This is a Kickstarter project for my debut album "Tyson James and The Nashville Players".  I have been working this summer, fall and winter to save money for this project and I have managed to save enough to get me through the majority of recording phase of the album.

The costs are as follows: Mixing $500, Mastering $500, Photography and graphic design $100, Final Studio time $200, CD replication (Disk Makers) $333 = $1633.

My plan after completion is to send CD's to the many radio stations across the country some I have played on and some I haven't.  Also, as CD's are old technology I will have my album mainly available for digital download on Bandcamp iTunes, and other various sites.  As soon as I have a product in hand I can use it for promotion such as acquiring a promoter (I already have a few in mind), soliciting venues, getting air time and festivals.

Risks and challenges

I have been living in Nashville for almost 3 years and during that time have been working on the material for this album. My main obstacle has been the lack of capital. If this project gets successfully funded I foresee few obstacles following it to completion as this is familiar territory. I have been in direct contact with the mixing and mastering engineers, Discmakers, and graphic designers. They are all online and ready to go!

Once completed I will have an opportunity to for a recording contract, get airplay, solicit festivals, venues and for tv airtime. You need a product in this day and age to sell. Without it your stuck in the mud!

Thanks!
