This Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for the production of the new Kenny Roby album.

Kenny Roby 2012 Album

PLEASE SEE THE UPDATE FURTHER DOWN THIS PAGE

This is the first Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the recording and recording associated costs for the new Kenny Roby album. Our goal is (was!) to raise $2000 to get the ball rolling faster in the early part of the recording process. All of the songs for the album are written (although brand new songs may be recorded if written during the time of the sessions)

We have already recorded a few songs and some basic tracks and will be going into the studio the weekend of 1/15/12 but would like to keep momentum once we get going. So we are shooting for raising the $2000 in the next 15 days. 15 days isn't long so please spread the word to all of your friends on Facebook, Twitter, your blogs and mailing lists.

To hear an early mix of The Short Mile from the new album go to http://www.kennyroby.net/ and click on the Listen page or via Soundcloud at http://soundcloud.com/kenny-roby

Kickstarter policystates that we will not receive your donation nor will you be charged the amount of your pledge unless we reach our goal by the deadline of our campaign. Your credit or debit card will be charged when we have met our goal by the deadline.

If we exceed our goal then any amout over will be used for the recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing or promotion of the new album.

UPDATE! WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS!

Incredible. Thank you all so much for helping to make this album a reality. We cannot close this campaign down before the deadline.

Studio time in a professional studio is usually at least $400 - 600 dollars a day. We are recording in professional studios as well as in our home studios so that keeps our costs down somewhat. If we put the album out as a self-release (which will most likely happen at least in most countries) we will need to pay for mixing, mastering, manufacturing, artwork and early promotion etc..Our intial goal was to raise the first $2,000 for early recording costs and then do another campaign in the near future for other recording and manufacturing costs, but due to your overwhelming generosity we achieved that in less than 24 hours!  We have decided to go ahead and use this campaign to fund the project as a whole as much as possible in the next 14 days before the dealine. Any little bit helps and of course we don't expect to fund the whole project here. We have and will continue to fund the project out of pocket, with your help and through playing music live. Please continue to spread the word!

Thank you all again.

Kenny Roby and friends

    A house concert featuring Kenny Roby for you and your friends. Remember, house concert, not a house party. This will be held at your house or a friend's house on a mutually agreed upon date and time sometime in 2012. You may take donations before or during the house concert to help cover this pledge. In other words this can be a 'group' donation! If your house is within 120 miles of Raleigh or if we can work it out to where Kenny can play at your house concert while on tour in your area then great, but if not, you will be resposible for paying all travel and accomodation expenses to be agreed upon by Kenny and you. Only available in the continental US at this time. For special exceptions please contact us directly through the contact page at www.kennyroby.net. Also, 2 signed physical copies of the new Kenny Roby album (compact disc format) upon completion and release. Also includes a download of a Kenny Roby demo song that has not been on any Kenny Roby album to date.
