CAN WE REACH $7,500?
We have hit our first goal!
However, we aren't stopping there. A great album deserves great treatment and there are still higher goals we can achieve! For each goal achieved, we're unlocking a new reward for those that have already contributed. Check below to see what we hope to accomplish from here as well as what new rewards will become available!
INITIAL GOAL: $5,000
We’ll make an entire album with the quality of our current radio single, INHALE / EXHALE! This includes: booking a great studio, mixing and editing by Jeoff Harris, and mastering by Dominic Maita.
UNLOCKED: ALBUM WILL BE MADE!
FLEX GOAL ONE: $7,500
Time, care, and ultimate quality… These funds will be used solely on bringing in a producer, and being able to use some state of the art microphones and equipment in our recording process. The amazing thing about this is with this step we can absolutely produce a product that will make ears perk up and bring deep warmth to your soul when you hear it. This step really is a game changer for the project.
UNLOCKABLE: additional shirt - same design or one we already have for you or perhaps a friend. For $50 backers and above!
FLEX GOAL TWO: $10,000
We need a music promotion firm to get our CD heard on the radio, place stories in blogs and papers, and to help us share “Photovoltaic” with a much larger audience. A proper budget with PR firm can make the difference of being a local success or a national success. This is a huge step in our career!
UNLOCKABLE: Custom photobook of Hydrogen Skyline with rare photos of the band at live shows and during photo shoots, album art, and detailed histories from the inception of HS in 2011. For $100 backers and above!
FLEX GOAL THREE: $12,000
We want to make a full-blown MUSIC VIDEO for our next single! It will cost about $2,500 to make a themed video for one of our songs – this would really be a big help guiding our career further as many artists careers are shot forward through YouTube, Vimeo, and other video hosting sites!
FLEX GOAL FOUR: $15,000
We want to put this record out on vinyl! It will be our first musical project to be on vinyl, and we’d love to share that moment with you! As you know, vinyl records are making a major comeback for music lovers around the world and we would love to add this project to that musical collective. Once this goal is reached, all our contributors in the $100 and above brackets will have a vinyl record put into order for them and shipped when completed!
UNLOCKABLE: Vinyl Record added to all contributors who pledge $100 or more!
Everything helps. This job is not easy. The business is unforgiving, and it takes a LOT to be successful. Please join us on this journey! We are so grateful for your support!
We love music. We love what music means to the human mind, heart and soul. We love how music conveys thoughts, emotions, stories, history, culture, and art – from the simplest chord to the most complex symphony. We love that music can inspire deeper thinking, that it can motivate action, that it can make a good movie fantastic, and smooth out a rough day.
Music enhances lives every day. Music has enhanced our lives in this band. And in a sense that is what this project is about. Enhancing lives through our music and paying it forward for all the music that has enhanced our own lives over the years.
So, this project is fairly simple at its most basic level. We have a dream to make music that enhances lives each and every day. We have written some of our best songs in the history of this band recently, and we believe these are the songs in which to build the next level of our career. Now it’s a matter of getting these songs out to the world in every way possible! Check out everything you can on the page to see how you can create a connection through music. Make a pledge and let’s bring this project out into the world!
WHY RAISE FUNDS VIA KICKSTARTER?
We don't make music to make money, we make money to make more music. Our ultimate goal is to be the best musicians/band that we can possibly be. Money buys the time to be able to create and make music to share with others full time. In music industry terms, this is similar to what some would call a publishing deal. Only we’re signing a publishing deal with YOU, our fans and supporters!
Risks and challenges
With all projects come challenges and a lot of times there are unavoidable setbacks. The most likely setback would be in the form of time - which entails when we can get the album 100% complete and into your hands. Our focus is to make sure any setbacks are very minor, and utilize our five years of experience in this band to minimize risk. We'll accomplish this by keeping you as the backer well informed of progress, keeping to a very strict timeline with our producer, and by ensuring all our products are completed within the expected time frame.
With your help, we can accomplish the rest of these things! And, at the end of the process, hopefully you'll find something you can love and value waiting for you! A note, a song, a show-- whatever it might be!
We love these songs as much as anyone can love anything, and we hope in some fashion these songs will enhance your life when they get to your ears!
