Update #2: Pick a Song, Any Song!
Good Morning, You Wonderful Backers!
We're at 55 backers and $2370! I'm so humbled by the amazing show of support, and I can't wait to send out those 55 albums (and much more) to the people who are in this with me.
Embarrassing Pics of Me!
As per usual, when we hit the next increment of $500 ($2500), Kelly is going to release another embarrassing photo of me on Facebook. She mentioned something about tube socks and my brother's underwear. I really hope she's just messing with me. Go here to see the previous 4 embarrassing pics of me.
SPECIAL REQUEST VIDEOS
I'm super-psyched that 5 people have already picked the $100 perk so that they get to pick a song for me to cover and record for them. I'm so excited to get these assignments and post them on my YouTube channel. As you can see, I already love honoring other amazing singer/songwriters by doing covers.
Thank you SO much, Backers GARY STOUDT, JAMES HARTWICK, JAMES MERRYMAN, KELLY BURGOON, and KELLYE SERNA. I cannot wait to get your assignments and make those videos for you.
Here's a link to a live cover I did of Ani Difranco's "You Had Time." I love how the audience quiets down when I start playing. They were so great. If you like what you see, give me a spin! Or dedicate a song to the one you love...
I'm still waiting for someone to pick one of the House Concert perks and invite me into their home for a night of music. Wouldn't it be cool if some friends pooled their resources and picked this perk? Me + them + an awesome party with a live band. What could be better? And I promise I won't even drink milk out of the carton...
SPREAD THE WORD!
Thanks again for all of your support. If you don't mind, please consider spreading the word about my new album, CLOSER, and this Kickstarter campaign on Facebook, Twitter, and your blogs. If YOU are into my kind of music, chances are your friends are, too, right?
Here, I want to make it as easy as possible to share my campaign.
- Sample Facebook post: I'm a proud backer of Katie Todd's new album, CLOSER, and you can be, too. And every time she raises $500, someone posts an embarrassing picture of her. So there's that. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/katietodd/katie-todd-closer-a-new-album

Thanks for helping me building this Katie audience/army. Remember, if we don't reach our goal, we don't get to send you your album, so let's get up and over that $12k goal!
