A lot of people have been emailing me asking for a number I'm trying to reach now, and I've been afraid to post it because (to me) its a big number. So here it is..........$18,000 is the goal. I've added up the costs and $18,000 would cover everything completely with a little left over for travel to New York for recording and travel to LA to shop the EP and have some showcases. I also took into account the little tour that will take place in the spring or summer. More info on the mini kickstarter tour will come soon. Then we have the two EP's. The Acoustic EP and the fully produced one (NY one). and printing for both. I wanted to put a number out there that would cover everything because a lot of people were asking. But even if we don't reach that, I'm just happy that we've made it as far as we did. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!
The songs are coming along great and I can't wait to show everyone!!!!!!!! I hope you all enjoyed your holidays!
Here's a link to one of the songs that will be on the new CD!
So, I had no idea that I would raise this much money in this short period of time, so I now I'm starting to think bigger! So far I'm looking for better producers because I now have a better budget. Also, a lot of people are donating $1000.00 or more and the deal was that I would play at a venue near your town. So it looks like I might do a tour! I'll keep you all updated! I can't believe how amazing my supporters are! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! :)
If I reach or exceed my goal of $3,000 in 60 days, then this project will go forward! The money that you pledge will go toward producing my new album and you great Kickstarter folks will score great tokens of my appreciation. If I don’t make at least the $3,000 goal you will not be charged and I will receive no money for this project.
Working on my music has become my full time job. I'm pretty good at saving my money, but I don't have enough to produce this EP. As soon as the EP is finished I want to go out to LA and pursue a career in music. The better this album is the more likely it is that I will catch the eye of fans and labels. I'm taking a big risk but I feel like it will all pay off in the end!
To keep everyone updated, I'll be posting a FREE download of one of the songs on the EP as soon as it is finished!
Your kind donations will be used for:
Recording and producing the album
Printing the album
Shopping the album to labels
Gas to get me to LA
Beginning my music career!
To tell you a little bit about the EP here is some info:
I don't have a title for it yet, so if you have any ideas, shoot them to me!
The songs are:
Fool: This is an upbeat love song.
Cowardly Thief: This song is about being extremely frustrated. (I sing this song at the end of the Kickstarter video.) :)
Pray: I wrote this for my brother and sister.
Who Are You?: I wrote this for my family.
Quicksand: This song is on my last EP but was half in Spanish, but I re-wrote it and added a bridge. :) This song is actually about how I fell in love with my salsa dancing partner a few years ago. :)
Thank you so much to everyone who keeps up with me and thank you to all of you who pledge! It really is going to help me out to get this finished! Thank you, thank you, Thank you!
