The time of The Lovers has begun. On the heels of Cassidy Haley’s first full-length album, The Fool (2010), comes the next album endeavor, The Lovers. Cassidy’s previous release saw success last year after being fan-funded through Kickstarter. In the first week of release, the album reached #78 on the iTunes rock chart, and the music video for the album’s second single, “This Time,” was a featured video on Logo TV’s NewNowNext Pop Lab. Now Cassidy is set to work on his next album, The Lovers, but he is once again turning to Kickstarter. This time, he’s starting with a goal of $7,000 to set up his own, in-home recording studio and buy the necessary equipment. This way he can produce everything himself for this and all future releases. Ever grateful for his fans, Cassidy is offering incentives from a celebratory UStream to advance digital or physical copies of the album to an behind-the-scenes All Access Pass on the album-making process to a private show! And that’s not all: our first goal is $7,000. However, if it is surpassed--allowing for further promotion of The Lovers--and reaches $10,000, Cassidy will raffle off 10 prizes to randomly selected Kickstarter backers. If the goal is surpassed and $15,000 are reached, he will also host a special Truth or Dare UStream.
Thanks so much for all of your continued support.
Congratulations! You all reached the first goal of $7,000 in less than ONE DAY! That is absolutely amazing and something you should all be proud of. With that money, Cassidy will be able to set up his own home studio with the purchase of a new computer, software and recording equipment.
But we're not done yet: now we move on to the second tier of our goal and will be raising $10,000 to help raise promotion costs for THE LOVERS, including the printing of the CD and the creation of all new merchandise! We’re well on our way to the ultimate goal of $15,000 (and the Truth or Dare UStream).
Remember, once we hit the $10,000 goal, Cassidy will raffle off 10 exclusive prizes to randomly selected Kickstarter donors including a big and beautiful personalized painting, a phone call with Cassidy to discuss life and anything else you would like or even get a personal serenade, ANY cover song of your choice recorded by Cassidy Haley, mixed and delivered as an mp3, and a collector’s package of THE LOVERS merch similar to the THE FOOL and the THIS TIME collector’s packages. (yet to be created but sure to be awesome!). No amount is too small to be entered into the raffle, and every dollar counts! by donating anything to the campaign you are automatically entered, so all you have to do is promote the campaign and donate as little as a dollar!
Thank you for helping to make this album come to life!
We officially hit the second goal of $10,000 and still have 14 days to go to hit the REAL goal of $15,000! Now, in addition to the purchase of the new studio equipment, Cassidy has raised funds to get THE LOVERS printed, purchase merchandise, and cover promotional costs.
Thanks to everyone who has already contributed to make this album happen by donating and spreading the word. By reaching $10,000, the raffle is officially ON. Anyone who donates or has donated to the Kickstarter fundraiser will be entered to win one of 10 exclusive prizes, including a personal phone call with Cassidy, any cover song of your choice recorded by Cassidy and sent to you as an mp3, and a collector's package of THE LOVERS merch. No amount is too small to be entered: even a $1 donation will get you entered into the raffle.
And now we move on to the third, ultimate goal of $15,000 to support Cassidy through the process of making the album so that he can fully focus on the album. Once that goal is reached, Cassidy will do a special "Truth or Dare" UStream with everyone who has donated to the fundraiser where he will answer all of your questions and do all of your dares (within legal limits, of course!).
Looking forward to seeing you all at the Truth or Dare UStream!
