Help Get ED into the Studio!
ED has been playing guitar for... well let's just say many years. A few years back ED made some videos for fun and put them on YouTube. The response was astounding. ED has 90,000 friends on Myspace and 11,000 on Facebook. In 2008 ED entered the Dean Guitars Shredder Search contest. In Dec '08 ED took 1st place out of 1200 players worldwide. ED now has artist endorsements with Dean Guitars, DiMarzio pickups and XOX Audio Tools. I know what you're thinking... "He's got all that going and he doesn't even have a CD out yet?" Strangely enough... yes.
All we need now is your help to get ED into the studio! Who knew being a minor guitar hero didn't pay well?!? Unfortunately, it is the reality. And that is why we need your help to get ED's songs recorded & pressed to CD.
What We Need & What You Get
ED needs $7000.
$5000 for recording @ Black Diamond Studios
(One of Portland's premiere recording studios)
$1000 for Mastering
$1000 for CD Duplication
The $5000 for recording time will go to Black Diamond Studios to record 10 songs. This will buy ED a little over 2 weeks worth of recording/mixing time. After the songs are recorded and mixed. We will send them off for final mastering. Mastering is the final step of EQ'ing and adjusting sound levels to be uniform across the entire CD. The last step is sending the final CD out to the duplication house to have the actual CD's created and packaged.
The 10 songs ED has written aren't just a couple good ones thrown in with some garbage to fill time. There are memorable melodies and catchy phrases in every song that will have you humming these songs well after you stopped listening.
The question was raised: What happens if you don't raise the full $7000? If we fall short of our goal everything under $5000 will go directly to the studio. Depending on the situation ED may do a 2 or 4 song EP if that is all the money we can raise.
So, help us reach the goal. We have a lot of great perks as well as a truck load of gratitude standing by for all of our friends & donors! ED needs your help to see this to its conclusion.
And don't forget.
Because of our sponsorship status with

Other Ways You Can Help
