I am currently looking for funds to return to the busy world that I lived between 2006-2010. In that time I recorded over 50 releases for the band Robe., a Vamper Whomps Album, three Attics albums, a FLU E.P., a Deep Shiv album, 5 Black Cinema Albums, a Self-Titled release, a full season of the web series dISABLED, close to an hour long short FRACTURE, and over 10 other short films. I also owned a record store that supported local music, was reviewed in Arthur Magazine by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, The Wire Magazine by Byron Coley, Rue Morgue's 100th issue, and 3 issues of Italy's Blow-Up Magazine in Italy one of which was a three page interview spread. The most important thing that happened was that I became a father to a wonderful daughter. I also got married. I sold most of my instruments after the company I worked for went out of business in January of 2010 in hopes of getting enough money to buy inventory for a record store. I did achieve my goal although the record store faltered and closed it's doors. I was in two bands in that time period: The Virgin Spring and Knife In The Water. I never obtained any high quality recordings of theses bands. I was playing on borrowed equipment that was not up to par, and had no recording equipment to do a decent job. Those two bands are virtually lost forever. With rent, bills, food, etc. for my whole family I do not have enough money to buy the most simple equipment I need to create the things I love. The more money I can raise the more music, short films, and artistic achievements I can make. I don't need the best equipment in the world, it doesn't even have to be new. I just would like to get to the point where I was before. I would also like to get back to you what you put in to me.
