Raggy Monster: Farewell Album!

$5,200

WELCOME TO OUR KICKSTARTER!

Thank you so much for being a part of this process with us. We're usually not super thrilled about asking people for money, but then we realized that this is more of a Pre-Sale than asking for donations. In return for you helping us fund the recording process, you receive a bunch of awesome stuff! We are extremely excited to share these amazing songs we've written, and have put so much time and effort into it this Kickstarter, so take a look around!

Who is Raggy Monster?

Raggy Monster is an Indie Alt-Rock/Classical band from West Palm Beach, FL. They were formed in 2011 by Billy Schmidt (Keys/Vocals) and features Rachel DuVall (Lead Vocals), Christian Morgan (Lead Guitar), Sage Duvall (Lead Drums), and Miles Harris (Lead Bass). 

Their powerful live performances have earned them great success in Florida, including shows like Sunfest (opened for Train), Moonfest (opened for Bow Wow Wow), and Respectable Street's 25th anniversary (opened for The Misfits). 

The name comes from Billy's imaginary friend he created when he was 4 years old. The original drawing is framed in his hometown of Mount Dora, FL.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk in this whole process is not meeting our Kickstarter goal, which would mean we don't receive any funding, and the album would get pushed back for a few months at the very least.

We begin recording on March 23rd, and should be in and out of the studio for a few weeks after that. We'll be posting updates throughout the process that you can only see if you're part of our team that funded the album. We still have a bunch of things we need to get done, including finishing the album art/design, getting the shirts printed, and then after we finish recording, we will have a tremendous amount of work to do to get the album pressed and make sure you all recieve your rewards, so please be patient. Thank you soo much for your donations and for helping us spread the word about this Kickstarter!

*Travel expenses not included. Additional shipping expenses may be added in rare cases.
