Crowd Funding A-Go-Go

October 3rd 2013


I have started a crowd funding campaign, via Rocket Hub, to raise money to record and promote me new album. It has been running  for two days and while there haven’t been any huge “angel” type investments, the project is still on target to be overfunded!! This is great news for me, I plan on gently stirring the pot, the whole time the campaign is running to help maintain interest.

I am extremely proud, not only of the songs that are going to be recorded for the album, but of the folks I have gathered to make the record with. I will introduce them to you one at a time, over the next few days. Here is the link for the campaign, give what you can, if you cant give, PLEASE share it. thank you, Ben

Sam GreenSam Green- what can I say about Sam? He’s a great friend, first and foremost. He’s also a tremendous, singer, songwriter, guitarist and lap steel player!! He also makes a mean breakfast, which is gonna come in handy on those long days in the studio! Sam and I met shortly after I got stranded in the UK, he was a resident artist at Proud Camden and that’s what I wanted to be. Eventually I became one and during this time Sam & I hung out a LOT. We talked music, life and everything in between. In short we became friends. I have nothing but the utmost respect for this guy, which is why I want him on my album. Over the past couple years, we’ve toured together and played TONS of music together and it has never been anything but FUN!!! I’m looking forward to working with him and seeing what we can do when we’ve got the time!! You can see what Sam does full time here
