MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN… SO LET ME BREATHE!
Hi everybody! It’s Reschad Oliver, your new favorite Hip-Hop Artist! You just don’t know it yet. Welcome to my KickStarter Campaign.
Before I break down the “what your contributions are going towards and what rewards you'll receive" let me tell you a little about my “Music & Me” (album title from Nate Dogg… if you were wondering). I’m a Hip-Hop/everything Artist, being raised in Miami, Florida you learn how to grow up quick "or die trying"(Boondocks reference from the Soul plane 2 episode… if you were wondering). I was only 10 years old when I heard Nas check the scene with his classic album Illmatic, and since then I’ve been hooked! Performing, writing songs and even producing instrumentals all in hopes to hone in on my craft.
Serving as a active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces has taken me from the Florida shores to the cold plains of North Dakota and abroad to the elegant landscapes of Japan & Singapore. There I learned a ton about music dynamics and how it affects different cultures. And since my return to America's heartland, I’ve come into my own. Performing at different genre venues, collaborating with fellow musicians, writing as much as I can, working on new music and pitching songs to publishers & labels alike. I’m incredibly proud of the music created thus far and I'm happy to share it with you.
Here are the teaser's of previous songs I've recorded and released ↴
Here is the music video we filmed for the song "Beautiful Nightmare feat. Alex Isaak" ↴
Here is the music video we filmed in Okinawa, Japan at Kadena AB for the 18th CMS theme song I've created called "We Are the Dragons" ↴
But there has been something missing… and this is where you come in. The time is now, to put together an album touching on sensitive topics (emotional & physical scars, life in Miami, the ills of military life, etc.) most would shy away from, the album will be called "Smoke & Mirrors". And I need your partnership.
So, this is how it works. When you become a BACKER of this project, you can choose to contribute any amount of money. I, in return, will send you a reward depending on how much you contributed. My campaign will be running for 30 DAYS ONLY (Sad face). If I don’t reach my goal before then… your credit card won’t be charged and all of that money vanishes (poof). It’s a all or nothing campaign.
This is what your contributions are going towards:
·Professionally Recorded, Mixed & Mastered the album (Most Important)
·Digital & Physical Release of the album i.e. Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, etc. (Kind of Important)
·Marketing & Promotion (Really Important)
So, that’s about it… when you decide to partner with me on this monumental project, you'll be receiving more than mere music and rewards. You'll be receiving a declaration of music independence. It may seem crazy… but I’ve never been more confident. This album will change perspectives as well as give you something to bounce too. "And you’re going to love me!" (And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going - Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls... if you were wondering).
THANK YOU FOR PARTNERING WITH ME TO MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge that I'm going to face while completing this project is the fact that I'm doing everything by myself (of course, I have family helping). I'm unsigned and have no management team working with me. Being my own manager, web designer, publicist, etc. is a lot of work... but luckily, thanks to the military, I have a lot of discipline and a crazy work ethnic.
I have always been in control of my own music career. So... yes, it's going to take sometime. It's going to be a little challenging... but I'm prepared, organized and excited to work on making my dreams a reality!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
