Can't believe it's finally here, but this week is studio week! Had our pre-production practice today and I gotta say, shit sounds TIGHT!!! This is the first time I've had drums and bass to most of these songs, and it just brings everything to life. I really can't express to you guys how excited I am for this, and how blessed I feel to have the opportunity to record and create with the contribution of so many talented folks.
Have also been planning a mini-tour back home to promote my kickstarter. Already got 5 dates booked, and working on a sixth in Boston. It's amazing how much easier it is to book where I am already established (and also, obviously makes total sense) As I move towards my goal of being a touring musician, it's nice to know that I have a solid fan base in at least one part of the country as I work towards establishing another.
The Kickstarter will launch in less than two weeks and as of now everything is pretty set up. Been working on getting the rewards just right.

Not a bad mentality, and certainly in line with my new years resolutio
