I am sure you have heard a lot about the Indiegogo/Kickstarter campaigns that musicians are doing now. Some people think it is lazy to ask your family and friends for money so you can record while others think it is a great way to get funding. One of my Q107 Indie Invaders Noel Johnson, is nearing the end of his pre buy campaign. The nice thing about THIS campaign is that if he doesn’t hit his goal, you get your money back. So it is not charity at all. You either get a wicked album or your cash back. I would rather pre buy an album and wait a couple months then have to wait around for a musician to save $10000 waiting tables for some new tunes. This is also a great way to promote an album that isn’t even out yet. You can check out his album pre buy campaign here.
This is one of the songs that will be on the upcoming album if he gets the funding via indiegogo.com/noeljohnson
