No longer on Matador, and just wanting to get a damned record out, I'm taking it straight to you and asking for your help. I've been making music for a long time, and I've been lucky to have had access to such an amazing and engaged group of followers over the years. I want to be able to offer what I have to offer beyond industry constraints that I don't need to be constrained by, and not beholden to industry concerns that aren't my concerns. It wasn't initially the most obvious choice for me, but I've really come to believe Kickstarter is the right tool at the right time, for me, to hopefully enable myself to keep WORKING and producing. I'm talking about achieving autonomy via the support of the community, and I'm very excited for the future it portends.
