Crowd Sourcing -- Exposing your need for money... Anyone done it successfully? I would like to start a conversation on how people go about letting a larger community of people know you need cash to finish your project or to even advertise your products. Can anyone name some good and helpful strategies for starting a crowd sourcing campaign?

I've been in the music industry in western MA since the early 1980s. It used to be possible to make a living as a musician playing clubs and doing local concerts, but no more. Local venues have realized they can have musicians play for free, or for a pass the hat scenario, making money off of their efforts if only by providing "LIVE MUSIC" to their customers. Now, 30 years later, the only way to make a living as a musician is to teach and to play weddings and corporate events. I enjoyed Matthew Moran's piece and have been reading the blog. Thank you! There are lots of great suggestions there for traveling musicians, and for musicians that are willing to take a full time job so they can play their music. But for those of us who want to focus on music, there have to be alternatives. I have a couple suggestions. These are things that work for me: 1. Figure out your niche. For me, it's Celtic music and Weddings. Discover the best aggregators for your niche: the place where your clients congregate, create a profile and pay for the service. For me it's WeddingWire and GigMasters. Yes it's expensive, but it pays off in gigs almost immediately. 2. Use free as much as you can. Someone suggested you make CDs and give them out, or sell Tshirts. I say that's an expense I cannot afford. Instead, I use Youtube (FREE) instead of CDs, SoundCloud (FREE). I also like Craigslist for advertising local, specific offerings and lessons.

Looking for Songs/Production for Fast & The Furious 7 Soundtrack Music plays from top to bottom so opportunity for anything hot. The last movie one spawned a 3 million selling single ("We Own It" with 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa) and sold 300k with no promo. The goal is 1mil+ albums and many millions of singles. Looking for tracks (some w/ hooks) and great songs. The film is based in LA and Abu Dhabi and needs lots of anthemic rap, hip hop, and hip hop influence electronic music (no R&B). Think Dr Dre/Eminem, Drake, Kanye, MIA, Major Lazer, Glitch Mob, YG, Skrillex, Naughty Boy, DJ Snake, etc. I am more into the Skrillex type of music but am open to other genres if the track is worthy. If you are interested let me know but you really do have to be at the top of your game to get in on this one.
