WE DID IT!!!!
OMG! We made it to our original goal of $3500! With this money we'll be able to mix and master the 7 songs we've already recorded AND print the actual CDs!
Since we still have some time before the project officially ends, and some people told me they still want to help, everything we raise before the deadline will go towards recording 2 more songs and turning this E.P. into a full-length record!
This has been an amazing few weeks for me, and I'm completely taken back with everyone's generosity. I can't tell you how lucky I feel now.
Over the years, a lot of people have asked how they can help with my music, and I've always been reluctant to take them up on it. I try to rely on hard work alone, but I think this new CD I'm making is something special and I'm worried it won't see the light of day without a little help.
I've saved up enough to cover most of the recording, but I'm looking for sponsors to help cover the cost of mixing, mastering, and printing the actual CDs. In exchange, I'm giving away some really cool prizes like personal iChat concerts, living room concert parties with ice cream (or sorbet), a horse-drawn carriage ride in Central Park, and an acoustic cover of any song you choose. There's even an option to basically just buy the new record in advance which will help make sure we make it in the first place.
Already my friends at Arcadia Creative donated the project video above and my grandpop gave me a $50 check, so we're well on our way!
I'll be posting exclusive videos and music for sponsors over the next few weeks. If you have any other ideas for cool prizes or videos to post while the project is going on, let me know, and please pass this along to anyone you think might want to help. I've been extremely lucky to have such supportive fans, and even if you can't help this way, I hope you'll keep listening and spreading the word.
