He is a young artist from the St Louis Missouri area. Funds are tight for him as is the norm with most people now a days, however even so we are working towards trying to raise the capitol needed to get his first full length album recorded. We have been extensively researching different options like Kickstarter or Sellaband among others. I think we are going to take the plunge into Kickstarter after reviewing a lot of posts and things like this because out of everything we’ve researched this seems to be the most legitimate, easy to understand system. If anyone has any feedback, or tips they could offer it would be greately appreciated thanks.

So easy to join and be apart of and so much creative energy cycling around! We had a project funded like I see McKay mentioned and my friend Nathaniel Hansen’ film, “The Elders” was funded and is amazing!

Normally I’m a recording artist – in fact won a Grammy in 2010 for a family cd I put out. But every once in a while I get these crazy ideas. RoXzai was the result of a segment I did for Nickelodeon/Nick jr about rock stacking and wanting my kids faces less glued to screens (web, FB, texts, tv)

Having RoXzai do so well in the first few days has been a kick! I guess there are others like me that want some good old fashioned family fun.

Careful, it’s addictive – so many great projects to support!
