Do you know Phil Madeira? You should. He’s the force behind Mercyland: Hymns For The Rest Of Us, has played with some of music’s finest performers from Emmylou Harris to Terry Scott Taylor, and has just announced a new project being funded via Kickstarter — a new solo disc titled P.M. (his initials, of course).

Unlike many Kickstarter projects, Madeira’s catalogue of pledge premiums is insane, from a humble digital download of the new record, through many guitars from his personal collection, all the way up to a private recording session with the man himself. You probably can’t afford that one.

Suffice it to say Mr. Phil is a national treasure…the nation just doesn’t know it yet. However, you could do far worse with some of your holiday money than making a small investment to Madeira’s Kickstarter campaign. Check out more at:
