The money raised from kickstarter will directly fund the Rainbows EP in every aspect of production. It will support two full days of recording and mixing with Mobtown Studios in Baltimore, MD. It will help me pay all of the fantastic musicians working with me on this project. It will fund the album artwork, a photo shoot with a professional photographer, and the pressing of the EP. Rainbows has been an EP two years in the making, (years in the dreaming!), from the songwriting to the recording timeline. I am more than thrilled that I have the opportunity to share my music with all of you. Thanks for your constant support and words of wisdom.
I want you to know exactly what you are paying for, so here is the breakdown:
- $800 - Two days of studio time at Mobtown Studios
- $400-$600 - Estimated cost of mixing ($60 an hour)
- $800 - Pressing 1,000 CDs, posters, and posting on iTunes and Amazon
- $200 - Album artwork and photographer costs
- $100 - Business cards
- $200-$2,000 - The payment of musicians and misc. costs
$2,500 is the bare minimum I will need to support all of these costs. It has grown beyond my means and I thank you for everything and anything you donate! Below are two rough recordings of songs going on the EP. The first is Rainbows, second is The Sadness In Your Eyes. Hope you enjoy!
Risks and challenges
There is a reason this EP has been over two years in the making. In a project like this, there are many working parts. There are potential setbacks when collaborating with in demand musicians and artists, however two years of networking, in Baltimore and New York, has put me in a great position to deal with any issues.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
