Thanks to all who have made a pledge so far. Because of you we have reached our goal. We have 6 days left on our campaign! Would like to make the most of it and, we would like to add something in as an incentive to help us get just a bit more in funding.
Here it goes.
Many of you know me personally. You know that I have a real passion for the Jazz Genre. Jazz and Gospel is where my heart is. I have decided, that if we can continue to bump up our pledges in the next 6 days, I am going to additionally make a Jazz CD. This should be fairly easy to make with considerably lower expense. I also plan to ask a couple of my family members to join me on this... Maybe showcase them on a song or two... I have already spoke with them and they would like to be a part of this as well.
So.. my commitment to you. If we can reach the target goal of $22,200 (You knew I had to do it right?) I will include a digital download of this Jazz CD to all who have pledged $10.00 or more. Right now we are at $19,000... we only need $3000 more.
Do ya think we can do it?
We still have some cool things available to pledge for Dinners, Hoodie packages, Be on the CD. Live house/venue parties etc.
All of you have helped us reach our goal and the AMB is eternally grateful. Thank you again. Please continue to help us share this campaign.
We are going to be recording very soon. It is ALL because of you! Thank you so much!
I am Aury Moore, the lead singer and main songwriter for The Aury Moore Band. I am currently working on my 2nd CD, "Here I Am", with my band, The Aury Moore Band, AKA The AMB. My debut CD "Just a Taste" was a fairly successful music debut, produced by the late Tom Pfaeffle. I am very proud of my first CD and I am eager to share with you, music that has been created for the next CD, "Here I Am".
I am currently working with a new producer, Stevie Adamek. He has stretched me in a very exciting musical direction. (Ironically we also have a couple songs on this new CD produced by Tom Pfaeffle before his passing) This new project has a bit of a stronger rock edge to it, but I will still have a couple soulful blues/gospel based songs that reflect a part of who I am and the influences I grew up with. Hopefully, as was with my debut CD, this new one will appeal to many people with a diverse preference of musical styles.
Currently though... I hate to say it... I am at a Stand Still! I have been working in the studio with The AMB but as it has happened, I am out of funds! UGH! Producing a quality music project can be very pricey. I was able to fund my debut CD because of a couple unfortunate (or not so unfortunate) circumstances. Even though I am joking around in this Kickstarter video, the part where we joke about me getting hit by a car and laid off from my job really did happen and those two situations allowed me to fund my very first CD. No such luck this time! ;) I have not had the funds to afford recording another CD although I have been writing. This is where I hope, You come in! When I heard about Kickstarter and how this website helps creative projects fund themselves...I jumped at the chance! The best part of this campaign is that you get something in return for your pledge! I am not just asking you for money... I am giving you a product in return for your pledge! By pledging to Aury Moore Band campaign, you, in essence, are now a part of The AMB! I guess you could say you are an Executive Producer. I for one like that idea!
We have put together some pledge packages that I think are worthwhile, affordable and fun. If you want to just donate a dollar or two you can but starting at $10 you will get a digital download of the new CD "Here I Am". We have some packages that include a T-Shirt that is only available to people who pledge to this Kickstarter campaign. Some of the items are limited to only a few pledges. We have some one of a kind items that I am excited to offer and I believe the music that will be produced for this CD, will be something you will enjoy, for years to come!
Just to reiterate, if we do not reach our goal of $18,000, we will not be able to complete our CD and you will not be charged for your pledge. You only pay for your pledge if we reach our goal. If enough people pledge and we exceed our goal of $18,000, we will be that much closer to being able to tour and actually meeting some of you face to face. Can you imagine? That would be about the coolest thing yet!
I have been lucky enough to have some very talented musicians who seem to enjoy working with me on stage as well as in the studio. I have been blessed with a magical producer who has a gift for bringing out the best from the musicians he is working with. Please help me share these talented people with you! Help The Aury Moore Band finish this CD "Here I Am". We have a limited time to reach our goal. I am asking; please help us reach our goal!
Thank you for your time! I hope we get to work together on this CD..
Lead Singer of The Aury Moore Band
