Hi, my name is Matt I'm a singer songwriter I live in Austin, TX With my wife, and two kids.
I just finished making a new record It's called 'Accidental Thief' It's pretty much done Now i have to pay for it.
Making a record costs a lot of money The amounts vary from project to project But these are approximate amounts for MY project The studio & engineer is about $8000 The musicians cost about $3000 Mastering might cost another $1500 Then you have to press the CDs that's anywhere from $2000-$7000.
I have set the funding goal for this project at $8000 It is not all of the money that i need for this project Not even close But it would make a huge dent And since this is a make or break scenario It seemed like a reasonable amount to try for And if you want, you can pledge as little as $1 And we will still be very thankful For your help.
After all that, there is money to be spent on promotion Radio promoter Publicist Posters & Stickers T-Shirts. All of that is maybe another $10,000.
And i don't have to do all of these things But after self-releasing 7 CDs And working as a professional musician For over 20 years I've found that all of these things help And make it much easier to sell those CDs On the road.
And that's where i am a lot of the time On the road And i love getting to travel and play music But i also miss being with my family And they miss me.
It was their idea to put up this page And they wanted to help with the rewards Because they love me, and love that i love to play music for you.
And i would rather give rewards & prizes To those of you who love what i do Than pay credit card companies. So thank you.
love, matt (see examples of Kathie's work here... http://www.kathiesever.virb.com )
