About this project

I have released my album Keys of love after completely Independently funding the recording, and working with a talented group of producers and Video producers. The video shows the single Love me and my hair which is the first single released from the Album, and second video , Summerday, both produced by Herb Middleton.

You can listen here to the digital album 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Keys-of-Love/dp/B008U6V34S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1350080890&sr=8-2

In order that the album is a success, The following remains to be completed and/or paid for in order to release the Physical copy of the album

             artwork creation £200

             mixing mastering £500

              manufacturing of CD & LP and( 2 x singles to Vinyl subject to funds raised )  £3,000

             promotion/advertising public relations £3,000 (5 weeks - 2 singles)

We estimate this to be £7,000 , but ideally the more we raise the bigger the radio campaign for the album . 

The promo to radio is £600 per month via a recognised act plugger who has supported acts to mainstream radio. 

The manufacture is for a 8 page colour CD press 2,000 copies minimum (depending on budget raised) and 500 vinyl to encourage DJ coverage

We have invested in our own Touring equipment (full PA) and have began UK tour dates to support the release of the single and album (independently) Album Keys of love Released on the 14th August 2012. 

We have already had the video of first single Love me and my Hair released to Vevo, and it gained over 50,000 hits in a week. 

We thank you very much for your support of this project and are humbled if you feel to support our Art! xxxx

Risks and challenges

The risks are that we don't raise enough to gain a significant press of product, both for promotion and for sale. Also, we need the radio to pick up on the album, the single did already gain coverage from mainstream radio, we are hoping the album follows suit.

Launching to TV is more difficult, we have two videos completed. This project does not include video production on any of the other singles.
