Who I Am
Hi! I'm Jamie Price, the sole member of Must Be Tuesday. I've been playing music since I was a kid. It's what I've always wanted to do, and I've been diligently songwriting for years, even while employed and/or completely clueless about how to make an album happen. People have been asking me since the previous CD came out (My Boyfriend's Girlfriend, 2007) when I'm going to make another, and I've been saying "Definitely by the end of this year!" for about four years. This time it's happening for real!
I've got all my vocals recorded and half my instrumentation, and a couple of the songs have been mixed. I'm well on my way to getting this thing done! I'm so excited!
Where the Money Goes
The funds raised during this Indiegogo campaign will go toward mixing, mastering, CD duplication and packaging, possibly hiring other musicians, adding the songs to online retail sites, and shipping CDs to radio stations. I don't have a record label, so it's all independent self promotion! Yay! :D
My budget is variable - it all depends how much I raise through Indiegogo. Here is the plan:
$900-2000 (Not counting the $600 I've already spent) - Recording and mixing, possibly hiring other musicians
$350-1000 - Mastering
$1500-3000 - CD duplication and packaging
$600-1000 - Online and retail distribution, and free copies for radio stations
What You Get
Perks you can get by contributing through Indiegogo include:
$3 - A thank you tweet or Facebook message
$7 - Four of the album tracks (your choice) in MP3 format
$10 - Three bonus tracks (indiegogo exclusive) in MP3 format. These won't be available anywhere else!
$15 - All twelve album tracks in MP3 format
$25 - All twelve album tracks in MP3 format plus a PDF copy of all the lyrics and album artwork
$50 - Everything from the $25 level, plus an original lyric sheet with someone else’s feedback written on it, autographed by Jamie. These come from the Songwriters' Circle I've been going to for several years (hosted by local singer-songwriter Rob Heath) where everyone critiques each other's songs. You might get a copy with praise, or one with criticisms. The lyrics might be quite different from what ends up on the CD!
$75 - Everything from the $10 and $25 levels, plus a physical copy of the CD, autographed by Jamie and mailed to you.
$100 - Everything from the $75 level, plus your name mentioned in a thank you video!
$200 - Everything from the $100 level, plus a custom song recorded for you based on your own lyrics or poetry!
$250 - Everything from the $200 level, plus a pack of separated out instrument and vocal recordings of the album track of your choice, so you can make your own remix!
$350 - Everything from the $250 level, plus your name included in the thank yous in the CD liner notes!
$1000 - A mini-concert in your living room! Edmonton, Red Deer, or Calgary only. I'll go to your house (or your concert venue, if you happen to have one) and play an intimate show on guitar and keyboard for you and your friends. I hope someone gets this because it sounds like tons of fun! :D
Other Ways to Help
Tell your friends! Share the link on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr... Word of mouth is one of the most helpful promotional tools there is, and I would be so grateful if you spread the word and help make this project happen! Thank you so much for all your support!
