I'm returning to the studio to record my third album entitled, "Diligence" and I need you!
Here's a little bit about me and some of my achievements.
I am a solo artist from New England. I’m the sole songwriter, performer and producer for all my records. I own and operate a state of the art recording studio called SL Productions. My sound can be best described as Pop/Rock. Within the past four years, I have traveled across the East Coast of the US, been featured in many entertainment magazines with full page spreads and was on NECN's The Morning Show. I have self-released two full-length albums: one in 2010 (Everybody Dreams) and the other in 2013 (You and Me). My music has been played in weekly rotation on several rock radio stations across the US. I have released 3 professional music videos, performed with a few legendary artists and landed some endorsements along the way.
I have written a bunch of new material that I am eager to record, release and share with the world!
Releasing an album is expensive!
The real question I've been avoiding is ‘how will I pay for this endeavor?’ I realize that time waits for no one so I had to make a decision. It was either sign my rights away to an independent label and lose my musical freedom, or keep control of my own brand.
I believe my goals can be attained on my current trajectory, especially with you behind me. So that's who I have chosen to partner with.
This leaves you, and me. A direct path.
Through my team of advisers, a direct relationship with distributors and my amazing fan base, I have sustained my career by being able to keep all of the proceeds from my music. I am humbly asking you to pledge, pre-order, donate, hire me to come play a show, or whatever you feel like doing so that I may keep control of my music.
The record may not be fully funded without your help.
My goal of $8,400.00 only covers the essentials such as production costs for mastering, distribution and music videos. It also covers Kickstarter's fee.
I hope to stretch past my primary goal so that I may promote and market the record to its fullest potential including press releases, radio promotion, advertising and so much more. My ideal goal is to reach $24,000.00. But first things first, at a minimum, I have to raise at least my primary goal so that I can take the finished project out of the studio.
If you back my project:
• Your card will not be charged until the end of the campaign. And that only happens if I meet the goal.
• You will receive 'backer only' updates from the studio as recording is happening!
• You will be the first to hear the record streaming once it is finished.
• I will love you greatly and feel very warm and fuzzy inside.
Thank you so much for reading this and considering.
If you have any questions at all, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Kickstarter. I am very open to your thoughts, ideas and concerns!
Peace, love and blessings!
