As most of you know, I have been working at completing my 4th CD/album, "Tone Poet". I have written 11 songs that I feel are very strong, and take my style of guitar-centric music to another level both in composition and production.
The record business has changed drastically since my first CD, Venusian Sunrise, was produced in 1998. Record labels and artists have much smaller budgets, and with the advent of file sharing, some people consider music a free commodity. But, new technologies have emerged allowing artists to get great recordings, as well as new ways of raising capitol and marketing music.
Today, I have started a crowd funding project in an effort to finance the completion of TONE POET (click here to see it). In exchange for goods like MP3s, CDs, autographed items, online guitar lessons, my book, and even a guitar, supporters can fund the completion of this album. These items can be purchased for yourself or as a gift.
While I will be reaching out to my friends and fans via my 1000+ E-newsletter subscribers, my Facebook page, and my 14,000+ twitter followers, Youtube channel, and blog, I need your help.
Not only can you support this by purchasing goods, you can let all of your friends, coworkers, and your friends who are music fans, know about it. Tell them by phone, email, facebook, grocery store checkout line... any and all support is appreciated!
Your early support will help create some buzz, and momentum... which encourages my other friends and fans to contribute (some fans simply wait to see 'trust signals' before committing to support something like this).
Anyone in the world can contribute, and unlike other crowd funding services, Rockethub.com lets me keep the funds that I raise (not all or nothing).
