Thanks everyone! Now that we've hit our initial goal, it's time to really shoot for the moon.
We want to bring you even more kick-ass rock and roll. If we reach $7,000, our EP "Human Again" will include the bonus song "Raise the Ceiling" which is a brand new, groovy jam guaranteed to get the party going. Let's make it happen!
Greetings to our fans, friends, family, and new supporters!
Thanks for visiting our Kickstarter page! As most of you know, we love writing and playing music and want to share it with as many people as possible. We’ve each been writing and performing for several years as individuals and in other bands, but we’ve never had a lineup with a group of friends like this before. Signs and Signals began when Jason and Brian first met via Craigslist in March of 2013. The first day they met up, they wrote and completed a song together in under an hour and the magic has continued ever since. After several different lineups, Jason and Brian solidified the project with Jimmy on drums and Dave on bass. Together, the four of us make a raw and energetic 4-piece alternative rock band.
We think what makes this band special is our mission to share music that's genuine, heartfelt, and original. We don't hold anything back artistically and believe that is what will connect people to the music we are sharing with them. Really, with our music, we hope to create a sense of unity and to inspire others through our messages of struggle and healing. We all have things we deal with, but the common thread that we found that ties us together is the music we create. Off stage, we're often introverted — but when the lights come up and our friends and fans start dancing in the crowd, we transform with the music and let it all go. More than anything, we want to share that feeling of freedom with you!
It’s our fans that encourage us to keep this going. For us, writing and performing the music is our therapy, so we can only hope that our fans can feel and connect with the message we are sharing. With the help of our fans, a project like this is totally feasible. We just need your support, whether it be monetary or just getting the word out. So far, our fans' support has gotten us to this point. We can only imagine that with this collaborative effort of family, friends, fans and supporters we can come together to help propel Signs and Signals to new heights. The sky is the limit!
These are all of the necessary parts of the process:
- Recording studio time
- Graphic design (for killer album art!)
- CD duplication
So… that's a lot. And of course, all of these things have fees that add up very quickly. And with the way the music industry and the nature of record labels has changed, it's up to the independent artist to find a realistic way to still create, produce, fund, and share their music with their audience.
That's why we’re asking you to make a donation to help us bring our dream to life! Together, we'll be creating something that lasts forever! A piece of art that you helped create.
We're not just begging for money on the side of the Internet highway. If you decide to donate to this project (yes, please!), each level has a different incentive that you'll receive. We have rewards like Jason’s first ever electric guitar signed by all four band members; Brian’s VOX guitar amp signed and painted by the whole band; a YouTube video cover of a song of your choice, a chance to be in a live acoustic music video at our EP release show after-party, and a ton more!
(There’s so much more. Look over there---->)
For each donation amount listed, you'll also receive everything from the previous levels! If you’re thinking of pre-ordering the music, why not help us out with your donation and get awesome reward packages for it?
We’ll be doing a weekly video blog to update our backers with exclusive news, videos, and photos, so you can see our progress every step of the way. This project is all about connecting with the people who genuinely believe in what we’re doing and support the music we create.
If you're a little short on cash, just spread the word! Tell your friends, and have them tell THEIR friends — because honestly, every dollar counts. The more you share, the more we can create. Kickstarter is an amazing company that offers artists a platform to share our art with the world! With a little help from you, we’ll be able to do just that.
There is only ONE CATCH to all of this — if we are even ONE dollar short of the goal, then the project WILL NOT go through, and we won't receive the funds that you so generously pledged.
We hope you'll contribute if you can! Again, every dollar counts — truly.Thank you in advance for all of your support! It means the world to us!
Now let's do this.
Risks and challenges
We risk not being able to fund our recording and not being able to share our music with people who believe in our message. We've taken the initial steps and invested everything we have to make sure we deliver the best product possible. We know this is a lot to ask of our fans, friends and family but with your help, we'll be able to make this EP happen and deliver everything as promised.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
