3 MORE DAYS!!!!
Dear friends, supporters, lovers and dreamers…..
We are in the final days of our pledge drive.
Now's the time, if you haven't already, to consider donating something to my
little barbecue.
If you've already donated, perhaps you want a little more before we say goodnight.
Maybe if you're at the $25 level you might actually want to donate $35 more and
get the second disk of outtakes, demos and orphan songs.
Maybe you've donated $60 but decided that you might want to up your donation $65 and get the journals and play by play of the songs as they take shape.
In any case, THANK YOU for donating and if you haven't already,
what are you waiting for?
I'VE GOT 3 DAYS LEFT TO TRY AND HIT $30,000.
If i do, and you donated, you'll get both Small Stars albums and be on my guest list for any show I play until 2012.
In any case, thank you so much for listening to me and donating.
We've got three days left to try and raise about $6000.
Impossible?
Stranger things have happened.

Original message:

Hello,
I'm Miles Zuniga.
I'm a singer, songwriter, budding buddhist, armchair philosopher, and chess enthusiast from Austin TX.
You may or may not know me from my day job in Fastball.
I love playing in that band but it's high time I made a solo record.
"Well, what's stopping you, Miles?" you might ask.

MONEY.

Yes, it's true.
Recording in a recording studio costs money.
So does paying the engineer, the other musicians, the mixing guy, the mastering guy, paying for the artwork,
the manufacturing, the promotion, etc.
Recently, a friend of mine told me about Kickstarter.
It's a safe easy way to raise money for my album.
and it's FUN.

I'm looking to raise $20,000.
I actually need a lot more than that but I wanted to set up an attainable goal that we could reach together.

Here's the deal- If I don't reach my goal of $20,000 I don't get ANYTHING.
And you, dear reader, will not receive any of the fabulous rewards you would get for donating.

REWARDS? REWARDS YOU SAY??

YES!!!!!
If you donate money you get all kinds of fabulous things in return.
I will give you the shirt off my back (OK, that's not on the list of rewards, but make me an offer!)
The more you GIVE the more you GET.

For instance……

I'll send you my Fastball demos from various stages of our career.
I'll send you songs that didn't make the record and demos for the songs that do.
I'll cover any song you like (yes, even "Freebird" ((sigh)).
I'll write a song for you or a loved one or we could write a song together.
I'll come to your house and play a show.
A full list of rewards is listed on the right hand side of this page.
Anything you can give will be GREATLY appreciated.
If you can't give anything please forward this link to a friend.

I've got 30 days to raise $20,000.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
Thank you for reading this and be sure and CHECK OUT THE VIDEO AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
