Kickstarter Success!

Oh my goodness. We did it! All of us. Together. Almost 500 people backed the Kickstarter. More than I ever imagined. I feel incredibly moved by your outpouring of support, enthusiasm and belief in this project.

I look forward to sharing the record-making process with you and will be in touch soon with news, updates and sneak previews. In the meantime, I’m going to unplug for a little bit, take my kids to the park, have a nap and try to savour and celebrate this incredible thing we did. Hope you do too!

With immense gratitude,

J

Just a quick note to say that I’ll be playing three locals shows in the next week.
