About this project
WHO IS ARYES...
My name is Alexis "Aryes" Armstrong I am from Rochester, NY and WE are about to make my dream come true!!!
Aryes Season is the debut album from Aryes. Packed with non-stop energy and witty lyrics, Aryes is ready for the world to share and embrace her vision with the Aryes Season Project: Next Level Campaign.
When you think about the multi-platium artists such as Mya, Tamia and Beyonce, you have to think funding for just recording a CD start at about $300,000! I plan to do everything with about 5% of that budget.
Here's the breakdown...
Recording/Duplication Budget $2500
Advertising Budget $2500
Photoshoot Budget $2000
Video Budget $3500
Album/Video Release Party $2500
Team Aryes Street Team Budget $2000
5% Kickstarter Fee $750
5% Amazon Processing Fee $750
*This is subject to change as these were LOW estimations for each section based on what I want to do and estimated costs from vendors involved.*
Pick a reward that feels right to you and Please join US as WE continue this musical journey.
As a backer at any level, there will be BACKER ONLY media on this kickstarter site that will be accessable for ONLY the Kickstarter donors. As a added incentive I am going to send a very special gift for everypne that donated over the VIP Level before Christmas.
If I surpass my goals I wont have to cut as many cost and will be able to do more things involving my fans. As a new artist my fans mean a lot to me and I want to be able to reach out to them and also make a high quality album they will enjoy but also contains crazy levels of passion, love, and drive.
Something else to consider:
I AM OVERLY CREATIVE & RESOURCEFUL. Meaning this projects' Marketing, Design, PR team, Plans & Budgets have been RESEARCHED by me over time. Yet I am always open to suggestion or references. This is something ALONE that most recording artist have and it can be very expensive. I have studied Communications, PR and Marketing and soaked up all the information I could and applied it to this Project. If you have any concerns about budgets, marketing plans or schedule of events, PLEASE don't hesitate to e-mail me or have a Skype Meeting.
Even though I need dontations, I understand that the economy is currently shakey and this project is not a need
(even tho I am working like my life depends on it) I'm very practical. I would love it if everyone who donates
feel like the rewards are special and that I appreciate the support.
Life is a book of pages...
We make Epic Fails & Heroic Comebacks
Every chapter defines who we really are when no one is watching or keeping track This second chapter of Love, Passion, Drive and support in abundance will prove to be the chapter that didn't
start the ball to rolling, but became the momentum to NEVER let it stop.
Absolutely! Once you donate, you may want to increase your pledge amount or change your incentive reward to a different one. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button has been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.
No. Only you and the project creator will be able to see your pledge amount.
In order to make this really special, a lot of work from myself as well as other people has to go into it, and then there are a number of costs for the orchestra recordings, artwork creation, booklet layout and printing, and last but not least, the Box Set manufacturing. But together I believe we can do this, and I'm super excited about this project!
