About this project

Hello everyone-

Thanks for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter page! It’s such a cool opportunity to be able to team up with friends, fans, and supporters to make creative projects happen.

It’s hard to believe we’ve been pursuing our music career for four years now. These last few years have been filled with some amazing opportunities and challenging struggles that have shaped us into the artists and individuals we are today. During this time, we’ve continued to evolve as artists and as songwriters – really diving into the highs and lows of our journey and it’s been a real season of growth for us. It’s also been a humbling yet equally inspirational time and we are confident we have the collection of songs to make our best record yet...but we cannot bring it to life without your help!

There is a lot involved in making a record, especially as independent artists without the backing funds from a record label. So we’ve put together a budget of $40,000 to cover all the expenses to make our dream record, as well as promote it in such a way that more people can hear it than ever before. Here is what that $40,000 includes:

• Production, engineering, studio time
• Professional studio musicians
• Mixing the record
• Mastering the record
• Album artwork
• CD & vinyl duplication/manufacturing
• Professional music video
• Marketing & promotion

However, if we do not reach our goal of $40,000, we won’t be able to make our record at all (your credit card will not be charged) and no thank you packages will be sent out. So let's do this!

How you can help:

We have put together a list of unique incentives/thank you packages that are only available for a limited time in exchange for your support. Check them out on the right-hand side of this page and choose one that tickles your fancy!

Please help us spread the word to your friends, family members, classmates, co-workers, etc.!

We can’t thank you enough for the support you’ve already shown. Writing and performing music for a living is truly a dream come true and we’re excited to keep moving forward with this new record. Together, we can do this!

Much love,

Josh & Nicole - ELENOWEN

Risks and challenges

While Kickstarter provides artists like us with such an amazing platform, there still are some potential risks and challenges that could come our way throughout this process. There are a lot of moving pieces to this well-oiled machine. We have carefully done our best to map out a solid timeline for everything, but there can certainly be delays in the process (studio time, production, sending out merchandise, etc) and we ask you to be patient if that were to happen. We are confident that snags and road bumps will be at a minimum and we couldn't be more excited to start this new album's journey with you all!

Bottom line - we are fully committed to this project and once we reach our goal, we will be sure ALL rewards are sent as soon as possible.

    TIER 15B: The acoustic Takamine guitar that was autographed & given to us by Blake Shelton when we were on NBC's The Voice. Our experience on the show took us to a new level in our career, so it seems fitting to tip our hats to that season of our lives as we step into the process of making our dream record. We've written a handful of tunes with this guitar & have played it live at a number of shows. We're excited to pass it along & hope inspiration pours out of it.

    Guitar details: new, barely played Takamine acoustic/electric guitar with built-in tuner. Model No. EF340SC. (Pictures provided to the left) + TIERS 2-4 and 7-9.
