I'm looking for backers to fund the manufacturing a short-run of CDs for my upcoming album, "Back To The Basics". The music has been recorded, mixed, and mastered so I'm just needing some help to get CDs made for those who want them.
I set my funding goal based on prices to produce a basic CD package (with a 2 panel color insert). My hope is that my funding goal can be exceeded so I can make it more of a deluxe CD package with liner notes that would include the lyrics to all of the songs on the album and some art and photos as well. If the funding reaches $450, I can include an 8 panel color insert. If the funding reaches $550, I can include a 16 panel color insert.
I want to produce enough of these CDs for the backers and have some extra units that can be available for promotional purposes etc.
It doesn't seem like it's really an album unless there are actual tangible units manufactured. I'd appreciate your help in making this happen.
For those not already familiar with my music, the music on this album could be classified as classic or old school heavy metal. My influences include Judas Priest, Accept, Iron Maiden, Dio, Dokken, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Van Halen, Joe Satriani etc. I'm sort of known for an unconventional frenetic guitar style. The vocals are clear and melodic and the lyrics on this particular album are meaningful and often quite moving. To illustrate, here is the music video for a track from the new album entitled "Mother Of Exiles":

Thanks for your consideration of my project!
Risks and challenges
To fulfill the rewards to the backers, I'll need to get T-shirts made, photos produced, and streaming and download website set up. The funding will cover that and postage to send the rewards as well as manufacturing the CDs. Since the music is ready, the risk seems manageable.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
