Hello Friends, Allison here, with some BIG NEWS!
I know you’ve been eagerly waiting for some new music from me; this summer, I’ll be recording four surprise cover songs at The Sugar Shack studio in
I’m contributing $1000.00 of my own money towards the project, but I’ll need
your help to bring these recordings to life!
I’m asking for ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS from you, my friends and fans to help contribute towards this project.
I’m not printing CDs for this project; the recordings will be available on digital
streaming platforms, will be played on radio stations, and will be downloadable
from my website and Bandcamp.
Your contribution will go towards:
- Studio Time
- The best session musicians around (some of whom are also your friends)!
- Licensing fees to publishers
- Fees to upload the songs to Spotify and other streaming platforms.
As these four songs are covers, this project doesn’t apply to granting programs,
and any royalties from radio and streaming will go back to the songwriters, so I’m not going to be making much revenue from the digital downloads.
My previous recording projects since 2003 (Pizza & Beer, Everything That Shined, Viper At The Virgin’s Feet, Stitches and Incisions, Currents Collide) were entirely
self-funded and the expenses were recouped from CD sales, which is no longer a viable option due to the demise of CD players! Anyone who would like to see the full project budget to see where your contribution will help, I can send that your way.
For donations of:
- $5.00 to $10.00, you get two of the songs sent to you digitally
- $20.00 or more, you get all 4 songs digitally or on a home-burnt CD if you prefer
- $50.00 or more, you’ll get all the songs I’ve ever recorded plus the 4 new ones (Digitally or home-burnt CD)
- $100.00 or more, you’ll get a set of 5 handmade holiday cards
- $200 or more, you’ll get a set of 10 handmade holiday cards
- $500 or more; 5 days of house or pet-sitting, 2 sessions of housekeeping services OR a house concert for your friends!
I will message you through the Go Fund Me page to get your email address to send you your gift! If donations exceed my $1000.00 goal I’ll be recording a special fifth bonus live song!
Thank you all so much for contributing to this project, I’m excited to have some new old songs to share and create some fantastic sounding recordings with my amazing musician friends this summer!
Lotsa love to you all!
