Alex Alvear has done several firsts with Microfundo. Alex was the first artist started working with. He was the first to raise funding to do a recording session with his band Mango Blue at the beautiful new studio at WGBH in Boston.
His album is in post production this month (see video below) and Alex will be the first to release a new studio recording produced entirely by fans via Microfundo!
And Alex is now the first to be able to take part in our great new offer that Microfundo can now make to fans as part of our new artist and fan recordings collective.
As of now, actually as of these past several weeks, Microfundo is working with every artist to produce a live recording. Every fan who joins Microfundo (and microfunds $25 towards any single artist campaign) will receive a download copy of that artist's live recording - PLUS every other live recording produced by Microfundo throughout the year.
We hope to create a great new way for you to discover (and own copies of) new music by some of the greatest talents playing today.
But in addition to getting all the above live recordings - including a new live recording by Alex and Mango Blue - if you join between now and January 1 - Alex will also send you a copy of his new studio CD as soon as it is released in 2010.
Please help Alex wrap up his last funding efforts (he's raised over $6,000 so far) and use the select box below to join Microfundo with a $25 membership - enabling you to get Alex's new CD, his new live recording and live recordings by every other Microfundo artist as they are produced throughout the next year.
Alex Alvear & Gonzalo Grau take you behind the scenes as they do post production work on Mango Blue's new recording.
