Zuby: Perseverance - New Album & Tour

£15,138

FINAL DAY ANNOUNCEMENT:

Chyeeea! We have reached the funding target! Thank you to everybody who has backed my project. If you haven't pledged yet there is still time!

If we hit the stretch goal of £16,000 then I'll upgrade all of your physical rewards with a commemorative 'Perseverance' wristband - exclusive to Kickstarter.

Hey, welcome to my Kickstarter page! I’m working on a new album and UK tour and would love for you to be a part of it.

It's been 4 years since my Kickstarter campaign for The Year of Zuby and I'm still extremely grateful to all of you who supported it and helped me bring the project to life. I learned A LOT from the experience and your support has really helped me to elevate my music career. 

So thank you once again. I'm now working on something even bigger and better...

► What is happening?  

Perseverance: The Best of Zuby is the name of my upcoming album, planned for release in Summer 2018. It will be a ‘best of Zuby’ compilation, featuring my best and most popular songs spanning 10+ years of my music career.

The album will also contain many new tracks such as Remember The Name, Getting Mine (feat. Wanz) and 3:16 (Stone Cold).

► Why Kickstarter?

I’m running this campaign to help fund the release and promotion of my new album, as well as a UK tour to follow.  

Creating a new album is an expensive process, especially for an independent musician such as myself. Once the music has been produced, recorded, mixed, mastered and the CDs have been pressed, there isn’t much left in the budget for promotion and touring. This severely limits the potential reach of the music that I’ve worked so hard to create.  

With your support, we can cover all of the necessary costs to complete the album on time and also have sufficient funds to invest in music video production, promotion and professional PR to make the release as successful as possible.  

This Kickstarter campaign will also help to fund a UK Tour in Autumn/Winter 2018. The more successful it is, the more cool stuff we can do. I have a lot of ideas! :-)

My goal is to inspire millions of people through my music.

► What do I get for pledging?

Consider the rewards my way of saying THANK YOU for supporting my project.

I’ve created a cool range of exclusives for pledgers, ranging from signed albums to exclusive merchandise. There's even the chance to have your name listed in the credits or be mentioned on the album! 

By supporting, you will be one of the very first to people get a copy of the Perseverance - The Best of Zuby album. I’ll also keep you up to date with the progress of the album and tour – with regular updates and opportunities exclusive to Kickstarter supporters.

Risks and challenges

This project is very low risk. I have already recorded, mixed and mastered the majority of songs for the 'Perseverance' album - so the funds raised from this campaign will mainly go towards release activity (including manufacturing CDs and merchandise) and promotion for both the album and tour (video production, PR, digital advertising & marketing).

A significant amount will also go towards touring costs (venue booking, travel, accommodation, staff costs, etc.)

Challenges involved with the tour include booking suitable venues, staffing, technical aspects and logistics. I have experience from booking my own gigs and tours for many years, so I am confident that I can manage this to make sure the tour goes ahead as planned.
