About this project

Blacktop Royalty records their debut album!

Hey, we're Blacktop Royalty and we need your support to make our debut record this summer! Kickstarter.com has given us the opportunity to raise money to pay for the album with the support of our fans, friends and family. Over the past year we have written a ton of songs and have finally decided on the ones we want to share with the world. In that past year we have also played shows around San Diego, released a music video, and we were featured playing live on channel 5 The CW. We are making this album as a band independently, which means we don't have the help of any record labels or investors. Kickstarter offers us the chance to create a much more intimate process of making this record with our fans,  family, and friends a part of the project every step of the way. This fundraiser could be the beginning of the rest of our lives and you could help us make it possible. If you would like to find more about the band find us [here on facebook].

How it works

After watching the video and checking out our currently released music you can donate directly on this page. All you have to do is select the amount you are willing to donate, follow the instructions about receiving your award, and enter your information! Since Kickstarter is all or nothing funding you will only be charged if we reach or beat our entire project goal. When we do meet our goal you will be charged and given an estimated delivery time for your reward.

Where does your money go? 

The goal amount we have listed is what we need to complete the entire project and get you your prizes. Here's a break down of where the money will go.

*Recording Costs: We will be recording and mixing in a professional            studio paying by the hour. 

*Mastering: Once the album is recorded and mixed it will be sent to a          professional mastering studio for a final mix so it sounds "radio ready". 

*Duplication: The CD's will be pressed and packaged for sale, this also    includes the cost of paying for design and artwork for the                                album.

*Publication: This includes the cost of copyrighting our material, getting the music up on itunes, Amazon, Pandora, etc.

*Prizes: This includes designing and printing the t-shirts, stickers, and     pictures. As well as costs for playing the shows we offer and                          shipping all the prizes.

*More: Any money we receive beyond our project goal will go to things like spending more time in the studio, building our website, getting gear we need for recording/playing live, saving to go on tour, making music videos, ordering more CD's to sell, throwing a CD release party, and much more.

Thank You!

We appreciate every single one of you for even taking the time to look over our project. Please donate any amount you can to help us. If you can't donate then spread the word about the project to see if someone else you know can help. This could be the beginning of a huge career for us and everyone who backs this project will be responsible for making that happen. Thank you so much and we hope to have a lot of music to share with you very soon!
