Hello World!

Peace to everyone out there. I go by the name of A-1, I'm an independent hip hop artist from San Francisco. For the past 3 years I have been writing, recording and giving away my music for free - and now I have a proposal for you. I want to trade you a hand printed, high quality American Apparel t- shirt, tank top or a crewneck sweatshirt in exchange for an opportunity for us to go on tour.

How You Can Help Me Get on the Road!

After 3 years of hard work, we finally have scraped together enough resources to put together our first tour.  Since this will be our first tour a lot of the gigs we play will provide little or no pay. But as long as we have enough merchandise to sell on tour.. we can make just enough money to pay for food, lodging, and gas to get to the next venue. So we've been hard at work coming up with designs for items, researching prices and materials so we can provide the best quality clothing and merchandise for our fans. So we've come up with 3 Thurl designs, professionally screen printed onto top quality American Apparel T-shirts, Tank-tops, and Crew Necks in Women and Mens fashions, in multiple color ways and ALL sizes. You can see all of our styles and other reward itemes HERE:

Pledge for your very own THURL T-Shirt, Tank Top or Crew Neck Sweatshirt!

If you pledge to this kick starter for the price of one or more of our Thurl merch items, not only will we hand print and package the items for you.. we'll ship them to your door completely free, it's all included in the original price. If we meet our goal of 3000 dollars, we'll have the money to print up enough merch to take on the road with us. Now the way kickstarter works is it's an all or nothing deal, which means that if we don't meet our 3000 dollar goal, we get nothing. If we exceed 3000 dollars, any extra money we get will go into paying for professional mixing, mastering, PR and all that good stuff. Either way, we’re going to keep providing you all with free, good quality music for you to jam to no matter what because, money or no money, I believe good art is worth sharing. Anyways thanks again, this is your boy A-1 signing off. Remember to Think, Hustle, Understand and Really Live. Thurl.”
