We've been working on our new album, "There Is a Season" for about a year now. We've written the music, spent many hours in the studio recording it, and even more hours obsessively listening to it and tweaking mixes. We've reached the mastering phase and are a little short on funds to get us across the finish line.
For those of you not familiar with the recording process, mastering is the phase of production where engineers with lifetimes of experience and speakers that cost more than some cars put the final polish on the tracks. It's a crucial step in the process and one that, as an artist, you don't want to get wrong. We've already had 4 of the 12 tracks mastered and one of them, a song called "Chamomile," was even a finalist for Best Folk Song at the New Mexico Music Awards in 2019.
After mastering, the final phase is the actual production of the album. That involves getting it to all the digital outlets (e.g. iTunes, Spotify, Google, etc.) as well as producing physical copies (CDs) to put in the hands of those who like their music to have a tactile element to it as well.
We're so close to making this album a reality and would love it if you would partner with us in making it happen.
For those of you unfamiliar with us, here's a taste of what we sound like:
Risks and challenges
We don't foresee a lot of risks involved the project at this point. The vast majority of the process is already done and paid for. We've already recorded and produced two EPs as The Kipsies and many more with a previous incarnation of the band. So, we're pretty experienced with how much it's going to take to get the album finished. We feel like $1500 is a safe number to get it done when factoring in the costs involved for Kickstarater, the rewards, etc.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
