Help Northern Hustle print and distribute their debut album "Forgether".
5th BONUS KICKSTARTER GOAL UNLOCKED! 7 DAYS LEFT!!!!! 07/23
We just passed our 4th Kickstarter goal! All of our supporters will be on the guest list for our CD release show(s) and you'll also be notified of the address/date/time of our cd release swim party/bbq.
We now have another bonus Kickstarter goal, this is our last and final goal... and it's a doozy!
SEND NORTHERN HUSTLE ON TOUR!
Once we pass $3,500 we'll hit the road headed for you! We've had an overwhelming amount of support from people outside of our home town and friends/family. Because of this we want to come to you. We're going to a do a short run tour hitting Vegas and LA, as well as a couple of other destinations chosen by you. We'll take a vote on what cities we should head to on our Facebook and we'll roll into whatever towns have the most votes.
This bonus goal is to cover the rental van, gas, food and a hotel room for at least one of the nights on the road. We're also hoping to ask one or two other local tempe bands to join us on this adventure.
You guys have been so amazing, don't stop now! Please tell all your friends about us, post up on Facebook, Twitter, Whole Foods message boards... anywhere anyone can see. Tell everyone to bring Northern Hustle to your town! We can't wait to play for you and celebrate this cd with you!
4th BONUS KICKSTARTER GOAL UNLOCKED! July 16th, 2013
WE'RE MAKING A MUSIC VIDEO!!!!! You guys are so awesome. We'll be contacting some video people soon to start working on concepts. We'll keep you in the loop, as you'll definitely be in it.
Once we pass $2700 we'll put all of our kickstarter supporters on the guest lists for our CD release shows and give you information for the after swim party / bbq that will be in our typical Northern Hustle style. Let's do this, SPRING BREAK!!!
3RD BONUS KICKSTARTER GOAL UNLOCKED! July 10th, 2013
WE BROKE OUR SECOND BONUS GOAL!!!!
This is incredible, let's keep it going! In addition to the Kickstarter incentives that you've paid for everyone will now receive two buttons, a sticker and a handwritten letter with every product we ship out.
Once we pass $2,500 we will record a music video for our single "Homestead" featuring all of our Kickstarter supporters that want to participate. Since you helped fund our first video, it only makes sense that you should be in it. Let's make this happen!
2ND BONUS KICKSTARTER GOAL UNLOCKED! July 9th, 2013
We broke our 1st kickstarter goal of $2000!
Once we pass $2200 we'll include a Northern Hustle sticker with each of the products we're shipping out!
1ST BONUS KICKSTARTER GOAL UNLOCKED! July 3, 2013
You guys are amazing!!!! Our kickstarter has been fully funded 3 days into the project! We cannot thank you enough!
Once we pass $2000 we'll include a personalized handwritten thank you letter to everyone that has donated to our kickstarter, as well as a 1.25" button with Northern Hustle Artwork.
UPDATE #2 NOW SHIPPING TO THE UK
We've received several requests for us to ship to the UK, and since all we want to do is share our music and art with everyone we can.... of course we'll get our products to you.
Include $10 when ordering the cd and $20 for anything more than the cd. We're aware it probably won't cover the shipping costs, but we're happy to eat whatever the extra cost is just to get our stuff to you.
UPDATE #1 July 3, 2013
This is amazing! We're only three days in and we're $100 away from our goal. Once we fulfill our original goal we'll start planning out bonus goals to fund bonus gifts for our kickstarter supporters. We've already got some great ideas in the works! I can't wait!
Northern Hustle started last year with Drew and Jon writing on Drew's patio, and what started as a hobby and a fun way to fill our afternoons quickly became 'Forgether'. 'Forgether' is a concept album, a story from beginning to end, following two characters throughout the beginning to the demise of their relationship.
We began recording the album in October and have been working on it ever since. We've been lucky enough to work with Dustin Chaffin at Jivemind, who has put as much time and effort into our album as we have. We were also very fortunate to have our talented friends contribute to our album, such as Jake Arrington (Underground Cities/There Is Danger), and Gabby Booth (Gabatron), to name a few.
