 Hi & thanks for dropping by!

My extreme gratitude for your interest & generous support; despite the Kickstarter campaign not reaching its funding goal, I'm ELATED to announce that some extravagant contributions have since come in and with the Kickstarter backers who stuck with me, the project is officially ON!

To say that I'm excited is a huge understatement.  My first new music since 2009's Tea In The Typhoon is also my most ambitious project yet and will tentatively feature iconic players including Gregg Bissonette, Vinnie Colaiuta, Chris Coleman, Lincoln Brewster, and many others!

As you can see, there's still a bit further to go to reach full funding.  I'd be honored if you would consider partnering with me.

To make it as simple & quick as possible, here's a PayPal button to back the project & receive the corresponding backer reward:

 

 

If you have any questions, please fill out the below & I’ll be in touch asap, ok?

My profuse thanks for your support.  Let’s make some music together! 

Blessings- Norm

P.S.  YES, I will still honor all backer rewards as outlined in the original Kickstarter campaign (see right column - many prices have been reduced)!  :^)
