April 2nd Update ~ 30K...and beyond!

Thanks to everyone who has donated to the Kerosene Halo Kickstarter thus far -- we reached our goal of 30k and we owe it all to YOU! There is still time left to pledge and a lot of cool rewards remain as we push towards 40k and beyond. Everything comes to a close on Kickstarter this coming Easter Sunday, at 12PM central time. Although 30k seems like a lot of money, it is only the bare minimum amount we need to cover the essential expenses of recording, paying musicians, studio time, licensing, travel, manufacturing etc. There are so many more expenses involved in the making and completion of our project, and that includes planning, preparing and delivering all the rewards you are pledging towards.

If you have already pledged at one level and are considering re-pledging at a higher level to earn a greater reward, or if you have yet to pledge and are still on the fence, this is your last chance to get in on more of what you want -- including the exclusive Kickstarter CD and a more up-close-and-personal involvement with Mike and Derri as they work for and with you to give you the songs you love, and more of them!

Seriously, thank you again for any and all support you are offering Kerosene Halo on this new project. We promise you will not be disappointed.

March 30th Update... By Popular Demand ~ Additional "Jukebox" Packages Added!


Six days to go, and at the time of us writing, we have $4,472 left to raise and meet our goal. We've been amazed at the level of support you all have shown us over the past three weeks, and truly appreciate every dollar pledged. To that end, we've received multiple requests to add more "Jukebox" packages ~ and we've done just that. Packages 9, 10, and 11 have had a total of 10 more opportunities for fans to pledge. What this means is that if all "Jukebox" packages sell out, we'll be recording a total of 20 fan selected songs! Choose wisely ~ you never know what we'll do with these songs in the end. This will also take us some time, so while the "House On Fire" album is scheduled to be completed and released this fall, the "Jukebox" packages will take some additional time to record. But it will all be worth it! Thanks again for all your support...


March 24th Update...

Wow ..... you guys are amazing.  You've already pledged over $20,000, which puts us 2/3 of the way to our goal at a little over halfway through the campaign -- this is truly remarkable!  We were hoping for the best, but we did not expect such a generous response so soon.  We are beyond grateful and are feelin' the love.  Our fans are the best, and that means YOU.

Ironically, in the Land of Kickstarter, the half point is also the most daunting and treacherous as donations tend to slack off and panic begins to set in.  If our entire $30,000 goal is not reached, all of the current goodwill and generosity we've received so far will be in vain and we shall return to the poorhouse until we've paid every farthing for the expenses of our new album.  This is the time when we begin making very earnest pleas to our fans who are still on the fence, waiting ...... waiting for something .... but they know not what ....

One thing we've been hearing from a number of people is, "Why should we support the Kickstarter when everything you're recording will be for sale later on?"  A fair question.  Our campaign serves a huge purpose.  We get to raise the support to write, record, and manufacture the new album WITH you -- an album that we will get to then share with a wider audience once it's released.  You all make that happen, which is both humbling and amazing.  We get to do this because of YOU.  And with that in mind, we are going to offer a true exclusive for anyone who supports our Kickstarter campaign and helps us meet our $30,000 goal.  From now until the end of the campaign, anyone that supports us with a minimum of $25 (before shipping) in our newly added reward level #2.5, and anyone that has or will pledge in reward levels over $25 (before shipping), will also get an exclusive yet-to-be-recorded Kerosene Halo CD which will not be otherwise sold to the general public.  What this means is that you won't see it online, in iTunes, or on future tours. This is for YOU, our loyal fans and Kickstarter supporters.  We have 11 more days on our campaign -- 11 days to raise the remaining $9,500 and 11 days to pre-order your package and get the exclusive Kerosene Halo supporter CD.  AND, if we manage to hit $40,000, we'll have ANOTHER surprise to announce...

Until then, our sincere love and thanks for getting us this far...

