Hi there!

My name is Sami Mark Yahya and this is my third Kickstarter campaign for my electronic music project Faderhead. Thanks to the generous support I received on last year's album and the good feedback I received on all exclusive backer items, I decided that I'd like to try it again for the upcoming album "Asteria".


What You Get & What I Need

Your early support will grant you access to exclusive items and experiences not available anywhere else. It will also allow me to pay for the mastering of the album, pressing of CDs and to hire a promo company to get this album out into the world. I am seeking €5000 (approx $5600 USD) to cover these expenses.  That's approx. €3000 after fees and taxes are deducted. More can always help, but if you know anything about the music industry €3,000 is a pretty small sum to launch a new album into the world.


Other Ways You Can Help

Can't contribute? No problem! You can still help. Spread the word about this campaign and the new album on your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, blog, or whatever your preferred method of social media is. I truly appreciate any level of support you can give to the new album, so thank you!

Risks and challenges

The main challenges will be to get remixes/vocal/recordings/shows scheduled so that my touring schedule doesn't interfere with the backer's schedule.
