It’s not easy being a musician who works outside of popular music. Thankfully Modern Earl has found an audience and we are grateful we live in a time where we can reach thousands of people on-line.   

This work lives because of people like YOU!

Making a record is very expensive and while we make money from touring and CD sales, it is still financially challenging to produce an LP recording at a professional level.   This will be our 5th record and we are very excited this time to bring you a recording from out on the road, a live record.  

In order to continue this work we need your help and we are asking for 6,500euros to help cover the cost of recording the band live, mixing the record,  mastering the record,  and designing the artwork as well as promoting the album. We are part way through the recording process and now we need your help to continue!

Please make a pledge!   EVERY CONTRIBUTION HELPS!

This type of crowdfunding only succeeds if many people become involved. If you want to support our work please tell your friends. Share the music! Send them the link to our kickstarter. Post it on facebook, tweet about it!   Or even send a letter! The more people who hear about it the better. We believe this music is worth it.

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE:

-Why are you asking for 6500 euros?  Well, we are going to make a record that can compete with the standard of music you would hear on the radio or on television. It's common for record labels to spend a few $$$ more on a record. Most of the recording itself is done, this money is used for mixing, mastering, artwork, promotion. 

What happens to my money if you don't reach the goal of 6,500euros?  If you pledge money but the goal isn't met by the end of the 30 days you do NOT get charged. 

-When will the record come out?  We are planning to release this record in May 2016

We really appreciate you all.   Thanks so much!   Modern Earl

Unterstützt MODERN EARL und werdet Teil des Live-Albums! 

Let’s rock it together!  

MODERN EARL nutzen Kickstarter, um ihr erstes Live-Album fertigzustellen. Es ist DIE Gelegenheit für Euch, Teil des mittlerweile fünften Albums von Modern Earl zu werden und einen der begehrten Dankeschön-Preise zu ergattern. Kickstarter ist eine tolle Möglichkeit für Künstler, ihre Projekte umzusetzen. In Amerika ist die Plattform sehr populär und viele kreative Projekte können durch Kickstarter überhaupt erst stattfinden. Grundsätzlich ist es eine Art des Crowdfunding – mit Hilfe einer Menge von Leuten werden die finanziellen Mittel zusammengetragen, um ein Projekt – zum Beispiel ein Album – zu realisieren. Wenn das vom Künstler gesetzte Spendenziel erreicht wird, kann es losgehen. Erreichen wir unser Ziel nicht, wird das Geld gar nicht erst abgebucht. Wir freuen uns, dass unsere Fans und Freunde jetzt Teil unseres Albums werden können! Wir haben keine Plattenfirma, die uns das neue Album produziert oder uns finanziell unterstützt. Wir lieben es, Live-Konzerte zu spielen und mit Euch zu rocken. Deswegen ist es einfach mal Zeit für ein Live-Album!!! - Und für die letzten Schritte brauchen wir Euren Support! Das Konzert, bei dem das Album entstand, war der absolute Hammer. Nun geht es an die Post-Production und um ein paar der Kosten decken zu können und Mastering, Mixing, Artwork und Promotion ermöglichen zu können, brauchen wir eure Hilfe. Für Eure Spende bekommt Ihr natürlich auch was: Vom Download von noch nicht veröffentlichten Songs und handsignierten CDs bis hin zum privaten Hauskonzert – das steht hier alles rechts. Teilt den Kickstarter-Link auf Facebook oder via E-mail! Dankeschön!  

Zahlungsmethoden: Bezahlen könnt Ihr mit Kreditkarte und Unterstützer aus Deutschland können auch bei einer Spende von weniger als 250 EUR  per SEPA-Lastschriftverfahren spenden. Wie oben erwähnt, wird der Betrag erst am Ende der Kampagne abgebucht und nur, wenn das Ziel erreicht wird. Wird das Ziel nicht erreicht, wird kein Geld abgebucht

Risks and challenges

Making a live record is a different experience than a studio record and many more things could go wrong. We are rising to the challange and so far it sounds GREAT! We have great people working with us.
We’ve all worked on a number of records before and know that it is not always a simple process.
But, at the end of the day, we shall overcome whatever challenges we may encounter.
