We're Lohio, an indie folk band from Pittsburgh Pa., and we have the opportunity to work with industry-recognized film director Thom Glunt to make a music video for "Adelai", a track from our newest album Family Tree. His body of work is impressive and full of creativity: www.thomglunt.com.
No time to watch them all? Check out the demo reel for the fan on the go. We need to raise $4,000 to make the video and offset the costs of promoting the video once it is complete.

Why kickstarter? If you're new to Kickstarter, Hello! This is a great, low-risk way for projects to secure their funding, because no one is charged until the project meets its proposed limit. In this case, our project is a music video, and our limit is $4,000. We think Kickstarter has been an excellent tool to create stronger ties between bands and their supporters. Not only is the exchange between us more intimate and equal (than say, buying our album in a store), but you also in a sense become "micro-producers" of the things / bands / projects you love.


Why music video? We've just released our new album Family Tree, and we want to give people all kinds of ways and reasons to find it. With the ease of video streaming, it really helps to have video in your body of work. Video is a great way for people to discover and make a more immediate, visceral connection with your music. You can also use video to turn some industry heads and get some recognition in the la la lands and narnias of the blogosphere. Recognition leads to support, which then leads to more videos!


Why should I give? If this is the first you've heard of us, Hello! We love the music we make and being a part of DIY projects like Kickstarter. To get the full sense of our work, you can visit our website: www.lohiomusic.com. Also, our albums are available to stream on bandcamp: www.lohiomusic.bandcamp.com. If you've ever seen us live and thought, "dang I should have bought an album", now is your chance! Only this time, you are not only supporting us, you know exactly where your money is going, and you get sweet, one-of-a-kind dividends in return!


Speaking of...get to the goodies! Alright, a lot of what we are offering are project-specific, one-of-a-kind rewards for helping us launch this thing. We like to think these make great gifts in general; not just for fans but for anyone! These include handmade items, video paraphernalia, limited releases, production credits and more. We'll also come and play a special in-house show for you and your friends (college kids, we're winking at you!) Have a gander at our offerings to the right for the full list.
We set our limit at a level we think we can match, but don't let it discourage you! There's a lot of head room in the backer rewards to take this thing to the mountaintop.

The way it works: We meet our limit and this thing sails and everyone gets presents and cries tears of joy.


Kickstarter is something else. Let the experiment begin!
