Hello fans, friends and folks,
I have a new EP out. It's called "Ain't Nothin' but the Truth." And I really need you to buy it. You see, it's like this:
There used to be a record industry where artist development representatives and record compnay executives found aspiring musicians and bands, signed them to a contract, gave them an advance on royalties, recorded their music, distributed their albums and promoted their tours. Ain't no more.
Now, the price of being an independent artist is that you have to finance everything yourself, in advance - copyrights, session musicians, studio time, engineer and producer fees, album duplication costs, distribution, marketing and promotional expenses (not to mention having to fund live performances).
So, to release this six-song EP, I am financially in the red. If the hundreds of folks who willingly signed my mailing list because they liked my music and wanted to be kept informed of my career each spent $5 for the album I would be well on my way to recouping my losses.
And, most importantly, I would be heartened to know that my heartfelt songs were being enjoyed by an appreciative audience of true fans.
The six songs on this album are some of my most meaningful compositions. I wrote and sing the songs. Everything else on the album was done by the multi-talented Chris Klimecky. He did the arranging, instrumentation, producing, recording, mixing and mastering. I think he did a spectacular job of bringing just the right amount of guitar-driven energy to my soulful songs.
Won't you please help my music find its way into the world and help me continue writing songs and releasing records? (There is a full album of ballads on the horizon.)
You can buy a digital download of my EP on BandCamp (http://davidguilbault.bandcamp.com/album/aint-nothin-but-the-truth). I don't have the money to have CD's printed. But, that's a dying music medium anyway. Everything nowadays is digital.
If you purchase my music, you can even name your price. If you need to, you can pay less. If you'd like to, you can pay more. The listed price is five bucks - five bucks I could really, really use.
Thanks for your time and consideration. I truly appreciate your support.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
Cheers for now,
