"A Journey Through Latin America" CD as heard through guitar compositions by Jose Luis Merlin, Jorge Cardoso, and Gentil Montana.
I am trying to raise $2900 or more to record a new solo guitar CD, "A Journey Through Latin America." I am trying to record and release the CD independently without the help from any record labels.
The recording will cost about $1900, $500 for mastering, $500 for licensing and $1000 for the production of the CD's. If I can at least get the initial amount funded I will be well on my way. I hope that many people will see this like buying the CD in advance.
I am very passionate about Latin American music and feel that my interpretations serve the compositions well. If you share my passion in this music; please take a moment to donate so that I can record these wonderful works!
If you're not familiar with how Kickstarter works, here's a brief overview... Kickstarter is an exciting place where creators (like me) can post a project and get pledges from people who are interested in their ideas and want to help their project move forward. This gives fans (like you) the power to bring the projects they choose to life. Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where a project must be fully-funded or no money changes hands. To make a pledge, supporters choose one of the reward packages (listed to the right). Their credit card or other account will not be charged unless the goal is met. If the goal falls short, no one gets charged and no fees are applied so there's no risk of putting up money for a project that never gets off the ground. (So I hope you are as excited as I am about this project because I can’t do it without your help!!)
