Tomorrow I’m headed up to Austin to work on overdubs with Marvin Dykhuis. Man, I can’t wait! This is where the songs start to come alive with the leads and the harmonies added. Once we get everything tracked and all the overdubs finished, that’s when Mixing begins.
That’s where you come in. For everyone who has pre-ordered your copy of my debut CD, THANK YOU! We are well on our way to achieving our goal of $5000.00 which we need to Mix, Master, and Distribute/Promote the CD.
If you have been meaning to do it, but have forgotten or just put it off, there are still six days left before the cutoff, so it is NOT too late. Don’t let this opportunity pass!
A few of you let me know that you tried to participate but had trouble with Kickstarter’s website. If that happens to you, you can make your purchase here using my PayPal button on the right side of the page. I’ll put the money into the Kickstarter campaign for you and you will get the exact same perks and guarantees that you get if you donate on Kickstarter. I have a few cash-backers that I’ve done that for already.
Today I get to thank a lot of new backers. Thank you so much for supporting me! I’m going to do this in the order listed on Kickstarter, so first up is my sister-in-law Jan Fullenwider. Jan is one of my biggest fans. She has been rooting for me since the day I officially became a songwriter. Thank you Jan!
Next is “Magic” Jack McCabe. Magic Jack is one of my friends from the Austin Songwriters Group. He is an incredibly talented songwriter and guitar player. Thank you so much Jack for your support in this.
Then my nephew Walter Samayoa and his beautiful wife Sandy both purchased a copy. They live in Gulfport Mississippi, so I can’t wait to ship those out to them. Thanks y’all! Hug those kids for Uncle Richard!
Then my Sister, Donna Diehl bought THREE copies! Donna gets her name on the CD jacket and a hand-written thank you note which she might actually be able to read because she has experience with my handwriting. Thanks Sis!!
Next up is Lynda Morgensen. Lynda grew up in the Deep South, lived for a while in Indonesia, and now lives in Colorado. She combines artistic influences from all three into a beautiful and interesting style.

Lynda has blown me away with her generous donation. She has purchased TEN copies of my debut CD. In addition to being named as a co-producer she will get a hand written thank-you note, but I will take considerable effort to write slowly and neatly so that she might be able to actually read it. She also gets a house concert, but we will have to work that out being as she lives in Colorado. Perhaps I can talk her into a visit to Texas. Thank you so much Lynda!
And last but in no way least is my friend Peggy Wright from the Austin Songwriters Group. Peggy is an amazing songwriter who needs to start her own kickstarter campaign and get into the studio so she can share her gift with the rest of the world (hint hint). Thanks for your support Peggy, I truly appreciate it.
Well that’s today’s update. Thanks for caring folks. Be sure to get over to my Kickstarter page and purchase your copies of my Debut CD featuring the songs “Fishing Hole”, “Daddy’s Little Girl” and many others. And if you are strapped for cash but you really want to help then please spread the word to your friends and family. I really do appreciate all of your support.
