Guys! I can't believe that with your help and support we hit my $20,000 in the first 14 days. It's truly amazing and I cannot thank you enough. Because of you I will be able to get my project started on time and I'm extremely excited. I also would like to thank the guys at Kickstarter for featuring my project on their front page. It was really nice to see them support me. Thank you!
I have 11 days left of my project, and I don't really want to just have it sit there un-active for the next week and a half, it's not in my nature to do that! So let's keep spreading the word, and not that I would expect it because what has happened so far has been phenomenal, but...
IF I HIT $30,000 BEFORE THE END OF MY PROJECT, THEN EVERYONE WHO HAS PLEDGED SO FAR, OR WHO PLEDGES FROM NOW ON WILL GET A FREE DIGITAL COPY OF MY NEXT EP 'I DON'T BELIEVE YOU'. NOT ONLY THAT BUT THEY WILL ALSO GET AN EXCLUSIVE VIDEO OF ME SINGING ALL THE SONGS FROM THE EP LIVE FROM A RANDOM LOCATION!!
I LOVE YOU!!!! Thank you so much! Greg xx
Hello. I'm Greg Holden. I'm a poet and a singer from the North of England but I currently live in Brooklyn, NY. I self-funded and self-released my first 2 records which some of you may own & I'm about to do the same thing with my next full-length album, but it's going to cost me an arm and a leg and at this rate my first born child.
I'm an independent artist, so I have full creative freedom with my releases which is amazing, but on the flip side I have to fund EVERYTHING myself: Recording, mixing, pressing, publicising, my website, merchandise, EVERYTHING. If I want to do this properly and professionally, it's essentially impossible without some sort of financial help.
Thanks to the amazing people at Kickstarter I have been given a platform with which I can attempt to raise the money I need to get this project off the ground. I'm trying to raise $20,000 in ONE MONTH. This might seem like a huge figure, and it is, but as far as what this project will cost to complete, it's about a third of the budget, so I need all the help I can get. The great thing is, if I reach my goal, we can keep going and more cool things can happen! Who knows what will happen!
Why should you help me?
Well firstly, you can go to bed knowing that you helped get me a little closer to something I've been working towards for the past 3 years. Also, upon the completion of my project, which I hope to be at some point in the middle of next year, you will not only receive an abundance of rewards personally sent from me, but we may well be seeing each other too. A full list of incentives and rewards are listed on the right hand side of this page, take a look and see how much you'd like to pledge. Anything will be MASSIVELY appreciated.
If I reach my goal, then at the end of this year, I'll be heading to LA and into the studio to make my first full-length album that I'll be dedicating to you kind people. However, if I don't reach my goal, you all get your money back, I don't make my album and the rewards won't be born. The thought both saddens and scares me.
I'm really excited about this month. PLEASE PLEDGE WHAT YOU CAN! Spread the word, tell everyone you know! In October, I'm going to record a 4-track EP especially to raise funds for this project and I can't wait for you to hear it.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CONSIDERING MY KICKSTARTER PROJECT EVERYONE!!! THANK YOU!!!!
