About this project

We would like to announce that we're coming back!

In August of 2012, Chasing Jonah released the 4 song EP "And the Clocks Moved" and based on our fan feedback, it is still one of the most emotionally charged and beloved collection of songs that they've owned.

...but honestly, we would not have been able to do it had it not been for your previous love and support on our last Kickstarter.

Chasing Jonah now has a beautifully talented team behind it including: musicians, producers, videographers, business professionals, and many others who are willing to help the Re-Launch and Re-Branding process come to life. This next project is going to demonstrate the talent of a combination of wonderful individuals that are bringing their creativity and passion to the table. 

THE PLAN:

Our end goal is to launch independently. We want to record our first Full Length Album and release it to the world. We also wanted you to make this your project as much as it is ours...so we're going to need some help on the following:

-Recording a Full Length Album 

-Filming Music Videos

-Photography and Artwork

-Marketing and Promotions

WHAT WE NEED:

With the help of friends, fans, and team members, we've set up the minimum amount that is needed to get this thing going. Thankfully with Kickstarter, we can always raise more than the set goal. 

$15,000 is the estimated amount to help cover the basics. We're pledging to work as hard as we can to make this a product that you'll love just as much if not more than our last endeavor. So join with us in creating this next passionate and moving work of art. Once we're off the ground, we can keep making even more music for your wonderful souls. :D

HOW IT WORKS:

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website that helps dreams come to life. By pledging on Kickstarter to donate any amount from $1 to $1,001 and beyond, you can help us towards our dreams. 

The awesome part is that depending on what amount you pledge, you get some pretty cool prizes in return. So make sure you review the side panel that shows what we have to offer for your partnership in bringing something so meaningful to reality. 

The scary part is that if we don't meet our goal, we do not receive ANY of the funds and we won't be able to make our Record...

BUT we happen to have as much faith in you as you have had in us...so we kinda super, duper, really believe that we're all going to work together to make it happen!

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

You can donate any amount that you're comfortable with and still be a part of the bigger picture. It doesn't stop there! You can keep sharing with your friends and help push this along. We need all of the support we can get! 

Also, stay updated on announcements and progress. There will be continuous opportunities for you to help out with as well as some fun incentives throughout the campaign for you to take advantage of. 

For those of you who haven't heard us quite yet, here's a link to the Music Video we released last year for the first Single off of our last EP:

Risks and challenges

With any big DREAM, there are big RISKS and big CHALLENGES...it's all a part of the process and growing experience.

This Kickstarter will be our FIRST big risk and challenge in the re-launch of Chasing Jonah. The NEXT will be the time it takes to complete the project.

Despite the months that have been spent planning for this project, once we have the funds to begin, that will only be the first step in moving forward. Next we will have to create the product.

What does that entail?

To get the Album Ready:

- Weeks of rehearsals, pre-production, recording, mixing and mastering.

-The time it takes to have the album made into a hard copy and then duplicated for all of you wonderful friends/supporters and our future friends.

To help promote the album:

- Planning, developing (location, wardrobe, styling, prop- building), and filming the Music Videos and Photography to help with promoting the Album

- Developing and building up our Social Media presence before we can start touring (website design, online merch store, twitter, facebook, instagram, youtube, etc)

-Getting a marketing team together and booking a tour.

Boom.

With that said, it's going to take a lot of work...that we're MORE than willing to do, but it's possible that the delivery of the prizes may take longer than expected.

So we just want to say that we really appreciate your patience and your enthusiasm in helping to make this work. :D
