Funded! This project was successfully funded on May 16, 2012.


Polly Ammo wants to give you music for your ears to listen to in the form of a 5 song EP of all new music!



Because I have 13 days left to raise $3115 for my Kickstarter project.

So here’s what we’re going to do.

I can meet my goal if I raise $250 a day.  For each day I raise $250, I will POST A VIDEO of myself doing something AMAZING.

To start off with a bang, if I raise $500 by midnight tonight, I will post a video of myself doing interpretive dance to the music of Barry Manilow.

This video will only be available to backers! So if you were planning on waiting and pledging money later, that is a bad plan.  Pledge now!!

You can donate by clicking on the “KS” symbol in the lower right corner of the above video after hitting play, or use this link here

Tell all your friends/internet friends/moms. Together we can MAKE THIS ALBUM HAPPEN.


My name is Jacqui Kennelly.  My musical alter ego Polly Ammo is finally coming out with a new EP!  Five to six songs, lots of tracking done, and all it needs is a few more instruments and some mixing/mastering and pressing.

You may be thinking, "Why would someone as well known and talented as Polly Ammo need my help?"  Good question.  I don't.  Shut up. I just want to let you be involved in something bigger than yourself, for once.  You're welcome.  As you can see from my video, I have some pretty famous support.  So, you know.  Just saying.  Get in on the ground floor.

It took plenty of time to get to this point, and with my recent relocation to Portland from Brooklyn I'm ready to get this record to my adoring public.  It's just not fair to make them wait.

This project is totally independent, and involves just a few hard working musicians and engineers, so we are depending entirely on pledges to finish mixing, mastering and pressing the album, as well as to create any kind of website, merch and promotion.

Check out my wonderful and deeply personal prizes! Let's make a baby together! (Disclaimer: the baby is a record; no babies will be part of the pledge prizes).
