David Katz/20yrs. I've started a new indie rock project: Altadore. I'm looking to fund the release of my debut album, "Golden Hills."
My name is David Katz, I'm 20 years old, and I'm starting a new project called "Altadore."
Altadore is a new musical project I've started that involves me and some friends along the way.
I've been pursuing music for about 4 years now. Playing in bands, doing some solo stuff, helping other friends out with their music, that sort of thing.
However, I haven't had my share of luck with really getting a band to succeed and reach goals. A lot of the time it was because dedication wasn't always there from the group as a whole, or we all didn't have the same vision in mind. And the rest of the time, finances were just a bit too much for us handle.
But back in March of 2011, the band I was in broke up. So, I took that as an opportunity to really take matters into my own hands.
I got some songs together that I felt were unique and strong.
I booked some studio time, and I started to make a full band solo record.
The album is called "Golden Hills", there's 6 songs, and it's the best music I've ever personally created.
My friend Zach helped me out and played drums on the album, and my other friend Teejay played bass on a couple of the tracks.
I went into the studio in July of last year and it's all finally starting to come together.
However, with my living expenses holding me back, I could really use some help to finish up the record, and get the essentials to release this album.
I've broken down everything that I need to release this new record.
My total fundraising goal comes to: $900.
- Mixing - $150
- Mastering - $240
- CD Duplication (100 CDs - $310) & Delivery (iTunes - $50) - $360
- Merchandise - $150 ($200 for 30 One Color T-Shirts)
Some of my rewards for you donating to this project involve t-shirts, which is why I've included that in the total. However, I'm not asking for the full price, just enough to help me out a bit.
The thing about me using Kickstarter to fund this project, is that if I don't reach my goal of $900, I won't receive any of the amount that was donated. And you'll never be charged.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and listen to what I'm trying to accomplish. If you ever want to contact me personally, please don't hesitate to do so.
You can contact me through Kickstarter or e-mail me directly at: email@example.com.
I'd love to talk with you!
When the project reaches it's deadline, I'll ask everyone who pledged for their shipping address.
