Due to an unfortunate accident all of our funding is gone. Please help us finish our new record & get a great reward for doing so.
for algernon needs your help -
The purpose of this project is to help raise funds so i may continue to record our new record. Recently, I was involved in pretty bad accident that wasn't my fault but due to the way insurance companies work was left paying all of the losses, personally. I do not want to go into details but instruments were lost, cars totaled & minor but painful injuries happened. Everyone and everything is working out and healing fine thanks to the love and support of friends and family but everything I had been saving for this new record was drained. This money will go a long way into helping myself and others. Any donation is appreciated and you will be forever in my heart and I will be eternally grateful. With your help i hope to be able to make back the money that was to be used to fund our next record, grow as a songwriter and make the best record i have ever made. Thank you, in advance.
What is all going into this album, in the past you have had little to no budget and made great albums?This album is going beyond just a disc. Music is changing, audiences are changing and if you can't create something to stand out and demand attention you might as well not bother. This album is going to include films that go with each song, artwork from several artists, dancers and more. We are going to make seeing a live show as important as listening to the music is. So that it seems incomplete to have one without the other. This money will go to making the best sounding record we have made and to the several artist in the cincinnati area we have been working with to make this dream a reality. We were so close. That is why I need your help.
