After the release of our first mixtape (which was extremely successful by the way), we are super excited to announce the Mixtape 2! We will use the funds generated by this campaign to create a physical compilation consisting of 5 specially selected bands/artist who use our service (http://iwthyb.com). We hope to use this mixtape to create a new promotional tool for the bands who use our services.
This compilation is a step up from our previous mixtape, as it will contain brand new singles (along with a live performance dvd) by the bands/artists.
We also hope to release a free digital download version of the album to allow more people to access the album. The 400 physical copies that this campaign allows us to create will be sent to the bands, music industry executives, record labels, and a bunch of other people! You can find out more about the Mixtape project by visiting our first IndieGoGo campaign page, http://www.indiegogo.com/iwthyb.
Canadian bands will have the pleasure of working with Juno Nominated Ben Leggett, most known for his work on Craig Cardiff’s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Cardiff) album ‘Floods and Fires’ which received a Juno Nomination for Roots & Traditional Album Of The Year. UK bands will have the pleasure of working with Red Scarf Studios Greg Ryan! Any bands from other countries will have a studio close by appointed to them. All mixing will be done by Ben Leggett!
Who is IWTHYB?
IWantToHelpYourBand.com is deeply committed to the creation of a service that generates new and exciting opportunities for bands and solo artists. Our team strives to be the next step in the careers of struggling musicians.
We are the only online service that creates meaningful opportunities for bands and artists around the world for free, without any genre discrimination; we help bands and artists achieve. By helping us with this project, you can help IWTHYB and the selected bands move one step closer to success!
This Mixtape will give each of the bands/artists selected the chance to record a brand new song along with an exclusive live performance of the song for the compilation DVD. This will allow their music to be released in a palatable format. Along with being promoted across the world, the compilation will give fans the chance to discover new music from artists they might not have come across before.
The mixtape one was downloaded and distributed by/to over 15,000 people! We expect that number to more then double with the mixtape two considering the amazing team we have, the amazing producers working on the tape, the insane support we have received in the past and our massive jump in popularity since the release of the mixtape one!

- $385 IndieGoGo's Cut

- $2500 Song Production

**If we raise more than $5500, that will allow us to add more bands! So, if you are feeling generous and we have already met our goal, feel free to give a bit more, you will be helping another band excel in their careers!
