Kickstarter fund for KiloWatts's new album 'Acceptitude'

Hello folks!

KiloWatts here.  Thanks for checking out the project! 

UPDATE #1: Goal reached, "Meta-goals", and new rewards

UPDATE #2:  Meta-goals reached, new meta-goal

UPDATE #4:  T-shirts!  Different ordering instructions

This is a Kickstarter page to raise funds to print and release my new album 'Acceptitude'.  Bluetech and I had great success using Kickstarter to fund the Invisible Allies release, so I'm doing it again.  I've been working hard on this, and I'm super excited for you to hear it.  This is a very special release for me, with some pieces I've been conceptualizing for years.  The return to the piano has been a breath of fresh air, and the process of integrating it with the digital landscape has been a ton of fun.  The CD will be printed on recycled cardstock in full color.  Phidelity is doing the artwork and creating some amazing sandblasted glass pieces to accompany the release.  (See below for some initial photos)

Keep in mind this is the ONLY time the glass pieces will be available!  They are available at the $100 mark and above.

When you contribute to the fund, you'll receive your items a few weeks before the official release date in April.  No money will be withdrawn from your account until the conclusion (March 22nd).  After this, the official release date will be April 22nd.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO

After the fund ends, I will contact you directly about domestic and international shipping costs.  You'll have the option of shipping priority, insurance, and delivery confirmation.  I'll send a separate payment request to cover the cost.


We're especially excited about the glass sandblasted pieces that accompany the CD.  Check out some preliminary photos in the making:

Thanks to Parkerism for the help with the video!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support in making this happen.

Peace and blessings,
Jamie
