We’ve already shared about Jesse Barrera’s own Kickstarter campaign, but JR Aquino is also looking for your help in making his next full-length album a reality. JRA follows the usual model of crowd-sourced fundraising, with escalating donation amounts earning you escalating incentives and kickbacks. If you’d like to be part of the JRA album for 2013, find out more at Kickstarter.
My name is JR Aquino. I’m a singer/songwriter from Anchorage, Alaska. For the past six years, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to share my love for music with the world via YouTube and live performances. With that said, I’d like to take my musical journey to the next step by creating my second full-length album.
Four years ago, I released my first full-length album entitled, “Exposure”, and in all honesty, I wasn’t entirely happy with the project. This is because I was still in the midst of finding myself as an artist. This time around, I have a better understanding of who I am as an artist, and how I want my music to be heard.
Now I created this kickstarter because I need YOUR help to make this upcoming full-length album come to fruition. As much as I want to focus on just creating the music the album, I’m afraid that it’s going to need more than that. This is where YOU come in. You have the opportunity to personally back me up and pledge however much you want to make this happen. From $1-$2000, I want to make this album the best it can be, especially for those of you that have gotten me this far.
You may ask…
What will your $$$ be spent on?
- Paying for Musicians
- CD Pressing & Packaging
- Exclusive Merchandise
- A Possible Music Video
- Travel Costs (To the studio in San Diego.)
What will your $$$ NOT be spent on?
- Killing Zombies. (Even though it is very important.)
- Finding my own Night Fury. (Watch “How to Train a Dragon”)
With all of that said, I promise all of you that if this project gets successfully funded, I will be sure to deliver an album that ALL OF YOU will be proud to be apart of. <3
