About this project

Greetings to our amazing TRIBE

All backers of $25 or more, will receive a digital download of the EP a month before we release it!

Thank you for taking the time to check out our campaign. My band and I have been busy in the studio putting together our debut studio EP. We have always been about good fun and good music,and the healing power that music possesses. We have devised our own unique indie-rock sound that ranges from the church to the blues. Fresh and nostalgic, we are known for our electrifying shows, bringing funk, r & b, hip-hop and blues into a genre of our own making, NEO BLUES. 

Now that I'm an independent artist and no longer on a label, I have the freedom to record MY MUSIC. There are no creative limits on this EP, which makes it even more exciting. This is where YOU come in. YOU have supported me and my band so much, like you really are ride or die fans, and I know if YOU team up with us on this EP, it will be HUGE success.

We have already started the recording process, but we need your help to complete this project. Your donation will cover the additional costs of studio time, duplication, and promotion--we need to raise around $13,000. These funds will make this EP come to life and breathe a breath of fresh air in the AJ Ghent Band.

At this point, we can use all the help we can get. Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal. If we don't raise our goal of $13,000 the project does not get finished. If we go above the goal, we can use those funds for things like tour support, and additional promotion, marketing and advertising. The EP is set to release in July 2017. The initial goal of $13,000 will be spent on studio time, mixing, mastering, duplication, promotion and all of the other things it takes to complete the EP. 

So this is how it works. :)  You can look at the right side of the screen and see many different options in pledge items. The pledge exclusives range from advanced digital downloads, a chance to sponsor a song on the new EP, or a private acoustic house concert for you and your friends!

We are going to keep on jamming, and with your support, we can keep producing at the prodigious rate for which we have become known. Please join me and my band on this exciting journey! 

Let's spread some love!

 

Risks and challenges

I can honestly say I don't foresee any risks or challenges with this project. I have a great support system with a lot of dedication and experience to help complete the album by our July 2017 goal. We already have a great start on the project and can't wait to finish it. My fans have always been so supportive of my music and journey and I'm ecstatic to see where WE go on this next exploration!
