Hugs From Distant Neighbors is a 7-song EP being recorded by David Lareau and The Copperpots. Sending out an SOS for HELP.
Hello out there to all of you internet cosmonauts.
My name is David Lareau and I am a singer/songwriter. I'm in the middle of making a record. I've had the luxury of being signed to record labels in the past and doing some pretty humbling things in the music industry. This time however, there is no label and no funding to help me finish this project.
I've partnered up with Kickstarter to help raise funds to finish my project. I am in need of $2,000 in 45 days. The recording process is finished and now I need the extra income to help finish the mix/master/and pressing of this record. The EP is called "Hugs From Distant Neighbors" and features 7-songs. The album was produced by Noel Hartough and will be mixed by John Kurzweg (Creed, Puddle of Mudd, Jewel, Eagle Eye Cherry)

For a full list of the incentives you can read the column to the right.
If the goal is reached by the deadline of 45 days then everyone will receive their gifts. The project will be funded. And sunshine will rain down on the world. If the goal is not reached by the deadline you will not be charged anything. You will not receive your gifts. The project will crumble and fall. And the world will probably stop turning. So LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER to ensure humanity prevails! Anything made over the goal will go to promotion and tour support.
