Pezzettino and LMNtlyst press new album to CD and 12" Color Vinyl!!
Hey amigos!! My name is Margaret and I play accordion and write songs while washing my armpits. Perform as "Pezzettino" and will be releasing my fourth album this Fall with LMNtlyst, a multi-instrumentalist and hip hop producer. LMNtlyst and I recorded an on tour days off and over the internet. There was sweat, there were fists and hugs, and we're extremely proud of the result.
"LubDub" is a sound entirely unique to us, a hybrid of accordion, effects, and melding our two distinct styles. It's done. It's ready. It is going to be released without the support of a label.
Staying independent means we get to realize our creative vision to the fullest. It also means that we have full financial responsibility on our shoulders! Essentially, the album is financially released by fans, friends, and family who purchase the album. YOU are the backers, making it happen.
So we checked our wallets and partnered with the good people at Kickstarter to try to raise the remainder funds to press the record- $1,000 in 34 days.
You may be asking yourself, "What do I get out of helping you, Ms Pezz?" Oh, let me tell you!! First and foremost there is the satisfaction that comes with knowing you're making the dream happen, YOU are individually and personally to credit and thank. You also GET AWESOME THINGS in return for helping out!
A cornucopia of goods and services await you, dependent upon how much you contribute.
GOODS include but are not limited to:
-Advance copies of the album
-Music available exclusively to Kickstarter donors
-My freaking DRESS!
SERVICES include but are not limited to:
-A Cover Video for the song of your choosing on YouTube
-A beat made just for you by LMNtlyst
-A private house concert by me for you
