My vision for Peacemaker is a rock album inspired and influenced by Native American music and art. It is an artful blend of cultures, an expression of the present and the past, as well as of the timeless beauty of nature. Music is a medium for communicating emotion. What Peacemaker will express is a deep love for humanity, including respect for women, and a sacred appreciation for the Native American culture.
The goal of this project is to produce an EP Album with 5 songs, or a full album with 10 songs if the goal amount is exceeded. I have worked with a lot of other people over the years, and now I am inspired to produce my own work of art.

Where will the money go?
My main goal is to raise $7,000 for a 5 song album, but there’s much more I’d like to do if I can get funded for it! With $12,000 I can produce a 10 song album, including several songs with original lyrics. The more I’m funded for, the more creative content I can add to the album, including new songs and enhanced effects and mastering.
Here’s what I’ll offer you for your support:
