Help Morgan Manifacier and his band record their second full length album at Hyde Street Studio C, in San Francisco, CA.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read these lines, and for showing interest in our project.
For those of you who do not know me, my name is Morgan Manifacier. I was born and raised in the south of France, but I moved to the Bay Area about four years ago, and boy, what a trip it's been. I've met some of the most incredible and inspiring people, and they have all had a tremendous impact in my life.
For the past few months, I've been performing with two fantastic musicians, Sarah Hawley-Snow, and Matthew Camgros. We're now completely ready to go into studio to record this new album, and we want to get it into your hands and ears! This only thing holding us back is, as you guessed, money.
Here is how your pledges will help us:
6 days in the studio x $500 = $3,000
5 days of mixing x $500 = $2,500
Mastering = $1,000
Manufacturing CDs = $1,000
Total = $7,500
All additional funds will go towards a proper Press Release campaign, to promote the record when it's out. The cost of a PR campaign for 3 months, is about $1,500!
Thank you again, for believing in this project, and for being a part of it.
Morgan, Sarah & Matt.
Mes amis Français,
Je vous annonce qu'un nouvel album est actuellement en préparation, avec la participation de mes musiciens, Sarah Hawley-Snow et Matthew Camgros. La nouveauté cette fois-ci est que vous pouvez vous impliquer "concrètement" dans le projet, en participant au futur enregistrement en studio.
Notre ambition est d'avoir accès au studio Hyde Street Studio C à San Francisco. Enregistrer en studio nous permettra enfin de pouvoir enregistrer Matt a la batterie et Sarah au violoncelle! De plus, nous aurons la chance d'enregistrer avec Scott McDowell (Geographer, Sean Hayes...), ingénieur du son à San Francisco.
Qu'est ce que Kickstarter?
Comme son nom l'indique, il s'agit de donner un "élan" pour nous aider à démarrer le projet, car sans public, nous ne pouvons tenir dans la durée, et sans moyens financiers, il nous sera impossible d'envisager la production dans le studio.
Votre engagement et votre participation se déroulent ainsi:
- Vous réservez votre album avant même sa création, ce qui nous permettra alors d'engager la production en studio.
- Vous nous réglez votre achat via Amazon, et vous recevez une preuve de votre avance, qui sera pour nous un soutien réel: Cet album est pour nous un défi c'est pourquoi les produits que nous vous proposons sont la preuve matérielle de votre participation au projet.
Sur votre droite, vous pouvez trouver les différentes formules qui peuvent nous aider a financer le projet. Nous vous invitons a choisir quelle formule correspond le mieux à vos attentes!
Nous espérons que vous serez nombreux a vous impliquer, et nous vous remercions pour votre soutien, et votre confiance.
Morgan, Sarah, et Matt.

The challenge will be to record the whole album within 6 days. Being aware of this has motivated us to get prepared ahead of time, and we now feel ready to go into studio.
