About

Hi, I'm Brooke Annibale. 

I'm making a new record. It's almost finished and I'd like you to be a part of it!

OK WOW. We reached the goal and then some. BUT THERE'S MORE. I've got special bonus rewards that everyone will get, if we keep going:

IF WE REACH $10,000 I’ll write and home demo a brand new song, that everyone who’s backed the project will receive, exclusively. (CHECK. DONE. WE DID IT. I'LL START WRITING.)

IF WE REACH $15,000 I’ll also record a 3 song EP of acoustic versions of my songs, new or old. You get to vote on which songs I record.

IF WE REACH $20,000 I’ll ALSO record a 3 song EP of cover songs. You get to vote on which cover songs I record, from a list I’ll provide.

I've even got a few more incentives in mind if somehow we surpass those goals (which would be INSANE AND ALSO AWESOME). 

All the fun details below!

Since the release of my 2015 record, The Simple Fear, I’ve been quite busy. I started focusing on writing this record in the fall of 2016. I sat down with the song ideas that I’d had over the last year and found new ideas hiding out somewhere in my heart and mind. I always think that no more songs will exist in me, but somehow they do. I’m grateful for that. I’ve always said that making music is my passion in life, and there’s nothing better than working really hard on little pieces of songs and watching them turn into an entire record that’s ready to share.

RECORDING: 

SAM KASSIRER // GREAT NORTH SOUND SOCIETY

I met producer Sam Kassirer in the fall of 2016, and we really hit it off. I’d been a fan of Sam for a while mostly via his work with Josh Ritter and Lake Street Dive (to name a few). We got together to work on two songs in the winter of 2017. It went really well and we decided to make an entire record together. Throughout the summer of 2017 we worked on 9 more songs at his remote studio, Great North Sound Society, in Parsonsfield, Maine. We invited some great musicians (and Sam's dog Lucy) to join us. After a lot of hard work (and a lot of fun times) we ended up with a full length record of 11 songs and it’s ALMOST ready to release.

INVESTMENT + NEED

I've already invested some of (ok, I'll be honest MOST of) my personal savings into making this record, and I could use your help to take it over the finish line. As some of you may know, this is not my first record or my first crowdfunded project. The challenges of making a record come with the territory. For me, the biggest reward and the energy that keeps me inspired comes from playing my songs for you. With this next record I hope to tour more extensively (across the USA and beyond) and share it with as many new ears as I can reach. 

My goal is set at $7,500, which helps cover my basic remaining costs. It's just enough to get the record finished. Your support will help fund: final producer fees, mixing, mastering, manufacturing costs, and promotional costs.

BUT IF WE REACH THAT GOAL... THERE'S MORE. If we're able to reach $7.5k and keep going I've got special bonus rewards that everyone will get. 

IF WE REACH $10,000 I’ll write and home demo a brand new song, that everyone who’s backed the project will receive, exclusively.

IF WE REACH $15,000 I’ll also record a 3 song EP of acoustic versions of my songs, new or old. You get to vote on which songs I record.

IF WE REACH $20,000 I’ll ALSO record a 3 song EP of cover songs. You get to vote on which cover songs I record, from a list I’ll provide.

I've even got a few more incentives in mind if somehow we surpass those goals (which would be INSANE AND ALSO AWESOME).

REWARDS! 

PACKS NAMED AFTER SONGS ON THE RECORD

I wanted to have fun with this Kickstarter campaign (and hopefully you will too), so I named some of the rewards packages after songs on the record! "Hold On" "Glow" "Point of View" "Hold to the Light", etc... these are all names of new songs appearing on the new record. Here are some of the items I’m really excited about in the packages…

  • Hollowood Music Listening Party - I’ll play the record, before it's released, at a special listening party at my family’s music store in my hometown, Pittsburgh, PA! (More details in the “family pack” to the right -->)
  • The Home Demos - I worked extra hard recording demos at home before stepping into the studio, and you can get those in many of the rewards packs.
  • Mini Polaroid on Framable paper: You've probably noticed a lot of the photos on this page are pictures of polaroids. I took most of these photos, Sam and the musicians took some too! I'll attach these to some nice paper and write a lyric, caption or journal entry. (More info in the "Point of View" Pack)
  • Album Influences Spotify Playlist - Throughout the recording process, I made playlists that inspired and influenced the making of my record. Everyone who backs the project will get access to a Spotify playlist of album influences along with a guide to exactly what it was about each song inspired me.
  • Glow T-Shirt - New Design inspired by my new song "Glow" - a song that is so much fun, I decided to throw glow sticks into that package. 
  • Vinyl! - I'm so excited to offer vinyl this time around!
  • VHS Video Tape - 4 live solo electric studio performances of brand new songs on a VHS tape (yes, i'm serious, VHS) (Only 4 of these available, More info in the Throwback pack!)
  • Private Virtual Concerts - I'll play you and your friends/family a private Skype concert where you pick the songs! Only 10 of these available
  • House Concerts - I'll come to your house or office and play a show for you and your friends/family! (local and national, US only, more details in house concert packs to the right -->)

Those are just a few of the things I'm really excited to offer as rewards for your generosity in supporting this project. I'm also really excited to share bonus content like... behind the scenes video clips, pictures, song snippets and more to all of you who back the project. Keep scrolling because ALL of the rewards are listed to the right!

Risks and challenges

I'm setting my goal at the bare minimum that I need to be able to cover my most basic costs.

There is always the chance of production delays, but no one wants that, especially not me. I'll keep everyone updated throughout the process.

The biggest risk we're taking is not meeting the goal. If that goal isn't met, none of the pledges will be collected and none of the rewards will be distributed. Sooo, let's just meet the goal, ok!?
