Sadly, Pledge Music has taken all the money they raised from many, many artists, and has spent it all, leaving us with nothing.
And because all merchandise ordered through my successful Pledge Music campaign has already been shipped out, there is no way to process refunds. There simply is no money.
I’m very grateful to everyone who pledged their support for “Ice Worlds”. The record has been a great success, garnering rave reviews and widespread national airplay. Unfortunately, though, it looks as though I will likely not ever receive the money that was pledged.
Going forward, I will be setting up a subscription service through my own web site so that Super Fans can stay connected to me, and stay involved in the creative process. Fans will have exclusive access to new music long before it is commercially released, as well as live streaming from the studio, and other exclusive content. This will be much better than any “crowdfunding” website like Pledge Music, etc.
Thanks again for your support. I deeply appreciate it. If the day comes that Pledge Music contacts me and pays what they owe, I will let everyone know.
