Dear friends and family,

 

I'm trying to make a new album and I'm asking for your help. Please watch the above video and check out the rewards over in the right sidebar.

 

The new album will be called Ellery, which is where I grew up. I've realized that the songs I've written for it are all about home in some way -- they're about the places and people and ideas and endeavors that we belong to.

 

This is the first time I've done a campaign like this, but not at all the first time I've asked for your help. Thank you for the immense support you've given me in these first few years of trying (and trying and trying) to make a life in music.

 

All my best,

 

Max
