HOORAY! You helped us pass our goal. We are extremely excited and grateful. For this last week, everything you contribute just enables us to do even more - more music, more videos, more shows. We've already started working to fulfill your rewards, and we made this video so you can get a sneak peak of a song from the album. THANK YOU. Thank you for contributing and sharing this project. We'll do our best to make you proud.
Welcome! We’re glad you are here.
We are Mideau ("Mid-oh"), we make music. There are two of us – Libbie Linton and Spencer Harrison. We have done separate projects in the past, but have been working together on our debut full-length album for a while, and we couldn’t be any more excited about it how it sounds so far.
We invite you to get involved and be a part of this process with us. And, to thank you for your support, we have a set of rewards to suit all levels. You can get a copy of the album before anyone else, go to lunch with us, get a haircut with Spencer (see video), pick a cover song for us to record, get on our guest list for life, or have us play a show for you. We’ll even help you write that song you've been meaning to finish.
We are making the album that we’ve always wanted to make. As a result, we aren’t cutting any corners and it's turning out better than we could have expected. It's certainly not done yet, but we just know you'll love it. We have been lucky to work on this project with ridiculously talented people. To get to where we are, we have happily invested thousands of our own dollars. The money that we raise will be used only to finish and promote the album, including mixing and mastering of the songs, production of the physical albums, creating music videos to accompany the songs, and marketing. Your support means everything.
For those of you who aren't familiar, Kickstarter is an ALL-OR-NOTHING system. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 in 45 days. If we get $9,999.99, we get nothing and you keep your money.
We can’t do this without you. So please, dear listener, don’t keep this project a secret. Shout it from the rooftops!
And, lastly, know that we love you back.
Here is another tiny sneak of a song to tide you over til we finish the songs.
Risks and challenges
We subscribe to the idea that most things worth doing require undertaking some risk. We knew going into this project that it wasn’t going to be easy. We decided from the very start that we wouldn’t take shortcuts, which means that when it comes down to it - we will always choose to take more time to get things right than to take the easier route.
With any project, there are things that can come up to derail progress for a time. Mastering may be slower than expected, the packaging may be delayed - but these are things that can be handled. One strength we have is that we recognized going into this project the importance of getting the right people on board to help. We trust the talent of the people that are working with us. Many of you have already dedicated your time and talent to this project, and we are extremely grateful for it.
For any band, one of the biggest challenges is to reach your audience. Music is everywhere - it’s a daunting task just to get heard. We recognize that it’s going to require a lot of creativity, time, money, and your support. And we absolutely cannot succeed without you. Our hope is that you know how integral you are to this project, and that goes well beyond Kickstarter. It is our pleasure and responsibility to give you art that means something to you, enough that you are inspired to spread it.
We hope you have enjoyed the little bits songs that you’ve heard thus far. They certainly aren’t done, but we can say that we are extremely excited to soon share a truly completed song with you. And we hope that you can sense our dedication to this project through what we've shared with you so far. We love what we are doing - even when it’s hard. It’s a lot of work, frustrating things occur, and it's a big risk. Rest assured, it’s worth it for us. No matter what the future holds, we will deliver what has been promised to our listeners. There’s nothing we would rather do.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
