Paper Bird is an Indie Folk band from Denver, Colorado. We've been writing music together for over six years now and have released three full length albums, toured internationally, scored the music for an acclaimed ballet, and become a household name in Colorado.
This winter we will be recording our fourth full length album "Rooms" at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver, CO. We truly believe this album will profile our adapted sound, giving you the best music we have written in the six years we've been a band. We've gone through a lot of changes since the release of our last album and feel as if this album will be our debut. We cannot wait to release this collection of songs on February 19th . . . but we need your help!!
We are pledging a goal of $15,000, which will go towards:
Recording, mixing and mastering our album
Paying our producer (Ryan Fritch from Petaluma, CA)
Releasing the album on vinyl and CD (our first album on vinyl)
Packaging and artwork for the album
Hiring a publicist for the album's release
Creating music videos to promote the album
A cushion for the initial costs of touring (we will be touring all Spring and Summer in support of this album)
Labor costs (we are going to be working on this album full time during the next three months, taking away opportunities to work).
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
Paper Bird is, and has always been, an independent band. We have never worked with a label, which makes recording an album a difficult feat. Putting an album out has serious costs, which is why Kickstarter is such an incredible website. This campaign allows us to reach out to the people who believe in what we do and allows them to help support the continuation of our work. We do what we do because of the direct support our fans present us and this campaign is another platform where we can be inspired by those who push us to keep creating. The beauty of this campaign does not stop there-we are not simply asking you to give us your money without the expectation of something in return, we have incredible rewards for your help!
A Few of our Lovely Rewards:
Our New Album! CD, Vinyl & Digital (album art up soon)
Our Past Albums
Tour Souvenirs (posters, pictures, trinkets)
Voice Lessons - either locally or over Skype
Music business coaching - either locally or over Skype
If you pledge for a reward that is local and you are out of town, please contact us to figure out the best way we can compensate you.

Risks and challenges
Recording an album is a difficult feat! Between writing, recording, mixing, mastering, promotion, and touring, we have a lot of work on our hands. The main challenge we face with this record though, is financial. With six years of experience we are confident in our ability to produce the best album possible, but are also aware of the costs necessary to reach our goal. That's where you come in. We really appreciate any support you can give. Remember, if we don't reach our goal we get NOTHING! Anything helps!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
