I'm currently working on my "lucky" thirteenth album entitled "Idle Hands" and, with your help, I'll be able to finish it up and release to the world! Check out this video to hear the first song.
If we don’t know eachother already, then my name is Ian Fisher. I’ve been writing songs and playing concerts since I was thirteen-years-old. I grew up in Missouri, USA, and moved to Europe a decade ago. Since then, I’ve played nearly a thousand concerts and made a dozen records. Along the way, I’ve met many of you lovely people, played some of the best stages in Europe and at festivals like SXSW, and even had the honor of recently being called one of the 10 New Country/Americana Artists You Should Know by Rolling Stone Magazine! Now I'm working together with some of my favorite musicians and best friends all over Europe and the US to make an album that I love!
I've been lucky enough to experience the incredible generosity of my supportive fans over the years and I want to show my gratitude for your continued support through the many rewards listed on the side of this page. This is my first time crowdfunding an album and I'm excited that I can finally directly give back to you, my fans, friends, & family who support me and my music the most! Anyone who pledges €20 or more will receive an early digital download in April 2018. The album's official release date will be later in 2018. All pre-ordered CDs and vinyls come with signed thank you cards and anyone who pledges more than €100 will have their name printed in the album!
I am currently self organizing and financing everything without a label or manager and it's your support that will help me finish the album's production, manufacture CDs and vinyls, and release and promote the record throughout the USA and Europe. With over 60% of people listening to music through streaming services and artists like me getting less than €0.005 per-play, a crowdfunding campaign is a great new democratic way for music lovers to have a direct impact on art and its creation. By being a part of this campaign, you are truly a part of this project. We're doing this together. I can never thank you enough for that!
Funds Raised via Kickstarter Will Go To:
- production & studio time
- album art
- music videos
- CD manufacturing
- vinyl manufacturing
- marketing & promo throughout the US & EU
- Additional Funds - If our goal is met, then I'll think of some cool new things to give you and any additional money will go into more music videos and larger press campaigns to help spread this music to new audiences!
If you have any questions, then please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
