I am in the process of releasing my first solo EP called Weight of the World. This EP consists of 5 moving and original songs that truly show my heart. They are extremely vulnerable and bring up things that people don’t usually want to talk about. These song selections cover everything from missing someone to feeling lonely. Questions that we don’t have answers to, to how our hearts are burning for knowledge. The songs continue to journey us through the waters of feeling sane, and the freedom of life’s heavy burdens being lifted from our shoulders. I don't want to just release an EP that touches a person here and there. I want to create a culture for my music to bring inspiration to those that I can't reach on my own. To fulfill this dream, I will need a team of professionals to surround me. To bring clarity and wisdom to the decision making processes of the music industry. Below you will find a prospective budget that will help make this dream of mine come to life.
First Goal is to record debut EP : total cost $10,000

Studio Rental - $1500
Musicians - $2500
Engineers & Editing sessions - $1000
Producer - $1800

The landscape of music has changed today. It used to be the only way to get a publicist or a radio promoter was if you were signed to a record label. Now it's not only possible to do this as an independent artist, but in some ways a better solution. If we hit the original goal of 10k then we can push on to the stretch goal of hiring a publicist to get the music out there to magazines, blogs and tv houses. We could also hire a radio promoter to get one of my song's to radio all over the world! This would be a dream come true.
Strech Goal- Publicity & Radio Promotion : $7900.00
Publicist for three months @ $1800 a month = $5400
Radio promoter $2500
Risks and challenges
Although my EP is recorded, I'm still in the mix and mastering process. From there I begin working with a publicist and promoter. Lots of work to do. But with your financial support, we complete this amazing project together. Now THAT'S exciting!!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
