About Chasing Lovely

We write and perform raw, honest songs with a conscience, intermingled with energetic, feel-good tunes. Our band name centers around the definition of lovely:

love·ly [luhv-lee] having a beauty that appeals to the heart or mind as well as to the eye

The Shirt

The design was hand-lettered by Chris Wright at Hand Lettering Co. We wanted something that was unique, stylish and one-of-a-kind so our fans have a shirt they're proud to wear.

We're also excited about working with local Nashville screen printers Friendly Arctic. Each shirt will be individually screen-printed at their shop, using water-based inks (safe and environmentally friendly). As self-proclaimed "T-Shirt Connoisseurs", we hand-selected the Canvas brand based on comfort, aesthetics, and durability. Not only will you be able to wear this shirt often, it will be soft enough to live in ;-)

Why We NEED Your Help

$750 is the minimum amount we need to fund this project. This covers the initial cost of the design, the T-shirts, the screen printing and shipping them out to YOU! It also allows us to have a limited inventory available for fans when we're touring.

As independent artists we want to be able to provide our fans with the merch they want, but there's just no way we can afford to absorb the design and inventory costs up front. Being able to pre-sale through this campaign solves that issue!

What if You Exceed Your Goal?

If we exceed our goal, we'll be able to order more shirts to have at our shows. If we REALLY exceed our goal, that money will help with the many expenses we incur on the road as independent touring musicians.

Other Rewards

In addition to the T-shirt, we have a reward level that includes an autographed copy of our CD and we have a limited reward level that includes an iPhone case. If you choose the iPhone case, be sure to select the reward that has the correct size for your phone. Here are photos of the additional rewards:

Risks and challenges

There is no risk to you as backers if our goal is not met, because no money will be collected. The T-shirt design is already complete, and we've made arrangements with Friendly Arctic to order the shirts and do the screen printing if our Kickstarter campaign is successful. Sizes will be ordered based on the information provided by each backer. Reward levels 4 and above all receive a shirt, which is basically just like pre-ordering!
