My name is Josh Warner. I am an Emcee/Producer and co-founder of Denver hip-hop collective Travellers Music. These funds will be invested to produce 1000 cd's for my upcoming album Glory Days and pay for worldwide digital and CD distribution.

Writing songs and performing has been my platform for self expression and reflection for the better part of the last 10 years.  During that time, I have had the oppurtunity to tour alongside some of my idols, perform across the country and live out some of my wildest dreams imaginable. However, none of these events would be possible without a considerable amount of hard work, dedication and persistence. Being an unsigned musician requires a special kind of determination and will power. Below are a few obstacles that many independent musicians, including myself, face on a regular basis.

-Investing thousands of dollars into music equipment in order to help produce a quality product.

-Investing time and energy into playing instruments, producing and writing songs.

-Paying for mixing and mastering, music videos, artwork, physical cds and merchandise to sell at shows and on tour (shirts, stickers, vinyl...ect)

-Hours spent booking shows, networking, promoting, building relationships with promoters and likeminded artists

As Hunter S. Thompson once said, "The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side". However, encountering these obstacles and finding creative ways to manuaver through them, collaborate and build something beautiful along the way makes for an extremely humbling experience. I have sacrificed many relationships and career oppurtunities to hold onto this sometimes miserable, taxing lifestyle in order to pursue the ultimate dream of living off the fruits of my labor.

I have played a significant role in my community over the years giving other artists (local and national) the oppurtunity to perform and helping them build a platform. I am incredibly grateful to have booked shows, built production schedules and given advice to other musicians by sharing my own successes and failures. By funding this album you are also giving me the oppurtunity to continue playing a intricate role in our local music community.

I will be booking my album release show late March/mid April (official release date will be announced asap). Over the years I have produced six albums ranging from underground hip-hop to instrumental/electronic (all of which are availible for free download). I never enjoyed the idea of selling music; however, I have invested a significant amount of time, money and energy into recording and mixing this project. The album features guest verses from Ag Flux, Alltrueistic and Newce and the artwork was illustrated by my close friend David Iwane. I am incredibly grateful and excited to finally release it to world. 

My goal is to have these 4 panel Digipack cd's in production by March 14th in order for them to be ready for the album release show. By supporting this project you are providing so much more than just a physical album which I can sell at shows and on tour. You are also giving an international audience an oppurtunity to hear my music through nearly every major music streaming service availible online.

The amount of gratitude I have for any contributions donated towards this project is truly unprecedented. This is the most honest, noble release I have ever produced. Every one of these songs holds a piece of my heart and soul. With that said, I am genuinely grateful from the bottom of my heart to anyone who helps fund this album and/or shares this campaign. For those who would only like to donate $10, consider this an album pre-order as you will recieve a physical copy Glory Days within two weeks after production. All shipping for any of the reward packages is free.
