YOLONDA'S FIRST AND LONG-AWAITED EP MUSIC PROJECT. FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT HERE...
***NOTE THAT THE LAUNCH DATE ANNOUNCED IN THE ABOVE VIDEO HAS CHANGED TO FEBRUARY 19, 2012.***
Greetings, friends and family! Thank you for taking the time to see what all the fuss is about.
The geniuses at Kickstarter.com have provided a platform for me to invite you to be a part of my first music project. It's kind of incredible.
As many of you may know, I took a hiatus of sorts from musical performances for some years to attend school, marry, start a family and a couple of businesses. (Visit www.facebook.com/hisimagehair & www.blog.ycjonesphotography.com for more info on those). All the while, music has faithfully been chasing and has finally commandeered me. I feel the season changing with singing once again making its way to the forefront of my concentration. I have songs upon songs written, and what I have come to understand and believe is a calling and divine purpose to share them.
There is an awesome studio here in Charlottesville, called The Cat Room, run by Brian Craddock of the hugely successful band Daughtry--spurred on by the American Idol fame. Also at The Cat Room is accomplished producer/engineer, musician and songwriter, Andy Waldeck. These guys are just a couple of the folks who are as excited as I am to get started on my 6-song extended play (EP) music project.
Will you back the project? No dollar amount is too small or too great. Every single penny counts. Over to the right of this page are the Rewards you will receive in exchange for your participation.
With as little as $5 you will be helping to fund studio time, professional studio musicians, professional engineering, sound mixing and mastering, CD pressing and duplication, as well as cover the cost of getting these great Rewards out to you.
See the Rewards column to the right. Here's your chance to help provide an answer to the question of when the album is coming out. If you're a part of a larger group or organization and many of you are planning to back the project, put your pledges together and shoot for an even greater Reward. How awesome would it be to receive a copy of the EP with yours or your group's name listed as "executive producers"? I would LOVE to come and sing for you!
All or nothing. Must reach the goal in 60 days.
There are no risks. If the goal ($15,000 in pledges) isn't reached by the end of the campaign (April 2012), no one will be obligated to fulfill their personal pledge. So spread the word. If you think this is a great endeavor, pass this link along. Let's make something amazing happen together! Pledge today.
