Help Tommy Release a Record

Hello there,

Thanks for checking out my fundraiser page. I have just completed my seventh solo record – NAMASTE – and you can help me put it out. Let me say first that a lot of people have already been kind to me this year because I was in a horrendous car accident June 12th and missed a lot of work, and people (perhaps you) have been very generous to me already. I gave that money to my wife Beth, because that's what smart husbands do, and she's all about making it last until I'm well enough to work full-time again. Using the money to release a record was not really ever in consideration. So if you've already given, I thank you wholeheartedly for even considering giving again.

Four things are already paid for – the recording, mastering, photography and cover design. That's all done. Now, the question is... do I just raise enough money to press copies and hand them out to my friends and sell them at gigs, or do I go all out and have a proper indie release, with a press agent and radio promoter. I want to go all out, because, If you don't do those promotional things, nobody outside of your closest fan base will ever know you put a record out. Pressing the record will run me about $4000, radio can run to $4500 and a three month press campaign will be approximately $7000. So that’s $15500.

Here are my incentive packages and you can choose what’s right for you.(If you have any questions, you can reach me a tommywomack@bellsouth.net.)

Level One: $25 to $50 – An autographed (if you wish) copy of NAMASTE the day it is released, plus a free digital download of the record.

Level Two: $51 to $100 – An autographed copy of NAMASTE, digital download and a Tommy Womack NAMASTE T-shirt.

Level Three: $101 to $250 – The record, the shirt and a copy of one of my books, either Cheese Chronicles or The Lavender Boys & Elsie.

Level Four: $251 to $500 – The record, the shirt, the book, and the handwritten lyrics of the Tommy Womack song of your choice, on acid-free paper and suitable for framing.

Level Five: $501 to $1000 – The record, the shirt, and YOUR OWN SONG, written to order and recorded by me! You tell me what you want the song to be about – your spouse, your dog, your first kiss, whatever - and I write it, perform it, and record it, just for you.

Level Six: $1001 to $1500 – The record, the shirt, your choice of the aforementioned items, and your name in the record liner notes credited as Executive Producer.

Level Seven: $1501 and UP – Your choice of all the previous items, PLUS a concert, by me, in your town! You pick the venue, and I show up and play for you for no additional charge. All you have to do is book the venue and provide a PA system. (This offer applies to the lower 48 United States.)

I appreciate your help more than I can ever say. NAMASTE means, “the spirit in me salutes the spirit in you.” Thank you and God bless.

Tommy
