Hello everybody! 

My name is Aaron and my passion is music!  I couldn't see myself doing anything else with my life.  That is the reason why I currently attend Drexel University and am a sophomore in their Music Industry Program.  I have learned a ton and have met so many awesome people here so far, but the biggest lesson I have learned is to just do what you love.  For me, that is writing music and performing in front of anyone who will listen!  It is the most enjoyable thing I have ever done in my life! 

In order to make a career such as this happen successfully, it needs a "kickstart"!  That is where your help and support comes in so crucially for me.  I literally cannot express the thanks that I feel for each and every one of you supporting me in this crazy journey!  Expenditures to make a project like this include: 

-Studio time (recording, engineering, producing, mixing, mastering) 

-Marketing (CD mass distribution, music video, photography, graphic design)

-Touring (transportation, gas, food, lodging, equipment)

-Merchandise (t-shirts, posters, vinyl, stickers, etc) 

And so much more to come in the future!  In order to thank you for your help, you will see tons of rewards to the RIGHT (>>>) side of your screen, some include: signed copies of my EP, exclusive merchandise and maybe even a private acoustic performance!  You can pledge however much you want past a specific reward of your choosing!  Keep in mind that some rewards are even cumulative!  

I sincerely appreciate whatever you are able to donate in order to help me reach my goal!  You are truly making my dream come true!  A HUGE SHOUT-OUT to my loving sister Laurel Deming and Karl Neiswender for the awesome photography so far!  As well as Ryan Boring for the amazing promo video, which if you haven't seen yet...you should!  RIGHT NOW! 

Risks and challenges

As a college student, I still have responsibilities such as schoolwork, studying and even a few jobs on the side. Luckily though, I am studying Music Industry so I am surrounded by music all of time! Living here in Philly has really given me the inspiration to go ahead with my dreams and make them happen! I have been able to juggle all of these activities at the same time so far, music included, and I plan to continue.

The planning of my music career has LITERALLY been in the works for over two years now! As a senior at Lenape High School in Medford, NJ I knew that this was what I wanted to do with my life. I am now a sophomore at Drexel University and COULD NOT be in a BETTER PLACE OR TIME than right here and right now to make this a reality!

Here is just a quick look into my future plans after all of you lovely, lovely people so graciously help me fund a successful Kickstarter Campaign:

-Record, mix and master my single by mid-March

-Fly a top notch, professional filmographer out from California (already lined up!) to shoot my music video

-Spring Break: FINALLY launch my Facebook Music Page, Bandcamp, SoundCloud, YouTube and iTunes account (and all other forms of social media)

-Gain traction on the World Wide Web through the help of all of YOU AWESOME PEOPLE!!! <<< this is crucial in allowing me to reach my next step...

-START PLAYING SHOWS!!! Booking agents love artists with a ton of "LIKES" on Facebook because they know that they will draw a crowd

-All the while, I will be in the studio recording the rest of the EP!!! Busy, busy, busy...

-Spring Term will be wrapping up at Drexel and I will be fully ready (merchandise included) to hit the road for a SUMMER TOUR featuring my FIRST ALBUM!

As you can see, all of your donations are greatly appreciated and will be put to the FULLEST OF USE! I cannot thank you all enough for your support!

God Bless!

Much love,
Aaron Deming
