Lovestarrs - 2 EPs + Debut Album

Introduction 

Hello you lovely human beings! It's Sarah and Hamish here aka Lovestarrs!

www.soundcloud.com/planetlovestarr

First of all, thank you for visiting our Kickstarter page, and thank you for your continued love and support, it means the absolute world to us.

Over the past couple of years, we have been busy bees working on our debut album in Stockholm and LA. It's called 'Planet Lovestarr'. We are VERY excited about it, extremely proud of it and we think you're going to LOVE IT!!! To add icing on the cake, we also have enough material for 2 brand new 4 track EP's called 'Andromeda' EP and 'Cassiopeia' EP, which we would like to release prior to our debut album! Yay! Let's all do a dance.

Our label - DEFDISCO 

We have signed to an indie label called DEFDISCO. They are fantastic people and extremely passionate about our music, which is the most important thing. We all share the same vision and the same goal, that is, for Lovestarrs to be a well known and respected pop duo. We really have found an amazing home there! Shout out to DEFDISCO!

Why crowdfunding?

So you may ask 'if you have signed to an indie label, why are you using crowdfunding'? Well, that is a good question, and one which we will answer for you...

Many of you will remember us as The Good Natured. What amazing times and experiences we had when we signed to Parlophone/EMI in 2011. Unfortunately, to cut a long story short, we lost our debut album masters (masters = recordings) to EMI when we parted ways with them, as we couldn't afford to pay EMI back for them. EMI continue to own The Good Natured record. We certainly learnt a lot from this experience. It made us a lot stronger and more determined to succeed, doing things our way.

This time, we want to make sure WE own the masters to our songs, so we have complete control and ownership of our music. We would like to own the song masters, and license them to our label DEFDISCO.

Producers

In order to do this, we must pay the incredible producers who we have made this record with. They are:

Olle Blomstrom

Kristofer Ostergren

Cameron Jaymes

Tim Larsson

Tobias Lundgren

This is where YOU come in, the people we love the most. We need your love and support to help us to raise the money we need to pay our producers, and to mix and master the record. We will then license it to DEFDISCO, who will promote our music by hiring PR and UK and US Radio Pluggers, and sync our music to TV and film.

Release Schedule

If we reach our goal, we will release:

-EP 1 - 'Andromeda' - Spring 2016

-EP 2 - 'Cassiopeia' - Summer 2016

-Debut Album - 'Planet Lovestarr' - Summer 2016

'That's so far away' we hear you say! It seems like it, but we can explain...

This gives us a month from now to raise the funds we need, then until the end of 2015 to add finishing touches to our record, mix and master it, film all of our videos and get everything ready for January when we will be taking it to PR and Radio (PR and Radio need a couple of months notice prior to releasing music), ready for release in Spring! Once we start, we won't stop, the music and videos will just keep on coming!

Prizes

To say thank you for being the best people in the world, we have a tonne of prizes (on the right hand side) that we have put together for backers. We think they are awesome and we really hope you like them too! We want to meet and talk to as many people as possible- the prospect of hanging out with you guys makes us so excited and happy!

Other Ways You Can Help 

Some people just can't contribute financially, but that doesn't mean you can't help:

-Tell your friends, family, co-workers, pet dogs, cats, hamsters and birds about Lovestarrs! 

-Share our Kickstarter on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other such social media sites!

Final Note

We love you guys so much - thank you for being here and helping in any way you can. Together, we hope we can get 2 EP's plus our debut album (feels like a long time coming) into this world, retaining complete control of our music. 

Hugs and kisses,

Lovestarrs

Xoxoxoxo

Risks and challenges

We have written and recorded both our EPS and our debut album. The only things left to do are:

-Add some chocolate sprinkles to the record (a few more vocals, instruments etc)
-Mix the record
-Master the record

All our producers are aware of the Kickstarter campaign, and are expecting us to be in the studio by the end of the year to finish it off!

There could be delays due to illness or not being able to get the studio time, but this is very unlikely as the producers are all expecting us!

We are mastering the record at Metropolis Music who are also expecting the record. There may be delays if they are very busy and we can't get a mastering slot by the end of the year, but this again is extremely unlikely.

Bring on Spring 2016! :-)
