**UPDATE: 6/11/2012**

We did it!  We really can't explain how much this means to us...and in the past 14 days we've been absolutely overwhelmed by the support of those we know and those we don't know at all.  THANK YOU EVERYONE.

For those who have not yet backed our project, please note that we are still graciously and humbly accepting pledges until our timeline expires. As we produce this album, there will be many additional costs that extend well beyond the recording process (such as audio mastering, CD pressing, distribution, and marketing).  Every piece of the puzzle is equally important, so rest assured that your donation will be well spent!

It's happening!

Dear friends,

Saint Anyway is VERY excited to announce that we plan to record our music professionally for the first time this summer.  After playing and writing songs for 4 years, we know that our music is overdue for the pro treatment, and we want to make it happen!  We've never had the resources to record our music in a professional studio before, but with your help...we can finally do it.  We've already toured a studio here in Minneapolis (The Library) and met an engineer who loves our music and is really excited to work with us (Troy).  This will be a very big step in the right direction for us as a band, and will help us to continue growing for years to come.  Here are the two best ways to help us out with this project and get involved:

1. Watch our short promo video.  It will give you a quick run-down of who we are, and what we are trying to do.  (Plus the video is very entertaining, if we do say so ourselves.)  Then, check out the FABULOUS PRIZES we'll be giving out in exchange for your support and generosity.  Remember: if we do not reach our funding goal by June 26, we will keep NONE of the money raised and your credit cards will not be charged...this would be SO sad, but that is the way it works.  So...figure out which backer level is right for you watch that fund-o-meter fill up!

2. Forward our video (link below) and/or this web page to anyone else that would be interested in supporting us!  It will probably help to give your friends/family/network a quick sentence explaining how you know us and why we are awesome.

Thank you so much everyone!  We're so thrilled to be doing this finally!

Love, 

SA
