Welcome to our CD project page of TS and the country magic where singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has spent most of his life with music and entertaining people.

Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues and Music Lovers,

I am excited to have the opportunity to share this campaign with you, designed to contribute to the production of my latest CD project.

The ambition is to finally get to record and release a selection of my arrangements and compositions from a prolific output that I've accumulated over many years. It will involve producing 2 CDs: One with my solo Rythme guitar and another with my trio including Guitar, Hamonica, Lead guitar, Drums and Upright Bass.

I will covet having your support in all ways. I will thrive creatively on having your emotional support and will run an efficient and very modest production successfully with your donations of any kind, large or small.

What makes this project so personal and important to me is the repertoire, the arrangements and formats. I have been attempting to meticulously craft these arrangements of standards by the American Songwriters and Country-Rock Composers for many years now. As many of you know, I have a passion for respectfully revamping and rearranging songs that Country listeners love, with lush harmonies, counterpoint, vital rhythms and etherial textures. They are my "signature". I aspire to help elongate the vitality of these songs for all, inspired by the joy they have brought me.

As many of you know, I've had a personal "passion" for pursuing the art of unaccompanied solo guitar. Over the last several years, I've been really touched by the positive responses and support I've received for my solo arrangements/videos on You Tube/Facebook from around the world. I've had many requests for a CD and for transcriptions!

The trio project features. Ian Scott on Hamonica, David McGuire on Lead Guitar. all have extensive credentials as leaders/composers and as sidemen/accompanists. Proportional to their vast abilities, they are relatively "TS and the CountryMagic". I am dazzled by their ability to consistently bring such deep concentration and clarity to the challenging written music yet such exciting creativity and personality to the improvised areas. While I respect and covet their professionalism, I draw inspiration from their integrity, support and modesty. This group defies some typical musical conventions because we feature all the instruments playing lush chordal harmonies together and the trio playing an array of challenging rhythms and tempos without the presence of a drummer. I've been excited to see/hear my arrangements of standards and original compositions come to "life!".

I am eager to share all the inspiration-infused music I've been working on and to bring my recorded body of work up to date.

To have your support would be nothing short of amazing and inspiring! To honor and meet it with thanks, I have created several "incentives" which include donors obtaining CD copies, sheet music, guitar lessons, invitations to one of the recording dates, or being able to book my solo guitar playing at your personal, school or office/business events. I'm open to hearing about other musical incentives that interest you!

The two trio sessions are scheduled for May 8th and 9th at Gbass recording Studio.

The two solo sessions are scheduled for May 4th and 5th at Jar of Meraki.

The funds raised will help cover the bulk of the costs incurred from recording, editing, mixing, then designing and reproducing the CDs. I would be most grateful for receiving your donations as soon as possible or certainly before the said dates. (figits shown)
