Help me make YOU an album!

2/12/2013 UPDATE:

We are 69% funded with only 3 days to go. If you EVER believed in me or craved a Katrina Parker CD, please pledge now and help make it happen!

Also, I'll be talking w/the lovely Michelle Li of
WECT TV & Fox Wilmington TONIGHT at 5pm PST/8pm EST! We'll discuss The Voice, my new album and this Kickstarter campaign. Come join us: http://ow.ly/hEuUg.

2/8/2013 UPDATE:


If you missed the free web show, you can see an abridged version of it now at www.katrinaparker.com! Thanks to everyone who tuned in and heard a little mini-preview of the album. :)
1/29/2013 UPDATE:

We are now nearly 50% funded! As a thank you, we are putting on a FREE WEB SHOW a week from tonight (2/5/13) at 6:30PM PT (9:30PM ET)!


Did you ever support me or vote for me on Season 2 of NBC's The Voice?

Have you ever asked me "When are you making an album??"

Have you ever believed in me or hoped for my success?

If you said yes to any of the above, keep reading (and I LIKE YOU!).

Since The Voice, I’ve kept my nose to the grindstone, writing and putting together songs for a new album. I'm finally ready to record and release these songs, but I don't have a label. or a trust fund. or a sugar daddy...what I do have is the power of YOU, and I believe I can finance this album with your help.

Kickstarter is empowering. It allows friends, fans and family to support an artist's projects directly by pledging money for specific rewards. We've tried to create rewards you'll find exciting - things that are specific to the project (a digital pre-release of the CD, limited edition Kickstarter merchandise, etc...) and rewards that go a step further and include "experiences" (a day with me in the studio recording a cover of your choice, a singing telegram, etc...).

We have only one month to meet our goal (and it's all or nothing - we either make our goal or keep none of the money)...so please check out all the rewards to the right of the page and think about what you're willing and able to do. Can you pledge? Can you share the link with everyone you know? We need evangelists talking about our campaign as much as we need pledges!

If you're interested in being an evangelist (and reaching out to your personal network via e-mail or facebook or twitter) OR if you have any questions about this campaign or any of the rewards listed, e-mail me at katrina@katrinaparker.com. As always, THANK YOU for being amazing.

xoxo,
Katrina

If (no WHEN) this album is funded, I hope to complete it by Spring/Summer 2013. We'll fulfill the majority of your rewards by that time (or no later than the date given in the reward details). However, if any problems arise that may affect that timeline (as they can with creative endeavors), you'll be the FIRST to know. I'll make it a priority to keep you updated on the recording process - from the wonderful to the frustrating to the wonderful again.

FAQ

  • YES, you can pledge for any of the rewards unless otherwise specified. However, if you're outside the Continental US, there will be a $10 fee for shipping added to any rewards above $25 (sorry, loves! We have to balance the additional shipping costs!).

    Last updated:
  • If (no WHEN!) this project is successfully funded, your card will be charged on Saturday, February 16th at 10:35AM EST...at the same time a rainbow will magically appear in the sky reminding you that your decision to fund this record was a sound one. :)

    Last updated:
  • Yes, your dog can pledge as long as he has AUTHORIZED access to your bank card...ok, NO - not really. Dogs are not authorized to make credit card transactions - now we're just getting silly.

    Last updated:
  • I can't guarantee you'll love the finished product (even if I do), but I can guarantee we'll work hard to deliver strong songs that are true to who I am and high quality recordings. I can't predict the future, and whether or not you love them is a matter of personal taste (although I REALLY hope you do)...but if you love my voice? You'll probably at least LIKE this record.

    Last updated:
  • You'll get your reward no later than the delivery date specified in the reward details (hopefully a few months sooner, but we added a little extra time in case we run into any scheduling or manufacturing issues). I will post regular updates here to keep you in the loop on reward fulfillment!
