prog·ress
n.
1. Movement, as toward a goal; advance.
2. Development or growth: students who show progress.
3. Steady improvement, as of a society or civilization: a believer in human progress.
4. A ceremonial journey made by a sovereign through his or her realm.

To paraphrase one of the members of the dynamic Detroit hip hop duo, Progress Report, “it’s not where you’re from, it’s where you are [going].” Progress Report is all about forward movement. This campaign was started so fans and supporters of Progress Report can help them continue their development as a professional music brand.

D. Allie (aka David Strauss) and Eddie Logix (aka Richard Solecki) are actively preparing for the imminent release of their self-titled debut as a duo. That means they are not relying on this campaign to get things going. Things are already in motion; they have been for some time. With over ten years of joint experience working on their craft as hip hop performance artists, D. and Eddie are not beginners. This campaign is a great opportunity to invest in a group that will not only entertain you with great music, but also make you proud.

Case in point, Progress Report’s debut album is already recorded, mixed and mastered. You may have seen the video for their first single, “Wake Up,” that they produced on their own.

Progress Report is set to be released in the first quarter of 2011 and the guys are looking to go on a multi-city tour to promote the release. Both of these hard-working gentlemen are pulling quadruple duty getting funds together to do everything possible to ensure their project does not fall just on deaf ears. They want a shot at the hearing ears as well. In order to do that, they will need to commission some PR help to work press and radio outlets.

Again, your contribution is an investment. If the money is raised, it ensures that the CD will be pressed on time and in the way Progress Report intended for it to be created. The guys guarantee that you will find value at each level that they have arranged. At $10, you can consider it a pre-purchase for the album. Not to mention, you get free entry to the record release party to be held sometime in the spring. At $250, you can consider yourself a very important person to Progress Report and you can expect a showing of gratitude above and beyond what is already going to be in store for you. In closing, know that your funds will be used wisely in securing one goal - having Progress Report one step closer to making two promising individuals career artists and independent business owners.

If you are interested in greater opportunities with the dynamic Detroit hip hop duo, then contact David directly or peruse their sponsorship package.
