homeless tunes is a one man show, and I didn't start it with riches in mind. Being a full-time self-employed web developer keeps me busy, well, full time. I do want to continue pursuing my music recording interests, so I have been thinking of offering deals on recording in exchange for first cuts from sales here.
For example, if a musician wanted to record a 4 song demo with me, I would ask for between $50 and $100 up front (depends on so many factors such as additonal musicians, tracking style, etc.) and then I would keep all revenue from purchases up to $150. The only catch would be that if sales don't meet the quota by a certain time I would ask for direct payment.
I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about this yet, but I'm guessing at the right $$$ numbers it would be very appealing to some musicians out there. And as always, I'll do any drum tracking at no additional charge.
Howdy all you John Craigie fans! Thanks for finding your way here to homeless tunes. I know, the site is a little bare at the moment (but what picken's there are, are good!). And that's where I need your input. John Craigie has a TON of music, and much of it isn't available anywhere except by request at one of his shows.
So... what do you want to hear from him?
I'll get him in the studio and we'll put some new/old stuff up here, just for you! Let us know in the comments.
Yes, you need to have an account here to comment, but you can log in with your facebook account, so no excuses!
