Welcome to my Kickstarter campaign. If you are new to my music or are just discovering this project, welcome! If you are a seasoned professional, glad to see you back.
We have been on a great path to success over the past two years. Last year I had the honor of being named Billboard's Artist of the Year in the Contemporary Jazz field due to radio play we have received since 2015. We had two songs, "Fool Me Once" and "Where Do You Want To Go", reach #1 on Billboard. Our two other singles, "Back to Your Heart" and "Open Up", peaked at #3. With so much ammunition right now, and a new album coming out soon, I am focusing on how to reach as many people as possible. That brings me to the fact that we need to shoot some professional music videos.
If you go on the internet (which, you’re here, so…), you know that YouTube is the first place you go when you want to find the music of your new favorite artist. So, do me a favor. Go YouTube search “Lindsey Webster”. Besides the video for “Fool Me Once”, and the beautiful live videos we shot with SoulandJazzLIVE in London, there ain’t much out there. We must change this!
This is the perfect opportunity for us to utilize Kickstarter once again. It is time for our videos to reflect our music: passionate, well thought out, high quality, and beautiful. In the last year, we have had many fans inquire about supporting our music through crowdfunding. This is a great way to be a part of our amazing musical journey!
So, here is the deal – we plan on shooting two beautiful music videos and two creative lyric videos with the budget we raise from Kickstarter. This will pay for the production, videographers, directors, stylist, etc. We will also be buying some lighting equipment that we will use for making live performance videos from our studio. The main goal of this campaign is facilitate more content, content, content!
The main videos for this album will be for our first and second singles from our upcoming album, “Love Inside”. We have some really great concepts for the videos. We plan on shooting at multiple locations in the Hudson Valley, all well-known, and all beautiful. The lyric videos will be produced by aspiring young artists that are chosen through competitions in "art networking" sites. We don't want to give too much away, so you will just have to wait until the videos are finished to see!
With this video, we will be able to give our viewers, fans, and friends, something more than just music. We have always had a love for film, and both Keith and myself will have a huge part in their production and creation. This is an extension of who we are as artists, and we cannot wait to share with you what we have always wanted to do: Create MUSIC VIDEOS that match the quality and creativity of our music!
Risks and challenges
The only thing holding us back from creating these videos is not reaching our goal here on Kickstarter. Otherwise, everyone, including a director, film crew, and stylist, are all set. We are currently scouting locations and developing storyboards and concepts. So, let's make some music videos!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
