A Short Summary:

David Hustler & The Trustworthy are not only a band with passion and drive but more importantly, a tight knit group of friends who collectively create an emotional energy on stage and on record.

Knowing the importance of getting their music out to their listeners and future fans, the band has already laid down $5000 of their own money to fully complete the recording of their 10 best songs to date and have poured every ounce of their creative and musical energy into each song.

After 9 days at Boxcar Studio in Hamilton, David Hustler & The Trustworthy strongly believe that people will connect with the music; you are going to hear the band like you would see them live. 

This is where you come in.  The recording is complete, now comes the post-production process of getting the music into the hands of present and future fans.  With your help, David Hustler & The Trustworthy will be able to complete the mixing, mastering, and pressing of 3 EPs over the summer months while promoting and touring to their greatest potential.   

Breakdown of Costs:

Mixing:  A professional mixer has been lined up in Toronto.  It will cost $3000 to mix all 3 EPs.

Mastering:  Mastering will cost $2000 for all 10 songs.

Pressing:  To get the first run of CDs pressed and packaged will cost $2000.

Publicity & Touring:  By this point, the albums will have been professionally recorded, completed, and fully packaged.  It only makes sense to properly publicize, promote, and tour them.  The cost for the remainder of the next year to properly do this, just to break even is $5000 - $8000.


Final Word - David Hustler & The Trustworthy:

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of our family, friends, and fans.  These people have made our dream of playing music a reality.  We are forever indebted to these people and this is why we continue to make the music we do and why it is so important to us to give back.

It is hard to put into words just exactly what your contributions would mean to us.  This is our dream, this is our music, this is our life.  This project is the culmination of all of our musical efforts in this lifelong journey.  We would love to share it with all of you.  In the sidebar to the right you will see the unique rewards we have come up with for your contributions.  Check them out!

Thank you so much for visiting our IndieGoGo campaign and if you like what you see here, please feel free to share it with your friends and family.

Thanks again.
