I've waited a really long time to make this dream come true. Not only is it time- but I am ready. www.facebook.com/CadeBittnerEP

IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!

My name is Cade Bittner and I am finally going to release my debut EP!  For all of you who don't know what an EP is- an EP is an extended play.  It's an album but roughly made up of 3-6 songs.  

I am a singer at heart who lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota after an 8-year whirlwind living and traveling the world while residing between New York City and Los Angeles- working for a musician and a celebrity.  I have always sang (especially in my shower) and done some back up singing, but never taken my turn at going solo.  This is a life-long dream of mine and I am finally ready to put out a CD!

Kickstarter is simple, amazing and- in my opinion- the future of music.  You donate money to support me and in return you get a reward for your generous donation.  See the column on the right side of this page and scroll down to see the various levels and packages I am offering.  

THE BOTTOM LINE.

I need to raise a minimum of $3,000 to make this happen and so I am asking for your help.  If I do not raise that much money by this campaign deadline, no one gets charged for their donation and the project is off--  I cannot make this record.  If I raise my fundraising goal, MY DREAM COMES TRUE!!!  Even better, if I raise more than that (which happens all of the time on Kickstarter), I can record more songs that I have and deliver an album that I honestly believe you will love. Here's what the cost will cover:

  • Hiring musicians to record the music
  • Renting a recording studio 
  • Hiring a producer to help 'put it all together'
  • Hiring an engineer to mix & master the tracks
  • Preparing the CD (duplicating & packaging)
  • Getting the album up on iTunes

THE MAKING OF...

Please follow the documenting of this crazy journey!  I am recording videos to give you step by step insight into the 'making of' this EP.  Please visit my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/CadeBittnerEP) and click "Like" to stay tuned and updated when new videos arrive.

IN CLOSING:

Your support in any amount would mean the world to me and my appreciation could never be expressed in words.  Please help me in any way you can and THANK YOU- in advance- for supporting publicly funded music and this boys dream.

With gratitude,
