How Much You Mean To Us
Today it became official: we reached and surpassed our Kickstarter goal of raising $800 to help with the recording of our new album! Many thanks goes to the amazing people who donated to our project:
Lance, harcenea, Elisa, Maxine, Rick, John, Kasi, Beth, Dink, Edward, Kassy, Melissa, Jennifer, Justin, Jessica, Jacob, Amy, Jeremy, Chris, Nilam, Emily, and Annette.... thank you so, so much.
To give you an idea of how much this helps us, let's look at the stats:
- Recording can cost $35-$50 per hour.
- We want our album to have 10-13 songs. That's a lot of hours recording, mixing, and mastering!
- By the time we record, we will have played about 18 shows. We have collected barely $1400 from these shows. That's an very small average of $77 per show.
- Pressing a CD (packaging, artwork, etc) is costly as well. 300 copies cost nearly $700.
- The total project, by our estimates, will cost us $3000 minimum.
Our very first Kickstarter project last year also raised about $800. So with your help, about $1600 will be taken off of our total cost. You paid for about half of the cost!
It is expensive to make an album these days, but we hope (actually, we know) our recorded music will take us places and give us opportunities for better paying gigs and give us a chance to be self-funded.
