The record I've been hard at work making is finally coming to life!! There are a few ways you can help me bring it into the world. I am a very hard worker but without a publicist and radio promoter less than 1000 people will ever hear this music. For those who like numbers, here's a breakdown of costs, not including recording, mixing and mastering. My radio promoter is $3000, shipping to radio is estimated at $1000, CD duplication $3000, publicist is estimated at $5000 for a 3-month campaign, as well as professional video making/editing, duplicating USB drives and (if it's in the budget) a limited edition vinyl pressing. I need to lean heavily on radio and press for this record, since I'm yet not out there touring.
Below are a few ways you can jump on board now to support this record!
If they are out of your budget, please don't worry - I will totally need your help to spread the word when it comes out! Word of mouth really matters and it doesn't cost anything to "like" and share and comment or talk about it to your friends! And of course I'd love it if you ordered a copy, too!
THANK YOU MY FRIENDS!
These folks will get their name in the liner notes, as well as a digital download of the CD! Be sure to sign up by 12/14. Includes existing patrons and higher tier patrons too.
I'm looking for one person/couple to sponsor each song. Check out the list below to pick your favorite before someone else gets it. Song Sponsors (before 12/14) will have their name listed on the inside of the liner notes next to their song, receive handwritten lyrics suitable for framing and a signed copy of the CD. $1000/song.

Not to mention my never-ending gratitude! $5000
WAHOO we have an executive producer!
I'm hard at work setting up pre-orders so you'll soon be able to do that here. I can't believe how many buttons I need to push to make it happen!! But there will be digital downloads and physical CDs too. Any interest in vinyl? Let me know!
