Welcome to the ArtistShare Gold Participant Offer! By participating at this level you will be playing an enormous part in the creation of this album imagining the house band aboard the Alcoa steamships, cruising from New Orleans through the Caribbean in the 1950s. In addition to everything offered to Bronze Participants, including prominent credit listing in the album artwork, a narrated listening guide, monthly video updates and downloads.
Additionally, ArtistShare Gold Participants will receive a composition or track dedication on the album, along with an original manuscript from the recording session.
Offered to Gold participants will be an autographed book of sheet music and lead sheets used at the recording session. Follow along with the record, or bring these songs in to play with your band! Let’s spread this music around for everyone to hear - it’s easy to love!
Also included is your own private 45 minute virtual concert, where you choose the music and we perform it for you from a studio here in New Orleans direct to your home. We can play stump the band, perform standard New Orleans repertoire, pick numbers from my earlier recordings, or give you a preview of music from the new album.
I’d also love to invite you to a private Zoom album listening party to thank you and share the record with you in real time. We can chat about the recording process, the personnel on the album, performing in New Orleans - you name it!
We’ll have the signed CD in the mail to you as soon as we receive them from the printer. As we work on this project together, I’m looking forward to sharing my creative process with you through exclusive videos, photos, downloads, and of course, keeping everybody updated on the status of the album as we get into rehearsals, recording, and post production, all made possible by your generous support! All aboard!
