Last May when my client, Nick Dahlquist, came to me and he was stressed out. He was busy wrapping up a semester at school and getting five songs ready to record. On top of that, he was launching his crowdfunding campaign.
He sent me a short message that simply asked,
“Which Is The Best Platform For Crowdfunding?”
And at that time, I felt horrible that I didn’t know the answer to this. It would have taken a lot of stress off his plate.
Lucky for you, I’ve narrowed it down to the only two that you should consider for your recording project.
Here they are:
Avoid PledgeMusic, because they take 15% of whatever you raise.
In the end, Nick went with Kickstarter, and it worked out great. He funded his entire EP that way.
Here’s what Nick had to say about working with me:
Chris created a recording environment that was the ideal blend of professional and casual. He gained my trust quickly as my producer, and even quicker as my friend. The questions Chris asked and the challenges he posed along the way broadened my understanding of myself as a songwriter, and of the craft itself. Chris helped me find my signature vocal sound that will undoubtedly shape how I approach all my future albums. — Nick Dahlquist (St. Louis, MO)
