Boy dubbed the ‘Mini-Mozart looks to set up a new Record Label with help of Crowdfunding site, MusicRaiser
Curtis Elton is utilising the crowd funding site made for musicians to help fund his venture into the world of music production. Having achieved an ATCL qualification(1st year of a university degree) at only 10 years old, this music prodigy should have few problems in creating a platform for new music talent.
Prodigious 10 year old pianist Curtis Elton ATCL (1st year of a university degree) and brand new crowd funding website Music Raiser are teaming up this month, aiming to make Elton the youngest record label boss in history.
Already a huge success in the EU, MusicRaiser is a unique site designed to support musicians as the world’s first crowd funded record label. Launching in the UK, one of the first projects on their agenda will see ‘Mini Mozart’ Curtis Elton pledge to set up a record label to promote talented child musicians.
Curtis got inspiration for the company after having been unceremoniously turned away from this year’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in spite of getting four ‘yes’ votes and rave reviews from the judges. The change of fortunes were especially surprising as producers had sought out the talented pianist to try again after booting him out at the same stage in 2011. Having been given assurances that the same would not happen this time, Elton was disappointed to learn that he would once again not make it to the live semi-finals.
Through this failure, Curtis is coming back fighting and making his own way in the music industry – as well as giving other talented youngsters the chance to do the same with the help of Music Raiser.
With over €1 million raised in its first year on the EU mainland, MusicRaiser has an existing community of 40,000 fundraisers looking for the best new music projects in the industry. UK artists will be able to call on this community for the first time – including Curtis Elton, the ‘Mini Mozart’ looking to blaze trails as the youngest label boss ever.
