#FTMusicBook is the Hashtag to tweet to support this site!
Are you an up and coming artist or band who are thinking of taking your career in a more independent direction? Free of the contracts and lack of control found in the more traditional methods of production and distribution.
Well look no further than Free the Music Book!
The guys over at Free the Music Book are very excited for the site, and believe that it could be a real opportunity for music fans to celebrate and support their favourite musicians and the band/artists involved to drive funding for very little in return. #FTMusicBook is already working with two groups, the first being a soulful pop group named The Franks and the second being a female duo, more formerly known as Loaded Sista. There is also another act that is yet to be announced.
This new music Crowd funding site is dedicated to giving bands and performers and most importantly their fans the power to create an album with the money they raise. The concept is simple, fans of the artist or band can show their appreciation for their work through contributing any amount of money they like. Where things are slightly different from other platforms, is that the site demands your project break a £1000 quota set by Free the Music Book; if your campaign can reach this target by 30 days of going live your project can stay on the site.
The site will remove any of the artists that don’t manage to reach this quota, however music makers will be given the chance to resubmit if there project is not successful the first time round.
If you are a band or artist interesting in entering yourself for extra funding towards your debut album the barriers for entry are as follows:
• You MUST have a Facebook Page with 200 Likes
• A previously released single
• The albums production progress must not be heard about first through the #FTMusicBook site. There should be no mention of you album anywhere else on the web.
• YouTube Channel with viewable video links connected to the album
Finally, the sites motto is ONE CHANCE. GET IN THE BOOK. KEEP YOUR SOUND ALIVE. So, any aspiring musicians heed their words of warning and get yourselves on over to the next big thing in Album Crowdfunding!
