Help fund my first full U.S. tour to bring the album that we made on to as many people and spread as much "HOPE" as possible!
I’m believing, stepping out in faith, "HOPING", that you can help me raise the rest of the money for the album AND a tour to support it of the entire continental United States!
Many people didn’t get a chance to donate to help make the album, so I’m giving you another chance by trying to fund a U.S. Tour via Kickstarter. The goal is to raise $5,000 in the next month, (May 14th- June 11th) and book shows in most major cities for August/September/October. My hope is to cover expenses for those months and pay to get from San Diego to Augusta (Maine) to Jacksonville (Florida) to Seattle (Washington) and back home!
I guess I could call it “The Broke Ass Tour: Part 2″, but I think calling it “The Hope Tour” will make my mother happier.
So here’s what I’m asking for:
1. Help with getting the word out. “Sharing” does SOOO MUCH MORE for an artist than “Liking”. I can’t do anything if my numbers stay stagnant, so tell a friend. Invite them to a show. Share my music! Tell them my depressing yet funny stories.
2. Help me locate investors. These are people who want to support artists like myself and have the funds to do so. I have a business plan I can e-mail them and everything! The truth is, a healthy investor could make or break a musician’s career!
3. Give me ideas! Help me figure out how to reach more people! I’m only one guy… I may be creative, but my brain needs to sleep too! Is there something funny I could video tape that would go viral? A song that needs to be written? The worst thing I could say is, “uh…. you’re cray…” So start brainstorming.
4. Give me a hug. Cause I’m scared out of my mind…
Great things don’t happen if you don’t work for them, and I’m hoping that I can work hard enough to see all of your beautiful faces on the road.
Thank you so much ahead of time for your help. I’m starting all of the kickstarter stuff on Monday, May 14th.
I love you, and thanks for believing in me when I have a hard time believing in myself. You are the reason I have hope.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
