AM PM plans to release an EP and music video for our first single with a live performance in New Orleans, LA. We need your help!
“My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it, and you simply take as much as you require”- Edward Elgar
We are AM PM; a five piece NYC based Hip-Hop/Soul band and production team. Over the past few years we have been working hard recording for and playing behind some of NY and NJ’s remarkable up and coming artists. Doing so has enabled us to absorb a surfeit of knowledge of music and the industry that accompanies it.
During the summer of 2011, we took a huge step. Instead of playing for the artist, we made the decision to become the artist. What does this mean? Namely, it means beginning a completely DIY business. We do admit we were a bit naive when making this decision and have since truly learned what it means to work hard and become successful in the music industry. While it has been a long and hard road just to get to this point, we are dedicated to reach success in spreading our message and story through music. But with all our hard work and sacrifices there is still something missing: And that’s where YOU come in!
To take our mission in music to the next level, we plan to release a four track EP and music video to accompany our first single! In order to promote the EP we will also be hosting a performance featuring the amazing music of Erika Flowers and FreedomSpeaks at the infamous Eiffel Society in New Orleans, LA on April 20, 2012. While in New Orleans, all three bands will be coming together in sharing our experiences in the music industry in hopes to inspire and educate the children of All Souls Episcopal Church & Community Center on what it takes to become successful, and that it is possible.
Though we are college students and our budget is limited, as a band we have made the decision to cover the expenses for the New Orleans performance as well as studio time. Your pledges will be covering the expenses for artwork prints, photos, mixing and mastering, video production, as well as CD and DVD printing. This will enable us to spread our music and the work of our peers on a much larger scale than we have the ability to presently. Any money that we receive post reaching our goal will be put towards funding a full length album, a tour and many more cool things for you!
Now remember, your donations will not be in vain. If we do not reach our goal, you will not be charged for your donation and we will not receive any money. But if we do reach our goal, along with gaining some pretty cool rewards, you will have inspired and contributed to making our dreams, and hopefully the dreams of future generations come true.
We want to stress that this is not just our music, it is yours first because without you it would be worthless. So whether you contribute or not we would love to hear your feedback and if a different reward would suit you better let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
With that said, just as we began we would like to close with a quote that inspires us to keep on:
“Music is the wine which inspires one to new and generative processes, and I am Bacchus who presses out this glorious wine for mankind and makes them spiritually drunken.”- Ludwig Van Beethoven
You are Bacchus!