The album is now complete, and now we need your help to get it printed and distributed. We of course wouldn't ask anything from you without giving you something in return, which is why we've come up with some awesome incentives and products specifically for our Kickstarter supporters.
$8 gets you a Digital Download of our Full Length Concept Album "Forgether" as well as our first recording "Chapter One". 'Chapter One' is the first song we recorded for the album, and the beginning of our never-ending story. We decided not to include it in the album, and it will only be available to our Kickstarter supporters.
$12 gets you a Physical Copy of 'Forgether'. The CD's are professionally replicated and printed, and the cases and artwork are handmade. The album artwork was created by Drew based off of the concept of the album. Each CD will be assembled by Northern Hustle with love for your listening and viewing pleasure. In addition to the CD, you also get the Digital Downloads listed above.
$15 gets you a Digital Download of 'A Bad Case of the Splits', previously recorded tracks from Jon and Drew. 'A Bad Case of the Splits' is a 6 song EP of acoustic tracks written and recorded by Jon and Drew before they started writing together. With your $15 purchase you also get a physical copy of 'Forgether' as well as the Digital Downloads listed above.
$25 gets you an illustrated limited edition 'Forgether' saddle-stitch book, which includes illustrations and lyrics for each song on the album. The books are illustrated and designed by Drew and printed by him. They will only be given to our Kickstarter supporters, and will only be available as a digital .pdf download afterwards. In addition to the 'Forgether' book, you also get everything listed above.
For $50, Drew from Northern Hustle will draw your spirit animal. A detailed custom illustration of your spirit animal chosen by Drew including text explaining your spirit animal. The poster will be digitally printed on 12"x18" 12pt cardstock presentation paper. In addition to the custom illustrated print, you will also receive everything listed above.
$75 gets you a limited edition "... Gives Me The Shakes, In A Good Way" t-shirt that will only be printed specifically for our Kickstarter Supporters. It will be printed on the same quality material as the rest of our shirts but will only be available this one time and will never be reprinted. In addition to this stylish swag, you also get everything listed above.
$100 gets you listed by name in our actual cd credits. On both the printed physical cd and the .pdf file for the digital downloads, we'll thank you by name for making our album possible. In addition to getting your name in Northern Hustle history, you'll also get everything listed above.
$125 gets you tickets to our CD Release Party / Family Dinner. Anyone that knows Northern Hustle knows that we love cooking giant meals for friends and we love playing house shows. For $125 you get tickets for you and a friend to come to our dinner/party to celebrate the release of our cd with our close friends and family. We provide everything needed for an awesome cd release potluck and house show, all you have to do is show up (costumes optional). In addition to being our guest(s) of honor, you also get everything listed above.
$200 gets you a house show at YOUR HOUSE. You tell us when and where to play, either as a full band or acoustic. We'll travel anywhere in the valley to play for you and your friends, and you get everything listed above.
For $400 you get to rearrange one of our faces. You either get to punch Jon in the face or shave Drew's face... unless you're feeling charitable and want to do both! In addition to ruining our faces, we'll still give you everything listed above... but we're not happy about it.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
All of the printing for our merchandise (excluding the shirts) have been fully budgeted out and is all being produced by Drew from Northern Hustle.
The CD is currently being mastered by Dustin Chaffin at Jivemind and is scheduled to be completed before our 30-day Kickstarter project comes to an end.
The CD cases, CD replication and the t-shirt printing has all been fully budgeted through our kickstarter goal and they all have a 7 day turnaround.
Although every aspect of our merchandise has been carefully planned for, there are still problems that may arise that we can't foresee. We've taken this into consideration and plan to release the CD and merchandise to our kickstarter supporters 4 weeks after the completion of our kickstarter goal, on the day of our cd release show.
This allows us time to handle any possible issues that may come up and ensures that all the products will be available at the same time.
