When launching a new project featuring the kind of talent that is on display in this one, the artists feel a sense of responsibility to make the finished product match the creative vision that they share. Rebecca Jade is an established musician in San Diego. Her talent has been marveled by the crowds at the jazz club Anthology (http://www.anthologysd.com) as she is the lead singer of their "house band." . She performs in the electric girl-group "Siren's Crush" and has won local awards singing with the 10 piece funk and RnB band "Super Magnetic." People who follow her career have been anxiously awaiting her to release something in the world of original music. Anthony, Al, and Rebecca want you to know that they wholeheartedly believe in this project and are confident that this album will add a significant contribution to the local music landscape.
We are hoping to raise AT LEAST $3000 to invest in launching the project. As you know, producing an album costs much more than this. We have been recording all of our scratch tracks and templates in Anthony's home studio. This keeps the cost down. We want to record a 10 piece string ensemble for some of the tracks. We need to spend some time mixing and re-recording other instruments. We also want to spend an excessive amount of time making Rebecca's vocal tracks pristine in quality. We also will spend some money on graphic design and CD duplication. If we can raise more than the $3000, that would be preferable. However, on a tight budget, we can launch this project with $3000. A more comfortable goal would be $5000.
We have a studio picked out that has offered us a very "hooked up" rate. We also have many of the contributors to the record working based on their shared belief that this project is worth their involvement. Several world class musicians have volunteered their time and talents to make this budget workable. Anthony is an expert at working with tight budgets and has made many records on limited funds. However, this is a record that deserves the best treatment we can offer. The more money we raise, the better album we can make. Every little bit helps, so even if you can spare a dollar or two it would be appreciated... but check out the cool rewards you can earn by backing our project fully!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CONTRIBUTING!!!
It's also important to realize that if we don't raise AT LEAST $3000, then you are charged NOTHING! So there's no risk of the project falling through!
