This week's Utah Crowd-Funding project has a right to sing the blues.
Salt Lake City musician John Thomas Draper performs blues and roots music, both classic songs and original compositions, at various venues around Utah — both as a solo artist and, with vocalist Kerry Strazdins, in the duo The Dusty Boxcars.
Draper is making plans to record his first CD. That, of course, takes money for studio time, hiring a producer, and other expenses.
Draper is trying to raise $4,200 via Kickstarter to fund his CD. So far he has raised $1,420 in pledges. The deadline is Sept. 17.
