Your New Favorite Band

My handsome boyfriend Brad, has started a project called Your New Favorite Band. He is a very talented musician, and loves to help out other musicians. Here is a little bit about the project straight from his mouth.. well.. finger tips.

My name is Brad. I'm a musician/music lover from Orem, Utah.

For a few years now, I've had this goal to maybe one day release a compilation CD of artists/bands that I feel deserve more exposure. I wanted to include bands from all different genres so if a person who loves punk music picked up the CD, they'd also hear some good hip hop or indie music too. I think it's great to expand your musical tastes.

The plan is to get 1,000 copies of the CD professionally printed and duplicated, and then I will pass them out all over here in Utah. I have set up a Kickstarter page for people to help me fund that whole process because I don't have the money to do it all on my own. The final product will be 100% free so I won't be making even a penny on anyone's songs or anything. In fact, I will probably donate a lot of my own money into this to ensure that it actually gets made.

The whole point of this project is to help people discover new music. I want to be the bridge between the amazing bands and the listeners. I hope you discover your new favorite band!

Check out the website here, and the donation page here.

Pssst.. I created the record logo!

Okay... now back to our adventure pictures..


  1. Nifty idea! You could probably even include that "free download" thing where people can download tracks after making a donation of their own choosing. Granted, you may get some lame donations of a penny or whatever the minimum is (I never did this myself, but friends of mine who are musicians have tried to gain exposure this way), but you will probably also get some more generous donations. In this way, your project can extend further than Utah (like over here on the East Coast)!

  2. as soon as the compilation is all put together, i will release be a digital version that will be free to download, which may include extra songs. i'm still playing around with ideas, but i like your idea of maybe giving a couple songs away if you donate a certain amount. thanks!
