New record from Reishi: double-vinyl album of pure Indie Rock'n'roll recorded in a state-of-the-art recording studio!

This project will produce a double vinyl album of original songs that have been recorded with phenomenal musicians in a professional recording studio. It is an independent release project, without the financial backing or artistic censoring of a record label corporation

How will it be done? What will the money be used for?

The recording part has already been done and was paid for out of my own savings. We have already spent over $15000 on hiring the recording studio, engineer and musician costs. The funds from the kickstarter project will go towards doing the mixing, mastering, duplication, artwork and postage, as well as paying for the materials and musicians etc. that are needed as part of the donation packages themselves.

In keeping with the high standards of the recording stage, we would like to maintain this standard right through the mastering and pressing stages, and we will keep all donors updated about where the money goes.

How much money is needed to complete the project?

We have set our fundraising goal at $7500. This will help to finish the project. We hope to raise more than this to help get back some of the money already spent on the project, and to fund taking the project further to pay for tours (musician and equipment costs), and promotion (website and music videos etc.). Thank you for your generosity and making this project possible!

FAQ

  • If we don't reach the target of $7500 at 11:59 greenwich mean time on 28 December then the project is not backed and none of the donations go through!! With Kickstarter it's all or nothing.

  • No, but you can increase your original donation as many times as you like!

  • Naturally the gesture is a kind one. However, we need to reach the target of $7500 by 28 December in order for ALL the pledges to go through. We need to reach this target in order to finish the album, and sending a cheque is not the best way to help us to do this as it will not register on the kickstarter campaign.
