On the Sunshine Coast in Australia late last week, 18 year old Caloundra rapper Nathan Tessman (aka MC Wheels), began celebrating his latest milestone reaching 100% of his PledgeMusic.com crowdfunding campaign. Now he is able to release his debut album “My Introduction” in the coming months.
As an independent artist, sourcing funds pledged by fans can be the best means to get your music out there without relying on a nonexistent record deal or a generous bank manager to pay for the pressing & marketing.
The past 12 months have been an incredible journey for MC Wheels, taking time off from recording tracks for the album to play the Sprung Festival mainstage, support slots for Joelistics and Evil Eddie, and interviews on The Project and Weekend Today talking about the inspiring journey this young man is on, using his music to inspire others along the way.
Pledges can still be made towards the crowdfunding campaign, with any additional funds being used for marketing & spreading the word of MC Wheels and 10% going to Inclusion Plus charity on the Sunshine Coast.
