Having lost my job due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to pursue songwriting and a career in music full-time. This newfound free-time allowed me to finally release one of my singles, SOBER (pre-order the song here), which will arrive on December 11th, 2020:
Unfortunately, being an independent artist (especially during today's age) comes with a variety of obstacles. It requires a massive investment in time, money, and resources - which is very difficult to commit to without the ability to gig and perform. Concerts are a main source of income for the vast majority of artists (specifically, those of whom that are unsigned). Thus, investing in options such as social media marketing and music PR is a necessary, albeit expensive, "evil."
While this is obviously a major ask for anyone, especially in today's shaky economy, I would be immensely grateful for donations of any size. Any and all contributions will go directly to my music - having spent nearly $7,000 of my savings this year alone on my self-investment, I can promise at least this much! This is just the beginning for me.
Whether you decide to donate to my campaign or another, please consider supporting local and/or independent artists. Art deserves to be compensated, and far too many musicians give up on their dreams prematurely due to financial restrictions. We work incredibly hard, and would be eternally indebted to you for helping us pursue our ambitions.
Thank you so, so much for your time and consideration.
