About this project

Howdy folks! We're the Drifter Sisters, and we're here on Kickstarter today to tell you about recording our Debut Album!

ABOUT US

The Drifter Sisters is an acoustic country music trio based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. We got our start about a year ago, playing local farmers' markets and parties. Over the course of the last year we've grown enormously as a band, increasing our audience and expanding and perfecting our repertoire. Thanks to the support of our community and fans, we've put together something we feel proud to share with the world in the form of a CD Album; all that remains is to record it!

We've raised about half the funds we'll need to make this album a reality. We're asking YOU, fellow music lovers, to help get the Drifter Sisters into the studio and our music onto a CD.

The more we raise, the better of an album we can make. More studio time means more tracks, more mixing, more guest musicians, and more fun for YOU in the finished product!

THE REWARDS

There are a wide variety of rewards available, depending on how much you're able to contribute. Every dollar counts, so even $1 earns you our undying gratitude <3

We're also offering some stuff that will only be available through Kickstarter! Here are some examples:

For an extra special "Thank You!" from the Drifter Sisters, you can receive a beautiful thank-you card handmade by us! Each card will be a completely unique work of art we hope you will treasure forever.

A very special video for the Birthday Girl or Boy of your choice, a Birthday Song from us! Just let us know a name and a date, and we'll send you a link to a unique, personalized birthday greeting video from the Drifter Sisters!

If birthdays aren't your thing, you can get your very own Drifter Sisters ring tone for your cell phone! Choose from a range of special ringtone songs with Drifter Sister style. Check back soon to hear samples of the options!

Country music in a digital age! For those of you who can't always make it to see us perform, here's your change to have the Drifter Sisters come to you! We're offering a 45 minute Concert via Skype, which you can see from anywhere with an internet connection!

A very special treat we're offering is to play a House Concert for your friends and family! Unfortunately this reward is limited to houses in our area. Contact us if you're interested in this reward!

Finally, the Grand Prize: A Lifetime Free Pass (+1!) to all Drifter Sisters Concerts!!!

Risks and challenges

Recording an album is an exciting but risky business. Studio time is expensive, and an inexperienced recording artist doesn't always know how to put that time to good use. Although inexperienced in the studio ourselves, we're fortunate to have the help of our producer, a veteran recording artist who has been making records for nearly forty years. She'll be coaching us before and during the recording process, making sure we stay on schedule.

With our own good common sense and the support of our community, there's no reason we can't be successful in this recording endeavor. Having a CD will enable us to increase our reach through radio promotion, bringing us to a wider audience.

Thanks for dropping by!
