Be a part of Mercy, Mercy, the 5th full length studio album from
PJ Anderson

PJ Anderson"I loved working together on my last Kickstarter with you! I enjoyed every aspect from packaging up your rewards and sending them to you to sharing dinner in Nashville with some fans! I loved hearing from you and what you thought about these songs that mean so much to me! So, that's why I'm doing another Kickstarter! Because I'm an extreme extrovert and want you all to be involved with Mercy, Mercy."
