of Montreal and Jupiter One's Kishi Bashi needs your help to independently release his debut solo album in time for his big tour
Hi! I'm Kishi Bashi and I need your support to independently release my debut album 151a in the spring!
Many of you have my EP, and I'm excited to tell you that I'm finally in the completion stages of my full length solo album. I could definitely use your support to release it in April. It's beautiful and lush, intricate and exciting, and the most interesting music I've ever created in my life. I'm very proud of this album!
I'll be acting as my own record label, and there's thousands of dollars worth of costs associated with promoting the release (not to mention actually creating the album and manufacture the discs). I've been recording at home, but Idecided to mix and master it properly.
I've already been putting everything on my credit card, but I'll be hitting my limit very soon!
Please watch my video, and if you like the music, please make a pledge to buy the album in the future by putting money down today. Of course if I don't reach my funding goal by the end of the time period, no money will ever be charged to you... (that would be sad for me)
I have plenty of fun incentives to get you to pledge, so please read them, and if you have any questions please feel free to write me. Everybody who pledges will get access to exclusives that will feature special videos, acoustic songs, etc. as well as receive the album way in advance of the official release date. My dream is that you'll know the songs by the time you see me on tour!
As you've noticed, I'm in full songsmith mode, so if you want a song for your boyfriend, mistress, small company, dog, nephew, supervisor, then I will do it! And if you want it in time for the holidays, I will deliver :)
Thanks for your interest and support and happy pledging!
Are you really going to play at my house for $1000 and when's the next time you're coming to Toledo?
Yes! I will absolutely guarantee a performance in 2012 at your house. You'll have to be flexible somewhat about when that'll be. For most of the spring into summer, I'll probably be trying to be opening up for a lot of people, so i'll be a slave to their tour schedules. I may blast through Ohio without any chance of playing in your town. Later in the year, I'll be returning to play my own shows that I book, at which point I'll def come and play and hang out :) If you can buy me a flight, there's a better chance at me getting there earlier in the year in a space between opening/support tours. If i'm flying in I'll need some kind of PA or guitar amp. Hope this helps. thanks :)
