When Music IS
your Day Job, it's tough to raise enough money to pay to produce always-fresh and new music. Many fans are not aware of the up-front production costs that include payments for songwriters, studio musicians, recording and studio time, mixing and mastering, producers, CD creation, distribution, marketing, and everything that goes with getting world-class music to a worldwide public. Even with a tight budget, a typical album can run an independent artist easily $3,000 - $5,000 USD up front, without any promise of future sales. Furthermore, a small TOUR can also run into the thousands for the band, considering costs of airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and food expenses in advance of any ticket sales. With costs like these, it is no wonder that many abandon the music business in search of greener financial pastures!
However, as fans of TIMKAT and its partners, YOU can help, either by choosing to donate your pocket change or by contributing tons of money so that we can continue to deliver world-class grooves. Standard donations start at just $5, but you may choose any amount that is comfortable. Certain levels, starting at $5 and above and/or amounts in-between, include a cool set of unique prizes
with our thanks. The choice is yours -- we appreciate your assistance either way!
