WE DID IT!!! NOW LET'S GO FOR THE STRETCH GOAL

Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, Shadowlands debut album will become a reality!    

Through pledging and sharing the campaign link with friends and family, we met our first goal in only 11 days! We are making it happen!   

But the campaign isn't over yet. Some of you have asked if you can still participate in the project and the answer is Yes, we are moving ahead!   

We have set a stretch goal of $12,000 and if we reach our goal before the closing date May 17th, we will upgrade every premium to include complete album lyrics - for everyone who has participated in our Kickstarter campaign.    

Here is how we have earmarked the extra funds:   

THE STRETCH   

  • $1000 will add track 11 to the album 
  • $1000 will add track 12 to the album 
  • $1000 will be going into making our first music video. 
  • $1000 will initiate our Pacific Coast album promo tour   

Those of you who had been thinking of pledging but didn't quite get around to it, now is the time!   

Thank you sooooo much!!!

We want to capture the true essence of what Shadowlands has become – BUT WE NEED YOU!

Dear Friends, Families and Supporters!

Shadowlands has had an amazing start and we have met incredible support wherever we have gone. In spite of our early stage as a band we have already achieved good word-of-mouth, radio airplay and festival bookings.

And having an album has now become crucial to our further course as a band, an album that will enable us to reach out to more listeners and get more of that gigging that we so love to do.

Last November we teamed up with producer and studio owner Damon Castillo and began recording four songs. We found that magic was happening in the studio and that the recording process was infusing our songs with an exciting, vibrant sound!

This is music we want you to hear in the hope that it will touch your hearts!

Why we need you:

Making an album as an unsigned band is far from inexpensive and we want to give you the best possible finished product.

We are not just asking you for money. As a backer you will be rewarded with project updates, pictures and videos - for backers only.

In addition we have created a list of special rewards that we think you will be excited to own. Take a look and see what appeals to you!

Here is what your contributions will go to: 

  • Studio hours 
  • Engineering 
  • Guest musicians 
  • Album mastering 
  • Photography and Artwork 
  • Promotion Video (EPK)
  • Manufacturing of CDs

Remember that if we do not reach our Kickstarter goal, we will get none of the donations and your cards won’t be charged. With Kickstarter it’s All Or Nothing! 

Should we raise more money than our goal, this will go into promoting the album.

We simply promise to work hard to make the best album we can… an album you will be proud to be a part of!

With your help the Shadowlands debut album will be ready in November, 2014.

By backing us you are making a BIG difference. We are forever grateful for your support! 

 With Love, 

Mark, Karoline, Bob and Wendy 

Shadowlands

Risks and challenges

We don’t really see any obstacles standing in our way of making this album. We could be in need of more time, but we will do everything we can to keep it within the time frame.
Should any other obstacles come up we will face them with strength, love and courage!
