Who We Are:

Hello! We’re Camille and Kennerly (The Harp Twins)! You might know us from our viral harp metal, rock, and soundtrack covers on YouTube like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and Game of Thrones. We also compose Nordic-inspired original songs. We have over 90 million views on YouTube and almost 2 million followers across our social media sites. We tour full-time as a harp duo and are changing the world's perception of the harp with our radical duet harp revolution!

What We're Creating:

We’re so excited to announce that we’re creating a comic book: Legend of the Shaders! We’ve brought in talented comic writer Dirk Manning and amazing artist K. Lynn Smith to help bring our ideas to life.

Legend of the Shaders is a beautifully illustrated, full-color, 24-page comic about Nordic identical twin sisters, and their enigmatic cat Grayling, who discover that their harp-bard life is not as simple as they thought it was… and that the Shader creatures of legend might not be myth after all.

The comic is written, the art is done, and we couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out! Now we want to get Legend of the Shaders into print production. Now here’s where YOU come in. We have this Kickstarter running from November 1-30 where you can get in on the ground floor. Nordic November! We have a ton of fun pledge levels – including an exclusive Kickstarter-only cover as well as other limited time rewards. So please join us for the beginning of this Nordic-inspired adventure!

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. You basically pre-order the project (in this case, our Legend of the Shaders comic and other related items) and if we make our funding goal here, then you'll be charged your pledge amount and receive your items when available. If the goal is not met you won't be charged anything. If we surpass our funding goal, then awesome Stretch Goal rewards will be unlocked! Our campaign will run November 1-30, 2018.

The comic will be available in print and digital formats.

Risks and challenges

We don’t foresee any risks to this campaign as the comic has been written and 95 percent of the artwork has been created. We are simply waiting to reach our goal and then send the files to the printer upon the successful completion of this campaign. The only possible challenges that we could foresee are printer / shipping delays. We (Camille and Kennerly) will be fulfilling campaign orders ourselves and we will do our absolute best to get them shipped out ahead of schedule. We will be in touch with regular updates to make sure that you are kept "in the loop" throughout the whole process. Our backers deserve the absolute best! You’re the berries!
