Hi! We are Bella and Lily, sisters from St. Louis, MO. Thank you for taking the time to look at our Kickstarter proposal—we greatly appreciate it. We are so excited to share our music with you! This will be our first album and we have many songs we want to record. Having already recorded a song with full production in a quality studio, we really don't want to settle for less. We learned a lot with that experience along with how much it can cost. Kickstarter allows creative people to bring their art to life. We really need your help because with your support—we can record in a professional studio, pay our production crew, studio musicians, and take care of manufacturing costs. 

By meeting our Kickstarter goal we can make our album. If we exceed our goal, we can add additional songs to our album. Please share this link, check out our website, watch our video, and like us on Facebook.

We want to give a very heartfelt Thank You to Team Bella & Lily for generously donating their time, talent and for believing in our music. Without you- we wouldn’t have a chance. So, thank you to… Deborah Finkelstein for your creative, genius design and art direction on Kickstarter, the “kick” merch, the CD artwork and the beautiful website! Rob Grimm for taking beautiful, top-notch photos! Justin Dioneda for the live footage during our demo recording at Shock City Studio! Howard Lerner for your patience and helping develop our website! Jeff Chamberlin for the amazing Kickstarter and Prince Charming videos!

We also want to thank our manager, Robynn Ragland for her help, guidance and wisdom.

Risks and challenges

We have been planning on launching our Kickstarter campaign for over a year and couldn’t be more excited for this launch! We know that making a record is a lot of things: exciting, hard, exhausting, fun, fulfilling and takes a huge team effort … it is also something we have been working for all of our lives! We have a large and very supportive team of talented people behind us. We have loved putting together all of our rewards and can’t wait to ship them out to our supporters. (We hope that we have at least one supporter for the big one so we get to write a song for someone!) A lot of prep-work, pre-recording, planning, and set-up has already been done so we can avoid as many obstacles as possible. We have some awesome studio options, wonderful backing musicians and an amazing team in place. We also have incredible support from the St. Louis press & media with a lot of radio and TV interviews lined up over the next month. If the stars align, we will make our goal and record our album! Your financial help is like the last (and so incredibly important!) piece of a 10,000-piece puzzle. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and consider contributing to our dream. We can’t wait to THANK YOU!!!
