About Be Steadwell

I'm a proud, weird, shy, silly, black, queer, musician storyteller. I love making things for folks like me who don't have the love or support they deserve. Being a full time musician is magical and also tough. Recording music, shooting videos, mics, studio time, maintaining instruments and hardware is not cheap. I deeply dread asking for help, but I started this page in an effort to change that. Because I need help. Any bit you can give will help. I love and appreciate each of you. If you have thoughts, wants, questions, let me know.

I'm currently raising funds to record a new album!  I'm so excited about this project.  This will be my second studio album.  I love recording and mixing music myself- but without industry grade quality, I simply won't make it on a professional level.   To put it simply-if you'd like to hear my music in a film, on the radio, at the gay bar, and or abroad- the quality of my work needs help. 
If I achieve my goal of earning $2k per month, I'll be able to finish my album by winter!  Thanks you for taking the time to read this and consider supporting!

For clarity and transparency- here is a list of costs that one may encounter when recording an album.  

Studio time- $80-$150/hr
Session musicians- $150-300/day
Producer fees- $200-$500/song
Mixing and mastering- $1,500-$2,500/project
Album art- $200-$800
CDs, USBs, LP printing- $1,000
