music in that picturesque setting. Other superstar pledges include a sail with yours truly and Captain Passafiume on Old Hickory Lake and a House Concert for you and your friends in YOUR living room!
I am so grateful to have an outstanding and experienced business team working with me right now. Check it out.

We’ve put together a concrete plan and budget of how to best release this album internationally. Here is a list of all the things we need to make this happen. The idea is to hit all of these things at once so they support each other and generate a huge buzz about the music.
The Label – Right Recordings will manufacture and distribute the full-length album TROPHY this summer (tentative date is June/July) and push 3-4 singles to radio over the coming year. It will also cover some promotional expenses and make the record available on iTunes and all major digital outlets at that time, and in physical outlets in the UK (expanding to the US in the fall).
The Artist – We are responsible for other fundamental costs that contribute to the success of the project like travel to the UK, photo shoots, and video shoots before the album can be released, in addition to some promotion after the release.
Radio – Radio is still one of the popular ways for people to listen to and find out about music, especially internationally. We are thrilled that the Music Director of the BBC has already heard our first single and called it “extremely competitive with Taylor Swift and Adele!” So the DJs are waiting for the go-ahead to get this music spinning on the radio. Radio campaigns in the U.S. are even more expensive, so we hope that building a buzz in the UK will spur international attention.
Tour – Our first radio promotion tour of BBC stations in the UK is already booked for September, we just need funding to put me on the ground there to do live interviews. We also have live shows booked in the evenings in September. With enough funding, we can continue that tour throughout the fall and into 2017.
