The Gospel Accordion To Bob Rice

20130607-201541.jpgFriends, I’m proud to announce my newest CD: The Gospel Accordion To Bob Rice. Or at least I’d like to announce the idea of it.

It doesn’t yet exist. I was planning on recording it a few months ago, but then the medical bills came in. Some were for good reasons (new baby girl Rice arriving July 15th. Hooray!) Some, not so good (Bobby broke his femur and requires additional surgeries. Ack!)

So I asked The Lord what to do about this lack of money/desire to record a new CD. And I decided to put the project on Kickstarter.

For those of you who don’t know that that is, Kickstarter is a website where I can raise money for this project. I need $9000 to make the CD. If I can raise it, I can do it. But if I can’t raise all of it I don’t get any of it. The Kickstarter fundraising ends July 31st, so that’s how much time I have to do it, if it’s going to happen at all.

I planned on doing this over June and July because I’m in front of a lot of people through the Steubenville Summer Conferences. But unfortunately, I only recently found out that Franciscan has a policy of not announcing any fundraising efforts from the stage (I totally understand why.) So for those of you who wondered why I didn’t say something about it at the conference… well, now you know.

I feel very peaceful about this. If it happens, that will be great. But if it doesn’t, that’s also cool. I think there’s some pretty cool tunes that will end up on it… but do you want to hear any of them?

If you do, CLICK HERE TO GO TO MY KICKSTARTER PAGE. There’s more information about the CD, and I’ll also be adding demos of the music as I make them.

Thanks for your help and your prayers!
