Help Jenn Record! (Finally!)
WE MADE IT!!!!!
P.S. Every dollar over our goal STILL HELPS!!!! WAHOO!!!!
If you would like to hear more, (a full song!) feel free to watch the video below!!
If you still are not quite sure and would like to listen to a few more songs (I've received some requests!) Well, here's some good news! If you're in the area, I'd love to have you there! (I will also be playing with a full band !! )
Why hello there.
Thank you for clicking on this project! Thanks for watching my video! And thank you for reading what I'm writing.
So, to give you a little bit more background, this shot was taken today.
Is that a microphone headset used for sold-out shows?!
That, my new friends, is a headset used for Customer Service.
Everyday I get to connect with people around the world.
Not in the way I really, truly want.
Here's Where You Come In--
Kickstarter is ALL or NOTHING. Your cards will be charged at the end of the duration only if I reach my goal. (Wow-ee. I'm already sweating bullets just writing this out!!)
So- say we are able to raise $14,999-- because it's not the goal, I wouldn't get a single cent.
Now, this kickstarter is more than just raising funds to me. It's about reaching you. It's about connecting with you. That, to me, is the beauty of art.
"What are you going to do with my money? Swindle it?".
Here's the plan.
First: With your backing, I will finally be able to record five fully-produced incredible tracks. This includes top-of-the-line-hair-curling musicians, the producer, mixing, mastering and studio time.
Second: We'll shoot music videos to accompany the songs. Your backing will go towards finding the RIGHT videographer/director, location costs, editing, any costs associated with production, set design, etc. etc.
Third: Your backing will fund marketing and advertising for the material. This includes bloggers, magazines, radio, and other various outlets.
To sum it up, your backing will create the platform for me to launch my material. To create my art my way, my voice. The voice we have created together.
What does it mean to know Jenn Blosil?
It means you know a new friend.
It means you know a new friend with a lot to offer.
And all of it- my dreams- lies in your hands.
OKAY WHOA- this way too serious.
No, seriously. It does. That's true.
More than anything, though- it's a smart idea to donate.
Because you'll love it.
(This is the most presumptuous thing I've ever said!)
Except, guess what.
What if I told you I really believe that you will?
Or what if I let you decide for yourself?
It means a lot that you're even taking the time to read this!
It's an incredible thing.
Here's to us!!!
-- Jenn Blosil
Update--- Here's a quick shot taken from the show on Friday night! Awww yeah!
Why, yes. Yes indeed.

PRIVATE TRIP TO THE HOMELAND-- VIENNA, AUSTRIA. Okay, I said I was stoked for the friendship bracelets. TRUE. And you know what else? For this, too. So- I was born in Vienna, Austria. Home to the Walz, Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms and Blosil. The piano I have written most of my songs on? Also from Vienna, Austria. Get this. I will fly YOU out to VIENNA to be part of a PRIVATE concert IN A PRIVATE RECITAL HALL. (I am typing this in all caps because, come on-- HOW COOL IS THAT?!). Once there, we can visit the area where I was born, take you to eat the best ribs off the Danube, eat some chocolatey "Palatschinken" and have some incredible conversations. Are you loving this? I'm loving this. (You will also receive VIP access, the tee-shirt, the bracelet, the music and the high-five).Estimated delivery: Jan 2013
