For those of you not familure with Kickstarter, it is home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since our launch in 2009,5.8 million people have pledged $1 billion, funding58,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now. Kickstarter allows the people who make stuff fund their projects straight from the public.
The best part of this process is you can donate a lot and get some cool perks, like a private concert, or you can just donate $10 and get a digitel copy of the album when it is ready. There are other perks like seats at a private release party, tee-shirts, and even beer coozies. But the cool part abotu this is every little bit helps. I'm not getting paid to write this, I already donated to I could get the physical album. I think Jo is a great guy that writes great tunes and that is something I want to support and promote. Even if you aren't going to donate, check out one of the new tracks, "Wheels."

Thanks for reading this. I hope you liked the music. I really want to see this album get made the way Joe wants it to get made. $10 is not that much for an album. I have heard a few of songs that are going to be on the album while sitting around the camp fire and can tell you they are something special. Plus once he gets it made he should have some open time to go fishing with me. Even if you decided not to donate thanks for reading and checking out Joe's music.
