Oct 17th: Now even more is possible!
Paula Cole here. Welcome to the inception of "Raven", my sixth studio album. I've been making albums since 1993 and I can honestly say this is an important one, a brilliant one. I'm now flying solo, off major labels and embracing the reality of going direct to my folks. Using my own funds, I've recorded the basic tracks for "Raven" but now need and ask your participation in helping me complete this work. I have more to do; more recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing. Your involvement is this: you sponsor the album "Raven" here on Kickstarter. By becoming a sponsor/donor you'll pre-order the album, be entitled to unique opportunities and intimate proximity to the music-making . I'm excited about this new chapter of my career and I sincerely hope you'll support me as I go forth. Let's walk this path, make memories and amazing music together. Thank you for your consideration, Paula.
Nuts & Bolts
We're aiming for 37 - 37 days to garner a needed budget to complete this album, giving a fair shot in helping "Raven" fly. Watch the video above! Hear that music underneath? That is but part of a ROUGH mix of one of the new tracks. It's going to be epic. But I need you! Help me complete this album by becoming a donor. Choose from the packages here and contribute. You'll pre-order the downloaded single, cd, get a signed cd, even VINYL (yes, VINYL!) or a hand-painted guitar! And there are a lot of creative packages with opportunities to become a close part of the music or me! 37 days we have to hit our target of $50,000. If we are not successful, your credit card will not be charged. But if we reach our big goal, your credit card will be charged at the closure of successful completion of this campaign. And if by fabulous happenstance we achieve MORE than $50,000 I will absolutely need it and use it in marketing this album. Since I am no longer on major labels, I'm going commando here and need every dollar to reach fan consciousness with the news of "Raven" and the fact that I'm still here, full of heart. And so are YOU. We are here living and loving this life together and I'm incredibly grateful for you.
Please visit my website paulacole.com for tour dates and news. Also connect with me on my Facebook page facebook.com/paulacolemusic as I regularly riff. I am there a lot, sharing the world of P.C. with you. I will be touring and hope to see all of you in the venues, shaking, singing, loving, letting it OUT. I'll be traveling about the States, and hopefully the world, in support of these songs on "Raven".
Should all go well here with the Kickstarter campaign, I will be aiming for a Spring 2013 release of "Raven" and will absolutely be in touch about all the details.
Should you be a very generous donor and be one of the lucky recipients of a larger package (guest-singer, lunch partner, studio visitor, house-concert winner, i.e.) then we will work out the details in a mutually agreeable fashion for a mutually agreeable time. And it will be my honor and pleasure to know you! Physical items won (cds, vinyl, T-shirts, guitars etc.) will be shipped at time of completed manufacturing. Additional postage (anything over regular US domestic cd postage) will be charged to you. I'm estimating March-April 2013 and we will aim to deliver you your "Raven" albums BEFORE release! (Please no file sharing!) Studio visits will occur early months of 2013, possibly even end of 2012 at mutually convenient times. Touring/live opportunities will be given a range of a year+, at mutually convenient times.
Couldn't and wouldn't do it without you
You are life-blood in the process. Thank you.
