Promoting p2p8 in DC

Project 2.8 stands for the 2.8 million service members that have served at least one combat tour in Iraq or Afghanistan.

This project is the final step in producing a professional music compilation for distribution. The songs on the album reflect my personal experiences throughout six combat tours - along with inspiration from many collaborators. This album is seven years in the making.

I have brought on Victor Hurtado from the Grammy Committee for consultation and the platinum mastering engineer, John Vestman. 

I have an aggressive national advertising strategy that includes a professional web-site, social media and radio ads.

Project 2.8 will shine a spotlight on the financial crisis our veterans face.

Risks and challenges

Lining up talent, studio time, production and mixing teams, and a mastering house are among the biggest challenges.

Keeping this album within budget is paramount. ALL funding will go straight to the product.

I have the best artists already so that one is taken care of. I have Studio Pros lined up for mixing, and Vestman Mastering ready to roll with the polish for the album. I have coordinated with a web designer, videographer, photographer, and local studio to round out the project needs.
