A recording project for the debut, full-length album of Antoine Allain.
Hello everyone! I am singer-songwriter Antoine Allain and welcome to my Kickstarter page.
For the last 6 months, I have been hard at work on my debut album, "The Life." Here is how it happened... I started posting videos on YouTube of me singing some of my favorite songs, and I began writing original material with the hope of one day recording my own album. San Francisco-based music producer, Gabe Lackner, approached me about collaborating on some music after seeing these videos online. I jumped at the opportunity, and immediately drove up to SF to start recording. Our chemistry in the studio proved to be both inspiring and prolific. A one-song collaboration materialized into a full-length, 12-song album. For a taste, visit my OneSheet.
I am determined to get my music out to the world, all I need is a little help from you!
The costs to finish this album have really added up. I am offering rewards that are music-related, as well as those connected to my unique set of surfing and skateboarding skills. So, even if you don’t want a music-related reward, you can get yourself (or a loved one) a surf or a skate lesson. If I reach my goal, I will have a special compensation for everyone that has donated. I have set the goal for $8000. This covers all of the costs for recording & mastering, session-musicians, album artwork, and cd & vinyl duplication. If you help me exceed my goal amount, the money will be used to fund a tour with a backing band, make more music videos and continue recording new songs for all of you.
To help me along my way, simply click the green "BACK THIS PROJECT" button and then follow the instructions. In two minutes, you will be done and I will owe you a sweet reward. If you don’t have the money to donate, I would love it if you would take a second to help promote this page.
(For those of you not familiar with Kickstarter, it works in an all-or-nothing structure. This means that the project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands.)
If you have any questions please feel free to submit one below… I will answer it as quickly as possible. Thank you for your time and support. It is much appreciated.
