Hey, it's Cooper Trail. My project is Misé and my project's project is Little Mountain.
A year ago I decided to do up a handful songs and make a real, tangible, album. To complete my goal, I traveled extensively throughout the world in a small plastic canoe with nothing but a pet pigeon named Dirk; I soaked in the wisdom of fu-manchu'd Tibetan monks; I grew a rad beard and lived alone on the highlands. After much meditation, I came to the realization that I'd need a few bucks to complete my mission. You'd think I'd have guessed that from the start, but I was under the impression that some Kentuckian company would print me a few thousand CDs out of the plain goodness of its heart. I was wrong: about money, about people in Kentucky. Dawning was the day when I would have to forge my own path and create my own destiny. My innocence was in its twilight; the sun was rising upon reality.
Ladies and gentlemen, that day is upon me.
I don't have the fortune to be on good terms with any Warren Buffets, so I'm asking you, friends, family, not-friends-but-maybe-we've-said-hi-in-the-halls, for the dough. Hey, watch the little video thing. Come talk to me, maybe we can work a deal. And tell everyone you can, 'cause this thing's only going to last a couple days; October 5th is coming faster than you'd think.
I owe my mom a thank you for letting me use her entire identity and credit card to run this Kickstarter project (the guidelines require you to be 18). She's overseeing it, officially. Besides that, she drives me to shows and lets me live in her house and eat all her food. So thanks, mom.
Little Mountain will be released on October 5th at the Belltower in Pullman, WA. Go to http://www.belltowerpullman.com/bart_budwig-cooper_trail.html for tickets and information.
Thank you so much, really. -Cooper
