Brandon Robertson is in the process of releasing his very first album, Bass’d on a True Story. As the title implies, the main goal of this album is to give the audience an opportunity to venture on a musical journey through Brandon’s 15-year career path as a musician. This album serves as an audio-biography of his life story and shows the growth and matureness of transitioning from a young man to an adult.
The money raised through this kickstarter will be used to mix and master all the tracks on the album, the production of physical copies, copyrighting the music, obtaining necessary mechanical licenses, and inquiring a professional publicist to assist with marketing the album. Any extra money will be used for following: artwork, rewards from the kickstarter, merchandise, radio play, magazines, newsletters, featured spotlights, and shipping cost.
The recording process has already been completed and paid for by Brandon. The intended release month of the album is July of 2019. Your donations will help complete the remaining album production!
