Week one of recording “The Acceptance of And” is in the books!
A huge thank you to Jordan Richter at Room 13 Recording Services, Alex (drums and percussion), Ben (bass, keys, viola, other stuff), Lewi (guitars), Paul (guitars and pedal steel), Dave (ideas, demos, 2nd engineering), and especially to everyone who donated or shared updates to try to get the word out.
I’m really excited for you all to hear the record.
Next up, I will listen through everything we did, continue producing, and then will come back to Portland to finish the record in late January.
Things are going great here at Room 13 with Jordan Richter and the band he brought in, Alex, Lewi, Paul, and Ben!
To those who have helped with the financing so far, thank you! For those who have not gotten in yet, there’s still two days to get in on the rewards for helping us make this record–
Thanks to YOU, we made it! The IndieGoGo fundraising campaign for “The Acceptance of And” has reached and exceeded our goal!
Now, on to the stretch goals–we have one week left in the campaign, and here are some stretch goals we’d love to reach.
$5,000 over the original goal, and we’ll do a concert of the songs from the new record front to back, and stream it so everyone can attend.
$10,000 over the original goal, and we’ll do a video for one of the new songs.
$15,000 over, and we’ll do a limited show run with a full band.

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for getting to the goal with “The Acceptance of And” crowdfunding campaign.
There are some great stretch goals you can check out in the campaign, here:
This tour leg we were in Dallas, Denison, Valley Center, Nowata, Ft. Scott, and St. Peters. We got to connect with several old friends, and met some new ones. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows.
Next up is Indiana and Wisconsin. See the schedule page for specifics.
Up next we’re in Pueblo, Bueno Vista, and Longmont Colorado, Hinton, OK, and Valley Center, Kansas. To see the dates and add them to your google calendar, go to the concerts page. Looking forward to seeing you if you are near these shows!
Hey everyone! A brand new site, and a brand new video for the song “In Other Words”. Thanks for checking it out. We’ll be blogging from tour and recording sessions as things happen, and will also occasionally post for no good reason at all.
Six days until the Morton, IL Concert on August 9th! This is the concert that is being filmed and will result in a DVD, etc. It’d be so cool if a lot of you came! I have heard from a number of friends and supporters who are making the trip…along with a number of friends and supporters from Illinois planning to attend.
- The first 100 people through the door will receive a copy of the filmed concert for free!
- The next 100 folks will be able to order it that night at 50% off.
- It will be available for everyone in attendance to order that night.
- Come be a part of this event! You could end up on screen and be a star!
- Also, a bundle of my CDs, posters, and T-shirt will be given away.
- Location: Bertha Frank Performing Arts Center, 350 N Illinois Ave, Morton IL, 6pm
Support for The Grey (When Black & White Fade) has been wonderful and is still coming in! The budget has been met, yet the continued pledges are making the album better and better. Because of your givingness, The Grey (When Black & White Fade) will now have an extra song on it…a total of 11 songs. And heightened promotional efforts, increased touring, and music videos are now becoming more and more of a possibility. The cut-off date to get your name listed in the credits of The Grey (When Black & White Fade) has been extended to September 8. For the rest of the kickstarter campaign, you will be able to make a pledge that gets your name listed as a production assistant, an executive producer, an ecclesiastical administrator, an artistic supporter, or a performance facilitator. It was my goal to not put a limit on everyone’s opportunity to be a part of this. Together, we are making something good! I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you!
The basics have begun…and I still need your help in reaching the ultimate goal After just ten days, The Grey (When Black & White Fade)’s initial goal of $9000 has been met. I am excited that the album will, in fact, happen. With the new assurance, I recently just finished up the beginning stages of recording work. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of so many. I am never surprised by your giving. We have partnered in the past…and it continues. I still need your help. The initial goal was set lower than the album’s actual budget. This was done in hopes that the goal would be reached and The Grey (When Black & White Fade) would receive “some” funding. This has happened, and the process is well under way!
