We recorded, mastered, painted, photographed, filmed, programmed, and gave you all of our content for FREE.
Meet The Band Famous, entrepreneurs and creators of the Smart Album. With music, art, lyrics, and more available offline on your smartphone, the future of music has arrived.
See our recent feature! Courtesy of 89.3 The Current:
We need your help to take it to the next level. We cannot do this without your help. We need your support to bring the Smart Album to Android, and to help us bring some amazing things into reality!
We have received support from Greg Deocampo (co-founder of Adobe After Effects and the Hoverboard Program, and Special Agent G of Emergency Broadcast Network), Emre Erturk (celebrity designer), Atmosphere, and many others.
**Please show your support for Free in this way.** If we can get 50 people, and ideally more, to pledge with Headtalker to share our campaign on their social media by 11/22/2014, a scheduled social media blast will go out for our project!
Why we need funding:
Terry has struggled as a freelance developer to make time to record, as most of his time (due to freelance) is spent marketing for work, and then working to meet deadlines, and around and around it goes. With this funding he would show the world how bright he really shines.
Zander is in school full time and working full time, he literally has minutes in his day to put into this project. If our project is funded he would be able to dedicate thousands of hours to insure that not only our goals are accomplished, but also paving the way for the next platform of music by offering affordable app options to musicians and artists globally.
Norell is working full time and recording with a humble home studio. If our project is funded, she would have ample time to put into development and recording.
What is the Smart Album?
It is the future of music distribution, and so much more. We have major updates planned if this Kickstarter goes through, such as in-app concerts, purchases, and many other things we cannot reveal just yet.
Help us bring you The Band Famous to the Android mobile platform! Designing and developing mobile apps is expensive and very time consuming. With $12,000 we can focus on the development and deployment of The Band Famous for Android, which we will also be giving away for Free on the Google Play Store once it is complete. The Band Famous for Android is already in development, but with your help we can expedite this process: We can have this complete and launched in time for the Holidays, and before the New Year is upon us, you can have The Band Famous for free on both the iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) and Android mobile platforms.
It takes a LOT of money to make a GREAT album, from studio time, to engineers, mixing, mastering and more. Help us record and master our SECOND album, “Awakening”, which is a tribute album for many, including the lead singer’s late grandfather, her Opa, whom she grew up with. He passed away as a result of an optional surgery on September 7th, 2014.
With $8,000 we can get quality studio time to master our newest tracks and not only will release the album in both the iOS and Android apps, but if we meet our goal we will also release a limited edition CD or Vinyl, depending on what our fans would prefer. We need your input! We anticipate that our second album "Awakening", which we've already begun working on, will be finished no later than July 2015.

For more of our music, download our iOS Smart Album, or go to our website, www.bandfamous.com. Click on "Listen Now" once you enter either Desktop or Mobile and sample a few songs from our EP "Last Words".
If we meet our funding goal we will film a high quality music video for one of the tribute pieces, dedicated to Robin Williams and anyone who has ever struggled with depression and other mental illnesses.
With $5,000 we can get a quality music video in high definition and pay models and actors to bring our vision to life. Anticipated completion date: Summer of 2015.
$2,500 will be used strictly for marketing and distribution. We took a big step and moved to NYC this September, in efforts to expand our artwork and our music. We need your help to bring our visions to life and to market both of our apps, our albums, music videos, and essentially help us get to a point in our lives where we can be the philanthropists we long to be. Some of our greatest inspirations include the likes of Ellen DeGerenes, Robin Williams, Bono, and others who use the fame and fortune they've acquired to give back. We are humanitarians, we grew up with hardship, we have empathy and appreciation. We want to do our part to make the world a better place.
We can do it with your help! We have diverse rewards as incentives for every demographic to donate and get something special and unique in return – from customized art
and body painting
...to private concerts, live-stream concerts, hanging out with the band or collaborating on the album, to being on the set of our music video, to websites, mobile web apps, native apps, and so much more. Go on, have a look for yourself. We can’t do this without you, and we can never thank you enough. When you give to us you get lots back in return!
~$2500 will go towards covering Kickstarter and Amazon fees.
Special thanks to all of you who have taken the time to watch our videos and share the word about our visions with where we want to take The Band Famous next. Help us take it to the next level!
Every RT (Follow us @TheBandFamous!) and share (connect with us on Facebook!) helps us expand our outreach. Every dollar counts – and every dollar we raise beyond our goal will only add to the goodness we will give in return! Thank you all!
Special thanks to http://kickingitforward.org
Risks and challenges
There may be production delays due to emergencies that could arise that would affect one or many of the band members, but we promise to do our absolute best to remain on schedule for the production of the Android app, our second album, "Awakening", our music video, and of course getting the rewards to our supporters!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
