Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Thank you for visiting this page, and watching our NEW AND IMPROVED UPDATE VIDEO above! It has taken us over a year to record, mix, and master our new album, “Petits Bisous,” and we cannot wait to share it with you!!!! Therefore, it is with love and gratitude that we are writing to you today to ask for your help.
A little about us:
Erin and Her Cello is a NYC-based band led by singer/cellist/songwriter Erin Hall. We have delighted audiences for the past seven years with songs that are witty, charming, hilarious, and sincere.
We are returning to Kickstarter since it was instrumental (haha) in getting our music video for “Sober” financed in 2011. You were so amazing to us-- we raised over $1500 in 24 hours to make a video that we are extremely proud of. (THANK YOU!)
Today we are coming to you on a much larger scale. Releasing an album independently involves much more than meets the eye. We want our songs to be heard, and seen. Therefore, we will also be releasing two charming new music videos with “Petits Bisous!” In order to get our music to you, and to the world -- we are asking for your help to fund the following:
Physical Production of our CD: $2000
Marketing and Press: $3000
Artwork & Graphic Design: $2000
Two Music Videos: $4000
Kickstarter 5% fee: $500 (of a $10,000 goal)
Amazon 5% credit card fee: $500 (of a $10,000 goal)
GRAND TOTAL: $12,500.00
With YOUR HELP-- we can do this ! ! !
With your generous donation we are thrilled to offer you one-of-a-kind E&HC SWEET TREATS! Starting with... TWO TRACKS FROM PETITS BISOUS ! ! !
On the right of this page, you will see various donation levels, including fun prizes that will help keep us on your minds, in your bag, and even in your glass! For example, the first song of the album is called “Rebound Magnet,” and you, too, can have your very own Rebound Magnet!
Is your vision starting to fade? The second song, “The Doctor,” (did you have a listen above?) won’t have you seeing straight -- but our E&HC-ing Eye Chart will help you see the light! How about that on a bag, or a poster? Or what about your own E&HC-ing Eye Chart FLASK-- now that will keep you out of trouble!
One last ♩, we consider ourselves so lucky to have music. We could never live without writing it, perfecting it, and PLAYING IT FOR YOU. We consider every performance a true gift, and to have the opportunity to record these songs was pure joy.
With that said, please help us share it with you. And others. And remind ourselves that it’s okay to laugh a little bit with music, to be playful and joyous in music, and to support music.
We couldn’t do it without you.

Risks and challenges
Once we are successful with our campaign, (thanks to YOU,) the biggest risks we face will involve PR and promotion. We want to grow and expand our audience, and that will happen with the right publicity! Therefore, post production--we will be working extremely hard, along with others, to get the promotion we need and deserve!!!
