A musician who is starting his career again many years after becoming deaf has reached his funding goal on Kickstarter.

Between 1973 and 1982, I recorded my first album of original compositions, saw two songs make the American pop charts, and another make it all the way to #1 in Brazil.

I performed on the stage, composed jingles for national advertising campaigns and a parade theme for Disney. And I was looking at a successful lifetime journey in music and entertainment.

And then it ended – precipitously and painfully. A catastrophic hearing loss made making music, listening to it and even enjoying it impossible for me for the next 30 years.

However, now, with improvements in hearing technology (he uses products from our supporter, Phonak, incidently) Nunnery is set to release new music again.
