Recording artist Marissa Nadler is recording a new album and needs your help.
Update (November 9, 2010): THE CAMPAIGN IS STILL ONGOING! Because the response has been so warm and amazing Marissa is hoping that people continue to spread the word about this project. $11,000 was the minimum goal which would cover the recording costs alone. She hopes to raise as much as she can so that the vinyl, posters, shirts, etc. are of the best possible quality! Thank You All!
Marissa Nadler needs your help to record her new full length record.
Hard at work since the release of Little Hells, Marissa has been writing songs and touring extensively, and she is now ready to share her work with you.
Nadler is an independent artist who has a distinct creative vision for her new record. Without the assistance of a record label to help fund the recording of her project Marissa would like this album to be supported by her fans and to stay completely true to her artistic vision. In order to maintain the sonic quality of her output she wants to record in a professional studio. Having toured for the better part of the decade she knows that it is truly the listeners and fellow artists who help keep true music alive and well in this world. She wants to give you the best record she can make and to deliver the strongest project of her career.
The money needed is to pay for studio time at Miner Street studios in Philadelphia. It will pay for the recording of the record, as well as compensating the musicians that will play on the record, and finally the mixing and mastering of the record. The recording dates are set for 15 days in January of 2011, and she truly needs your help. Working a series of odd jobs and struggling to make ends meet, she has no other way to get into a studio, and sincerely wants to continue making records.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
