Hello everyone, we are Contra! We're an Instrumental band from Annapolis, Maryland. We've been playing in the region for a little over 4 years and are very proud to be a part of this areas music scene. Unfortunately, it's very hard to earn the kind of money it takes to record a professional album at any level. That's why we are partnering with Kickstarter.com in hopes that you would like to be a part of our creative endeavors.
To make a long story short, we're asking you; our friends, families, and supporters, to make a short term investment in our project. Over the last two years we have been working our butts off playing around town and have earned a portion of our album costs, but not quite enough to fully fund it. We'll need your assistance to make this album a reality!
All contributions to the album are essentially "pay-it-forward" and correlate with a certain reward of equal value. However, if we do not raise the full $2,000 we're after by the set date we will receive none of your contributions, you will not be charged, and we will be unable to give you your reward. Not to mention our hearts will be broken...
Every cent that is contributed will go directly toward our project and will never see the lint of our empty pockets. The costs of an album include artwork, recording time, mixing, mastering, and production. None of which are cheap by any means. If our goal is met, we will be releasing our new album, Blue Planet Chronicles, in June of 2012.
Thank you everyone for your continued support, we love you!
