Help me bring back the fidelity of the human voice with "Zero."

Dear friends, fans & supporters,

My world is music. It is the center of my existence. I love to sing, write, produce, perform, and do about anything that has to do with my love for the art.

I'm nearing completion of the first part of the "Zero" Trilogy, "Zero.0", due out in March. I can't lie and say that this record isn't going to be a very big next step in my career. I have to thank all of you who have supported me in this endeavor. In the near future, I hope that you're joined by legions of new fans who are as passionate and devoted!

Thus far, everything I have done since "Idol" has been self-funded. As an independent artist, I'm blessed to have a great deal of control over my work, but that autonomy also has a price. Things like radio promotion, web services, video promotion, mixing and mastering fees, attorney fees, touring budget, studio time, producer fees, graphic designers, hiring musicians, travel, equipment, and PR are vital, but cost a great deal of money. Major labels often spend millions on these things for a single project.

Here's where you come in...

When it is released, "Zero.0" (track listing below) will be available for free first, and then on iTunes, so that EVERYONE can enjoy and share my music. This is important to me because the past year and a half has been all about my fans and I working together, and this is no different. The "Zero" Trilogy is primarily about bringing you music that I hope you will love. It's about bringing back the fidelity of the human voice. Today, I'm asking you to be the life blood of this project and help me continue to offer my music to the world.

KICKSTARTER has provided this platform so artists like me can release the music you love independently. I am going to keep the bar low and its up to YOU to show your force and support. If we don't reach our goal, I get nothing...but keep in mind there's no ceiling on how much we can raise!

Help me in my quest to bring the voice back into mainstream Pop/R&B music. I can't do it alone and I look forward to partnering with you in my bold vision. Please pledge what you can! Spread the word, tell everyone you know! For $10,000 YOU can help me deliver "Zero.0" to you.

Thank you for your support. I am so excited for you guys to hear it! With your support, the world can hear it.

With Love Always,

Anoop
