Hello everyone! First off, Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this page! We are excited to be a part of this site!
We are The Paper Melody, often described as "Tim Burton's rock band",from Yuba City, CA and music is our lives! Our songs are not just music. They are meaningful stories fueled by characters and imagery. Our goal is not for you to hear our music, but to Experience it. We wish nothing more than to inspire creativity and promote use of the imagination, an art that many have lost.
We have TONS of really awesome stuff coming up for you guys! So much so that we can't afford it on our own :(. Here's a breakdown so you guys can see where the money goes:
1. New EP! this is the main thing we will be using this money for. The recordings are going to be upwards of $3,000. That's just recording. After Mastering, duplication, and promoting we're looking at another $1,000. That's a ton of money, we know, but that's the way it is. Shocking, huh?
2. New Music Videos! If you've ever heard of us, you've most likely seen/heard of our 2 music videos for our songs "Incandescent" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LB31U0Oq0iY&feature=related) and "The Nightmare Academy". (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Tq56L0yudU). We are planning on shooting two, that's right, TWO more music videos Later 2011! We have to pay the director, crew, catering, props, and all kind of little expenses like that. We're going to need another $1,000 + to cover this.
3. Touring and Merchandise! One of our most favorite things is getting on the road and coming to YOU! we've toured a few times, but all on the west coast. We are DYING to get ourselves over to the East Coast. We spend a lot of money in Gas from all the traveling we do, so any money we have left will help go towards gas and Merchandise to sell on these tours.
You can't afford to help? That's not a problem at all! another way you can help us with no cost to you at all is help us promote this campaign! Our reach only extends to you, you can help us extend it further!
There aren't enough words in any language to express our gratitude for all of your help and support on our KickStarter campaign! This site is here to help us musicians and artist's dreams come true. Without YOU, we would be nothing! We can't wait to start working on all of our exciting upcoming projects! And more than that, we can't wait to share them with you!
With all the love we possess,
- Jill, Anthony, and Dan of TPM
