I know, I know, you see that I’ve reached over 100% and you’re thinking:
1. What more does she neeeeed!??
2. I’ll just wait until the album comes out to get in on it.
What more do I need!??…well, initially I set a small goal and I surpassed it by raising just over $6000 through PledgeMusic, but honestly, that is NOWHERE near the amount I need to make this album. I mean, as the solo independent artist that I am, I rely on a lot support to make these things happen — be it through fan-funding or grants. I am applying for grants, infact I just received a grant for $9000, but I was also turned down for a $10000 grant. This money is not only to make the record [paying producer, musicians, studio, mixing, mastering] but I also have to pay for [marketing, packaging, advertising, etc;] to get the word out. There are a lot of costs involved in making all of this happen.
And still, you could wait until the album comes out, but what I’m offering everyone who PLEDGES and joins me on this journey is 18 songs divided amongst 3 EPs (that are pretty badass songs…if I do say so myself) — 8 of which will NOT be on the album, and for only $15 you can get all of those songs. SHIT, that’s 83 cents a song! (You get my point) PLUS there are some really cool exclusives like you could be ON the record singing WITH me!
Anyhow, I know it’s that time of year, you’re buying gifts, so what better time to buy yourself something SBT, but NOW? And while you’re at it…get a gift for a friend — there’s lots of cool stuff, check the page.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, in advance.
