Hello, I’m Laura Mae Socks.  Thanks for coming here and thinking about supporting my debut album.  I’ve spent the last 5 years touring with my band The Baked Goods, playing old country songs, all across the U.S. and somewhere along the way I started doing something that had seemed utterly elusive to me before; picking up my pen and guitar and writing down my story.  This is a record of original songs about my recent life experiences, my friends and my history that I can't wait to share with you all.  This will be my first record and I’m very excited to make it available to be played on your smartphones, computers, CD players and turntables.

These are the amazing musicians who contributed to the sound of this record: Jon Bertrand,  Danny Tait, Matty Meyer, Miss Tess, Asa Brosius , Larissa Chace Smith, Candy Craig, Kelli Jones-Savoy, John R. Miller & Matt Metz, and last but not least Leo Grassl.

The record was recorded and mixed over the last three years by Jon Bertrand, Brian Russ and myself.  The record is totally finished and has been mastered by Michael Nau, and now it's ready to be pressed and that's where we need you. By pre-ordering a signed and personalized limited edition (in the case of Vinyl) copy of the record or maybe purchasing another one of our rewards you’ll enable us to pay to have physical real-life copies of the record we’ve worked so hard on.

Our plan is to send the record to be pressed immediately after the Kickstarter.

I'm passionate and committed to making this happen.  I’ve put years of work into writing the songs, recording them, mixing, and now we just need your help completing this last step. All the money I raise will go directly into having the record pressed and packaged. I'm asking for the minimum amount to get the physical copies into your hands.

pressed records:  $5,000.00

kickstarter fees:  $480.00

postage:  $550.00

Thank you for your help, and I hope you enjoy our first album!

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter, itself, is a risk. It works like this: I am asking for $6,000 and I have 30 days to earn this amount. If at the end of 30 days I have reached my goal, Kickstarter will take 8% percent of my earnings, leaving me with $5,520. If I do not reach my goal at the end of 30 days, ***YOUR BANK ACCOUNT WILL NOT BE CHARGED, and I WILL RECEIVE NO FUNDING***
