Hi, I'm Tom Smith and I'd love to invite you to be a part of my next adventure...

Over the past year it has been an honour to have been leading worship and song writing with friends and colleagues from all over the world. With it being the start of a new year, I feel it's a great time to capture the songs and create my first record. 

In February, I will be venturing down to Brighton for 2 weeks to start the recording process with the help of Martin Smith & Jonny Bird who will be producing the project at Sound City Studios. 

I have planned to record a five track record to be released this summer in July. I'm currently in the final process of completing songs with writers and musicians from HTB Church & St Peter's Brighton.

With all projects, there is a challenge. I'm looking to raise £10k to finance the project. The main costs of the project will be:

  • Producer, Mixing, Mastering & Musician Fees (£7k)
  • Marketing & Creative (£1k)
  • Distribution (2k)

Below is a demo I recorded recently of one of the songs I'd love to put on the EP. You can hit play to listen below. The song title is 'Sound Of Heaven'.

I am so excited about this new venture and I am writing this note to you to ask if you would be willing to join with me in this vision and make an investment/gift into the present and future of my journey and help me make this project a reality. 

Thank you so much,
Tom Smith

Risks and challenges

I'm confident there are no big risks in this project by sticking to the deadline dates I have put in place. I will be working with professionals who also work with deadlines and know how to stick to them. I want to be very transparent about where the money is going so I have put further detail as to where the funds will be distributed to:

Recording Process
This section be the actually recording of the songs with the band.
Producer Fee - £2k, Mixing - £2k, Mastering - £2k, Musicians Fee - £600, Engineer Fee - £400. Total = £7k

Marketing Process
This will be to promote the album (Advertising is Magazines) and help fund the branding, design, and photoshoot. Advertising - £750, Photoshoot & Design - £250. Total = £1k

Distribution Process
This will be the actual manufacturing of the record. I'm looking to have 2000 copies of the album ready for the summer launch in July. When ordering 2000 copies, each copy comes to £1. Total = £2k
