I WILL NOT BE CHAIN3D by Pak | Exclusive Album Merch

$2,001

25

Hi everybody!

I want to personally thank you for considering contributing to the "I Will Not Be Chain3d" album merch campaign!

The album/mixtape - a fully independent, personally financed labor of love - took 3 years to get to this point. It embodies the idea of breaking free from conventions in Mind, Body and Spirit (the 3!), of refusing to succumb, of continuing resistance to unjust & unhealthy conditions placed upon us.

In between bouts of nursing school I made the time to deep dive my inner-core like never before - feelings & thoughts, triumphs & angst, insights & affirmations. It all led me to uncovering and writing this batch of songs. From there it was on to recording, mixing and compiling all the elements you - the listeners and fans - deserve. Which brings us here.

My humble ask that if you enjoy the vibes, value the artistry and want to hear/see more of my material, to please support by doing one, two or all of the following!

1) Pickup the EXCLUSIVE MERCH here on Kickstarter!

2) Turn your friends & fam onto a Pak's vibes/music/merch!

3) Catch a Pak perform live!

4) Listen to ya man Pak's new music/project (a FREE download! available at https://pakraps.com only)!

Above all else know I hella love and appreciate you!!! I could NEVER have gotten this far without YOU - all my friends, fans and fam - and all y'alls ongoing support, encouragement and enthusiasm! BIG UPS and a thousand thanks for holding me down!

Much love & aloha, -Sam John aka Pak

ps, Funds raised here help cover the costs of production I've already incurred (recording, mixing, etc.). Any overages will assist in covering costs of touring/performing the material LIVE! Anything on top of that equals more art, music, vids & merch at higher production values for you and yours!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges come with any project, ours is no different. The first is that if the project does not reach its funding goal, your credit card will NOT be charged and no rewards will be distributed (so let's make this campaign a success and hit that benchmark yo!). The second is that because we have to rely on a 3rd party supplier and printer, delays or hiccups on their end can impact us and our ability to fulfill on our projected delivery period. Also, since we are a small team (2, me and wifey) with jobs, school, etc., any unforeseen circumstances outside our control can affect our ability to deliver on-time as well. That said, any potential delays will be communicated immediately and transparently with an updated estimated delivery provided.
