Geyster - New Album & Music Video

<p> <em><strong>We need your help to release and promote our new album !</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="550350_10151848289746315_163585207_n" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/102975/550350_10151848289746315_163585207_n.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Geyster</strong>'s new (and seventh) album will be released this october.</p> <p>  </p> <p> It will be a <strong>double album</strong> (20 new songs) covering a wide range of styles (pop music, funk, rock, folk, jazz, westcoast...), but always blended with this indefinable "Geyster's touch" that's been there since the very first album in 2003.</p> <p> The recording will be finished this summer and we'll soon start to work on the artwork.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The first single form the new album is already out, it's called <strong>"Do It"</strong> and its music video is available on Youtube here: <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FJJHlEdEUOJA%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DJJHlEdEUOJA&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi1.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FJJHlEdEUOJA%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Geyster (aka Gaël Benyamin)</strong><strong> </strong>started his career in 2003 and has released<strong> 6 studio albums </strong>so far with the name Geyster, covering a wide range of styles. His main influences are The Beatles, but a number of them come also from the 70's and early 80s, in Classic Rock, jazz, westcoast AOR, or funk &amp; soul music. We could mention artists such as Steely Dan, Gil Scott Heron, Led Zeppelin, Herbie Hancock, Billy Joel, The Wings, Hall &amp; Oates,...  </p> <p>  </p> <p> His first single<strong> "Bye bye Superman" </strong>was a frenchtouch hit in 2003. It was co-produced (along with the whole first album) with <a href="http://www.joachimgarraud.com/web/" target="_blank">Joachim Garraud</a>. You can check it our here:<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FwI7eGxxyW24%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DwI7eGxxyW24&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi1.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FwI7eGxxyW24%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p> His previous album released last year is called<strong> "Down On Broadway"</strong> and is much more rock-oriented. It features a classy westcoast ballad called <strong>"Jane"</strong>, you can check it out here:<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FH7EosG0Vc3g%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DH7EosG0Vc3g&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi1.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FH7EosG0Vc3g%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> You can also check out our Soundcloud account, which features quite a good number of our productions, here: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/somekind" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/somekind</a></p> <p> And our Youtube channel, which also features a wide range of our work, here: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/johnclaye" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/user/johnclaye</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> The plan here is to have a real budget in order to release the new album in the best conditions, which means to be able to shoot a <strong>second music video</strong> for our second single (the first one is the song "Do It" and it is already available on youtube) and <strong>also establish a promotion plan</strong> with different tools:</p> <p> -hiring a musical agent</p> <p> -buying some commercial spaces in magazines and on the Internet</p> <p> -organize a showcase in Paris...</p> <p> All this in order to make the album a success !</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>So we'd be so honored and happy to have you onboard in the team,</strong> and make this new album an exciting adventure where every participant will be rewarded in the end...</p>

Allocation of funds

<p> <strong>We will already invest a lot of money on our side in the release of the album. But a little help from you financially speaking will dramatically help us to reach our goals which are: </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>1/ FINANCING the album release which should cost a total sum of 6000 euros:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> - CD &amp; (double) Vinyl manufacturing (3000 euros): We will particularly spend time and money making a nice artwork and multi-page booklets with high quality paper, 180 grams vinyl cut (in order to render the best sound quality), etc...</p> <p>  </p> <p> - Promotion budget (3000 euros): Hiring a musical agent / Buying some commercial spaces in magazines / Use efficient web tools / Organize a showcase in Paris / Print some flyers, t-shirts, etc...</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>2/ FINANCING a music video for the new single, which costs a total sum of about 3000 euros:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> - Pay for the production of the video (rent some equipment, pay the film director, the cameraman,...)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Of course, 4000 euros would already be a tremendous boost to achieve what we have in mind, but keep in mind that more money means more promotion, more gigs, more music videos, etc... So, well, you know :)</strong></p> <p>  </p>
