Desoto Jones is ready to record and release their second full length album and would like to get friends and fans involved.
Desoto Jones has been writing and performing as a band for just shy of a decade and has always been lucky enough to have support from fans to keep the band going. There hasn't been any recording budgets or per diems or subsidized merchandise - fans and friends showing up to shows and buying merch has been what makes Desoto's music possible. We want to invite you on board to become a part of the process and earn cool bonuses for caring about us! This is why we have chosen Kickstarter for our next full length album.
We'd like to thank you all, in advance, for your contributions to this project. We also appreciate your help in spreading the word to others to make sure our album is realized. In order to thank you, we decided to offer some bonuses to everyone who contributes. They are as follows:
First, everyone who contributes will be featured in the liner notes of the album. This album, and everything we've done up to this point, are only possible because of those who support us and we are eternally grateful for that.
Those who purchase the $20-$30 tiers will receive a bonus B-side from the album and those who purchase a $30 or more tier will receive TWO bonus B-sides!
We will also be using Ustream to broadcast exclusive acoustic sets via the internet to all who contribute. The dates and times of these will be updated once the project is underway.
Lastly, all contributors are invited to attend an exclusive release/listening party with the band to celebrate the success of this project and the release of the album. The date and location are yet to be determined, so stay tuned for details on that.
We are so incredibly excited about this group of songs and can't wait to be able to share them with you. We think they define who we are as a band now while remaining true to what we have done in the past. These songs are our best material to date - something really special. We appreciate anything you can contribute and look forward to you being a part of this project.
Your friends eternally,
Trade secret, friends. Try skipping a shower or two, though.
