Pretty Broken Things is recording our first full length album and we cannot wait to share it with you! Be a part of making it happen!

Kevin Alan Matley is a great engineer and a fantastic producer with a solid ear and excellent taste. We could not be more happy that he is producing our first full length Album. We are recording at B50 studio, which is a big beautiful space in Ballard. And, oh the acoustics!! We love being there. The bulk of the funds we are raising will go to paying Kevin for producing,engineering and mixing the album. After that we have the cost of mastering and publishing/production. Realistically the whole project cost will exceed our kickstarter "goal". We are hoping to exceed our goal by at least $2,000 but have officially listed it as lower because of Kickstarter's all-or-nothing policy. No matter how many people pledge, if we do not reach our official goal of $10,000 we will not receive any of the money (and in that case, no one will be charged for their pledges). We are being modest in our goal and counting on YOU, our friends and fans, to be generous in your support! Whether it is simply pre-buying your copy of the record or opting for any number of our other fun incentives, we are deeply grateful for your contribution! And we will be counting on you to spread the word too! We appreciate all of the encouragement and interest that pushed us into the studio and we can't wait to get this album into your hands, and more importantly your ears!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

If we do not reach our full Kickstarter goal of $10,000 we will not receive any of the funds pledged and will not be able to fund the album. This would obviously be a huge setback for the project and send us back to the drawing board.

There are still going to be challenges even if we do reach our goal. As we said, the costs of this project will exceed what we are even asking for, and as with any project or amazing undertaking, there are certain to be surprises around the corner that we will need to respond to. That said, we intend to do our VERY BEST to deliver the best possible album we can, something we are beyond proud to stamp our names on, while also using our resources carefully and wisely.
