This folk-rock foursome is ready to record our 1st full-length album, to be released this summer. But we can't do it without your help!
Sam Behymer and the Bowties are ready to record our first full-length album. We have spent the winter writing some incredible new songs and developing an exciting new sound, and we can’t wait to record the music and get it to our fans! If you're not familiar with our music, you can hear & download our live album for FREE at sambehymer.bandcamp.com! The new album will include 10 brand new original tracks, to be released digitally worldwide. We will also print physical copies, which will be available for purchase at live performances and via SamBehymer.com.
And that's where YOU come in! We need $2500 to make the best record possible, and we're partnering with Kickstarter.com to allow our fans the opportunity to invest in the project. The funds we will raise through this campaign will pay for many things including sound engineering, studio musicians, digital distribution, and disc duplication. And as a way of saying THANK YOU for your donations, we've set up a system of rewards for each level of contribution; you can donate as much or as little as you like (every dollar helps!), and the bigger the donation the bigger the reward! A simple $35 contribution will get you a digital download of the album before it is released to the public, a signed physical copy of the album, AND a limited edition Sam Behymer & the Bowties t-shirt. Feeling especially generous? A $200 contribution gets you a digital download of the album, a signed physical copy, a limited edition t-shirt, two dozen cookies baked for you with love by Sam Behymer herself, a free download of an exclusive original bonus track not included on the album, your name in the liner notes of the album, AND an invitation for you and one guest to a private pre-release dinner party with Sam & the Bowties in Los Angeles!
We are so so excited to share our music with you, but we can't get it to your ears without a little help. So go ahead click that big green "Back this Project" button & don't forget to share this page with all your friends!
Thank you so much for all of your support!
All our love,
Sam, Aaron, Ethan, and Jack
