#HelpBringEmpressToLife - Electronic Pop/Urban/Chinese twist (Bristol UK)

Thanks so much for your interest! My new album Empress is inspired by my new Cheung Island website, where I live as Empress by day and super hero music artist by night! Here's two singles from the coming album, as examples of my work.

Why I'm crowdfunding
I have produced and recorded the album already, self produced and self-funded. I have the cover photo taken, and artwork in process. (Empress, Moon, Fire artwork by www.marcusway.com). I now need to produce the CD, plus digital download keyrings (locally made at The Factory at Filwood Green Business Park and prototypes photographed by Lewis Campbell), so I can keep sharing my new music physically (funding more music making) and passing them on to industry contacts. 

When will you get your reward?
All rewards will be available to collect at or after the launch of my East Asian festival - Mini Moon Festival - on 1st October https://www.facebook.com/events/1941506322739667/ (or delivered after this date if you have chosen a delivery option)

The costs I'm raising funds for are listed below:
£1086 including vat for CDs and all related work; Professional CD Replication, Glass Mastering  and Artwork Setup Costs, Data Verification of all Discs, Full Colour Litho Printing, Standard 4 Panel CD DigiPak (CP04-01), Artwork Prepress Review.
