The time has come. It's all or nothing....the fight of our lives and it's NOW or NEVER! Let's "kickstart" an EPIC musical movement!
MISSION/PURPOSE: We exist to unite the world through music using a POWERFUL, HARD HITTING blend of different genres and diverse cultures. We wan't to captivate your senses, and open up the minds of the listener, freeing it to think outside the box. Through the combination of music and lyrics, we want to encourage and motivate people to dream BIG, and positively reinforce whatever you can imagine. We make music for everyone, to reach all people, RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE!
The five of us-Raphael Thomas, Jr, Adrian Taylor, Brent Easton, Lwan Easton, and Jamie Dyer, NEED BACKERS!
The BIG Project: We are gearing up to record our second project. This is a massive "all or nothing" type of campaign. We need your help, and we know, with your backing, we can take this movement to the masses! If you don't know, live studio projects, when done correctly, can range anywhere from $20,000-$30,000 after it's all said and done.We don't represent a label or agency at the time. This is 100% D.I.Y! We believe we can cut a lot of that in half, given the fact the PSboys have years of combined experience in engineering and recording as well. After you record, mix, and master, it's important to make sure all the hard work pays off. We have to purchase thousands of Cd's to place in stores regionally, and have with us when we travel, pay for marketing, radio promotion, and touring. We currently have TWO opportunities to tour in 2012, which would ensure the complete success of this project, and of course YOUR investment.
EXPENSE BREAKDOWN: Here is a breakdown of the expenses of this project-
RECORDING/MIXING/MASTERING: $5,000 (inludes 1,000 Cd's printed and wrapped)
TOUR SUPPORT: $5,000-$10,000 (includes hotel, travel, gas, personal expenses, and food over approx. one month and 20 show dates)
NO DOUGH? Money is not everything. We're being completely transparent in letting you know what it takes to help a band be a national act. Money is a HUGE part in this en devour. HOWEVER, maybe you have connections beyond a physical dollar. We are MORE concerned with you being "apart" of this journey in some way. For example, with gas being $1,000 a gallon (lol) you could very well have the means to connecting us with free gas cards for tour sponsorship. Or maybe you just happen to know someone, that knows someone with connections in the RV industry! Or you may have an inside track on Cd duplication and/or replication.....the list can go on and on! Relationships are pretty important too so please don't hesitate to connect us with people.
The number that you see at the top right that portrays our "goal" is more so just at the point we feel we can AT LEAST get started. If we meet the minimum goal, we're off and running! If we do not meet it, Kickstarter will release zero funds, and we're back to square one. Our "GOAL" is to double maybe even quadruple that, to push us to the forefront of an ever evolving industry and community, who we feel needs a sound, energy, and impact like ours.
Please help us out in this major effort to influence lives through music. You are backing us to help Kickstart our dream, so we can, in turn, Kickstart the dreams of others. We are......because of you, and never forget to be.....EPIC!
