Sir Captain

THE PROJECT
Sir Captain is my band. Music is my passion. From the beginning of my high school years, I have constantly had a music project in motion. Throughout the course of my music career I have started five different bands, and Sir Captain has been the most successful. Starting in the Fall of 2014, we wrote an album and scheduled to record the music in March 2015. I was responsible for all marketing, graphic design and web-based needs to promote our music. We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising the funds to cover the cost of our album. I designed our logo and the graphics for the Kickstarter campaign; launched our website, set up a photo shoot for our album cover and along with other marketing materials, designed and ordered band merchandise (including mugs, posters, and t-shirts), launched our social media page and continue to design graphics for each show we do. It was a lot of work but incredibly fun to bring to fruition. Our band has found success in the Denver music scene and continues to turn heads.

WHAT I LEARNED
I learned a lot through this adventure! All of this was done in my free time, but something I would consider to be a second job. It was time consuming and required me to work late into the night to get things done, even when I would rather be relaxing. Making our dreams a reality was definitely worth the sacrifice. I learned how to run a successful Kickstarter campaign, start an LLC, put together an album from start to finish and set up videos to promote our campaign.
