HELP STRATOSPHEERIUS MAKE A KILLER VIDEO!

Dear friends,

Stratospheerius would like to make our first professional video and we need your help!  We are thrilled that in this day and age, it’s easier than ever to make you feel like you are a part of our band. In the past, record companies would finance an album, video, or promotional campaign, and in exchange would dictate all the elements of the project, from song choice to production to marketing. These days, YOU have the chance to actually BE our record company! We have just released our new CD, “The Next World," and it has been garnering amazing reviews. Here are just a few quotes:

 “A leading contender for the best rock album of 2012."

 -Angel Romero http://progressiverockcentral.com/2012/05/04/a-superbly-gifted-violinist/ 

“Tightly crafted studio pieces including intricately produced vocal articulations, electronic effects, and multi-tracked instrumentation…It's an album with bright, vibrant tones from four players who aren't competing, but rather congealing.”

-Wesley Britton http://www.seattlepi.com/lifestyle/blogcritics/article/Music-Review-Joe-Deninzon-Stratospheerius-3477902.php

 “Every member plays with passion and invention. Budynek is tight and bright in rhythm mode and soars when the song calls for it. Bishop, is a flat out low end monster and perfectly matched with the fiery Padmore. She is that drummer every musician wants in their ensemble: a player that can blow your mind one moment, then tenderly hold your hand the next. As for Deninzon - the sounds he gets out of that violin are inhuman. His speed, precision, color, and character are just off the charts!” 

-John Wilcox http://progsheet1.hypermart.net/cdrz.html

Our album recently made the national top 10 on jambands.com top picks! We want to capitalize on this success and make a professional video with a world-class director and the best production we can get. The goal of this video is to help promote the band and get us on shows like SNL, Jimmy Fallon, Conan, etc. We are also looking to play more international festivals and open for major acts. In order to do this, we’re going to need your help. Our goal is to raise $5000 to produce a video for our title track, “One Foot in the Next World.” You can listen to the song for FREE here. Even $10 from you will help significantly in reaching this goal, and you will get some amazing prizes in exchange for your contribution. Please join us and help Stratospheerius get to THE NEXT WORLD!! 

 Rock on! 

 -Joe, Aurelien, Lucianna, and Jamie
