My project is to write,record, mix/master, and distribute an album of original spoken word poetry and music. I plan to do this on my own and all digitally. With the advent of recording software and online digital distribution, it is now possible for an independent full time artist (i.e. poor) to produce and release material with none of the traditional start up/production costs.

I can do all of this from home with a high power laptop, software, headphones, a quality microphone, digital audio interface, and an internet connection.

While more readily available and cheaper than ever before, all these things still cost a good amount of money. Being a full time independent artist (again, poor) I need some help obtaining them. Your help.
