Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The primary goal is to fund the studio recording, production, mixing, and mastering of a full length album. The final outcome of the project would be a well-crafted and professional audio recording of between 9-12 songs. The most basic concrete goal is a professional finished compilation of recordings. Artistically, the goal of the project will be a collection of songs true to craft and in alignment with my artistic vision and approach. Finally, I will use this new record to achieve the professional goals of increased booking of live shows and to expand my audience outreach. The goals stated are quite concrete, and therefore a professional finished compilation of recordings will be the determining artifact of the final goal. The recordings will be recorded, mixed, and mastered using professional equipment by professionals in the field. Furthermore, the goal of the project will be met with a collection of songs true to craft and in alignment with my artistic vision and approach. The collection of songs will have a cohesive sound and will be curated to allow for a listening experience that is high quality and inspiring. I will be able to determine that I have expanded my audience reach by the ability to book more frequent and higher profile shows, increased attendance at live shows, increased sales in online music, and more opportunities to play outside of or beyond the Duluth/Twin Cities area.
