Hey Reader,

I hope this newsletter finds you well!

I figure it’s time to get this thing up and running. So here we are. First off THANK YOU SO MUCH for joining my email list, whether you submitted through my bio link on social media, or put your email in when you tipped me at a show, I am thankful you are here and hopefully my emails are welcome in your inbox ;).

After over a year of writing, revising, and perfecting, I’m thrilled to announce that I have completed what I believe to be the best group of songs I’ve ever written. I’m more excited than I’ve ever been to bring these songs to life in the studio, and do right by these songs by giving them the best possible chance at success that I can with an incredible producer and the highest quality production I can get my hands on - but in order to do that, I need your help!

Producing an album is an expensive process, from studio time to hiring additional musicians, mixing and mastering the tracks, creating album art, and distributing the final product. As an independent artist, I can’t do it without the support of my biggest fans.

That’s why I'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production and distribution of the new album. For as little as $10, you’ll get early access to some of the new songs before the album is released to the public. At higher levels, there are additional exclusive perks like signed albums, Song charts with handwritten notes from the studio, a private writing session, a one-of-a-kind disposable camera loaded with pics from the recording sessions, get your name in the album credits, an in-person House show, and more!

The Kickstarter will launch in the coming weeks so stay tuned for a launch date, as well as an opportunity to pre-register for the launch. Every dollar makes a difference in being able to share this work that I’ve poured my heart and soul into.

Allow me to be super real with you for a sec and tell you that I am absolutely terrified. But I feel like I have to do this. I’m not sure I’ve ever really given it my all and poured my heart and soul into music before, and I’ve always fallen back into security like stable jobs that felt safe, going through the motions and not taking risks, all while ignoring the truths buried deep down. But these songs I’ve written have helped me to heal from past wounds, reveal the inner narrative I’ve been allowing myself to believe that tells me I’m not good enough to call myself an artist, or that I could never really make my dream a reality, and these songs have empowered me to jump in the deep end and see what happens. So I'm doing just that. I hope you’re with me!

Thank you all for your continued support and encouragement over the years. I couldn’t do any of this without you. You inspire me to keep creating and pushing myself as an artist. Let’s make this album a reality together!

- Cody
