Leftfield singer-songwriter Johnny Dowd is raising money via Indiegogo to cover the expenses for recording his new album Execute American Folklore. He aims to raise $15,000:
Like many musicians today, I no longer have record company support and have to finance my own projects. Fortunately, I have my own studio. But I need to pay engineers for recording, mixing, and mastering. I also hired a vocalist for this record. Then I will have the costs of manufacturing, promotion, design, photography, shipping to distributor in the UK, and the fees connected to this Indiegogo campaign.
I will be grateful for any help you can offer to get my latest and greatest, “Execute American Folklore,” into your hands.
Perks include a double CD with rare live material recorded his first band Neon Baptist and T-shirts making the buyer an honorary employee of Zolar Moving Company, the moving business in Ithaca, NY, that Johnny and his business partner Dave Hinkle have run for decades.Live dates:
