***I have a new and AWESOME pledge incentive for you. Now, I'm asking to raise $3,500 through Kickstarter to help fund the production and distribution of my debut album. But, if we can get $5,000 or more in pledges, everyone who pledges (no matter the level) will be invited to a FREE PRE-RELEASE CONCERT! That's right, anyone who pledged, no matter the amount, will be invited to a FREE PRE-RELEASE CONCERT if we can get $5,000 in pledges before our Kickstarter is done. That means you could be the FIRST audience to hear Michael's Music Machine LIVE before anyone can hear the album!*** 

Hello! I'm Michael of Michael's Music Machine.  For the past 7 years, I have worked as a teaching artist and contributed music to AlphaBet Soup Productions, Kokandy Productions, and the Beverly Arts Center. Now it's time for my own album. I like my melodies catchy and my lyrics fun.

As I've been in a classroom or dancing around the living room with my nephews, I wanted to hear children's music that reflected some of my favorite artists.  This album takes inspiration from MIKA, Stevie Wonder, Sia, Elton John, and even a little Patti LaBelle.  Michael's Music Machine will be a full album of original tunes that will get you up and dancing.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we are facing is producing an album of the highest quality. It is very important that Michael's Music Machine looks and sounds as professional as the musicians recording it. It is possible for an independent musician to reach that quality, but it will take time and funding. With the help from your pledges, we will be able to record and produce an album of that caliber.
