About

I'm Kady Rain, and I've had a dynamite year, with the Austin Chronicle proclaiming me "Austin's Pop Queen" and ACL picking me to perform during the second weekend of their festival, alongside such iconic acts as Lizzo, Childish Gambino, Cardi B, Robyn and many more. But making music is expensive, particularly if you're an independent artist like myself, so I'm looking for your help funding my first ever vinyl release for my two new singles "You Got Me" and "Lovestruck."

While I've had success with previous singles like "R.A.D. Moves," which NPR singled out as a Song of the Summer, those have all been digital releases. For ACL, I wanted to provide something unique and permanent, which is why I've hired the Austin based company Gold Rush Vinyl to manufacture a full color 7" of "You Got Me" and "Love Struck" on colored vinyl.

The sleeve art for my double A-side

Both "You Got Me" and "Lovestruck" are fully recorded and produced, and I've been playing them on my recent sets at Hot Summer Nights, Queer Riot and beyond. I just need your help funding the vinyl manufacturing as well as the marketing and promotion for the release. This is what the cost breakdown looks like for this release:

Vinyl Manufacturing= $3k
Mixing & Mastering= $1k
PR campaign, 3 months= $2k
Non-com radio campaign, 3 months= $2k
Miscellaneous advertising & promotion= $2k

The sad reality of making music in this day and age is that streaming provides basically no income, so artists have to rely on help from fans more than ever before to keep making the music they love. Getting booked on ACL is a dream come true but for that dream to continue, I have to keep the momentum going and your help will be a major part of that!

While there are always risks and challenges in the music business, most of the work for these singles is already done, including the recording, production and design, and the funding will go straight to manufacturing and then promotion. With Gold Rush being local, I'll be able to get the vinyl directly without worrying about shipping and then immediately send it off to all of you. Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

The largest risk with this project is the vinyl manufacturing process, but we trust our manufacturing partner and they've ensured us they'll have no problems meeting our timeline at the quality level we need. We will then work quickly to fulfill every order and get your vinyl shipped to you.