House On Fire
House On Fire

 Michael Roe and Derri Daugherty have come a long way since their beginnings in the early 1980s with their respective bands The 77s and The Choir. In 1991, they joined with DA's Terry Taylor and Adam Again's Gene Eugene to form the legendary Lost Dogs. The Dogs' unique brand of 'Americana' music (a little before there actually was such a thing) was an exciting vehicle for Michael and Derri as it allowed them to branch out a bit musically from their own bands. It also formed a deep personal bond between the two when they discovered how their musical tastes often ran parallel to one another, particularly when it came to 'alt folk' and other similar styles -- classic folk/pop artists like Richard Thompson, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen were often mentioned in the same breath as modern ones like Wilco, Mark Kozelek, Low and others. "We should form a duo and make a record together of all this kind of stuff that we listen to", they would often say to each other. They even made an abortive attempt to do so in 1999, but months turned into years and the dream of a duo with beautiful harmonies and open-tuned guitars began to feel more 'pipe' than probable.

But the dream refused to die. Finally, during the cold winter months of 2011, our heroes fled to Southern California for some sun and fun but more importantly, to record once again in the historic studio where they first recorded together more than a decade previous -- the fabled Neverland Studio that Derri built from scratch and recorded many popular albums in thereafter. There, he and Mike laid the foundational tracks for what would become a new album by a new duo -- "Kerosene Halo". Following the gorgeous sounding album's release in the late spring, a triumphant tour followed that cemented the boys' partnership with a solid new base of fans born from The Choir, The 77s, The Lost Dogs and many newcomers who were excited about the unique sound emanating from these long-admired artists. Following the success of that first album and tour, the guys were determined to record and release a new Kerosene Halo album annually. Sadly, inertia set in once again when the usual financial demands upon the life of a musician stymied the new duo and redirected their energies back towards their original three bands.

Four long years later, Michael and Derri were determined to keep their dream alive and make another Kerosene Halo album. However, this time, they wanted to try something that they had hoped to do on the first project -- create a full band sound to cradle their delicate harmonies and haunting melodies. Mike tells it like this -- "Even though Derald and I are very fond of our traditional folk/country approach with pedal steel and acoustic guitars, we also long to hear the sound of a dark, brooding rhythm section to provide a vibey contrast to our simpler folk sound. We had wanted to have that kind of backup band for part of our first album, but there just wasn't enough time and money to make it happen. For our upcoming album, we finally made up our minds to carry that plan forward by inviting our fans to participate in the process with us! The two of us have always gotten along like a 'house on fire' both musically and personally, and we figured that maybe we could use that metaphor as a template for the kind of heat and urgency we wish to infuse our sound with for our second album. So, for now, we have a working title, "House On Fire", along with a band consisting of ourselves and several top shelf musicians of the finest pedigree, many of whom are fan favorites we have worked, written, played and recorded with on numerous occasions over the years." These include:

 GREG KELLOGG -- pedal steel for Mercy River, Lost Dogs, Kerosene Halo, and songwriter/composer for EMI, BMG, Universal Pictures, Disney, Word, Paramount Pictures, Fox, E channel, and Dreamworks.

And the songs? This time around, the boys decided to cut down on covering their favorite legendary songwriters in order to focus in upon the substantial skills possessed by themselves and their close friends like Chris Taylor, Steve Hindalong and Phil Madeira.  Mike remembers, "Our favorite tunes from the first album came from the pens of those closest to us, so we decided to lean upon their wonderful talents once again.  It makes them happy and it makes us even more happy!"  Phil Madeira, in particular, has been helpful by organizing group songwriting sessions with the duo early on to make sure that the guys hit the ground running with a lot of excitement and inspiration to carry them forward. Derri says, "Unlike the first album, we had our hand in the songwriting process from the get-go this time around and we have Phil to thank for that. He helped encourage the spark of creativity between us and gave us a lot of great ideas ..... indeed, great songs."

If we meet our financial goal, our plan is to finish writing the album and record it as soon as possible, with a mid-fall 2015 release and tour to follow.  We've attempted to provide exciting rewards at every price level, including vinyl (with downloads) for not only what will be the "House On Fire" record, but our debut "Kerosene Halo" record from 2011.  (Only 250 copies of each record will be manufactured for sale.)  We're also providing reward levels that will allow you to choose songs for us to record, a coffee-table style book of Michael's beloved "Derri's Morning Movement" photos, access to us in the studio with a private performance, the chance to be an opening act for us on our upcoming tour, and even a premium level where as an Executive Producer where you'll be in on the entire album process and even join us on the road as a "touring member" for the weekend.  As fans and supporters, you are special to us, and we want this to be special for you ~ at every reward level.  

