Kickstarter Greater Alexander Debut Album

Timeless-Organic Music Lovers! Imagine listening to Cat Stevens as you walk past Bon Iver holding a Paul Simon record. #Positivity

 

  • Launched: Oct 31, 2012
  • Funding ends: Nov 30, 2012

I’m looking to you for help to cover the costs of my debut record, “Positive Love”. With your help, this album will take off in dream-like proportions. Become a part of something special.

Over the last 10 years I have honed in on my skills as a singer-songwriter/producer and I am ready to share these accomplishments with you. Having gone through numerous jobs in the past, I have deepened my fundamental observation of life. We all have hardships that we are going through and I’m trying to help shed light towards a positive outlook on life. Ever since letting people into my craft, I have had an overwhelming amount of response that has helped me open up within the last year. People have created music videos, drawn artwork, taken stunning photographs, written articles, and even painted exclusive art on a piggy bank for me to enhance my street performance. I’m thankful for all I have received and I am inviting you to help create the Positive Love debut record movement with me.

Such a beautiful moment at ex.fm studios.

Last night, Greater Alexander stopped by the exfm office for a little meet & greet and to play a few tunes. It really was something special. We chatted about life, not relying on “hope”, puting in the necessary work, and doing what you do because you love doing it so much and can’t picture…

Pretty right on. I don’t have an album yet, but I go and busk on the streets of Royal Oak, I go play open mics. I’ve set up my e-mail list and have built my e-mail list to over 400 people in less than 10 months. The more action you take, the more you get closer to your goal and accomplishments.

There’s kind of a thing going around over the past year or two where it’s become not only acceptable but the accepted norm to NOT promote your band. It’s like the backlash to 5-10 years ago, when the internet blew up, and kids spent hours getting fake MySpace plays. That carried over to Facebook…

There’s still a couple hours left to get in on a part of history. Here’s to a new found freedom for artists. Maybe the next step is for artists to start figuring out how to get help from fans without a third party system to avoid additional fees that kickstarter and amazon take. Maybe through PayPal? Either way, it’s a learning experience for independent artists

As a DIY artist it’s up to me to educate myself about the music business. I do my best, but some elements of the business seem exceedingly opaque, in particular, performance royalties as handled by the performing rights societies such as ASCAP and BMI. The royalty “system” for radio and…

If you are a musician looking to sign on to a PRO – here’s an informative outlook on what ASCAP takes when you play larger venues.
