We are the indie alternative folk band Clever Folk. And we're here to ask for your support on our next musical endeavor.

Hey Everybody,

My name is Derrick T. Copeland  (a.k.a. DRockC) and  I'm a engineer/entrepreneur/songwriter from Huntsville, AL.. I am with John Nickel owner of Nickel Cigar Box Guitars studio at Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment, North Alabama’s largest center for the arts, approximately 100,000sq.ft., located in historic Lowe Mill. 

We are the alternative folk band Clever Folk.  And we're here to ask for your support on our next musical endeavor.  John and I are making a new CD to promote Nickel Cigar Box Guitars and we hope to be finished by the Cigar Box Festival and the Bonnaroo Music and ARTS Festival in June of this year.  And we could use your help.  We have been building some unique instruments and writing some very unique material "Down at Lowe Mill". And in the process we've recorded some great takes with scratch vocals in the unique acoustics of Lowe Mill.  This project is going to end up costing close to $7,000 and will include many contributions from the talented artists down at Lowe Mill, which is why we're asking for your help.  We're looking to raise half that money here, on kickstarter, and here's how it works.

You donate at whatever level you can, knowing that any level helps, even one dollar! If we reach our goal of $3,500 in the time allotted, then all is well and we get to complete session recording in April and cover pre-production and production costs. We plan to sell the CDs and Lowe Mill during the Cigar Box Guitar Festival and at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.  We can even go over the goal! - to produce even more CDs.  This would put the new CD in your hands by as early as June of this year! If we don't reach the goal, none of you will be charged, but we won't get any of the money that was pledged. 

Here's where the money is going:

$2500 recording/mixing

$900 mastering

$700 artwork

$2500 duplication

$500 promotion

All of the donations levels will get you a spot on our mailing list.  You can do this for free too at www.reverbnation.com/cleverFolk or http://www.facebook.com/cleverfolk.
