Nick Cappelletti to record new album Salamander Lounge!!

$10,305

121

Salamander Lounge is a concept album about a mysterious and surreal lounge where it's characters and ambience come to life nightly for an evening of delightful adventure. The record is a combination of lounge, jazz, latin and rock music that plays like a story from beginning to end. 

Please help support!! We need to reach our goal or no money or items are exchanged. If we go over 9,000 we will use the additional funds for better production and live performances. 

All shipping costs are included in rewards EXCEPT for pledges outside the US. If you are outside the US please add $5-$15 depending on the item. I'll trust you guys on this one. 

NOTE: In the video I mention as one of the rewards to breed salamanders but cannot offer this reward in writing due to restrictions on live animals. If you would like to talk about this option please contact me directly. 

Thanks so much everyone!!
