Radio Release and Video
My name is Joe Downing and I am a Singer/Songwriter out of Nashville TN. You can visit my website at www.joedowning.com
Why a GoFundMe?
Please join me on this never-ending journey towards a dream. I am currently recording a full-length CD "Songs From The Gulf" set for release March 14, 2017. Help me to start a radio campaign and film a music video! I will write you a song or play at your house! Pre-purchase the album and help me take it to the next level!
How Will I Use The Money?
The money will be used for promotion of my album, "Songs From The Gulf". It is a concept album filled with trop-rock beach ballads and is the perfect 45-minute getaway from your day to day doldrums. I want to get a single on the charts and make a music video and I need your help to do it!

Years ago I used to go to the music store and buy my favorite artist's album. It was a special thing to go to the music store and find a new album to explore. Today an independent artist is dependent on his or her fan base to fuel their career. You are in essence the new record label. You are the engine that creates the new, original sounds that beg to be heard through the constant noise occupying the airwaves. If you want something new and original and magical then I hope you will come with me on this never-ending journey towards a dream.
God Bless and Blue Skies,
