Since the release of our EP last May and the overwhelming response to the single, "Closure," we've continued to write new material.  With a lot of new material in-hand we feel like we now have a collection of songs worthy of a full-length record full of all-new material.  We've demoed the songs, secured the location and musicians, and lined up everything necessary to make this record happen.  We'll be heading into the studio at the end of May while this Kickstarter is still running!

We're doing this record independently, which means we get no label support (read - money!).  There's a lot of freedom that comes from making an independent record, but obviously coming up with the money to make it happen is not easy.  We've saved our pennies, negotiated the best deals we can with our producer, additional musicians, and everyone else involved in making the record happen.  After all of the money-saving techniques we can muster and realizing that selling our body organs to raise the remainder is not a viable option, we're about $7000 short of making the record that we feel is worthy of hitting your ears.

That's where you come in!  You are our record label!  With any pledge to our Kickstarter campaign - from pre-ordering the record all the way up to being the Executive Producer of the record - we're going to give you exclusive behind-the-scenes studio footage and material via Kickstarter.  Plus you'll get some really cool rewards.  Just check out the list on the right side of the page to see which reward you would like and pledge to make this record AWESOME!

FAQ's:

When will I get my download?  The download of the record will be available in mid- to late-August.

When will I get my (insert name of physical reward here)?  All physical rewards will ship in early September.  We'll keep the Kickstarter page updated with any pertinent info.

What's your favorite snack food?  As a band we prefer most types of Oreos (especially birthday cake Oreos), Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Nutella.  If you can make an unlimited supply of Nutella Reese's Cups we will consider making you a permanent member of the band.

I don't like going to shows alone.  Can I get a 2nd ticket to the CD release show?  Sure!  Just pledge $25 more than the reward that gets you your ticket, shoot us a message saying "Hey! I pledged $25 extra and I want a 2nd ticket so I can take that hot girl/guy* I know to your show!" and we'll throw a 2nd ticket into your package of goodies for said hot girl/guy!  *There is no need to verify the hotness of said girl/guy.  In fact, there is no need for them to be hot at all.  We do request that they be human beings, though.  Pretty sure the venue is anti-pet.

I don't live near Tennessee. How can I take advantage of my ticket to the CD release show?  We will have an exclusive live internet feed set up for any out-of-towners who can't make the trip for the show.  If we notice a trend of having large numbers of people from the same area getting tickets to the show we will do our best to set up an additional CD release show in your area.

I'm new to Penny Rae. Got any music I can check out to make sure you guys can carry a tune and I'm not investing in a Milli Vanilli record? I felt so burned when I owned their record back in the day and found out they couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. Not making that mistake again! Heck yeah! We totally get it (though we totally admit to jamming to "Girl You Know it's True" once or twice in the recent past). Check out our Youtube page:  https://youtube.com/pennyraemusic.  Or, just check out this video of "Closure", the single from our last record:

Risks and challenges

While we have laid out timelines for this record that allow for plenty of mishaps along the way, there is always the risk of the project taking longer than expected. In the event that it does, we will update via Kickstarter and keep you in the loop each step of the way. (For the record - tracking is ahead of schedule at the moment!)
