Help me crowdfund my new album

In the beginning, there was an enchantment and a bold idea. In 2017, I became friends with a gentleman from Germany who owns a collection of old instruments. He is a musician and luthier too so the uniqueness of the collection is also in the great playability of all guitars.  I’ve never been a gear … Read moreHelp me crowdfund my new album
