Pledge Music Project - The Heart & Soul Concert Series & Documentary

What is this Pledge Music thing you keep talking about?

Good question. I’ve had a few people ask for some clarity on the Pledge Music Project I put together, so let’s see if this can simplify it a bit for you:

The Project I’ve created is to fund a tour of house shows in Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, which is to take place the last week of September. While I’m on tour, with my best friend and manager Jessicca, we’re going to film each of the shows and turn the tour into a documentary that we release to all of you who fund the tour. I’m calling this series of shows, The Heart & Soul Concert Series. The title will connect exclusively with all house shows that we do from here on out.

What’s a house show?

It’s exactly what the title implies. A show in someones house. Most people equate this to a house party. It’s kind of that, but the focus is on introducing your friends and family to a new artist and their music. The idea is that the artist shows up and puts on an acoustic show in your living room, kitchen, backyard, office, club house...something of that nature...and gets to not only share the stories behind the songs on a more intimate level, but they get to connect with the new fans on a personal level, hearing their stories, what spoke to them and it creates a chance to get to know them. Imagine if you had gotten to do that with the Beatles, Johnny Cash, or Sheryl Crow? They played in people’s homes long before they became the household names they are today.

What do I get if I “pledge?”

It really depends on how much you pledge. At minimum you get a digital download of the documentary, plus exclusive updates on how prep for the tour is coming along. Check out the pledge page to see what other kinds of incredimazing rewards there are to be had!

The most exciting part of this for me, is that once we are funded through the pledge music project page, 50% of everything that gets pledged above and beyond our goal will be donated to Not For Sale, an anti-human trafficking organization.

Please take a look at the page and pledge! HEART & SOUL I’d love to have you be a part of the tour, a part of the documentary we make on tour, and to parade my thanks to you in front of everyone I can. :)

Until Next Time,

Take Care of Your Hearts & Ears
