A nice little follow up to the last article.
Check out what bands like Bruce Springsteen, Dave Mathews, AFI, and more have made per show in 2013.
Here is a little breakdown of the finances of a touring band, courtesy of Shane from O’Sleeper.
These are just great, real world tips about the reality of gigging in a small scale band.
Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes, City on Film, Jack & Ace) has an interesting proposition for you.
He wants to release a new City on Film EP, and is giving you the opportunity to invest in the project, via his (brilliant) website, Downwrite.
The website is essentially a song store where fans can purchase custom songs from some of their favorite artists.
He opted to put a unique spin on it, by giving the purchaser a chance to recoup their investment on the release!
I want to record a brand new 6 song City On Film EP and source it exclusively via this Downwrite profile! I’m making 6 songs available down there for the Solo/Multi-Instrument Studio Recording price of $300. (Choose the “Six/Fourteen” option) I will use the $ to go into the studio and record the 6 songs using your inspirations. When it’s done, i’ll digitally (and independently) release it. But that’s not all.
I’ll give you, the purchaser a portion of the songwriting credit, which means you’ll make royalties each time the song is purchased. If all goes well, you’ll make your money back AND THEN SOME.
