Update: Thank You Everybody!!!
Thanks to over 300 backers, we're making an album! I'm beyond grateful for the support and can't wait to get back in the studio!
STRETCH GOAL: $22,000.42
Thanks to you, the pledged goal of $20,000 has been hit and the recording expenses are covered! Hitting the stretch goal will help cover some of the many expenses that go with promoting an album. If you're hopping on board now, I'd greatly appreciate your support in helping us reach the stretch goal and you'll still get the great rewards in return! If you're already a backer, you can keep spreading the word to your friends!
You'll see that I pledged a goal of $20,000. This amount will just cover the expense of finishing the recording of the album. Kickstarter has a ALL OR NOTHING rule, which means that your project receives ZERO funding if the pledged goal isn't reached. I set the goal at that amount because I wanted to make sure the album was finished.
That being said, I'd love to have a budget for marketing, creating a killer website, merchandise and most importantly, putting together a tour with my full band.
While my pledged goal is $20,000, anything above that will go a long way towards providing the resources to fully support the album.
There are 2 ways that you can make a HUGE difference. The first is by choosing the reward level that fits your budget. I'll forever appreciate your support and you'll receive products and experiences related to the album in return. The second way is to help spread the word through email, social media and word of mouth. When you're looking to kill some time at the work place, think of me and that'll help a ton!
Thanks again for taking the time to check out my page. I'd greatly appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you soon.
Risks and challenges
I'm extremely confident that I'll be able to get everyone their goods quickly after campaign is over. Once I have the final totals on how many I need, I'll place the orders on t-shirts, koozies, mugs, etc.
Recording the album obviously isn't as easy as placing an order for koozies. That being said, Matt and I are going to move much quicker with more funds to work with. I've been recording at slower than a snails pace because of the cost. I predict that once the campaign is over, it'd take about a month to finish recording and then a couple more weeks to get CDs manufactured and download cards printed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
