I want to release this record by the beginning of January, 2012.  I have spent the greater part of this year recording the music, which is near completion.  After that is completed, I need to go into a studio to mix and master the record. Then I need to have it pressed, get copies made, and promote.  I am estimating this will cost $4000, which is why I need your help :-)

How is that money being used?

  • Paying the other musicians person making album art will cost $600.
  • Mixing will cost $600.
  • Mastering will cost $800.
  • Getting the CD pressed will cost $1700 for 2000 copies.
  • Posters and other promotional materials will cost $300.
I’m working with the some really great people to make this record happen:
  • Maeve Royce - cellist/violinist, who will need to be paid for her wonderful skill
  • Patience Wyman - album artist and guest vocalist on the record, who will also have to be paid for her skill
  • Alex Champagne of Mobtown Studios - he’s going to be responsible for mixing, and possibly mastering the record.
