Welcome, and thank you for visiting our Kickstarter page. We're Red June from Asheville, NC. We're heading into the studio in November to record our second full-length album, and we are asking for your support to make this project possible. Our debut recording, Remember Me Well, was funded by a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council and by your generous contributions.
We have made the exciting but difficult decision to commit our time and energy to managing our own business, to booking shows and touring, and to the process of creating music. In order to do that, we have had to scale back our other careers that have carried us to this point. It's tempting to say that we do this on our own, but we know better. Without you, the work we feel so passionately about cannot come full circle.
Please explore the various gift levels to find one that feels right for you. We hope that you will make a gift that will not only entitle you to a copy of the new CD or a house concert, but a gift that lets you know you are playing a critical role in bringing Red June to the next level.

What goes into making an album you ask?
Writing and arranging the songsRecording the album in the studioMixing the CD - this is the process of achieving the correct levels and tone for each instrument and voiceMastering the CD - the final process - making sure the levels are the same across the separate tracks and giving it that “sparkle”
Photo shoot and artwork for the CD
CD duplication and packaging
Distribution and mailing
Touring in support of the album
Combine all these steps and the costs add up very quickly. Again, we couldn't bring this project to fruition without your support. THANK YOU!
