Welcome to my "Very First Time" Single Launch Radio Takeover! 

Hey everyone! I'm Keith Masters.

I am very excited to drop my new single “Very First Time” in a few months! The song reminds me of summer; driving with the windows down on a sunny day, but at the same time it's versatile enough where I can see it being a hit at a night club! My goal is to get my song into radio rotation, but I need your help to get it there!

Every person who pledges to my campaign will receive, through email, an MP3 of "Very First Time" before it is officially released!

I created this campaign to raise funds for recording, remixes, shooting the music video and the public relations & radio push.

My Accomplishments:

On my own, I've been able to write, record and release songs that have achieved various levels of success such as:

-"I Can't Go Now" which features Sarah Leichtenberg was used on the NBC prime-time comedy The New Normal

Listen to "I Can't Go Now" here! and watch the episode where the song is featured at 00:36 seconds.

- My music has been played on major television networks like ESPN, NBC, Fox Sports, the NFL Network

- I wrote the team song for the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury professional basketball team, listen to the song here.

- My music has been featured on iTunes along with major artists like Usher, Ne-Yo, Boys Noize, Deadmau5 & Fake Blood

I've even appeared on an episode of HBO's Entourage!  And that's only a bit of what I've done so far. With your help, I believe we can get my single on the radio!

Rewards:

I have included a bunch of awesome prizes in exchange for your generous donations such as:

For pledging $50 you can be in my MUSIC VIDEO for "Very First Time"

For pledging $40 you can get an Eco-friendly C4 Belt

For pledging $35 you will receive a Modify Watch

For pledging $20 you will receive a Keith Masters T-Shirt with the logo featured below (same logo used for Keith Masters stickers)

For pledging $250 you can have your brand featured in my music video for "Very First Time"

There are also exclusive songs from me, including special remixes of my hit song Gary Busey, listen to the original song.

Tickets to a Cubs game, a private concert from me, and that’s only a few options- check out the rest!

Why Do I Need Your Help?

These days, it's almost impossible to compete with major labels. They have hundreds of thousands of dollars to manufacture the exposure for any of their artists. Most times, these artists have their way to fame paid for, without having the talent, work ethic or the paid dues to accompany them. Well I don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars. What I do have, however, is a whole lot of talent, great music, the drive to succeed and a lot of incredible support from people like you. I think we can reach a high level of success with this single, and with your contribution - only the sky is the limit.

100% of all donations go towards the "Very First Time" campaign so PLEASE donate what you can and spread the word to friends and family. Getting the word out to others is every bit as important as the donations themselves. If I don't reach the total goal, then none of your donations go towards the campaign. So let's make magic happen here and together we can get real good music the attention that it deserves - for the Very First Time. Thanks so much! Let's take over the dance floors!

Special thanks to Supergoodmusic for being behind me and helping to make my journey so amazing over the past few years. Be sure to follow me on Twitter & Soundcloud and become a fan on my Facebook Fan Page so you all can stay in tune with updates on the campaign. 

“Very First Time” features Sarah Leichtenberg and was written by me with help from Curtis Marolt who also produced the track. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is actually getting this goal accomplished. Even if my Kickstarter is successful, that does not automatically guarantee that my single will make it onto the radio. It may take months after, but this is an important step in laying the groundwork in reaching the intended level of success.

With this initiative, you would become an invaluable member of my team! This project is a top priority for me, and so I will be sure to maintain focus in order to work through any obstacles that may come between me and my deadlines.

The main risk comes in embarking on this initiative to begin with and we're already here. The hard stuff is behind us! LETS HIT THIS TARGET & TAKE OVER THE DANCE FLOORS!!!
