Help Frank Cervantes release his new album, "Forgotten Summer," by pre-ordering the new cd today!

     The music industry as we know it has evolved in a way that transforms a musician into an entrepreneur. 

     I have immersed myself in these transitions over the last few years.  I understand that to make it in this industry, you have to build from the ground up, and that takes a nice overhead to help spark some buzz for your music.  I intend to use this money to press handsome records; that includes finding a designer to make a sleek design for the CD.  I also want to master the audio to industry standards, so that these songs will fit nicely on the radio next to major label singles.  The remainder of the money will be used to promote the album, this includes hiring a publicist who understand my vision as an artist.

     Up until now I have funded the recording of the album independently, working seven days a week and picking up extra shifts in an effort to keep up with my artistic vision.  Please understand that every single dollar donated to this project is appreciated on the highest scale.  Those who know me well, know that I have worked very hard on my music career for many years, and I understand that hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.  Sincerely,

- Frank Cervantes
