My music treads firmly on the themes of hope, courage, and living life with the biggest she-balls humanly possible. I would never suggest you live life to its fullest if I weren’t doing exactly that with my own few minutes.

Please help me take this step, recording a three-song demo with a Grammy award winning producer and two stellar NYC musicians, by donating $3, or $20, or $50 - any amount you are willing to offer.

Thank you, Danny Pilpe, for this beautiful video, and thank you, readers all, for your time, donations, and encouragement. Please forward this page to your friends!

Carpe diem,
Kathrine Becker

I'm using KickStarter to raise only a portion of the Bare Minimum budget; it's one piece of a bigger pie. I am contributing $3000, one ardent fan is contributing $500, and I'm asking my friends, family, fans, and any philanthropic fellows to help me with the last $3000. (The video quotes $2500, however the figures changed slightly after the video was shot.) This covers the cost of the musicians, the studio, the producer, the engineer, duplication and the album cover artwork.

(Thank you, Justin Ross, for your beautiful pie chart! She-balls!)
