Girlfriends and gentlemen, I present to you: Half About Being a Woman, my third full length record. I am so excited to be announcing our Kickstarter campaign, I could just freak for a week. I was so looking forward to doing another Kickstarter campaign for this new record because of the overwhelming response from our last one and how much fun it was to connect with you guys. You guys are it! You guys are why we can do what we do. For five years we’ve been sleeping on your floors, singing in your living rooms, singing to all of your faces at our shows, and we are so indebted to you all for your loyal generosity; It bowls us over every time we think about it. So I wanted to continue on the fan-funded route because I think what we have between us is pretty special. You’re my boo, boo. I’m not ready to leave you. I want to commit! (slowly gets down on one knee…)
Baby, for five years you’ve made us the happiest band in the world. Your smiles light up our life and make our hearts sing (and play bass and play drums). I can’t imagine a world without you. With your donations, we will be able to make videos, print the record and promote it to get the music to an even wider audience. Your support and donations are the sole reasons why our band can stay independent and debt free. We are promising to only give you incentives that will be fun and fulfilling; incentives like a big pre-release party where we’ll have ridiculous surprises for you and we’ll hang out and celebrate; Incentives like hosting a girl’s night for you and your friends because you and your friends are so fun! And I want to talk about your love life with you! And paint your nails!; Incentives like a special t-shirt that is something that only you and I would understand, like our little inside jokes we have. In addition, this will be the first place where you’ll not only get the album a couple weeks before it’s release, but immediately you can have the new single, even without donating anything. Because we want you to have it. It’s the least we can do.
Half About Being a Woman is a record about self-acceptance and going back to the roots of ‘feel-good’ music. I wanted to find my way back to the reason why I started playing music in the first place and, I have to say, I have never had so much fun writing, recording, and performing music as I have with these new songs. It’s because all of you that I could make this record. Your unwavering support has allowed me to write freely and to be myself and I can’t tell you how fortunate I feel to find myself in such a supportive community. This record is so important to me and I can’t wait to share it with you all: the people that absolutely made it possible. So we present unto you our Kickstarter campaign and a brand new single that you can only find here and, if you so choose, you can have it for free. Because it’s the least I can do for everything you’ve done for me.
So what do you say? (still down on one knee…)
Thank you for taking the time to visit my kickstarter and helping me get my record out into the world. We'll see you at First Ave on Sep 27th with Solid Gold or in a city near you as we embark on our album release tour.
