This is to raise funds for my CD released digitally in August, but we need to take it to physical distribution and radio promotion !
I have released my album Keys of love after completely Independently funding the recording, and working with a talented group of producers and Video producers. The video shows the single Love me and my hair which is the first single released from the Album, and second video , Summerday, both produced by Herb Middleton.
You can listen here to the digital album
In order that the album is a success, The following remains to be completed and/or paid for in order to release the Physical copy of the album
artwork creation £200
mixing mastering £500
manufacturing of CD & LP and( 2 x singles to Vinyl subject to funds raised ) £3,000
promotion/advertising public relations £3,000 (5 weeks - 2 singles)
We estimate this to be £7,000 , but ideally the more we raise the bigger the radio campaign for the album .
The promo to radio is £600 per month via a recognised act plugger who has supported acts to mainstream radio.
The manufacture is for a 8 page colour CD press 2,000 copies minimum (depending on budget raised) and 500 vinyl to encourage DJ coverage
We have invested in our own Touring equipment (full PA) and have began UK tour dates to support the release of the single and album (independently) Album Keys of love Released on the 14th August 2012.
We have already had the video of first single Love me and my Hair released to Vevo, and it gained over 50,000 hits in a week.
We thank you very much for your support of this project and are humbled if you feel to support our Art! xxxx
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The risks are that we don't raise enough to gain a significant press of product, both for promotion and for sale. Also, we need the radio to pick up on the album, the single did already gain coverage from mainstream radio, we are hoping the album follows suit.
Launching to TV is more difficult, we have two videos completed. This project does not include video production on any of the other singles.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
