We are excited to announce the launching of our Kickstarter Campaign to help us make our new CD, “New Frontier”. Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. Every week, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields. In exchange for participation with our Kickstarter we have created lots of very fun and unique Rewards to reward you for your generosity so you can find the level and reward that is right for you and be part of the creative process!! Go here for more info.
We’ve been working hard to bring these new tunes to life. We’re headed to a “New Frontier”. We hope you will come along with us!
I’ve been playing music since I was a kid, and I’ve had the amazing experience of having you all right there with me, rooting for me, encouraging me to see how far it could go. Lately, I’ve found myself back at the well and dipping in. I have spent some time woodshedding, searching, and digging. I’ve been digging in my garden, digging in my music and digging in my soul, trying to define that indescribable “thing” that drives us all to do what we do.
For me the “thing” is music, and as many of you may know my life until the last few years revolved mostly around the acoustic bass- but along this fantastic journey I realized that I could stretch myself even further- explore boundaries that I didn’t even know existed until recently.
That’s one of the reasons that I struck out on my own and started my band, The New Hip. It seems that the more exploring I do, the more of my own boundaries that I push, the more I know without a doubt that this is what I’m supposed to be doing. Not just playing music, but reaching and broadening my scope, stretching my comfort zone, and allowing myself to create sounds that I love without thought (or worry) to where it all might fit in this world.
