Dear friends, family, curious on-lookers, etc....
As you can imagine, the process of producing a physical, recorded work of music takes time, creativity, and money! We have made the time to get together for rehearsals and brainstorm what this process will entail. We are tapping into our creative minds this very second, considering how best to draw each one of you into this project. That brings us to this- the money aspect is awkward to address, but difficult to overlook! In order to accomplish the goal of releasing a record, we are shooting for $2000. Here's how it breaks down financially when it comes to producing a vinyl record...
$790 - Vinyl manufacturing/shipping
$238.55 - Lacquers/ vinyl masters
$ 58.30 - Polyethylene bags
$224.02 - Record jackets
$ 38.83 - Mailing boxes
$210.00 -Shipping records to stores for sale
These charges total $1559.70. With a portion of the remainder amount of $440.30 we are attempting to raise, we will be paying a friend to facilitate our recording process so we can focus on instrumentation. Finally, the last of the money will be used to ship out the rewards to you, the "backers".
Needless to say, we need your help to partner with us to make this dream come alive. If we meet our goal, you can rejoice with us and smile with great satisfaction. The bad news is, if we don't receive the entire goal amount during the 30-day drive, the campaign will be over and no money will be available. We are going to go forward in confidence with our goal in mind, so we invite you to respond! We feel so passionately about this music and desire to share the sense of community with all who desire to join us. Friends and family- unite! Don't forget, strangers are welcome to donate, too! By the way,
EVERY BACKER WILL BE MENTIONED BY NAME IN THE LINER NOTES!
We believe that in a community effort, gifts, both miniscule and massive, are a sacrifice worthy of mention! We thank you in advance for your love...
