I am recording the tracks for my Debut Album Aryes Season. I sing R&B/Pop and I want the WORLD to hear GREAT music by a great artist!
Hi my name is Alexis "Aryes" Armstrong!
Thank-you once again for taking a few minutes of your time to listen to my music. I am in the process of creating a city-wide movement in the city of Rochester, NY, with the hope that it will become a national trend and I hope that you will be interested in supporting the Team Aryes movement after hearing some amazing material.
The Team Aryes movement is a trend that is on its way to becoming a household name in the city of Rochester and soon on the East Coast.
At this time we are still slightly short of our goals for recording and distribution costs and I would like to extend to you the opportunity to become a part of this potentially lucrative position. I have ten months to write, record, and market this project. I have developed a plan for my debut project called “Aryes Season.”
I intend to separate myself from my competition by utilizing the traditional talent shows and city wide events such as the Highland Park Concerts, the Lilac festival next year and other local festivals as well as a dramatic but strong web presence so that my fan base won’t be limited to the city of Rochester, NY.
My intention with this project is to create a brand for myself as well as promote myself as an independent artist who is capable of creating buzz, planning and executing a clear marketing plan, and producing a solid marketable image with my fan base. I know the chances are up against me but I think I fair up pretty well against other artists in my genre because I have a clear sense of myself as a artist and performer.
Team Aryes cash flow will admittedly be constricted during our initial launch however, we plan on using a street team that is going to simply be called Team Aryes. Here is a break down of the costs involved in this project:
$ 1,350 Recording & Mixing
$ 1,000 Instrumentals
$ 1,390 Full Color CD with Jacket (500 units)
$ 1,160 Advertisement
$ 750 Trademarking Team Aryes and Aryes
$ 350 Props for Album Photo Shoot
The position of street team representatives are going to be filled by fans of Aryes in the college age demographics. Usually unpaid, street teams for Aryes who will be rewarded with free merchandise or show access in exchange for a variety of actions:
· placing stickers and posters in their communities
· bringing friends to the shows
· convincing friends to buy music
· phoning local radio station to request my songs be played
· bringing music local DJs in the clubs where they work
· posting to forums and bulletin boards online
· maintaining websites/social media dedicated to the Team Aryes
I have conducted a great deal of research and I am well aware of the risks of investing in a recording artist who is not known. However, I am not just a recording artist. I feel like I can be a mover and shaker in the industry because I don’t lack drive, talent or knowledge about my path. I am realist about my chances of making it “big” and I know I stand up against a number of talented people who are just as driven and hungry as I am.
I am always willing to be the best at whatever it is that I do so that I can make an impact on at least one person in through my music but I believe that because it is so good I will easily be able to become an artist in moderate rotations in web radio as well as local radio.
If there is one thing no one likes, it’s someone who asks for support but somehow doesn’t produce the discussed results. Included in this document is the explicit involvement I play in this project considering this is my personal dream. Some of the details include how I am going to be working with a team as well as myself for being fully responsible for the promotion of my music.
I am confident you will be impressed with the framework and well thought outs plans. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to answer them.
