Ade Adu's Debut Album Recording

For the past decade music has been my sole source of income and I’ve been that quintessential starving artist. It’s a sacrifice I’ve had to make to practice and develop my raw music talent into what it is today. After performing locally for 12 – 15 hours sometimes even 20 hours a week for so long I’ve come to the realization that in a lot of ways I’m just spinning my wheels. To take my career to the next level I would need a professional CD of my original music recorded. I disliked the idea of asking for help but after trying unsuccessfully for 5 years I’ve decided it’s something I need to do to give others the opportunity to participate in my journey. Every time I listen to music on the radio I couldn’t help but think ‘I can do what they do just as good as they do it’. I can play instruments, I can sing and I can write songs and understand music also on a theoretical level. These are all the ingredients for success in the music business if you’re above average in at least one of these.

I’m encouraging people to donate to help fulfill my dream of having an album with my name on it; a dream I’ve had since I was 12. Below are the rewards for each level of donation:
$15 or more – Digital download

$25 or more – CD + Digital Download

$50 or more – Custom Signed CD + Digital Download

$100 or more – Signed CD + Album Download

$250 or more – Signed CD + Album Download + Shoutout

$500 or more – Signed CD + Album Download + Associate Producer

$1000 or more – Signed CD + Album Download + Executive Producer and more

My original music will be mainstream so it reaches a vast audience blending pop, country, r&b, soft rock, hip hop styles etc. I plan to record in some of the best studios from Buffalo to New York City because in this business if your music isn’t good quality you might not stand a chance. It is also an opportunity to network with some of the best producers who have worked with Grammy nominated/winning artists. Music will then be promoted via social media and other online marketing avenues in the hopes that it will be purchased by people around the world or used in Film, TV and movies. The project is set to be released by July 2019 at the latest if not sooner. I’m very confident this will be successful and I thank you all in advance for your support.

God bless,
Ade Adu
