First of all I would like to say, thank you for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter campaign.  Without you, this project would not be possible.  

Second, if you've watched the video, then you already know where I am coming from, and what this project is all about.  However, you're probably wondering where in the world all this money is going to go, if the campaign is successful.  

Here is a general breakdown for you:

Roughly $1,100 is going towards the actual recordings.  This includes studio time, musicians, and an awesome producer I will be working with in New Orleans.  I'm calling in several favors from close friends, which is how I'm able to keep this cost so low. 

Another $1,800 or so is going towards the campaign rewards and fees.  This will cover all the printing, packaging, and shipping of all the rewards that YOU are helping bring into existence. 

The leftover $600 is going towards Digital Distribution, Copyrights, and Promotional Material to make sure that not only this campaign is successful, but once it is over, the actual album release is successful as well.  


If the campaign goal is exceeded, and extra funds are raised, there are a few people who are helping me out pro bono, that I would love to pay if possible.  Beyond that, it would go towards additional promotion, and possibly a tour in the not too distant future.  

Again, you have my sincerest thanks for taking time out of your day to consider helping make my dream become a reality.  

-Joshua

Risks and challenges

As with any venture, there are going to be some challenges. Luckily, most of these have been figured out ahead of time, but we can't forget about good ol' Murphy's Law. Essentially, this is like starting a business. Only the business is music, and the product is the album (or....me?). And starting a business is never easy. But it is possible. So lets make it happen, shall we?
