The yet untitled release from Ryan Price is a Freedom Solutions Recording Plan (FSRP) Album, meaning it is being created through a process that saves the artist money by taking budgeting and planning to the next step. The plan, developed by Loren Weisman, relies on the artist willingness to invest the time needed in to their project to maintain the control of their music and their career.
The artist gives a percentage to a charity or organization they believe in while in turn raise the funds from donors or investors to avoid the pitfalls of industry control. This process allows a clear plan from start to finish, from preproduction to release and the whole process by empowering the artist with the knowledge, the tools and the skills to become self sustaining and self sufficient.
