About this project

Show Me The Light- Jim Mayer/Shannon Selig 

Thank you for taking a moment to check out my Kickstarter campaign. 

My name is Shannon Selig and I recently moved to Nashville, TN. After a year of touring and writing new songs, it is my dream to record my first album in Nashville. This dream all starts with YOU. 

Usually a record company funds a project like this with a budget of upwards of a hundred thousand dollars. As an independent artist I don't have the backing of a label, so I've put together my own business plan of how to make an album for $18,000. 

  • Production, Mixing, Engineering: $6,500
  • Nashville Session Musicians: $ 6,000
  • Studio Time: $2,000
  • CD Design/ Duplication: $1,500
  • Mastering: $2000

** If we do not reach $18,000, the project will not be funded (your credit card will not be charged) and no prizes will be sent out. Sooo... Let's make it happen!

WHAT YOU CAN DO: 

  • Check out the "THANK YOU PACKAGES" Choose from signed guitars, microphones, VIP concert packages, music collections, and much more. 
  • PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD via Facebook, Twitter, Email, Texts, Phone, Snail Mail ... etc :) Your word is what is going to make this a success. 

If we end up raising more than our goal, the extra money will go towards merchandise, touring, radio and promotion. Those are the things that help make an independent release a HUGE success. 

Thank y'all so much for taking the time to view my project. It really means the world to me that you want to be a part of my dream. 

Love, 

Shannon

Risks and challenges

Staying on track with our timeline will be the hardest part of getting the album completed, but I believe that with the team I have supporting me in the studio we will be able to complete a fantastic record.
