HELLO, ALL YOU GOOD PEOPLE!!

Thanks for visiting my Kickstarter page! Most of you know, I love writing and playing music and want to share with as many people who will listen. I have been writing and performing for several years now, and I can't believe it, but I am finally making my FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM!

These days, as an independent artist, it's pretty difficult to make a quality full fledged album without some serious support.

SO...WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE A RECORD?

These are all of the necessary parts of the process:

  • Production
  • Recording studio time
  • Mixing
  • Mastering
  • Paying amazing musicians
  • Graphic design (for killer album art!!)
  • CD duplication
  • Promotion

Sooo...that's a lot. And of course, all of these things have fees associated with them that add up pretty quickly. And with the way the music industry and the nature of record labels has changed, it's up to the independent artist to find a realistic way to still create, produce, fund, and share their music with their audience.

That is why I'm asking that you make a donation to help me bring my dream to life! Together we'll be creating something that lasts forever!

SO WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

Should you decide to donate to this project (yes, please!), each level of donation has a different incentive that you'll receive - anything from concert tickets for a show near you, to a live album listening party, to visiting the studio during the session and having lunch with me, the band and crew. (There is much more. Look right ---->) For each donation amount listed, you'll also receive everything from the previous levels!

Backers will be updated with exclusive news, videos, and photos, so please stay tuned for those...

ANOTHER WAY TO HELP

Spread the word! Tell your friends, and have them tell THEIR friends - because honestly, every dollar counts. Kickstarter is an amazing company that offers artists a platform to share our art with the world! I cannot WAIT to do that.

There is only ONE CATCH to all of this - if we are even ONE dollar short of the goal, then the project WILL NOT go through, and I won't receive the funds that you so generously pledged. I hope you'll contribute if you can! Again, every dollar counts - truly.

Thank you so much in advance for all of your support!! It means the world to me! Let's do this.

Cheers!  Ayo
