Here's what you'll get if we hit $2000:EVERYONE: A digital download of Kelsey Rottiers' debut E.P. recorded while at the Contemporary Music Center on Martha's Vineyard. We're really proud of this E.P. and we're excited to share a bit of where we've come from.
In addition to the E.P...
HERE'S THE STORY-
After promoting and touring our full-length album around Michigan, we (Kelsey Rottiers & the Rising Tide) are heading back into the studio with our friends The Rough & Tumble (www.theroughandtumble.bandcamp.com) to start a new project: Bear Hope. In 2011, we started finding out about the global plague of sex trafficking, and it's been on our hearts ever since. The result is a collection of songs that speak to all aspects of slavery in our world, and we are so excited to have a chance to record a 5-7 song EP (Extended Play) in Nashville, May 6th through 12th, with Bear Hope as the title track. We want this EP to serve as a way to stand up to the monster that is human trafficking, to give a rallying song for everyone who is doing something about it, to say, with fists in the air: we won't stand for this anymore!
Here's where YOU come in! Our studio time is already covered (thanks to our awesome friend), but we need YOUR help to hit the finishing line on this project. The goal is $1500, which will cover gas expenses for traveling to Nashville (from Michigan), pay the studio musicians, and get the CDs printed! None of the money you pledge will get to us unless the project is over (21 days after launch date) and we've met our goal ($1500), so keep spreading the word and checking the page to see if we've met the goal and we'll keep sending you updates about our progress.

We love you, and thank you for your prayers and support!
love, Kelsey and the team
