Who is ESTA?
Born, raised and living in California, Francis Esteban who goes by ESTA is a beat maker weaving west coast nostalgia with the kind of tempo you want to cruise to against a backdrop of blue skies. He started his musical journey in 2006.
ESTA has gained a lot of exposure for his hard work and dedication to his craft. He has garnered over 25,000 soundcloud followers and has received over 3 million plays.
His music has touched so many people that he's been given the opportunity to go on tour and work with well known recording artist, but it's quite difficult for him to perform when his computer constantly freezes or when his imac crashes after spending hours on a song. The same way Mozart needed a piano and Jimi Hendrix needed a guitar, ESTA needs a laptop!
He's been using the same laptop/imac since he began making music. However, as he continued to grow his sound, unfortunately his computers didn't grow as fast as he is. We're asking for fans, close friends, family members, people who love music, and anyone that wants to contribute to a young artists future, for your help.
Please help ESTA get a new laptop so he can continue to make remarkable music for everyone to enjoy.
Get ready for his new EP "Paradise"
Perks Delivery Time?
Most of the perks will be sent out a few days following the the campaign's end date. The Skype sessions, Producing Lessons and exclusive ESTA beat will all take time and will be held at specific dates that work with both you and ESTA's schedule. Most likely they will be held sometime between December 2013 and January 2014.
For those that get the exclusive beat will be contacted directly following the campaign, so we can discuss the production in more detail.
Well IndieGoGo doesn't allow us to setup this campaign for free, that's why we had to make the price higher so he can get the exact amount to get the laptop he needs. ESTA needs a laptop to last him the next 4-6 years, so he can keep making music. Understanding that he makes his music on a Mac, he needs the best, that's why we're going for this Mac in particular.
Who started the campaign?
My name is Monty and I'm a creator aka I do a lot of creative things. I recently had a trip to LA and I had the pleasure of meeting ESTA for the first time. Now, I've been following his music for years and one thing we talked about was his lack of efficient equipment, and at the time he never thought of crowd-sourcing as an option, until now. I've never put together a crowd-sourcing campaign, but I volunteered to help him put this all together to at least try to get him new a laptop. We'd really appreciate any help or contribution you could make towards ESTA's passion, even if it's simply sharing this campaign.
Thank you in advanced and much love!
