5/31 - STRETCH GOAL #2!
We hit the first stretch goal! We know this is last minute, but we're adding a SECOND stretch goal! If we reach $20,000, everyone who pledges at LEVEL FIVE or higher will receive a digital copy of a show that Nikki and the band played at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City shortly after the release of her previous album, The Things We Never Say. The recording is directly off of the board, and has never been heard by anyone outside of the band. And it can be yours! LET'S GO!
5/28 - STRETCH GOALS UPDATE!
We are three days from the end of the campaign, and we're SO CLOSE to our goal that I've added an additional stretch goal.
If we reach $18,000, everyone who has pledged at LEVEL FIVE or higher will receive a digital copy of the demo recordings of the majority of the songs on Human Too! You'll be able to get an inside look at the recording process, listening to the original versions of the songs and seeing the evolution that occurs between the original demos and the final album versions.
So keep spreading the word! We've only got a few days left!
I am embarking on my next music project! Thank you for taking the time to engage and invest your money as supporter of my music and work! I am raising $15,000 in 30 Days, and every dollar counts! “Human Too” will be a collection of 12 songs, being released as four 3-song EPs. Each set of 3 songs will reflect a different part of my sound:
- A set of studio recordings with my band
- A set with me and one of my favorite guitar players, Mark Lettieri from Snarky Puppy
- A set of live recordings with my band
- A set that will be specifically for meditation and soul care
One project with many expressions of artistry.
AFTER 30 DAYS, I EITHER GET ALL THE MONEY OR I GET NONE OF IT….that is how this works. $15,000 is my goal and I MUST reach it in 30 days. We can do this! The money will go towards 3 major areas for the project:
- Studio Time (recording, mixing, and mastering the songs) - 80%
- Paying Stellar Musicians - 10%
- CD duplication - 10%
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Stretch Goals! Once we hit the $15,000 mark we will receive every dollar of funding. We have set a stretch goal of $25,000. If we hit that mark, we will create a video for each song. You will receive these videos ahead of time, and they will also include “Song Stories” about the genesis of each tune on the project. You will get the behind-the-scenes story of how each song came to be, as well as stories about the process of actually making the project.
I love using the Kickstarter platform because it allows ME to engage and share with YOU in the process. It's also a way to keep me encouraged while creating music that matters, knowing that there are a committed group of backers who are cheering me on and ready to receive the finished work.
I am so excited to share this work with you when it is finished. Thank you in advance for giving and supporting. $15K. 30 Days. EVERY PENNY COUNTS!
Risks and challenges
This being Nikki's third go-round on Kickstarter, we are fully confident that our timetable is doable. The goal is to have the project completed before next April, but we believe we've built in plenty of time to cover any unexpected shenanigans that may attempt to slow the process down.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
