Gregory Douglass Kickstarter Campaign
If you’re not already well aware, I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you that I’m also a serious musician! I use the term “serious” because I have been taking my music career VERY seriously for over a decade now and I’ve inherited quite a dedicated following as an independent musician. I take great pride in having steered my own ship over the years and I have built my own little indie empire along the way. It’s essential to point out that I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of my family, friends, and fans. They are the reason I get out of bed every morning and continue to make music, and they are the very people who have supported me in successfully crowdfunding 6 studio albums to date. I know that many artists are still on the fence about crowdfunding, but it’s important for everyone to understand how essential crowdfunding has become to the creation and sustainability of music today.
I’m 15 days into my 30-day Kickstarter campaign (Feb. 1 – Mar. 2, 2014) right now to help raise funds for my ninth independent full-length studio album. I’m off to a great start with over $9,000 so far thanks to the support of many! I think this is my most emotionally-provocative work yet – these songs promise to awaken you from within and grab at your heart strings, and that’s why it’s so important for me to release this album. I’m looking to give these songs the professional, richly layered, dramatic production they deserve, so I hope you’ll join me in making this dream a reality.

If you’re not already familiar with my music, let me tell you briefly about myself. I’m an internationally renowned independent musician with eight critically acclaimed independent albums under my belt. My evocative, alternative sound blends “Rufus Wainwright´s opulent musicality and Justin Timberlake´s accessible soulfulness,” according to OUT Magazine, and a recent spotlight on NPR’s Morning Edition coined me “one of New England’s best-kept secrets.” According to Pandora’s founder, Tim Westergren, Douglass is one of the top independent artists on Pandora radio today. I’ve shared the stage with artists like Shawn Colvin, Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor, and Margaret Cho, and my 2009 Battler release featured duets with friends and fellow Vermonters Grace Potter (Grace Potter & The Nocturnals) and Anais Mitchell. My last album Lucid was a dream-themed concept album and ode to Kate Bush’s The Dreaming, and was my first attempt at producing an album entirely on my own. It was a fun experiment, but it proved to me how much more is possible with the right team in place! For more info, please visit me at http://www.gregorydouglass.com
