Oh, the places Jonny Craig will go. Former Dance Gavin Dance vocalist and drug addict/awkward criminal Jonny Craig recently released three interesting cover songs (including a song originally by Justin Timberlake) and announced a solo headlining tour. Today, he has launched a crowdfunding campaign for a new EP on Indiegogo that you can find here.
Jonny is without a label now, so the crowdfunding could make or break him. In his own words, “I want to get some new music out to all of you, MY FANS, but in order to do so it’s going to cost some money. As I no longer have a label budget behind me I decided to team up with the people at Indiegogo to offer you, the fans a chance to be part of this and make this EP come to life!” The most interesting options are spending $2500 to sing on the EP yourself and a grand to get an acapella performance by Craig. Ten bucks will fetch you an autograph, which is a pretty decent deal.
We don’t expect everyone to have the crowdsourcing success that Kevin Devine had, but let’s hope more artists let the fans determine their future. We’ll let you know how the EP turns out.
