Why this Project is Important To Me:
This album will be a new chapter in my life. After creating 3 albums with record labels, I am ready to do this on my own! I want the music to be absolutely pure from my mind, to your ears. I also want to challenge myself with new music and new aspects of the music business! With your help, this project will be an example that it IS possible to express Art the way it was intended and to do it independently.
My Vision for this Album
"We Are Made of Stars" will consist of original songs in honor of the planets along with melodies inspired by our universe. My well known genres of classical, flamenco and rock on ukulele will be enjoyed by the listener.
The cost of this project will run in excess of $30,000. Kickstarter will help cover a large part of my expenses. Below is a short list of costs:
- Recording studio/ fees
- Sound engineer/ fees
- Equipment rental
- Graphics and art design
- Editing/ mastering/ copyrighting
- Pressing and packaging cds
- Promotion (shows, props, tour)
Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges include breaking the bank! ;)
Art cannot be rushed so production delays, packaging delays, mastering etc. may occur which can add up. Also since this is my first experience doing everything on my own, I may forget a step or two which may require more time. I will make sure that the album will be done by the end of this year to make way for more speedy albums in the future.
If you want to achieve goals you've never achieved before, you have to do things you've never done.
