RocketHub CD Fundraising Campaign!

27 March 2013


Hi all!

I am working with a company based out of Toronto called Indiepool to get a small EP released of my jazz demo and live performances at The Jazz Room. My intent with these CDs is to do a small run and distribute them for promotional purposes (booking managers of venues, radio stations, jazz festivals, etc). Since I am a performer of jazz standards, obtaining licenses to release this CD legally is proving to be quite expensive. So, I am asking for the support of my fans as I undertake this project. As of last night, a RocketHub CD Fundraising Campaign is in effect. For one month, you can donate to this campaign through RocketHub.com. ANY donation amount is appreciated, since every amount helps!! Help support live jazz and local artists, and let’s make this happen!
