Aly's second album quickly attracts 'believers' through crowd funding website Sellaband.
€5,800 has been raised so far toward the recording of Aly Cook's 2nd album. Aly's first album was recorded using crowd funding on Sellaband. Aly is now at 14% of her intended goal of €40,000. Investors in the album are referred
to as "believers".
Essensially to explain crowd funding, There's 4,000 shares at €10 each. So far Aly has 83 believers who have bought 580 shares between them i.e. Aly has raised €5,800 toward the recording of her 2nd album. So she
needs to sell more to be able to record. Believers are on a pro-rata share of 50% Aly's share of net sales income and those holding over 20 parts or more, are on 40% of Aly's airplay royalties. For 5 years after the release of the album. Buying one €10 part. Gets you a copy of the album when it is completed and manufactured.
