SARAH TRACEY'S SUPER-SPY MISSION:
Dear Friends and Fans,
Evil Corporate Record Executives may be trying to kill great songwriting and musical passion in favor of style-over-substance bubblegum pop, mass-produced Radio Disney stars and Reality-Show Talent Competitions--- but I won't submit to a career of Pop Doom!
I'm finally recording my debut full-length album and it's shaping up to be a feast for the ears of great stories, sultry and stylish musicianship, and true soul.
You probably know me as an average, ordinary, unassuming singer/songwriter. What you may not know is that by night I'm undercover as a Special Triple Agent Super-Spy! My arch nemesis, Loco Caliente, is the most evil corporate thug of them all, and he commands his all-powerful satellite network from his headquarters: a private yacht that sails around Manhattan. I've gone undercover and infiltrated his lair, with a mission to take him down once and for all and Save the Universe from a continuous stream of Katy Perry music and unfortunate fashion trends!
DO we really want to live in a world of homogenous, heartless, soul-less pop music? I didn't think so.
SO, I'm taking a stand! I've committed to making this new album without the support of a corporate conglomerate calling the shots- but rather with the help of a great new independent label that believes in my vision of the music I want to make. They're giving me an AMAZING head start: they have offered to finance ALL the studio time, production, engineering, mixing, and mastering of the record- 90% of what goes into the final product. Yes, I'm a lucky girl!
'THEN WHY does Sarah Tracey need my support?' you're probably thinking...
Well, here's the deal: some expenses are left to me- like paying my band, shooting the album cover, hiring a designer to create the artwork, a re-design and re-launch of my website, the duplication of physical CDs (and, my dream for this project- vinyl), and a promotional campaign to give the record the push it needs to be a success. Whew. Overwhelming. SO, I need your help. And that is why I am partnering with a Kickstarter to raise the funds.
With their help, I am attempting to raise $4000 in 31 days from the generosity of all of you.
I would never expect something for nothing though, because that's not the Super-Spy way :-)
So, for every level you pledge I am offering up delicious prizes! Pledges can be anywhere from $5-$5000... and, depending on your pledge, you'll be rewarded everything from copies of the finished album to bottles of limited-edition 'Que Sarah Syrah' wine; to burlesque dancing lessons from NYC's hottest all-girl burlesque troupe THE HOT BOXES! I'm offering private wine tastings led by experts! A romantic dinner for two at one of Manhattan's most charming wine bars! I've got Broadway theater tickets! Earn 'Rockstar Superspy Agent Status' with a recording session at New York's famous Cutting Room Studios! Would you like your own private chef preparing a gourmet multi-course dinner for 6 in your home, complete with wine pairings for every course? I've got that for you too! I'll bake you brownies, make you mix cds of some of my favorite music, and send you awesome obscure vintage books. I'll play a house concert for you, or sing at your cousin's bar mitzvah, or write a song to help you propose to your beloved! I will do whatever it takes to make this happen, because- here’s the catch- the project will ONLY be funded if I meet my fundraising goal.
That's right--- if we don't hit my goal by my deadline, your credit card will NOT be charged, no prizes will go out, and I'll resign myself to a life of pink sequins and opening for oldies bands in casinos and county fairs. I will be forced to retire as an Undercover Jet-Setting Super-Spy, and Loco Caliente will win once and for all, and you will have done nothing whatsoever to stop it!
So, will you please help me SAVE THE UNIVERSE????
Pledge today! Let's do this!!!
