Do you feel the need to accomplish something? Do you have an extra $2,500? Would you like to executively produce an album?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions then this news story is for you! Yes, you! Let me tell you how: not-that-well-known-but-still-devotedly-loved-lo-fi-King-and-home-recording loner R. Stevie Moore has decided that he is going to finance his next album with the Kickstarter program. What’s the Kickstarter program? Well, if you didn’t visit the link above and want me to just tell you, I will: according the website at the link above: “We’re the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world.” Not counting my Uncle Bill, I bet that they really are the largest.
Synopsis: R. Stevie Moore wants YOU to help finance his next album, and, in return, he’s set up an excellent rewards program to make the action of giving much easier. Casual financial-backers receive gifts ranging from CDs and t-shirts up to Executive Producer credits for the album. For those more dedicated fans (or bored billionaires) you can keep on giving up to a $2,500 level and receive dinner with Mr. Moore, a chance for a 30-minute conversation where you can ask anything, a private home concert, or even the chance to sit in during a recording session and lay down your own bitchin’ tuba solo!
