My name is Doug Tiemann and I'm part of a Folk/Americana band called Blood & Dust. I've been writing songs for the past 4 years. This is a chance for me to finally record some of the songs that have been growing inside of me.
Music is something that every person can rally around. Have you ever connected a song with a time or an event in your life? My life is filled with songs connected to memories/hopes/dreams/hurts/regrets/joys and in the past few years that has grown into local music. Local Music is a big part of my life! My friends are musicians, my goals are music oriented, and my hope is that local music continues to be a huge part of my neck of the woods! If you like and appreciate local music, HELP BLOOD & DUST MAKE THIS RECORD! IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME!
What We Need & What You Get
My goal for this campaign is $5000. With this money I'll be heading to Faultline Studios in San Francisco to record six original songs! I've been performing these songs live over the past year and they are near and dear to my heart. Recording/Mixing/Mastering can be an expensive process so I need your help to make it happen.
Not only will the money raised go to recording these songs but it will help me in getting hardcopies and digital copies of the music for distribution online and to you the backers! EXCITING RIGHT?
There's more- this money will also help me get you guys some awesome extras to take home including prints of the album art, some b-side recordings, a song written just for you, OR a performance live in your home or online.
Studio Time: Recording/Mixing/Mastering $2000
Digital Distribution/Physical Disc Production $1200
Compensation for Artists, Shipping, Perk Expenses $1000
Music and Art are stories that are being told. My music is my story and I'm sure in many ways, it's your story. My hope is that people will connect with these songs and it will inspire them to something greater.
For every person who backs this project, I thank you. Know that your contribution is helping me fulfill a dream of mine and I know it's helping me fulfill part of my purpose in life!
Anything you give is extremely appreciated!
