I am recording my 3rd full length album. As a contemporary violinist, at age 23 I look forward to bringing you unique amazing music.
With your help I have successfully reached my goal!
I am excited about getting my music into your hands. I will be contacting you through update postings. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
The project is going to be a blend of Urban Jazz, R&B, and inspirational with original music as well as some well known covers that will honor great musicians like Stevie Wonder, Grover Washington and the late Michael Jackson. The funds will also be used to have a producer recreate and to license cover songs. Most of the project will be completed in the upcoming weeks, but getting it to you the listeners is where I need your help. I’m seeking radio airplay for the album and forming a tour to meet my followers and fans face to face! I also want to be able to perform at elementary and middle schools (most of which do not have big budgets).
Instrumental music (jazz, classical, etc) is a shrinking genre, but I think it takes the right individuals to give a new face to the music and show the next generation that playing the violin or any other instrument is just as amazing as singing or rapping. My goal is to continue spreading this form of talent to the masses. How you can help?
kick starter is a site that allows you to donate to different ideas and projects in my case my final processes of my album, its promotion, and tour. Depending upon how much you donate or pledge you get a gift in return.
I know you're wondering what is this donation going to be used for? Well the $7,500 includes:
Mastering of songs
Licensing of cover songs
Internet promotion (youtube, facebook)
Tour support for non ticketed shows such as churches and schools
Duplication of the Album (which you will get a copy of!)

This time I have some other featured artists on the album. This is completely produced independently by myself. I am also honoring some legendary artists such as Grover Washington, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson. I am really trying to make an album that connects instrumental music to a larger audience.
