I am very blessed to be surrounded by friends who are smart, talented and just generally amazing. I have made it one of my goals for 2014 to share as many of these lovely people and their gifts with you as I possibly can.
I’m starting with my singer/songwriter/actor/photographer pal D.C. Anderson. I’ve known and admired him for quite a while, in fact, when I lived in Washington, DC he stayed with us while working on a show at the Kennedy Center. To this day he is, quite possibly, my favorite house guest ever. But in addition to his impeccable manners he is passionate, articulate and writes a great song. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking his tunes tell wonderful stories that draw you in and leave you wanting more.
Beyond my love for DC as a performer and singer I have another reason for posting about him today. He’s currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund his next album. He has from now until February 15th to raise the money to produce this project. Please drop by his project page, and if you can, pledge. Since Kickstarter is all or nothing funding if he doesn’t reach his goal by the deadline he gets nothing. Having done a Kickstarter campaign myself I can tell you it can be a nerve wracking experience, and every little bit helps. Those little bits will add up to a wonderful new album being brought into the world. Of this I am certain.
