I wanted to let you know about a new website I found called Kick Starter and about a project I just launched there.
Kick Starter is a site designed to bring creative projects and people interested in them together to build funding for the projects and to create value for everyone involved.
As you know, creating music has been a huge part of my life and is something I’ve continued to do simply because I love to do it.
I’ve found, as I think many people who pursue creative projects have, that the biggest challenge to getting those projects completed is often times just gathering the necessary funding.
I believe the Kick Starter model could be the beginning of a completely new and exciting paradigm in helping to create this funding and to also bring the people interested in those projects closer to the creative process.
I’ve just started a 30 day campaign on Kick Starter to help raise funding to complete my 8th CD. I am about 75% finished already and, if this campaign is successful, the project will be completed within a month.
If you are curious about this, I would love for you to check out the short video that I made with Asha and Given’s help and whacky ideas. The video and the Kick Starter page explain all the details about the project, how it works and the added value items offered to those who join in.
Some of the gifts offered are:
Your name on the front or back cover
Your picture on the front or back cover
Your voice mixed in a song on the CD
A song written for you
A special concert at your house
And a whole lot more
If you are interested in being a part of the project (simply by donating a minimum of $1), I am honored and grateful. Also if you are inspired to pass this info along to anyone you think might be interested (simply by forwarding this email), I am thanking you ahead of time.
You can see the video and this project’s Kick Starter page by going to:
This project will run through the month of October only and we must reach the goal amount of $3500 by then or none of the funding goes through.
Thanks so much for checking this out!
Love to you all,
