UPDATE:

WOW.

Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, we met our initial goal of $8,000 in a little over three days. That's remarkable. Your support humbles me, and I'm so excited that this project will be funded and that I will be able to bring you the full-length record I've been wanting to make for some time now. The talented musicians I'm working with, my bandmates, are also very excited to get this project underway. Surveys will be sent out to backers to collect information for getting your rewards in late July.

But we're not done! We still have plenty of time before this Kickstarter campaign closes, so please continue to share this with your friends and family. The more funds we raise, the better our product will be.

Extended goals:

  • At $10,000: we'll be able to afford better mastering
  • At $12,000: we'll get wider distribution and cool cover art
  • At $15,000: more studio time will mean more tracks, for a longer album

In general, the more studio time we can afford, the less we have to rush through these recordings, and the better the album will sound.

Thanks to you guys, this is happening! It's official. Let's make it great. :)

Love,

Reina

REINA DEL CID & THE CIDIZENS are finally hitting the studio and recording a full-length album. We've got the songs written, the studio time booked, and the game plan: all we need is your support. Check out the video to see where Kickstarter funds are going, and why your support is so important to us. Hope you like the homemade stop motion animation that took us forever and a day but was totally worth it if it makes you smile! Check out the rewards panel to the right to find out what sort of awesome prizes you'll get for  pledging. 

Kickstarter in a nutshell:

--If our goal isn't met by the deadline, we get no money and backers are not charged. Be sure to share this video with your friends to help us meet the goal in time!
--If we're fortunate enough to reach our goal, pledging is still open and rewards will continue to be available to new backers until the project reaches its deadline. 

Toni, Chris, Clay, and I are absolutely FLOORED about this album, and I can't wait to share it with you.

Love,

Reina del Cid
