Release Party in NYC A Huge Success • We Need Reviews!
Dear Kickstarter Supporters,
Hopefully those of you who were supposed to receive awards have received them (i.e. t-shirts, CD, sound files, etc.), with the exception of ring tones. If not, please let us know ASAP. The ring tones will be done shortly! It's just a matter of scheduling Makoto to record them, and then we will be on our way to getting them to those that need to receive them.
In other news, the release party in New York City was a huge success! It was completely packed, and was one of the largest audiences for a classical concert in the Rubin Museum's history. We are incredibly grateful for all of the Kickstarter supporters that were in the audience that evening. It was a truly magical evening for both Makoto and Robert Paterson, who also released a marimba album that evening, Six Mallet Marimba.
We Need Reviews ASAP!
Now we need a small favor, but RIGHT AWAY, before this Friday, December 7th: we need reviews of Makoto's album on Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby. This is especially critical right now, because people are shopping for the holidays. Please visit these sites, click the "Like" button at the top of the page on Amazon, and give his album the five stars and a nice review. We would be incredibly grateful.
Here are the links:
What should you write? Anything that will be helpful to potential buyers. Feel free to mention your favorite tracks, write about Makoto's playing, the works on the album, the playing of the other performers, the sound quality, or even the package design. Anything that will make people want to listen and purchase his beautiful album.
It is extremely important that we create some buzz around his project, and rave reviews will go a long way toward encouraging people to listen and purchase the album. Feel free to cross-post in two different places, BTW, there's no rules against that!
Thank you so much!
