My debut single

Please note that the duration of this project has been extended.

Hi, I am Ian Smith and this is my debut single "I can't do without"!

You can now be part of my single and all its revenues from streams and downloads! If you invest in my track, the collected funds are used to bring the production to the next level and to promote the track in European radio stations and streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. Also, I would like to produce a videoclip and promote it on YouTube and social media, to give my single the maximum chance to succeed!

I am very happy to be signed to the Global Rockstar music label that will take care of the marketing and promotion of my single. The latest Global Rockstar release "C'est La Vie" by ZOË has lately reached number 1 in the Spotify viral charts Italy. The Global Rockstar team and myself are fully committed to do everything to reach such a success with "I can't do without" as well! 

If you invest by making a pledge,  you will receive your first royalty statement approx. 3 months after the release of the track, followed by monthly statements. Then, you will be able to see your earnings on the dashboard of your account and withdraw your earnings or reinvest them in other Projects. 

"I can't do without" has been written & produced by Christof Straub, who also wrote and produced "C'est La Vie" by ZOË.

You can preview the royalty agreement by clicking on the button below, to know exactly which rights you purchase. 

My offers

In total, I offer 50% of of Net Royalties from the digital commercial exploitation of the track (from every stream and download) to investors. 

1% of Net Royalties is available for EUR 100,00. The minimum investment is EUR 25,00 for 0.25% of Net Royalties. If you believe in the success of the track, you can purchase more shares of Net Royalties, up to all available shares. Please note: Net Royalties are all incurring revenues from the commercial exploitation of the Master (the recording) less taxes and less a firm distribution fee of 25%. 

You will break even as soon as the track has reached approx. 2 Mio. streams on Spotify. To get an impression of the potential within streaming services, check out the number of streams of some popular tracks from the last years on Spotify: You'll see that popular songs can easily reach 10 Mio. streams or much more. Today, streaming has become the revenue source Nr.1 in the worldwide music business! Streaming also offers the potential of recurring and sustainable revenues since music fans continue to stream popular songs for a long time. You can now participate in this great business model: Just choose the amount of royalties that you would like to purchase below and click on the pledge button.

Please note that in some cases, Global Rockstar might license the track to partner labels if it makes sense from a business point of view. In this case, the licensee will help and contribute additional investment to make the track popular and therefore will participate in the revenues of the track too. If we choose to license the track, you will be informed via email notification. 

In addition to offering a great opportunity, an investment in music also entails risks. Nobody knows for sure if a new track becomes a hit, and you might not recoup your investment in the desired time frame, or in the worst case, at all. 

Please note that this is a "Keep-it-all" project. This means that we are going to realize our plans even if the maximum funding goal is not reached. This means also that by making a pledge, you already become a shareholder and you don't have to wait until the maximum funding goal is achieved. Please read carefully our Terms and How it Works.
