Asking for help is hard <<
I grew up with a very strong work ethic in my family. I was also told that I could do anything I set my mind to. This instilled in me an "I can do it myself" attitude. And while that still FEELS true, I've come to realize that as an independent musician I am really dependent on people buying CD's or making a donation to make up for the losses I've been taking makin' music.

Bandwidth costs, CD-duplication, travel to Florida for the election, hosting fees are part of the equation. Another part is the amount of time it takes to be an artist. There's a reason why most artists are dirt poor - it takes a lot of time to work on the art. And there's a reason why artists are important, too.

Don't get me wrong - It's been worth every penny, to be sure. A million people have heard my song and that amazes me. But a million smiles (or tears) don't pay the rent. Being an activist is really satisfying work, AND not nearly as lucrative as my former corporate jobs.

And without having a big record company to pay me an advance and promote my music, I'm doing it all myself. To be honest, I need your help. All I'm asking for is some consideration. Even a nice note in my fanbook goes a long way.

Thanks for reading this. It was hard to write, but I'm learning that sometimes you gotta just say what's so and then let it go.

Here are three ways you can support what I'm up to:
Buy music Make a donation Get some merchandise
