Thanks to my adoring fans, just over $3,000 was raised to fund my debut music album. Just now, it’s really beginning to sink in how helpful your help truly is.
There is theory and there is practice. My theory was, “If nobody wants to donate a $1, bite me, I’m going this alone. I’ll self-invest and self-release my first album— even if it’s means $20 bucks at a time. I’ll take it to the street! I’ll burn homemade CD’s and distribute hand to hand.”
Then there is practice. “Jess, grow up.” I started researching distribution costs and hot damn! It’s expensive to make and share music the legit and professional way! Good thing I asked you for your dollar bills ya’ll. Hehe!
I recently finished fleshing out my desired album release date (wooot!), an execution plan, and fell down the internet rabbit hole, researching which distribution platform is best for me. So far, I’m thinking CD Baby Pro. (Musician friends, feel free to weigh in.)
I promise to make you, my fans/backers proud, and give the next leg of project my 300%.
Special thanks to crowdfund backers: Dawn Snow, Brett Helsham, Elizabeth Vogler, Daniel Tressler, Jon Tynon, Keli Solomon, Michael Solomon, Kirby Spencer, Caroline Reynolds, Marcia Chludzinski, Don Pezzolo, and anonymous donors. I simply couldn’t have made it here without you.
