How would you like to partner with Daniel Amos to get them back into the studio to make a new album in 2012? Now is your chance!

How would you like to partner with Daniel Amos to get them back into the studio to make a new album in 2012? Now is your chance!

As we all know, due to a variety of issues, Daniel Amos has not recorded a new album since 2001's "Mr Buechner's Dream." Well, it's way overdue for the band to make a new album and you can be a part of it! After many months of planning, we are launching a Kickstarter Campaign to raise enough money to to pay for studio time and the band's travel expenses to make a BRAND NEW album! An entire album of brand new music from Daniel Amos and it can only happen with your help!

If you are unfamiliar with Kickstarter, this is an all or nothing effort folks. Heres how it works. You pledge a certain amount of money to help DA. Your card is not charged unless the project is fully funded. So, if we get to September 6th and we don't have our goal - nothing happens. You keep your money and DA doesn't make an album. If we hit September 6th and we do reach our goal, your credit card is charged by Amazon and DA begins the process of making a new album. We then keep you updated on the progress and begin filling whatever "rewards" you should receive based on your pledge. If at any time you decide you'd like to pledge more, you are able to do that and your "rewards" will be updated to whatever level you pledge.

This campaign begins NOW and will end on Thursday Sep 6, 7:14pm EDT

We're asking for your help not only with pledges, but to get the word out. There are enough DA fans out there that this should be easy, but if we fall short, it will most likely be because a lot of people didn't hear about this effort. Help us spread the word. Whether its on Facebook, or in email, on message boards or anywhere else - get the word out.

Lets make this happen!

UPDATE 8/11/12:

This campaign has gone way beyond our expectations.. thank you all for contributing. We really expected to still be trying to reach the initial goal at this time, so you really have blown us all away.

I know everyone involved is really looking forward to getting started on this album and see what kind of magic comes out of the studio.

Some of you might be wondering if more is needed. Please continue to get the word out about our campaign. While the initial goal was the major hurdle, any additional funds only help make a better album. As you know, some of the guys live in different states and we'll have to be paying for plane tickets and hotel rooms at the very least. The more funds we have available means that they can contribute more to the project than they might otherwise be able to. It also means that more time can be spent in the studio working; more musicians potentially hired to contribute; more time perfecting the mix and the highest possible quality when its being mastered. It can also potentially be used towards nicer or more unique packaging ideas.
