Last winter, I (GennaRose) wrote a collection of narrative ballads based on traditional forms and tropes. These eight songs include tales of shapeshifting sweethearts, lumberjack legends, carnivals and eclipses and murderous revenge. They are steeped in folklore, yet driven by modernity. Most importantly, they're just here to tell you a good story.
Now, I've assembled an incredible lineup of today's finest folk/Americana musicians to help me bring these new ballads to life. Each song will be co-written and performed by a different band, culminating in a full-length anthology album. So who's on board? WELL let me tell you:
- Arc Iris
- Dietrich Strause
- Peter Mulvey
- Lonely Heartstring Band
- Lula Wiles
- Jefferson Hamer
- Rose Polenzani
- Lissa Schneckenburger & Corey DiMario
For those of you familiar with these artists, you already know how incredible this lineup is. For those of you who aren't already fans-- well, "you're in for a treat" would be an understatement.
BUDGET & PROCESS:
This campaign seeks to raise $8,000 to bring the album to life. There are SO many factors and fees that go into making a record. These include:
- Studio rental & recording
- Hiring an engineer
- Mixing & mastering
- Album art & design
- Printing & duplication of the album
- Kickstarter fees
- Reward production costs & postage
The plan is to go into the studio in the fall to record, and release the album this coming winter, 2018. Woo! Big things are happening! And you can be part of it!
EVERY backer gets a pre-released copy of the album as soon as it's ready, plus updates and behind-the-scenes content along the way. As a backer YOU are making this album possible-- and in doing so, you become part of the family creating this music. We can't wait to share these songs with you, but we can't do this without your help. THANK YOU!!!
Risks and challenges
Kickstarter is all-or-nothing-- this means that if the $8,000 goal isn't fully reached, we don't get any of the money, no one's cards are charged, you don't receive your rewards, and the album doesn't get made. Which would be no fun for anyone! Let's make sure this doesn't happen.
Otherwise, nothin's gonna stop your reward from getting to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
