Hello fellow Kick Starters! We are an up and coming country/pop trio called ARTEN WAY. Our group consists of Jadyn and Jaclyn (who are sisters) and Blake (who is Jaclyn’s hubby). How did we come up with the name “ARTEN WAY” you ask? Well...AR is for Arkansas because that’s where Blake is from and TEN is for...yup you guessed it...TN because that’s where Jadyn and Jaclyn grew up :) All of us were raised in musical families, getting our start by singing/playing in the church. We take pride in writing our own material and coming up with/arranging our vocal parts. We’ve got song topics ranging from sweet/romantic love songs...to funny/quirky relationship challenges...to tying up and throwing a cheating lover into a bathtub (all in fun of course haha)...to moments of desperation and wondering why sometimes you feel like God isn’t listening to you cry out. We all feel a range of emotions on a daily basis, so we try to write in that same fashion...hoping people can connect and relate. In all seriousness, music is more than a fun hobby for us, it’s our calling. We want to be the voice for those who are struggling, we want to be the laughter that reminds people to enjoy life, we want to be the encouragement to chase dreams and we want to be the positive light that emits hope. Music is the most amazing outlet to connect with people! We feel so blessed to even have the opportunity to share our story and goals with you. Any financial contribution would be greatly appreciated. WE CAN’T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU! With your help we vow to pour our blood, sweat and tears into this project and deliver an EP that WE can ALL be proud to have been a part of. They say “Team work makes the dream work” and that statement couldn’t be more true! We thank you in advance for your help in bringing our project to life :)
To make a professional 7 song EP (Producers Phil Madeira, Lynn Nichols & Brad Hill, Live Players, Mixing, Mastering, etc), A new photo shoot for album artwork/Web (Photographer, hair and makeup artist, studio/location) and a budget for printing/promotional purposes (via itunes, Facebook, Youtube, etc). Although we actually need a minimum of $13,500, we are setting our goal at $8,500 ($5,000 less) in hopes of airing on the safe side. As you know, with Kick Starter it’s all or nothing. In order to make this happen we NEED to raise AT LEAST this $8,500. Anything over $13,500 would be an additional blessing because we would have funding for real promotion, marketing, maybe even additional songs and a music video! We can't possibly thank you enough for considering to believe and support us!!
Risks and challenges
As with all things in life, obstacles sometimes arise out of your control. The biggest "risk" might be a slight delay in timing (Production, Mixing, Mastering etc can sometimes take a little longer than expected). However, we feel we have given an extremely reasonable time-line and hope to in fact deliver EARLY!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
