Princess Superstar Partners with Pledge Music,
 
 Offers Incredible Incentives to Fans


Princess Superstar is partnering with Pledge Music, the international direct-to-fan platform, to raise the funds for her next album, “The New Evolution.”  They have just launched an innovative campaign that offers fans the chance to cut out the middleman, become her patrons and have some wild experiences with the Princess herself in the process!   Pledge also gives artists the chance to donate part of the money they raise to a charity of their choice.  Princess Superstar will be donating some of her proceeds to PETA. You can see the campaign page here.

She’s just the world a taste of her new material with the Crookers remix of her track “Lollipop” . You can  download the track here 
 
Fans have the chance to purchase incentives ranging from a signed copy of the album to a yoga session to a private burlesque strip-tease from Princess Superstar! Aside form a world-renowned musician, DJ, and businesswoman, Princess has been a coach on MTV’s MADE and is offering packages of rap lessons, DJ lessons, and music business mentoring. She is also an accomplished cook and vegan, and some of the packages include her cooking a dinner for a pledging fan at either Princess Superstar’s house or the fan’s place-their choice! At the end of the day, it’s her music that makes jaws drop – and fans can get access to demos, a private show for them and their friends, and even the chance to go in the studio with her!
 
Princess Superstar has been a music business renegade for the past 15 years. She has successfully run her own label, was among the first artists to have their own video games, and was also among the first to start making their own bootlegs and mash ups. Her adventurous business ideas are only rivaled by her inimitable sound. Her tracks were recently featured in the films Brunoand Get Him to the Greekand she was on Grandmaster Flash’s album alongside Busta Rhymes and Snoop Dogg. She is hard at work on the forthcoming album, “The New Evolution”, which features production from The Rural (Gorillaz, Beyonce).  
 
“”I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to make my next record (the SIXTH ONE!) in partnership with the actual people who support me!
I think a new world is coming and this is a revolutionary, intimate way to make art happen. I am so grateful that your dollars actually get to make my dream materialize. Also I am very psyched to offer all sorts of experiences to you- such as glamorous “Be a Princess Superstar!” makeover; customized birthday songs; meditation lessons; or even private full on burlesque show with my dancers! Can you imagine if this were available in the 1960’s and 70’s? Man I think I would pay anything to hang out with the Beatles or Chaka Kahn! And, since I am an animal fanatic and am active in charity work, I am going to donate some of the money to PETA. This is a revolutionary process for an evolutionary album 🙂 Thanks for being a part of it! Love, Princess Superstar”
 
How Does Pledge Music Work?
 
Pledge Music tries to keep its offering very simple – an artist sets a target for an amount of financing they wish to raise to fundthe recording and marketing of their new album or DVD.  The artist then approaches their fans to ask for ‘pledges’ towards the total in return for a digital download, CD or DVD of the resulting project.

The pledges available are tiered so that the fan can pledge, for example, one amount for a simple digital download, a slightly higher amount for the digital download + physical CD, an even higher amount for a bundle that includes the digital download, the physical CD and t-shirt and so on. The artists can determine themselves exactly how they wish toinspirethe pledge money.

Unlike some other fan funded offerings no money is taken from pledger’s accounts until the pledge target has been met.

The key differences between Pledge Music and other fan funded investment models are –

·      No money is taken from the fan until the entire pledge target is met

·      The artist retains ALL their rights forever whether they be recording, publishing, merchandising or live. Pledge Music is not interested in owning any rights that belong to artists.

·      Pledge Music charges the lowest, flat rate commission in the marketplace.

Chilly Gonzales- Ivory Tower(September 14)+Never Stop video+free mp3

Chilly Gonzales Returns with Ivory Tower (September 14; Arts & Crafts)

“Never Stop (Rap mix)” Video Available Here

Free MP3 of “Never Stop (Rap Mix)” Available Here

“… highly entertaining.”New York Times

Famed rapper / pianist / Grammy-nominated producer Chilly Gonzales is about to release Ivory Tower, an ambitious, intelligent and – typically of Chilly – clever album, produced by German producer Boys Noize. The album is a musical companion to a new feature film of the same name, written and produced by Gonzales, starring Tiga, Peaches and Gonzo himself. The film, which centers around two champion chess-playing brothers (Gonzales and Tiga) who share a love for the same girl (Peaches), confirms Gonzales as the musical genius and legendary all-round entertainer he’s always claimed to be.

 Chilly spent most of the past year wooing audiences with his now infamous Piano Talk Shows, which included several sold-out shows in New York (and two @ SXSW 2010) featuring high-profile guest collaborators and instigators such as Andrew WK, Sia, A-Track, and Princess Superstar creating beauty and mayhem on stage. But the main attraction, as always, was Chilly G, aka “Gonzo”, who delivered his trademark wry, semi-autobiographical rap lyrics over original piano works, with additional storytelling in between songs.
 

When he’s not entertaining the troops onstage, Gonzales is also known to be a “Super Producer” of sorts, working with a wide array of artists. Best known for his production work with Feist (whose album The Reminder earned him a Grammy nomination), Peaches and Jamie Lidell, he has more recently worked with Marina & the Diamonds, thecocknbullkid and Tiga, not to mention older collaborations with Bjork and Daft Punk. All of which is to say that, despite all the jokes and shenanigans Gonzo is known for, his talent for sharp arrangements and his ear for pop hits are simply undeniable.

As for his own material, Gonzo has criss-crossed the musical world. His early releases tended toward lo-fi rap (The Entertainist; 2000) and dark, gritty cabaret (Gonzales Uber Alles, also 2000 and re-issued simultaneously with IVORY TOWER accompanied by 2 unreleased tracks from back in the day), or a combination of the two (Presidential Suite; 2002). In 2004 he took a step in a different direction with Solo Piano, an album consisting entirely of beautifully arranged original compositions of classical and jazz piano numbers that became his most well-known and best selling album to date. In 2008 he took a turn in yet another direction with Soft Power, a nod to 70s AM rock and the pop ballads he reveled in as a child (and which features the more distinct pop sensibility he is known for as a producer).

Ivory Tower is yet another U-turn, as Gonzales delves into pop with a smattering of “Piano Talk Show” style ballads and some stunning instrumental pieces that double as film score. Whether Gonzales is attempting euphoric disco sing-alongs like “Ivory Tower”, playing somber piano on songs like “Final Fantasy”, or shamelessly tearing apart his worst enemy (and himself), Chilly nails it every time.

 Throughout it all, one thing remains certain: Chilly Gonzales is indeed the hardest working man in music today, and he’s doing it all for you. He lives to entertain you. It’s time to show him some gratitude.
