30 day tour to release a compilation CD with 16 original songs about hometowns. Webisodes and documentary to follow.
Feels Like Coming Home is a celebration of hometowns and musical communities. Last fall, Special Passenger Records asked bands in our network and beyond to reflect on their homes and towns and lives and write an original song for a compilation. The songs are really amazing and we are so excited to finally release the album. In addition, Kelly and Amanda will be going on tour to release the CD in each city, meet and talk to wonderful people, film interesting and beautiful things and share it all via the internet. We will post short webisodes on www.feelslikecominghome.com throughout the trip and will eventually release a documentary about independent musical communities and the trip.
The money raised from Kickstarter will go towards making 200 cds, renting a car and fueling our adventure. We are paying for half of the cost, and any additional money we make will go towards future Special Passenger projects.
Thanks so much for checking this project out and for supporting us and other independent record labels and musicians. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate in the documentary or if you have any other questions!
