- Production Vlog #35: Viva La Vinyl! (Help) Release The New Record
http://rkthb.co/4469 - We interrupt our regularly-scheduled "vloggage" to bring you this very important message!
David here. I'm posting this long, letter-like entry to update you about the new record. I’ve been working hard all year, and I'm really excited to share it.
Unfortunately, I’ve spent and borrowed all of the money I can to get it to this point, and now I don’t have enough left to finish the album and give it a proper release.
This is where YOU come in. I need your help to release this record!
Here’s how you can contribute: Visit the project page @ http://rkthb.co/4469, check out the “Rewards” section on the right, and click on the “Fueler” option that works best for you.
You’ll notice the more you give, the more cool stuff you get, but it’s worth noting that contributing at any level will get you access to “Fueler Only” content such as previously unseen behind-the-scenes videos, early mixes and more! Something new will be posted each week.
My new album, entitled LIGHT THE DARK, includes the best, most raw and personal songs I’ve ever written, and for reasons I can’t even fully understand (let alone articulate), it’s awfully important to me to share them.
I pour too much of myself into my music for it to exist only as ones and zeros (ie: “digitally”), and even though my “day job” keeps a roof over my head and my creditors at bay, there’s not enough money left over after all of that to release this music the way you deserve to experience it.
You deserve much more than an MP3. You deserve a record that you can hold in your hands, place on the turntable and flip over when you want more. You deserve an album you can interact with--one you can touch, smell and display. With a lyric sheet, liner notes and artwork bigger than your whole head!
**Don’t fret if you don’t have a record player. Each album will have a CD version tucked into the sleeve.**
If you stop and think about it, we carry on life-long relationships with the albums we love. They mean different things to us at different times, and they mark periods of our lives in ways that nothing else can.
By contributing to my Rockethub campaign, you’ll be helping me make my mark by enabling me to get my record mixed, mastered, manufactured (and possibly) promoted--all of which I could not do without you.
Thank you kindly for watching and reading. Please comment and/or ask ANY questions you may have in the “Recent Conversations” section over @ http://rkthb.co/4469. You can also e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
