Help J.R. Rhodes Create New Music

$1,575 of $9,000 goal

Raised by 37 people in 4 months

DEAR FRIENDS,

At the beginning of this year, I set a goal to raise $9,000 in order to reach new heights as a musician for 2019 and beyond. Funds raised so far have allowed me to fully focus on projects which have created unexpected … exciting!... opportunities.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE ALREADY GIVEN SO GENEROUSLY... LET'S KEEP GOING!

What I need to do now is get down to the nitty-gritty (and yes very BORING... haha!) work of:

•        organizing and upgrading my home office and recording studio

•        further developing my online/social media presence, so necessary for today's working artist!

•        creating fresh, new promo materials (head shots, graphics, etc)

•        cataloging/archiving all of my music

•        and so much more...

THANK YOU, to everyone who has given to this campaign so far. Because of your generosity, I've been able to perform more benefit shows, work with the fine folks at Jack Straw Productions in bringing music to school children, attend my very first ASCAP Expo (more on this exciting adventure soon!), begin planning my first tour in... forever... and so much more. I can build on this momentum with your help.

When you contribute to this campaign, you will receive the following:

•        $5+       1 download of a never been released song!

•        $25+     1 Full Album download of your choice and one button, plus the download of the unreleased song

•        $50+    2 Full Album downloads of your choice, two buttons, 2 tickets to a show (TBD), plus the download of unreleased song

•        $100+  3 Full Album downloads of your choice, two buttons and 2 tickets to a show (TBD)

•        $250+  Package of 3 SIGNED CDs, two buttons and 2 tickets to a show (TBD), plus the download of the unreleased song

•        $1,000+  *PRIVATE HOUSE CONCERT, Full digital catalog (4 FULL ALBUMS!), 3 SIGNED CDs, 2 tickets to a show (TBD)

Things are moving much faster than I expected and great opportunities are opening up for me right here and now. Being able to take advantage of them is my immediate goal. I know I can never thank you enough for your encouragement and support. I can thank you the best way I know how... by creating and sharing the music!

Please keep in touch and share this campaign on your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Email... THANK YOU!

 Thank you for lending your hearts and ears to the music.

Truly,

JR

*Only 5 House Concert packages available. All arrangements TBD, with a mutually agreed upon date. Please contact me at info@jrrecordingco.com for more information.

Thank you for helping me get to ASCAP Expo 2019 in Los Angeles. It was a successful trip…
Greater than I ever imagined! I met new music friends to collaborate with and look forward to sharing more as new projects unfold! Some of the magic that happened was I got picked to have my song ‘Spilt Milk’ reviewed live onstage at a Song Feedback Session led by writer-producer Darrell Brown. Was so fun and insightful to get feedback from Darrell and songwriters in the audience.

Your support so far this year has helped make it possible for me to:
1) Attend ASCAP Expo 2019 ‘I Create Music’ music conference in LA.
2) Partner with Jack Straw Cultural Center in working with kids, writing and recording songs inspired by their poems. A beautiful music program created by Jack Straw Cultural Center.
Learn more here:

3) Create new music and begin the planning and wood shedding stages of writing and recording a new record with a 2020 planned release.

Because of your generosity and kindness, there’s lots in the works and more wonderful successes on the way soon. To stay updated and a part of the action, please be sure to sign up for my newsletter here: http://www.jrrecordingco.com/

I'm forever grateful to you for helping me move these projects forward. Your support has been beyond generous. I would like to ask you one more favor of you, if I may. Please share this fundraising link far and wide and help me grow our musical community.

As always, thank you for lending your ears to the music!

Help Send J.R. to the 2019 ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO in Los Angeles!

First and Foremost – A BIG THANK YOU! to those of you who have been early supporters of my Go-Fund-Me campaign to raise funds to carry on making music focused on love and compassion. Your generosity so far has been PRICELESS and Means Heaps!

But now I’m making an URGENT REQUEST FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE HELP in getting the funds together so I can attend the 2019 ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO in Los Angeles, which is fast approaching. This is a wonderful opportunity to attend this important conference for the working musician … but I can’t do it without you.

I’m seeking a fast 100 folks to donate just $10 by April 27th to pay for the purchase of airline tickets (SEA to LAX), conference fees and traveling incidentals.

I'm officially dubbing this the “10x100 SPILT MLK FUNDRAISER for J.R. Rhodes”
The first 100 folks to give $10 (or more!), will get a very special THANK YOU gift directly from me in the form of a download of the EXCLUSIVE, EARLY RELEASE DEMO of my new song, “SPILT MILK”!

With just two weeks left before the ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO, time is not on my side... but your love of music and your generosity is! Your immediate support, right now, ensures I get this wonderful chance to make contact and network with music and film industry professionals who are showing interest in my work. Thanks to you, I have come this far... now, let's keep going!

Truly, Thankfully…

J.R.
