Meet the band
We are Simonne and The Dark Stars, a collective fronted by classically trained pianist Simonne Weeks and playing music variously described as ‘indie noir’, ‘ethereal folk’ and other variations on the theme.
We’ve been around for six years, and in that time have played many gigs, supported many artists, and even picked up a nomination for Band of the Year in the Brighton Music Awards along the way!
Over to you
We’re now looking to create our first full-length album, and we’d love you to be a part of it. We have been offered a recording opportunity with Marc Waterman in London. You may have heard his successful production of the award-wining, charting-topping album by Elastica. For us to make the most of this amazing opportunity we are turning to YOU!
As a treasured patron of our music, we’d love you to help us capture what you see, hear and feel in our live performances on to CD. We’re keen to make this as collaborative experience as possible, as you can see from the various inclusive rewards on offer. We look forward to welcoming you in to the Dark Stars family!
For us to create and launch this album, we need:
- Recording + Production = £2.5K
- Manufacturing + Printing = £2.5K
- PR Promotion + Distribution = £3.0K
- Kickstarter Fees = £1.0K
TOTAL = £8000
BUT... we are hoping to reach the goal of £3000 and hoping our Dark Stars fan will push this figure beyond our wildest dreams!
If we don't reach our goal we get nothing! Yep nothing.... so please pledge your support TODAY!
Risks and challenges
What is the highest risk? Without funding there will be a huge delay in recording the album. This is massive shame as opportunities like this are one in a life time. If we don't reach our Kickstarter goal we do not get a penny.
What is our biggest challenge? We have such a amazing album ready to be made plus all the amazing rewards. However, with your help we can overcome this challenge of finances and launch this project to whole world!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
