Hey there Friends!
Thank you for visiting my KickStarter page and for Donating to Dreams. Most of you know me from Season 7 of NBC's, The Voice. Being on The Voice was an incredible experience for so many reasons. 1) I got to work with some of my favorite Artists/Idols, 2) I got to perform and share my passion for music with Millions of people all over the World! and 3) I got to meet all of You. YOU, who reached out to share your personal stories of struggle and triumph and let me know that my story inspired you to not give up on your dreams. It's because of you that I am creating this EP, to share my message of Hope and Determination. To empower others to create a life they love.
The Objective: In addition to making great music, there are several necessary aspects to a successful music release. They include: Marketing, Promotion, Touring, Merchandise & Distribution, to name a few. And all of those things cost $$. The objective of this campaign is the raise the necessary funds for Recording, PR & Touring. If we hit our $40K goal, we can finish recording our EP, cover the full scope of a PR/Marketing plan for the singles and hit the road with my band to perform for you lovely people. Yay!
The Facts: Making music isn't cheap, especially for an Independent Artist. Promoting it and Touring is even less cheap. That's why I have partnered with some incredible musicians, producers, videographers and promoters who share my goal of creating a high quality product on a conservative budget. And that's where You come in...
The Budget: The $40K raised in this campaign will be utilized as shown in the pie chart below. Mmmm pie....
BUDGET BREAKDOWN: $13,000 is allocated to the Recording Budget to include: Production & Engineering Fees, Studio Musicians, Studio Time, Recording, Mixing and Mastering, $8K will go toward the PR & Promotion Budget leading up to the release of each single, $10K will go toward our fixed regional touring costs, approx. $6K will go to the creation of Prizes and Shipping, 5-8%, or $3K, will go to KickStarter's fee for providing a safe platform and services. Anything this budget does Not Cover, such as Distribution, Merchandising and Misc costs, I will continue to fund personally.
Did Someone Say PRIZES..?!?
As a thank you for your contribution, there are Prizes at various donation levels. Pick your Poison!
Every donation is an incredible gift and Anything you can give gets us closer to the Dream. Thank You for helping support My Dream and for BELIEVING in Me. I can't do this without YOU. SO LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!
Risks and challenges
The Risks & Challenges of this project are simple: If we do Not reach our goal of $40K by the end of the 31-Day campaign, All Donations will be returned to the Backers, and we won't be able to do what we've set out to accomplish. Fear Not. We can do this.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
