We are The Belle Jar, a folk rock band out of Denver, Colorado, and we need your support to fund our upcoming album, Union Station. We will use the money primarily to buy recording time at a local studio, but we’re not just asking for your money – you get something too (you can think of it as a short-term investment). You make a pledge for whatever item or items sound best to you, then, this spring, we’ll deliver on those items.

The thing is, this is an all or nothing project. If we don’t reach our fundraising goal, we don’t get any of the money. So, please help us spread the word to make sure we get there. Like this page, tweet it, post the link on Facebook, email the link to your rich uncle. 

The Belle Jar has been around for two years, and we’ve had our current lineup of musicians for over a year. This will be the first album that we’ve written and recorded together. We’re really excited to get in the studio to get to work on this for you, so please pitch in what you can!

The Belle Jar is:
Ryan James - vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele
Matthew Vermillion - bass guitar, vocals
JJ Chamberlain - drums
Courtney Wilson - accordion, piano, violin, vocals
Emily Rose Lewis - violin, vocals
Andrew Rex - guitar

Risks and challenges

We've already secured studio time and have a plan for the pressing of the album, so once the project is funded, we'll be off to the races.
