Hi! We're Railbird, an independent band looking to raise funds to promote the release of our new music video and single, Jump Ship!
Hello! Thanks for checking out our kickstarter project!
Our goal is to release our new single, Jump Ship (by SKP and Ben Lazar Davis) this June and follow that release with a music video that we are in the process of making. A little more than half the money we raise will go toward hiring a media company to get the track and the video out there to blogs and webzines. 1,300 will cover one month of promotion. We'd also like to cover the costs of making the music video (or at the very minimum feed the crew who are donating their time!) Margaret Lewis (director and producer) has estimated 350 will cover basic costs. 250 will go toward mixing and mastering the track and 100 will get us digital download cards. We also have a new t-shirt design by Elizabeth Pedinotti that is so awesome it'd be a shame not to get them made. It'll cost 500 to get them done right by American Apparel (sweatshop free!) So that's 2,500! (Actually, to really reach our goal of 2,500 we need to raise a bit more as Amazon takes 5.0% + $0.05 for all transactions and we will also be charged an additional fee by Kickstarter per transaction up to 5%)
Ideally we'd love to promote for longer and maybe even be able to do a regional college/indie radio campaign (a little over 1000.) Anything we can raise over 2,500 we will put toward that goal and all future projects for Railbird, including new recordings to be made this summer, and gas to get us on the road. We are also almost sold out of our album No One (released last year) and we'd love to be able to afford to get more physical copies made!
Thank you for helping us continue to make and bring you new music. With your support our music is propelled and we are so appreciative of anything you can contribute! Much love, RAILBIRD
