Candy Lee is raising funds to take her new album out on the road so she can share the love to more people in more places.
Thanks for coming to my Kickstarter Page! My name is Candy Lee and I'm an indie folk singer/songwriter based out of Fayetteville, AR (and soon to be Jacksonville, FL). In August 2010, I released my first solo full-length album, The Gate. It has been receiving great reviews here in Fayetteville, and I'm ready to go on tour and share it with more people in more places. This will be my first tour ever, and it's been pretty tough trying to get paying gigs in towns where people have never heard of you. Therefore, the purpose of this first tour will be to gain exposure, and spread as many copies of my album around as possible.
The tour will start in Jacksonville Florida. From there we will head down to Fort Myers to visit my folks and play a few shows, and then tour all the way up to Charlottesville VA, stopping in a few key cities in FL, GA, NC, and TN and then make a loop along the coast.
And this is why I need the help: I'll be traveling roughly 2,700 miles on this trip, which equates to about $513 worth of gas. We will also need money for campsites/lodging some nights. Plus we will need money for food (when I say we, it means that my husband David will be coming along and helping me in all ways possible). If we're on the road for 30 days, spending on average only $30 a day for 2 people, that's $900. All that money sure does add up, especially if you're not really making much money in the mean time.
So, if you love my music and want to help me spread more of the love and light, and help me take my musical career to the next level, please donate. You get awesome rewards in return, so why wouldn't you want to donate? :)
