Indiegogo empowers people around the world to fund what matters to them. As the largest global crowdfunding platform, campaigns have launched from almost every country around the world with millions of dollars being distributed every week due to contributions made by the Indiegogo community. At its core, Indiegogo is an open platform dedicated to democratizing the way people raise funds for any project – creative, entrepreneurial or cause-related.
Crowdfunding is the process of raising money online through contributions made by many different people (known as backers), who share the same passion for a project. The idea is that a lot of people each give a little in the hope of raising enough cumulatively to allow the creator to create the promised product. One of the amazing parts of crowdfunding is pitching in and helping ideas you'd like to see come to life! It's very rewarding to see projects that you fund go from idea phase, to seeing the stages of it's development, and (if all goes according to plan) see the project be successful. Crowdfunding puts the power of patronage into the hands of the people who actually care — my supporters. No middlemen.
The music industry has changed greatly in the past several years, and myself like other artists realize we need to adapt to this new environment. To break through and be successful, sometimes we have to take on the responsibilities that traditionally belonged to the music system. This is my attempt at just that. No middleman. We will make this project happen together.
Creating an album of original music is no small feat. Currently the album is about 80% completed. The bulk of the funds from this campaign will go towards compensating producers, mixing/mastering the completed album, marketing/promotion and the campaign perks/rewards. I'll do my best to be as transparent as possible as I understand that this is a partnership and I couldn't do this without you!
I’ve put together some really cool, limited edition incentives to reward you for your generosity. What’s more, you will be the first to receive my music ahead of its public release. You are making this album possible, and you deserve to be rewarded! There are different tiers of giving: the more you give, the more you get! If you have any ideas about perks you would like to receive please let us know!
The campaign launch is March 15th and will be the first day that you can purchase a reward and back the project. Until then please sign up for the mailing list in order to be notified when the campaign is live. At that time we will send you a direct link to the official campaign page so you will be one of the first to know.
Whether or not you contribute financially, I would really appreciate your help in spreading the word about the campaign. After all, this campaign will only be successful if we do this — TOGETHER. Every ounce of your support means everything to me.
Res is a powerful soul rock singer whose single, They Say Vision, was a Top 40 hit with the remix going to number 1 on the dance charts. Other singles from her debut album, How I Do, include Golden Boys and Ice King both which received radio play and struck a chord with music lovers from all walks of life. This album has paved the way for her cult following today.
Res’ live show is incredibly engaging and entertaining. Her dynamic vocals pull all of the attention to the stage and the audience is in awe of her energy and stage presence. Many of her fans profess that her live performance is one not to miss and that she often sounds better than her records. A Res performance can consist of a few different band configurations. She can do everything from a DJ set to an acoustic guitar format and all the way to a full band.
Res completed work on her second album (Black Girls Rock!) and planned for a 2006 release. After some label shakeups the album would ultimately be shelved and Res would eventually break away from her label. While fans were looking for Res and her follow up album, instead she popped up singing supporting vocals for Cee Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley on his St. Elsewhere World Tour for the smash hit "Crazy". Following the tour, Res decided to follow the path of an independent artist and released Black Girls Rock! all on her own. This decision was in direct response to the overwhelming demand from fans thru her social media touch points.
While steadily working on new music, Res found a ying to her yang, with Brooklyn rapper, Talib Kweli. This musical connection morphed into their side project, a group called Idle Warship. The group’s debut album, Habits of the Heart, was released in November of 2011.
Also during this time, Res teamed up with director, Steve Zegans, to tell her story in the form of a documentary titled, “The Res Documentary: An Industry Diary”. Res is the main subject of the film but within her story, you will relate to the challenges of most indie artists today as well as see her as a dedicated lover of music and entrepreneur. Res gives you the insiders view on the pros and cons of being both a major label artist and an indie artist. She lets you into her life thru her family, daily work activities, intimate acoustic performances, her achievements and harsh realities of being a DIY artist.
Res’ latest EP, ReFried Mac, is a dedication to Fleetwood Mac's vocalist Stevie Nicks. Res respectfully transforms five of her favorite Fleetwood Mac songs into her own. The first single is Dreams and was released in the Fall of 2013.
Res is presently finishing up a new album of original songs entitled, RESET, to be released in 2016.
