When I was discovering music for the first time, Michael McGlynn worked at the music store up the road, where I would spend hours marvelling over guitars and bugging the employees about music gear.
Nearly two decades later, I've been lucky enough to travel around the world - playing, singing, writing, performing - and he's become an ARIA Award-nomiated Producer with his own studio, Vienna People.
We're excited to work together on my first full-length album release, but we need your help to make it happen!
I've put all of myself into this project - I want to share everything about the record with you, invite you into my life as much as possible, and hopefully create something that can be cherished - exciting - thought-provoking. A joyous and positive thing, for as many people as possible.
If you're reading this, chances are we've met somewhere on a street corner, in a mall, at a bar, by a stage - and had a beautiful exchange. One that has had a special place in my heart for a decade now.
A little energy from my music to your heart, and a little energy in return from your pocket that has helped me continue to travel, write, learn, grow, and most importantly; let me continue to make music as my life's purpose.
Please consider sharing that exchange with me again, here on Pozible, today.
Help me make this album - I hope that the music that comes out of it brings you all the joy, love and peace that I intend it with.

There are a tonne of rewards for helping me make this dream a reality!
From signed copies of the album, handwritten letters and skype shows - all the way up to my own loop station, my first acoustic guitar, a show at your house, even building your very own custom electric guitar at my place!
You can even become an executive producer (including a percentage of royalties - actual part-ownership)
