A composer that can't read music. A lead singer with stage fright, and a drummer without a lesson. Our first album is almost done!
We are Savage Gypsy! We're a small indie band in Dallas Texas. We started from nothing, and are still with nothing but we actually have fans at least now. We've put out several singles, check em out at the link on ReverbNation. And have even done a couple music videos all in house. But we're really now at a point where we have to get our album finished, and do a full release, with two 'new' music videos, and a real press push.
As anyone knows advertising is expensive, and shooting a music video that looks high quality is also pricey. We don't 'want' a label, we want to be able to get songs from us directly to the fans, and have that 'close' kind of relationship. We do edgy stuff, darker stuff, indie kind of things.. and well we're very eclectic. Check us out at www.reverbnation.com/savagegypsy We want to do a music video for two songs, one of them being "Use You", and the other from "fade away" which isnt even finished yet, but we know those will be our two strongest.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenges we have on this project is first of all getting videos done. Nowadays you cant have a good album release without videos and advertising. Crew folks are expensive, and then food, and makeup, and all that stuff. Then once you do that, you have to pay for some advertising. All those 'click' ads get really expensive, and ultimately we can't do a big huge push without the budget to really try to 'blast' ourselves out there to the public. As far as the 'studio', we built our own. Yep, and built our own sound booth, and will do some story about how we did that, and how well it works. (just listen to the songs yourself). But we also need to get a new instrument mic, and flesh out the sound proofing in the audio booth to improve the vocals.
