Travel Money for First Canada Gig

Donation protected

I'm Mercurius FM, a music artist and DJ born in Brooklyn, NY and living in Phoenix, AZ. I've been making music since 2005 and since then I've won multiple awards for my unique brand of dance music and garnered some really cool press. 

The time has come for me to really start spreading my wings in a live setting so I've been given the opportunity to perform in Toronto, Canada for Canadian Music Week (CMW). I am very excited to play not only perform my very first festival showcase, but also my very first Canadian gig! 

The downside to this is that it is an unpaid showcase... All the travel expenses are on me, and the reality is that I am a self employed musician and artist. Taking this trip will really mess up my year because of late payments on credit cards, late rent, and more. So, a friend gave me the idea to do a "GoFundMe" account to raise money for the plane ticket (because I don't mind not eating for a day and sleeping at the airport). 

I'm swallowing my pride and asking for your support and understanding.

Your investment in my art.

In return, I will go to Canada and spread the word of dance music. I will make sure they know electronic music is more than just cheesy radio music and pop vocals. I will also thank you all by recording a special DJ mix just for people who supported this trip. Furthermore, I am offering special perks for people who help including stickers.

I'm not good at this sort of stuff. I'm better in a dark studio making awesome music, so I encourage you to listen to my music and see what I'm talking about. 

Check out the rewards I'm offering below. I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do!

Thank you for reading!
