"Kidnapped" Album Release

$1,020

22

I am raising funds for what I feel is my best and most important project to date.  The proceeds will utilized for the impact and success of the art.  First to take care of all of the distribution and publishing expenses to give this the release it deserves and share it with those whom it is meant for in hopes that the art can really give a fresh perspective and inspire.

In conjunction with the album I am also creating a poem novella, which doubly acts as an art-book and audio-book.  So expenses for all the artwork, design, and outside publishing is a case as well.

And since this project is so personal and important to me as well, I really want to share it with you as fully as possible and offer you rewards that will add to make it more special such as posters, behind-the-scenes-videos, t-shirts, and nice treats that bring the whole project even more to life in ways that bigger music labels have that I wanted to still give to you.

If we are able to raise more I will be able to make signed physical copies for you, better produced music videos for songs on the album, as well as other cool perks that you can share with me that you are interested in!

Being an independent artist is tough, we have no agencies or advance from media monsters to give advances and a mass of advertisement to express our art to the world.

This is true tenfold when DIY (Do-It-Yourself). With the extreme right fascist agenda that is taking over and normalizing to "shut up and deal with it" it more important than ever that we are all able to express ourselves and share our own individual truths.

Independent and DIY art can not exist without supporters like you. For Us to co-exist in balance and harmony, this world takes all types of humans, art, expression, and for us to support each other.

Risks and challenges

The risks are not being able to get enough backing for the distribution to get it the full release it deserves and actually get the music to the ears it is meant for.
