It's been 3 years since Blisses B put out a full length record and we need your help to release a new one!
Greetings and Salutations,
We are Blisses B, a happy, pyschedelic rock band from San Francisco, California. As a band, we're very active but for some strange reason, it's been 3 years since we've released a full length album. We're bursting at the seams with new material and we need your help with this Kickstarter Campaign so that we can finish building the ship and send it on her maiden voyage!
Recording a full length record is an expensive endeavor, and we're asking you, our fans, to help make this Kickstarter a success. Please follow our campaign and feel free to share this with anyone you think might be inspired to help us along the journey.
How it works:
Kickstarter is very simple. The most important idea is that if we don't reach our $9,888 goal, your credit card will not be charged and Blisses B will get nothing, that's right nothing! You can contribute to the campaign in 2 ways. You can give a donation out of the goodness of your heart and receive nothing in return, but how fun would that be? The other, and by far the most fun way to support our Kickstarter Campaign is by selecting a reward, such as a MP3 download, CD, Vinyl Record, T-shirt, or house concert.
We have included packages for ALL budgets, rewards start at just $12. Your love and support means more than words can express.
Thank you kindly for supporting us, we heart thee.
- Evan, Ben, Noah and James

The Breakdown of all things Kickstarter:
$9,888K CHALLENGE – Our goal is a lucky $9,888 for this Kickstarter campaign. The money earned will go to...
-Recording in the studio
First, you lay down the songs! We will be recording here in SF with Nick Testa, a former member of Blisses B who also recorded our most recent album Thirty Days, Sixty Years.
This is very tedious, time consuming, and perhaps the most important step. Brother Nick Testa will be at the helm here again.
The final phase of the audio production and you need a master to do this!
-Artwork and Graphic Design
We're keeping it in house again by tapping the vision and skills of Graham Keegan, Ben's Brother and the graphic artist and designer from Thirty Days, Sixty Years.
-Pressing CDs & Vinyl
After the artwork and layout is done, it's off to the presses! This go-round, we're really stepping up the manufacturing phase of the process by going to Portland, Oregon's famed Stumptown Printers. If you choose the vinyl LP, CD, or Lithograph; It's going to be beautiful, one-of-kind, and handmade with some serious TLC!
We will make a music video of at least one song from our forthcoming full length album, courtesy of Nick Testa Productions.
-Promoting the album
Blisses B has never had a publicist. Quite frankly, PR is probably the main reason the big dogs get so much more exposure than the little guys. While Blisses B hopes to always be one of the 'little guys' in a sense, we sure wouldn't mind having Lady Gaga's PR team! With your help, we'll hire a music PR specialist to promote our new album.
So PLEASE, click on your favorite reward to the right...and do pass this on to a friend, because sharing is caring!
MOST IMPORTANT: If we don't hit our $9,888 goal by October, 15th, we don't get anything!
