ASHLEY HEATH - LET'S GO BIG!!!

$11,886

159

                   THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!!!

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone for stopping by! This year has been an EPIC year so far!!! WHY?? Well................

With the help of producer Ryan Burns and engineer Clay Miller along with a handful of Asheville's finest musicians and artists, we teamed up to finish my debut album "A Different Stream"! These extremely awesome folks poured their heart and energy into recording, engineering,and mixing the record, along with photography, and graphics for the album! They all graciously worked on this project in their spare time to help get the ball rolling! We recorded the album at the world class Echo Mountain Recording Studios in Asheville, NC and Sedgewick Studios in Flat Rock, NC. So I wanted to give a BIG BIG THANK YOU to Elijah Cramer, Matthew Smith, JC Mears, Kevin Reese, Melissa Hyman, Ryan Furstenburg, Drayton Aldridge, Clay Miller and Ryan Burns for being so AMAZING and helping me accomplish this lifelong goal!! 

LETS GO BIG!!!
LETS GO BIG!!!

                                NOW LET'S GO BIG!!!

Now that the album has been released, I have been working on ways to get the album out to the public... and as an independent artist it has not been easy! When bands sign to a label, the label has a management team that takes care of the publicity and marketing for the album along with booking and tour support. I'm not currently signed to a label so I NEED YOUR HELP to put together a winning team to get my music out to the masses. I know with the proper support there is no telling how far we can go!!

                            I'M RAISING MONEY FOR

1. PUBLICITY AND MARKETING 

  • Publicity and Marketing means getting my story, music, and media seen and heard in the markets in which I want to perform and build a fanbase. 
  • Hiring a publicist that is familiar with the markets that I want to break into is crucial to making sure people know about my music, upcoming performances, and how to access and purchase my music and media online. 
  • Advertisements and Promotional Materials will also be needed to make sure that as many people as possible know about me as an artist and have an opportunity to listen to my music. 

2. TOUR SUPPORT

I am making preparations for an upcoming TOUR to sell and promote the new album! A portion of the money from the Kickstarter will help with TOUR SUPPORT. 

  • Vehicle Rentals
  • Gas
  • Hotels
  • Food
  • Merchandise
  • Paying Musicians

These are just some of the expenses that come along with touring with a band. The more support we have for this FIRST TOUR the more cities we will be able to add to the list and the better we will be able to market the album and performances. I CAN'T WAIT TO PLAY MUSIC IN YOUR TOWN!!!

3. ALBUM DISTRIBUTION - (Getting my album and promotional materials to Record Shops and Radio Stations). 

Even though we live in a digital world I still believe in having a physical copy of all of my recordings. It's important to me to get my music into local record stores around the region so that music lovers looking for new music can find me. I just really love the idea of someone finding my cd or record in a record shop and taking it home and falling in love with it like I have so many times before with the records that I love. I also want to get my music on the radio!! All of this means I will need to... 

Get my music on the radio!!! 

  • Local, College, and Internet Radio are great ways to reach people who have never heard of me or my music!!

Sell my album and retail in shops around the region.

  • I will need to make sure that local and regional music retail shops have my music so that people who hear me on the radio or find me on the internet can purchase hard copies of my album. 
COMING TO A TOWN NEAR YOU!!
