January Conversations

I need your help making sure my new album gets noticed in a market dominated by big record labels. You'll get 20 songs, perks and better quality audio.

I've got a new album (listen to the special edition here), featuring the song I See You, that you can get now. You'll receive six extra songs (for a total of 20 on the download), bonus features and better quality audio. Why should you get the album now

I'm thrilled with this album and want to make sure it gets heard. I've learned the hard way that if you don't promote an album well, very few people even learn that it is available. But it takes money to promote an album well. It costs thousands of dollars to hire a publicist or send songs to just one radio format, for instance. There's a great team excited about helping me make sure this album gets noticed but I've had to turn many of them down because I can't afford them. 

That's where you come in. You could wait for the album to come out in stores but you'll get fewer songs, none of the extras and you won't get the higher quality audio files that are included in the downloads here. When you buy through a store I get less too and I don't even receive that smaller amount from albums sold until months later.

I’ve got some great rewards for individuals, churches and charities -- something for everyone. Check them out over there. -->

You can also invite me to your town - for a Conversation or a concert. You’ll find the details–yep, you guessed it–right over there. -->

Click a "Claim This Perk" button to see more information about ordering it, delivery dates, etc. If you pay by credit card, Indiegogo doesn't complete the transaction until several days after the campaign ends, so your delivery date is after that. If you use PayPal, the delivery date will be earlier than the one posted. 

Thanks again for your interest in my music.  Please share this page with your friends... choose the cool stuff you want... and check out the special edition and the five bonus Christmas songs.

FAQ

Why have you set your goal so low?

Indiegogo charges higher fees if I don't reach my goal. So, I set a low goal in hopes of exceeding it and paying lower fees.

Can I participate even if I don't live in the United States?

Absolutely! I’ve had such great experiences with my international audience and I want you involved. Plus, the guy who helped me put this campaign together is a Canadian and he’s helped me figure out how to make it easier for you be a part.

You can choose any of the perks that are delivered by e-mail (Reports From The Soul Furnace, Digital Album Download, Let's Talk, etc.) without any extra cost. 

There are some extra shipping costs, compared to mailing the same items to an address in the United States, if you choose a perk that is rewarded by mailing you something -- CDs, shirts, etc. So, you can simply add a bit to your pledge to cover those costs. I’ll trust you to be fair when estimating that amount.

If you choose a reward package that involves travel you’ll be responsible for the travel costs.

How can I buy the Conversations album and/or the Conversations video?

I'm offering the album and video through this Indiegogo campaign right now. A shorter version of the album, with fewer songs and none of the bonus features, will be available through other channels. Indiegogo allows you to use a credit card or your PayPal account.

Can I give the album or other perks to my friends?

You betcha! Indiegogo allows you specify who you want the perk sent to and indicate that it is a gift. You can even include a note for the recipient of your gift.

What do you need for concert rewards?

It's pretty basic: You provide a sound system suitable for the size of audience and venue, along with a keyboard, an acoustic/electric guitar and two direct in boxes/connections.

My accommodation needs are simple too: One hotel room (two for Christmas concerts), meals and transportation to/from the airport.

Can you tell me more about the estimated delivery dates?

If I can send your rewards earlier than estimated cost-effectively, I will. I'll work hard to get your perks to you as quickly as possible after I receive payment from Indiegogo. PayPal payments happen fairly quickly but credit card payments aren't processed until several business days after the campaign closes. Some perks, especially those that involve travel, may need a bit more time to schedule but we’ll work that out together.

What happens if you don't reach your goal?

You'll still get whatever perk you've selected. I'll have to pay higher fees to Indiegogo if I don't reach the goal but you'll still get everything.

How can I help with this campaign?

There's lots you can do in addition to backing this campaign and sharing this page. Any comments you post help raise the profile of this page. Christopher Redner created a Facebook group, which you can join, to help you learn how to increase your social media impact. He'll be sharing examples of how to be more effective on the social media campaign for Conversations. You can also send Christopher a message here if you'd like to be added to my Indiegogo campaign team (see the group below).

What if I have a question that isn't answered here or want a perk that isn't offered?