The Halo is burning bright this time around, and you can help it burn even brighter ...

Risks and challenges

As with all Kickstarter campaigns, the biggest challenge is the prospect of not reaching our financial goal. We are ready to meet our reward obligations, but we need your help to make this happen. Funds raised over and above our goal will be used to help with production on the new record and help to pay bills. As always, we thank you for your support.

**Please note, with the "Jukebox" packages (levels 9, 10, & 11) Michael Roe & Derri Daugherty aka "Kerosene Halo" reserve the right of refusal to any fan chosen song that they feel isn't appropriate for their acoustic duo. Fans that pledge are asked to come up with at least two (2) options for them to record, and the band is committed to finding suitable songs to record with all those that pledge on these levels.**

You will be included in the band’s and Lo-Fidelity Records' personal e-mail threads during the creative process – be a part of the discussion when we send back and forth rough mixes, lyric ideas, artwork ideas, sort out the song sequence, notes with feedback, schedule deadlines and complaints about Mike. Plus, we’ll update you with general news and exclusive photos for the days that you aren’t in the studio.

    That's not all: You and a guest will be invited to the "Music City Brunch, Listening Party & Performance" event in Nashville.

    But wait, that's not all: at the conclusion of the Nashville event and hang, you and your guest will join Michael and Derri for a private dinner for Associate and Executive Producers only at the Sportsman's Lodge in Brentwood, TN where we will discuss promotional ideas for the album release, tour plans, and celebrate the album and your involvement in the process.

    Also included is…well, everything else! You'll also get everything listed in the $100 reward level (#8), plus the bonus 'live in the studio' download, and signed photo album of the best of "Derri's Morning Movement" photos taken by Michael Roe.

    The fine print ~ What isn't included in this package: your travel, lodging, brunch and dinner costs for the "Music City Brunch, Listening Party & Performance" in Nashville. For T-Shirt sizes 2XL and up, please add $10 to your pledge.

    #16 ~ "KICKSTARTER EXECUTIVE PRODUCER" PACKAGE ~

    You will be listed as one of the Executive Producers on the studio album. You are really in the band! You will be included in the band’s and Lo-Fidelity Records' personal e-mail threads during the creative process – be a part of the discussion when we send back and forth rough mixes, lyric ideas, artwork ideas, sort out the song sequence, notes with feedback, schedule deadlines and complaints about Mike. Plus, we’ll update you with general news and exclusive photos for the days that you aren’t in the studio.

    That's not all: You and a guest will be invited to the "Music City Brunch, Listening Party & Performance" event in Nashville.

    But wait, that's not all: at the conclusion of the Nashville event and hang, you and your guest will join Michael and Derri for a private dinner for Associate and Executive Producers only at the Sportsman's Lodge in Brentwood, TN where we will discuss promotional ideas for the album release, tour plans, and celebrate the album and your involvement in the process.

    Stop the presses, that's not all: Once the album is done, Michael and Derri plan to hit the road, and want YOU (just you) to come along for a weekend (Friday & Saturday) of the tour. You will join us on a Friday and will get in the van for 2 days of long drives, bad food, worse hotels and overall lack of sleep. You'll carry our guitars, sell our merchandise, eat from our deli-tray backstage, and will even help us shake down promoters at the end of the night and help us get paid. You'll get the full tour experience in just 2 short days. If you're a man, you'll go home to your friends and family even more of a man. If you're a woman ... well ... you'll go home even more glad that you aren't a man.

    Also, included is…well, everything else! You'll also get everything listed in the $100 reward level (#8), plus the bonus 'live in the studio' download, and a signed photo album of the best of "Derri's Morning Movement" photos taken by Michael Roe.

    The fine print ~ What isn't included in this package: your travel, lodging, brunch and dinner costs for the "Music City Brunch, Listening Party & Performance" in Nashville, and your travel to and from the starting and ending location for your weekend touring with the band. We will, however, cover your meals and hotel room for 2 nights on the tour. For T-Shirt sizes 2XL and up, please add $10 to your pledge.
