We're The Zinc Kings; this is our 3rd Kickstarter project. We firmly believe that music is community activity and have been overwhelmed by how the Kickstarter community has supported us. As with most of our projects, we've finished recording our album well under budget with the help of great friends. Now, we need to manufacture the CDs and need your help. We've been lucky to have Michael Ananian finish our artwork, and this is your chance to own some of his work. The painting at the start of the project will be our album cover, and we've included a photograph of one of the mock-ups available as a reward. The album is filled with great tunes and songs from the North Carolina Piedmont, mixed, recorded and produced by the wonderful Tony Artimisi. We're excited and hope you are too. If you're as excited as we are, please consider supporting this Kickstarter project.

 We've also included two tracks from the upcoming album just to give you a taste of the whole album. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The album is recorded. The artwork is finished. The greatest risk is that it takes longer than expected. That's it... no other risks. All of our previous kickstarters have been completed ahead of schedule so we foresee no other problems.

    Original Artwork and "Piedmont"

    Artist Michael Ananian did an amazing job of doing mockups for our album cover. Michael is a well respected artist currently specializing in art from the North Carolina Piedmont. Michael rarely, rarely sells his work not because of demand, simply because he's protective of his art. Michael has graciously agreed to let us offer his mock ups as rewards. This is your chance to see own some of his work with a Zinc Kings theme. As you place your pledge we'll send you digital copies of the artwork so you can chose which one you want. First come first serve!

    House Concert

    This is one we always offer and a great deal. Give us $300 which is well.. well.. below our going rate and we'll play for you at an event of your choosing. There are certain stipulations of course, we'd like to stay with 120 miles, we'd need to make sure dates work but in general we're open to ideas. Heck, we'll bring the PA system and a six pack of adult beverage if you want to build a party around it.
