Delaney Gibson should be more than happy with how her Pledgemusic project goes, and she is. She has raised more than 130% of her goal for her upcoming album "Tall Like The Tree". I talked to her about the funding and her plans ...
50K MUSIC: In your Pledgemusic pitch video you call for money. What will you use all the money for?
Delaney: Making a record costs a lot of money! I'll have to pay for a Producer, musicians, recording, mastering, photography, artwork, music videos, radio promotion, publicity, and tour support.
50K MUSIC: I guess you're happy with how the project has developed so far?
Delaney: I am, the record has been finished since last year. We've had to push back the release date in hopes to raise more money for promotion. I cannot wait until we can release this. It really is my best work to date.
50K MUSIC: How did you find the way to Pledgemusic?
Delaney: I was researching different crowd funding platforms. Once I got in contact with Jayce from pledge I knew they had something special going. They really make an effort to get to know each artists that comes there way. They even came out to a few shows I had in NYC. Pledge is made up of really wonderful people that care about their artists.
50K MUSIC: Who should go for the 500,000 $ pledge?
Delaney: Ha, anyone that would like to take me as a wife I suppose. I did have someone "reserve" that pledge for a day, but they didn't follow through.
50K MUSIC: When will your upcoming album be released?
Delaney: We are releasing, Tall Like the Tree in September. We'll be giving out a new acoustic EP, Particles to everyone that pledged in June too.
50K MUSIC: What kind of album can we expect?
Delaney: It's a huge album. Orchestral arrangements and massive drums and percussion. It's a very cinematic record with driving piano.
50K MUSIC: ... any other plans for the next few months apart from producing the album?
Delaney: Rehearsing bands in Austin, NYC, LA and London for CD release shows. We're also still raising money on our campaign to help with all the promotional aspects.
50K MUSIC: And last one: Anything you want your fans and Pledgers to know?
Delaney: How utterly grateful I am for all of the outpouring of support! None of this would be happening without them. I can't really express how humbled I am by their love.
