A man just shared this video with me after contributing to my New Album FUNdraising Campaign.
It really hit home because, like Amanda Palmer, I am asking for your help. "You" being not just a generic YOU, but a YOU who has enjoyed my music in the past... or who has just discovered that they enjoy it.
Being that I am a devotional chant artist, I suspect that this "YOU" will be a select number of people. However, being that this is the internet, a select group of people can still be thousands, millions, or even billions of people. Why not?
Anyway, the way this works is that making a CD is expensive, so I ask YOU (again, the select YOU) to buy the CD before it's done so I can pay to make it.
It's a short-term investment, if you will.
I'll give you your CD this summer once it's completed.
Besides pre-purchasing the CD, there are other ways to make bigger contributions and get fun prizes in return.
I really like doing my FUNdraising this way because it gets everyone involved in this music project.

Thanks for considering this,
