Folk/Rock/R&B album recorded with amazing musicians. We would like to spread this breath of fresh air to the masses! We need your help

Hey y'all,

The music: http://www.reverbnation.com/gabrieltajeu/song/16633169-somethin-it-aint 

So there are a few more things that we have to do before we can say this album is "finished," and I really need your help right now.  I am asking for $3,000 because I believe it is an attainable goal and it would allow me to finish my project.  However, any funds raised above that would help us tremendously in getting the album in more people's hands!  It's a tough industry and we feel like this music deserves to be heard, so the more people we can get this music too, the bigger buzz we can create! 

First thing we have to do is finish getting the album mastered which includes paying to have it "Mastered for iTunes!!"  I can't wait to see that pretty little icon next to the album when I look it up in the iTunes store (plus it will make the mp3s sound better)!! 

Second and most importantly, we have to press up the album so that we can have copies to sell and give away (at this point in the game, I think a lot of that is going to be happening).

Your support will go a long way!!  Thank you!!

Check out the tunes! First three are off of the upcoming album!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

My only current hurdle is funding. I have self funded every aspect of my project up until this point and it is almost done!! I just need to raise a bit more money to finish the album mastering, develop a website, and press up CDs!! I really need your help now to make sure that the music I've created with some amazing musicians actually can get out and get heard.
