It’s been a long time since I’ve wrote a proper blog post, right!?
Well, this one is pretty important. I’m ready to birth a new music release baby to the world, but this time I need your help!!!
That’s right. I’m trying crowdfunding!!! For the first. time. ever.
I’ve been wanting to attempt a crowdfund for a good long while. Why now? Because:
- I have a full concept EP, featuring all my original songs and arrangements, ready to go into the studio with an array of special guest vocalists, instrumentalists, and more. It’s the most ambitious and grandiose vision for a project I’ve had yet.
- I believe the whole “DIY” thing is a big fat myth. Especially in the music business right now. I don’t care what level you’re at. The turht of the matter is, it’s actually “DIWO” – Do It With Others. Everyone needs supporters, a street-team, people who believe in their mission…heck, just an intern to manage the day-to-day sh*tshow that is trying to run an independent music career all on your own, and still have time to create, on top of it !
- I want to connect with my fans on a whole new level, in a new way. That’s why I’m offering some really cool behind-the-scenes rewards to give fans a real window into my creative process. As well as things like house concerts, music lesson packages, ask-me-anythings, and a few other additional rewards I’m going to add very, very soon.
- Music is $$$ (read: expensive) to create, if you have any standard of quality you’re aiming for. Especially when no one feels entitled to pay for it once it’s out anymore (hello streaming payouts) I’m asking for fans financial support in advance, for them to feel not only invested, but excited, in and for the project’s success. I also have this wild theory that ALL of my band-members, and amazing special guests that I’m inviting onto the EP, deserve to get paid for their talents, too!! Imagine that!
- I am willing and am most certainly going to be financing the promotion, marketing, touring, etc, etc myself once I have a product to share with the world. All I am asking for is a little bit o’ help to create that product in the first place.
OK, I think by now that you can tell I really care about this thing, and would rather not beg anyone if i have to.
Please, Please, Please check the link out below. Watch the promo video, read more of the story, check out all the rewards available, and tell your friends. I’m gonna need all the help I can get with this one.
I believe this music is fresh, forward-thinking, funky…. and what people are gonna need to hear in 2020 and beyond.
Support the process of its unfoldment and contribute to The LYVELIFE EP today!!!!
Thanks a million ya’ll, it really does mean the world.
