I'm excited that I am creating my first Solo CD Project!! Thank you for joining me on this new venture by pledging your support! 

I started in the music business, signed to my first record deal at the age of 19 years old.  I consider myself very blessed to have traveled the world and have visited many places, as a result of my music career. I have discovered that what I am passionate about is seeing people's lives changed and touched, by the gift of song, that I have received from the Creator. Music is my life, my purpose, and my calling. 

A desire of mine has been to produce a Cd that would honor my friends and supporter's request, of songs I have performed live.  I'll also be incorporating  new music that I have been writing and co-writing. 

I will be releasing this project on my own independent label. As you may know, the independent labels are making a great impact and presence in the industry today, producing music that is authentic and  without any limitations creatively. However, most independent labels are in need, in the area of financial resources, in order to accomplish the goals that they would like to achieve. 

The various areas that are covered in the budget in order to make this dream a reality include:

Production- Producers, Musicians, Singers, Engineers, Studio Cost

Scoring Music

Editing

 Mixing and Mastering

 Photography and Makeup Artist

CD Design-Packaging-Manufacturing

Publishing Administration for Licensing and Copyright

Any additional fees will go toward marketing, promotions, and merchandising. 

WHEW!!!, now you know why I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

So, remember, we have to reach the TOTAL AMOUNT

*** Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal which means if we do not reach $35,000 the project will not be funded ( your credit card will not be charged) and no incentives will be sent out. I believe we can REACH OUR GOAL !!!!!!!

So, please Choose from one of the incentives and please SPREAD THE WORD  through email, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Texts, Phones, and Word of Mouth. 

My heart is overwhelmed at the thought of lives being impacted by this music. You will play such an IMPORTANT ROLE in their lives as well. 

Once again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for supporting this dream. 

Sincerely,

Steve Crawford

Risks and challenges

As far as risk or challenges that may arise with completing the project, I have worked diligently up to this point to lay down the foundation of what a project of this magnitude would require. There have been months of planning and even time spent in pre-production to speed the recording process along. Of course with any project you have no control other third parties schedules or availability, so the best thing to do, to the best of your ability, is to have alternative solutions, such as, back up contractors, venues and individuals that can to render the services needed. . This will give you options. I've learned that you can't allow what seems to be a delay to stop you. It may very be a blessing in disguise, that can contribute to an even better product in the end. I'll keep pushing forward.
