Minneapolis based eclectic pop group WALKER KONG needs your help completing their exciting new album PHAZES of LIGHT. Read more
This project was successfully funded on August 20, 2011.
About this project
WALKER KONG is a Minneapolis based musical group that formed in 1998 with a desire to make a connection through the pursuit of creativity and music. In the process we have recorded and released three acclaimed full length records and now we’re happy to announce that we are very close to completing our fourth studio album entitled PHAZES OF LIGHT.
About the ProjectThe recording for "Phazes" is 100% complete but we will need additional funds for mixing and mastering the album. This time around we are working with veteran Nashville studio whiz Mark Nevers (Elvis Costello, Candi Stanton, Andrew Bird, Lambchop, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Silver Jews) who has produced, recorded and mixed some of our favorite sounding records of the last decade.
We're so excited to have this opportunity but in order to do it right it requires some additional monetary support. Our goal is $1,850.00 but if we reach it please keep pledging. Every dollar affords us more time and a higher quality end result. Remember, if the goal is not reached the project is not funded.
How it Works
Kickstarter is a fundraising platform used to connect people working on creative projects with people who are interested in offering monetary support to help with the completion of that particular project. One of the amazing things about Kickstarter is that everyone who pledges will receive a unique gift from us (see the column to the right) for their wonderful generosity and support. The tricky thing is that if the fundraising goal is not reached by the last day of the campaign, none of the pledges are collected and the project will not be funded.
