People Matter. Your Story Is Important. Join the Circle.
Three months ago we released our first EP, "To You and Yours." Since then, we have traveled across the country, from Iowa to San Diego, to Atlanta and Boston, promoting our music and name, playing acoustic shows, and trying to establish ourselves in this competitive industry. The support we have received in three short months has been outstanding, and the people we have met have been beyond amazing. Thank you to anyone who has bought our CD or merchandise, found us on social media, given us a place to stay, or all of the above.
Later this month we are returning to the studio to record our sophomore EP with producer Kevin Gates. This album is already partially funded from CD sales, living room shows, and our personal jobs outside of music. We are completely on our own financially and have no record label or outside investors, but we have managed to run this band as efficiently as possible to ensure our financial viability moving forward. We never get hotel rooms (we are either sheltered by kind individuals or sleep in our Honda Civic), we make our own food instead of going out to eat, and we don't spend money on drugs or alcohol. Every dollar given to this band is treated with care and is used as efficiently as possible to ensure our ability to be on the road, write and record music, and hopefully make friendships with as many people as possible.
This is why our Kickstarter has a goal of only $1. Our second EP is absolutely going to be recorded and released, and we will be on the road playing it for people within the coming year. We are not begging for money. We merely want to provide unique and fun opportunities for those who wish to have a part in the making of this album. This is an attempt to give our new friends and fans that opportunity in a way that is heartfelt and meaningful.
The rewards we have listed have been crafted with thought and care, and we hope you enjoy them. After all, since we know the album will be pressed, we have no incentive to make absorbent amounts of money off our fans; rather, we simply wish to include you in this project and provide what we hope are rewards you will enjoy. Most importantly, if you have ANY suggestions or other ideas, PLEASE do not be afraid to contact us (KickstartJocelyn@Gmail.com). We are certainly open to customizing packages to suit your desires.
If you give:
**Packages include all previous rewards listed for lower dollar amounts**
$1 - A handwritten letter, mailed to you or anyone you would like.
$5 - A phone call / skype call
$10 - An exclusive look at potential lyrics / album artwork / album titles / song titles
$20 - A signed copy of the album, mailed to you before the public release date
$30 - Personalized video with an acoustic performance, playing one of our songs.
$40 - One hour skype date, and/or a link to an exclusive live stream from the studio (if donated before 8/28/12)
$50 - Your name included in the Thank You section of the album.
$51+ - Our love and adoration, and we will do our best to meet any request you have, just email KickstartJocelyn@gmail.com with any ideas you have.
Because we have done well this summer and run this band like a business, our sophomore EP is already mostly funded. This kickstarter is more about getting people involved in the making of the album and less about making money off the people we care about.
Absolutely! If you have any questions, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org first and we'll let you know how possible/likely your idea is. We want nothing more than to reward people the way they want to be rewarded for being so generous.
You can either message us through kickstarter, or email us at KickstartJocelyn@gmail.com. If you don't, we will message everyone at the end of the pledge period and collect that information. Remember, if you want your letter sent to someone else, just let us know :)
