We are Mel Bryant & the Mercy Makers, and we have a dream of makin' people feel things, real things, with our hard hittin', soul givin' indie rock music. We all work full time in addition to working on our music and performing regularly in our little town of Nashville, but making an album costs a considerable amount more than what we can afford right now. That's where you come in!
When a band has a label to back them up, the label can pay for stuff like recording, mixing, mastering, and PR to get the music out into channels that introduce it to potential new fans and bigger booking opportunities.
We are an independent band, which means that we do (and fund) all that stuff ourselves, but now, thanks to kickstarter, you all have a chance to come be a part of the action, to become a part of the team and get a behind the scenes look at how an independent band can break out into the mainstream.
With your support, we have faith that this music can reach millions, but all we're asking of you is to pre-order our album so that we can have the funds up-front to help our album (and our band) create more opportunities to play more shows and maybe even quit our day jobs!
In return for your immense generosity, you'll receive exclusive early access to all of our upcoming content (singles, music videos, etc) as well as an instant download of my last kickstarter's fruitful efforts, the solo album 'High Priestess'. If you really want to go above and beyond, your generosity will be rewarded with a big ol' name drop in the album credits! HECK yeah!
If you like our music, or like us as people, please preorder our album to help us succeed, and in return we will love you forever and ever.
Thanks for stickin with us this far!
