Welcome to my Kickstarter project! This is so exciting! I am gearing up to complete and release my second full-length album EVER. This album is a pretty humongous deal to me because it's like a new incarnation of myself... It's like I put all my heart and soul and sadness and love and Doctor Who feels into a food processor and wound up with the best audio salsa I've ever made. The only downside is that it's ridiculously expensive to do the following:
1. pay my producer
2. master the album
3. get physical copies made
4. distribute the album
In order to do those things and get the album into your hands, I am going to need your help! (This includes you, shy guy in the corner.) Your bills and bank notes are the tortilla chips we need to eat the audio salsa, essentially.
HOWEVER! I was not about to just ask you to hand me your monies without giving you some sweet stuff in return. That's why we're here! This is the FUN PART! Prepare.
I've come up with a bunch of exclusives for you.. they're over there to the right. I'm particularly excited about the live experience ones, like playing a show AT YOUR HOUSE!?!? Yeah. Or you being on the record!! I am incomprehensibly stoked on the chance to meet some of you and do fun stuff together. I'm also going to get my crafty shoes out and make you stuff, like knitted potholders and pictures of your face.
I've also made a 3-song acoustic EP specifically for this project. It will never be available anywhere else. Ever.
***ALL pledges above $5 will get the EP download!***
Contributions of any amount will get access to all of the project updates as well. This means you'll get to know the album title, see the artwork, and hear a track from the album before anyone else!
I'm also making a few physical items exclusively available through Kickstarter, like a limited edition poster, handwritten lyric books, and some fancy stickers that will be included in all packages that I physically ship to you, along with a thank you note!
Here is a picture of the poster:
Here is a picture of the sticker:
So those are fun. All of the other physical items will be made differently for each person, so I can't show you pictures of them yet, but I can promise you that they will also be fun. More fun than hide and go seek. Exponentially more fun. Also, if I have extras of anything, I'll throw some surprise goodies into your packages, so you might get more than you bargained for!
For the real life experiences, we will set up a date and time to do them together. You won't have to submit a time right away, so don't worry if you want to do one of them but don't know your schedule yet!
Okay, the happy part of this description is over.
Like most good things, there is also a bad thing. Here, we shall call it The Catch (although it is bad it still deserves a proper name). The Catch is that if we don't reach the minimum goal of $2000, I do not get any of the money and the album may not be able to be released. All of the pledges would be refunded, but you also wouldn't get any of the rewards. All of this would go to waste and we would all cry ourselves to sleep for weeks. SO! It would be very much appreciated if you would tell your friends, family, coworkers, classmates, hairdressers, accountants, baristas, and everyone you see on the street to check this page out and contribute as much as they are able! It would be so, so, so very wonderful and appreciated beyond belief. :)
I love you guys more than you know, and thank you infinitely for all of your support. You are the best in the universe!
