Maskerade Launches Pledgemusic.com campaign

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2010 by Maskerade

Today, November 1, 2011, is day 1 of my Pledgemusic.com campain. My upcoming album I AM MASKERADE is been in production for about a year. I’ve taken my time on production and release, because I wanted it to be not just my best effort, but the best from anybody out there. I’m not talking about just independent R&B and Pop either. I mean better than the commercial music that you hear out there.

I feel like if I write the best album on the planet, then that will give me a fighting chance to make it in this business. I think Pledge Music, is offering a great opportunity for artist to get out and fund their projects. I feel like they are on my side.

Over the last few months, I had been studying Ariel Hyatt’s book, Music Success in 9 Weeks. It taught me a lot of things. The main thing that I came with was the underlying theme of the book. I have to be a constant marketing and promotion machine for my own music. When you’re a signed artist, there are other people doing these things for you. Independents do not have the luxury of gigantic staffs. All we have is the skin on our backs and the pennies in our accounts. Oh yeah, we got blood, sweat, and tears too.

For these next two months, I have 2 things in mind. Radio spins and Project funds. I’ve already released the first single, “Unbreak Your Heart”, to radio and currently in production of that video as well. Currently I’m gathering my list of radio stations to contact and see if any are interested in breaking the record.

Funding the project is the other issue that I have to worry about. I don’t doubt that this album will get manufactured. The thing I’m hoping is that my family and friends can help me lighten the blow. That’s all I need is help. Wish me luck! 🙂
