I would like to announce Geoff McBride's campaign on the crowdfunding platform www. indiegogo.com/geoffmcbridejourney. (Crowdfunding is asking a crowd of people to donate a defined amount of money for a specific cause, project in exchange for various rewards.) You can reserve pre-release downloads, CDs, T-shirts, videos, concert tickets, etc.

For those who do not know about Geoff, he is a local Santa Rosa Beach resident who was a part of Team XTina on Season 2 of The Voice. He is also a former Arista Records recording artist. Geoff has collaborated with numerous artists and has traveled the world performing. Since late 2006, he has been performing at local venues in the area, including The Old Florida Fish House, The Ocean Club, the former First Note Music Hall, Schooner's, The Boatyard, 723 Whiskey Bravo, etc. He has also performed and will perform at local events like the Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center's gala, Covenant Hospice gala, Arts Quest, the upcoming PCB Seafood & Music Festival, Chautauqua Winery Harvest Festival, Share the Shelter Fest, 30-A Songwriter's Festival and numerous private events.

After a lot of planning, this campaign is to fund his upcoming project "The Journey to the Soul." Think the voice Geoff McBride, sounds of world music, soul, etc.... All combined together! It's going to be incredible!
This is his opportunity to show the world his own voice.

The budget is not only going towards the album, but to paying musicians, photography, graphic design, duplication, promotion, radio play, mechanical licensing in the U.S. and other countries.
A lot more goes into bringing music to the world than just the album these days. We are going to release it in Canada, The U.K., Germany, Holland, France, Japan and many other countries. It is going to be pushed hard by our company.

The producer (and co-writer) of the album is Trammell Starks. Geoff just performed on his remake of "Summer Breeze." You can hear this single at
http://www.trammellstarks.com. It will be recorded both here in Santa Rosa Beach and in Alpharetta, Georgia. Subsequently, as Geoff started to hone this project, Geoff knew that Trammell was the perfect person to collaborate with. When they spoke about it and Geoff told him where he wanted to go with the album, they both were amazingly on the same page. Both of them have been greatly influenced by the sounds of soul, jazz, world music and they are bringing those inspirations to this album.

Please check out the link below and pass along to others. The more people know about this project, the better chance we have to get it fully funded.

Skunky, truly this is the opportunity of a lifetime right here, for both Geoff and for his fans. Crowdfunding allows the fans to be a part of a project from the beginning & receive great perks. It gives Geoff a lot more artistic freedom & that is so important when creating music. That way, he can truly share his self with his audience.

We wish Geoff the best!

Thank you so much, SkinShark!

Update:

We are just under $16K for the project right now, which means we are at 40% of the goal! Geoff's got 11 days left to get this project fully funded.

Crowdfunding isn't about donating money. It's about pre-ordering perks and supporting a project from the ground up. So many incredible projects have come about through crowdfunding.
