Homestretch! Thanks for being a part of this project!
Hey wonderful backers,
Thanks so much for checking this out, whether you've pledged or not. The response has been incredible and generous so far. I just wanted to let you know that we have exactly 3 days left, as the Paul Banks & The Carousels Kickstarter campaign closes on April 6, at 5:00pm Central Time on MY BIRTHDAY. Thanks to you, we've passed our minimum! But we haven't gotten to the bigger goal that I was initially too nervous to shoot for, and there is still time to spread the word and add to pledges.
You've already done so much more than you probably realize, and I appreciate you more than I could ever explain.
If you were thinking about spreading the word to more friends or increasing a pledge at the end, the time is now, and every single pledge of $1 or more will go entirely to the production and release of great recordings and a great final product. A small portion will be taken by built-in Kickstarter/AmazonPayments fees, too, of course. No extra money will be lying around or going towards buying my clothes or Ramen Noodles or anything like that.
***If you would like to buy me a birthday beer this week, just add that $3 or $5 or $7 (depending on the drink) to the Kickstarter instead.***
much for everything, from your generous pledge to posting online to emailing friends, family,
Thanks so much. You make independent music projects possible.
We'll be sending out surveys at the end to get any info we need to get the rewards to you. There's a lot of work to be done on those, and I'm excited about getting all the sweet shwag created and brought to your doorstep.
Thank you thank you thank you,
P.S. Be sure to "like" us on Facebook if you'd like. Love.
