Look out! I’m finally releasing my second full length solo album this March, titled We Are Alive. It’s been an amazing process, writing eleven original songs, interpreting an Ethiopian classic and an 80s classic and its finally ready for YOU!

We’re doing a PledgeMusic campaign, launched just a few days ago to build this record RIGHT. The theme of the album is simple, as hard as it gets, and as sweet as it gets, We Are Alive. This is not some come-and-go release. No, no, no. It feels like the biggest thing I’ve ever made, and I’m sooooooo proud of how it turned out. Yes indeed.

Unlike other pledge campaigns, the campaign is not so much about raising the funds to record. That’s done. Instead, we are looking to build m-o-m-e-m-t-u-m!!! We’re gathering friends from different corners of our lives, all the folks we’ve met along the way, all the fans who’ve been in our audiences, all the listeners who’ve found us online….. That way, we can tell the world that there’s a tide of supporters out there. Bigger than they realized, and groooooooooowing.

So if you were planning on buying the release at some point, do it now!!!!! You are part of this crazy journey. May the music fly!!!

And sometimes spreading the word is the best thing you can possibly do. Share away, my dear ones!
