Welcome to our Kickstarter! We are Chasing Opal, a husband and wife Indie Folk Duo located in Wilmington, NC. We've recently finished recording our first EP and we need your help! Our EP is a collection of original music, each song telling a different story than the last.
After listening to the songs collectively, we realized the songs were each stylistically different from the other. Which quickly led us to the name of this project. State of Mind.
We are incredibly excited to share this project with you and finally give it the proper release that it deserves. Thank you for making memories with us. Your support is helping fuel our dreams!!

// STATE OF MIND //
We started the recording process at Hourglass Studios in Wilmington, NC in 2014. We originally planned on releasing the EP in the summer of 2015, but due to unforeseen medical reasons... we would like to formally introduce you to Penelope, the polyp. Who, since the summer of 2015, has been camping out on Whitney’s left vocal cord. We did what any good friend would do and selfishly suppressed Penelope’s true potential. Which really means... we FINALLY finished recording!
We destroyed a family of piggy banks to fund the expenses for recording the EP. To save the lives of their cousins, aunts and uncles we are asking for your help. (I REPEAT this is not a ransom letter! We don't want to see any more harm done to defenseless piggy banks.)

Risks and challenges
Once the campaign is successfully funded, we do not anticipate any setbacks. However, in the occurrence that life challenges us, we have assembled a team of tiny elves to perfect the distribution of our product safely to your doorstep! #guaranteed
In the unlikely event that our manufacturers cannot produce our product, my grandmother will personally go to the place of business... need I say more? No matter what, you will always be in the loop! Whether we meet or surpass our goal, one way or another we will find a way to finish this project.
This project (literally) has our blood, sweat and tears in it so we cannot begin to thank you enough for your support and contributions!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
