We have spent the last six months making a record and need your help to release it!
We are incredibly thankful and blessed by the overwhelming support that you have all shown thus far! We now have enough funds to cover cd duplication and a portion of the promotion for our soon-to-be-released EP! Thank you all so very much!
As we said in the original project description: any money raised above the initial $1,500 goal will go toward heavier promotion. This is absolutely still the case - 100% of the funds that we raise will go toward getting our music to as many ears as possible.
Since starting this project, an amazing (and expensive) opportunity has come before us that we are incredibly excited to share with you! We've been offered an amazing chance to get our music on tv shows on networks like MTV and Discovery. This would effectively put Ontario on the map, and you can (and already have) played an enormous part.
We'll be posting a new video soon to explain the details of this opportunity, and how you can help!
For now: Thank you all so very much!
My name is Richie Rich (bottom left in the Brady Bunch photo below) and I play guitar and sing in the Detroit indie rock band called Ontario. We have been working for some time on our first record, and the recording process is finally complete! (preview it here)
Although we are a relatively new band, we've been playing together in almost every possible combination for the past ten years. This experience has produced a chemistry that is undoubtedly evident in our music. We are very proud of this album, and want nothing more than to share it with as many ears as possible!
Pledging to support this project will help us complete the final stages of the album-making process, including duplication and promotion. We have set an initial goal of $1,500 that would cover duplication and limited promotion. Any money raised above this goal will go toward heavier promotion.
We believe that this record speaks for itself and desperately need your help!
Thank you for supporting our music,
Justin Thiede Drew Stoutenburg
