mary lambert, the 2011 SEA grand slam champion and talented singer/songwriter, is set to release her debut EP with your help.
Hi. I'm mary. i write really beautiful songs and poems and sometimes i put them together so that you will cry lots [evidence: marylambert.bandcamp.com]
In conjunction with Dungeness Records, a grassroots label, I've been working on the EP for a year. There have been some setbacks and obstacles, but we've managed to push through. We're part of the way done recording the EP, but we've run out of money. we need your help to finish the EP. The response with the sneak peeks of the album have been overwhelming. I'm filled with so much gratitude to my friends, family, and fans who've supported me throughout the process. Now is the time to buckle down and ask for help financially:
Even if it's $5.
The buzz around the EP has been incredible; I can only hope that we raise enough money to truly deliver an amazing collection of songs. The crew I'm working with really believes in the project.The sounds we're making, the musical tone of the album, the instrumentation, and the arrangements are all part of a team effort.
But nobody works for free.
Traditionally, artists go broke funding their own projects, paying out of pocket. An artist can hope that they will make their money back once the album is finished, but with this great platform, you pre-order the album, and it's delivered to you. There are also some other incentives at every funding level.
Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing fundraiser, so if I don't make the goal, I don't receive any money, and you don't receive an album (or other hella cool stuff). NOBODY WINS.
With all of my sappy sappy heart, I appreciate your every contribution.
no. although that would be awesome. all the money goes toward the CD. paying musicians, studio time, mixing, mastering, pressing, and duplicating CD's.
