Anybody remember Daniel Mustard, the homeless musician that gained internet fame in 2009 through a viral video of him performing a cover of the song Creep? Well, despite gaining popularity, he hasn’t been sitting around doing nothing. After releasing an EP in 2010, it looks like he’s ready to hit the studios again to record some new material. Unfortunately, recording music isn’t free (if you don’t own a studio and the equipment) and he needs funds to proceed. In order to fund his new EP, he has decided to turn to the folks who got him big in the first place: his fans on the internet.
Daniel Mustard has launched a Kickstarter project in support of his upcoming EP called Fragments of Bone. For just $5, you can pre-order a digital download of the EP, while $110 or more gets you a live Skype performance and $450 gives you a homeless walking tour of Lower Manhattan. If you’re interested in checking out his music, you can stream his first EP off bandcamp, or watch the viral video that got him big (embedded above). He’s currently got about $3,000 of his $15,000 goal and 46 days left – check out his Kickstarter page here.Related articles:
