The Pitch

The Project: 10 songs and 1 music video

All of us have a dream. This dream has been living in us ever since we can remember and no matter who or what tried to kill it, it continues to grow.

When I started out 10 years ago, I was just like any other young, aspiring folk singer songwriter in Nashville. Like every other great artist, I started out playing the small gigs, hoping that some A&R representative would be listening in the audience. Overtime, I built up my fanbase and played larger concerts, until finally I got the opportunity I was hoping for: a record label deal. Things were looking up, and I was following the path of the greats.

As my music began to evolve, I started to blend different genres into my music. It was no longer just purely folk, but a cross between folk and pop, like Lumineers meets Brandi Carlile. This is my sound, but it no longer fit the label’s model. They did not know how to promote my music anymore and I knew that for this next album to be successful, I had to leave my label and do it my way.

So this album is my dream put to music. It’s not about making songs fit some industry “formula.” It is about the struggles I have had to endure as an artist, the lessons I have learned from them, and the importance of keeping faith that it will all work out in the end. It is a homecoming, a return to what made me fall in love with music in the first place and also a statement that there are multiple paths to pursuing your dreams.

Here is my “Little Dream.”

Fundraising Description

Security Type:
Royalties A royalty is a contractual right to receive a percentage of revenue, such as a percentage of total sales of a product or overall revenue of the project or company. A royalty can be based upon net or gross sales, contain a cap on the total amount you receive back as a return on your investment or be subject to certain liens. It is very important that you understand the terms of the royalty before investing. There is no guarantee that you will receive a royalty payment and the royalty may expire without any investment return or result in the complete loss of your investment. An investor who receives a royalty is not a shareholder and therefore has no voting rights or other rights of a shareholder. Transfer restrictions may prevent you from assigning or selling your royalty to a third-party and there is no guarantee that a market will ever develop for you to sell your royalty interest.
Round Size: $30,000

Minimum Investment: $10.00
Disclosure The valuation here was provided solely by the company and was neither calculated nor approved by Stampede Live. Unlike listed companies that are valued publicly through market-driven stock prices, the valuation of private companies, especially startups, is difficult and you may risk overpaying for the equity stake you receive. Before investing you should carefully review the company's disclosure documents filed with the SEC to determine how the securities being offered were valued both presently and in the future, and whether the valuation of the securities and the company itself is reasonable considering the company's business, management, revenue model and profits, among other factors.

Investor Q&A

How do you determine the total royalty percentage listed in the offering?

The securities being offered in this Regulation Crowdfunding raise have been determined by the Company as a direct ratio to the budget of the music album. The Company did not employ investment banking firms or other outside organizations to make an independent evaluation.

Why does the duration of my investment only last 3 years?

Typically, most albums and EPs’ digital streaming and download royalties come within the first few years. Additionally, there are financial costs each time payments are made to investors. To maximize investor returns and minimize financial costs, we limit the time length of the deal.

How does the project make money?

You are investing in the digital sound recording rights for the Little Dreams album. The major digital platforms include Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, etc. Typically, these platforms pay the master holders $3-$7 per 1000 plays. As an investor, you are getting a portion of these royalties based on your ownership stake pro-rata (according to shares owned).

What am I actually investing in?

You are investing in the sound recording royalty rights for a project. A royalty is a contractual right to receive a percentage of the overall revenue of the project. For music deals, you will be earning a portion of the project’s overall revenues.

When/ how do I get paid?

If the Little Dreams album is successful, you will receive an annual royalty payout starting a year after the release date of the project. You will hold these royalty rights for 3 years depending on the specific terms of the deal. This distribution will be sent directly to the bank account you added to your Stampede Live account.

Payout Distribution Example

How do I earn money?

To understand how payout distribution works, we have provided a theoretical example. Please note that this is just for demonstration purposes and is not reflective or promissory of the actual payout distribution for this deal.

Your initial capital contribution (investment): $1,000
Your units: 1,000

The payout distribution structure occurs as follows: Investors will recoup 100% of their initial investment from the Company’s aggregate distributions pro rata (according to units owned). Any remaining profits will be shared 40%/40%/20% between artist, investors, and Stampede Live respectively.


Notes

Your overall earnings: $466.67

In year 1, the project has $35,000 in distributions. The first $30,000 will go to repaying the investors’ initial capital contribution, making investors fully recouped. For the remaining $5,000, investors get 40% or $5,000 * 40% = $2,000. Therefore total investor profits are $2,000. For your distribution, you will recoup your initial $1,000 capital contribution from the first $30,000. Your earnings are calculated as $2,000 * 1,000/ 30,000 (total investor earnings * your shares/ total shares) = $66.67.

In year 2, the project has $20,000 in distributions. Investors have already recouped their initial capital contribution so total investor earnings are $20,000 * 40% = $8,000. Your earnings are calculated as $8,000 * 1,000/ 30,000 = $266.67.

In year 3, the project has $10,000 in distributions. Investors have already recouped their initial capital contribution so total investor earnings are $10,000 * 40% = $4,000. Your earnings are calculated as $4,000 * 1,000/ 30,000 = $133.33.

Summary: After 3 years, the project made $65,000, total investor earnings were $14,000, and your investment earnings were $466.67.



Please understand that this is just a theoretical example to help you understand how payouts work for this offering. We cannot guarantee that the project will be profitable and like any other investment, you could lose some or even your entire investment. For example, let's say in year 1, there is $15,000 in distributions, which all goes towards repaying investors' capital contributions, and your share of this is $500. In year 2, there is $5,000 in distributions, which again means this all goes towards repaying investors' capital contributions, and your share would be $166.67. In year 3, there is $2,500 in distributions, which again means this all goes towards repaying investors' capital contributions, and your share would be $83.33. Therefore after 3 years, the project made $22,500, total investors recouped $22,500 out of their $30,000 investment, and you recouped $750 of your $1,000 investment.
