Who am I?
My name is Griffen Alexander, I reside in Kansas City MO, and I make music. Some have said that I'm the greatest musician they've ever heard. I'm related to those people.
What am I doing?
In May of this year I graduated from college. Rather than using my degree, I decided to pursue my dream and make music full-time. Surprisingly, it's kind of working out for me and I'm currently touring the country promoting an album that I recorded in 2006 (remember, 2011 is right around the corner). You're welcome to hear it at www.griffenalexander.com, however it's outdated and I'm actually running out of physical copies of the album to sell anyway. For an independent musician, selling albums at shows is a significant part of their income, not to mention the whole purpose most of us are musicians- to share our music with all of you :)
So I'm making a new album! I've written way too many songs over the last 4 years for one album, but I've narrowed it down to my very best and I'm ready to record them. The only thing standing in my way is funding. The money I raise here will go toward the recording, mastering, manufacturing, and promotional costs.
The above video explains the project more thoroughly, so please take a minute and watch it. It's short and humorous. If you've got a few more minutes to spare and would like to get to know me better, watch the funniest video I've ever been a part of (and dare I say that you'll see today!) here:
Who is Griffen Alexander?
With just a few days left before the project deadline, feel free to spread the project link and this "Who is Griffen Alexander" video all over the internet. As the project video at the top explains, it's all or nothing funding, so if I don't raise every penny of my 10,000 goal, nothing happens, no money changes hands and I don't get to make the album. So spreading the word would be great. And any pledge amount helps- don't let how far I have to go discourage you. I'm confident we can do this together even with just the last few days we've got left.
It's important to mention that by supporting this album you're receiving some pretty cool rewards in return. I spent a lot of time coming up with these and I hope you're as excited about receiving them as I am about giving them. If you'd like something that's not on the list, just message me.
This is the most important thing I've ever tried to do in my career and I can't do this without every one of you. So let's make this album together!
Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!
