Hi I'm Dez Phoenix an indie artist looking to raise funds to record, promote, and release my first EP "LIVE EACH DAY"
The most important life lesson that I have learned over the past year is to "cherish every moment". I am learning to LIVE EACH DAY to the fullest and take advantage of the blessings that life brings my way. This project is a short story of my life, love, and triumphs. I've written songs that I'm proud of and I believe represent a cohesive body of work. They've taken a lot out of me (in a good way), and I'm looking forward to sharing them with you.
Being an independent artist is hard, I won't lie... But I can also say that it's the single most rewarding feeling I've had in my life. I'm able to interact directly with each and every one of you, and nothing feels better than making music for your friends. Every note on this album is as much for you as it is for me, and together I think we can show the world that it’s possible to create awesome music, and stay independent at the same time.
Everything is ready to go: the songs, the musicians, the studio. All I need is a little help from you! Every dollar will go towards the album, paying the musicians and the people who will be filming the video, etc... All the additional, (if by chance there is any) money will go towards promoting and distributing the album.
I believe with the great rewards we are offering and with your generous donations, we can easily achieve our goal of raising $8500.00 in a 30 day time frame. So, please, check out our rewards, donate whatever you can, and spread the word by sharing this project to your family and friends.
I can't say it enough, but thank you... I'd be nothing without you guys.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
