About this project

$7,770

Threeds needs a CD! We have really been enjoying playing live shows in the NYC area but now would like to share our music with the world. We have spent lots of time arranging music (world, folk, pop and more!) for our trio and would love to record it and create a debut CD.

Making a CD can cost a lot of money. We will have to hire someone to record/produce the album, pay for studio time and pay production costs. We would also love to hire a guest artist or two! Since we spend all of our money on oboe cane and knives, we are asking for your help!

This is where Kickstarter comes in. Several of our musician friends recommended this site to help with fund-raising for their projects as they had great success with it. Here's how it works: you pledge what you can. If you pledge $10 or more your are eligible for a reward (see rewards section).

Although we are thrilled to have made our goal of $5000, we would love to keep the fund-raising effort going! We will have more expenses when making the CD, including PR, distribution and travel expenses. Thank you so much for your continued support!

All transactions are 100% secure and are done through Amazon.com.

Anything you can give would be much appreciated- even a pledge of $1 will help our dream of making a CD come to life! You can also help by posting this on your facebook, twitter, website, etc.- let's get the word out!

We have come up with several benefits for our donors- see below for details.

Thank you so much for considering to help us- we can't wait to share the CD with you and invite you to the release when it is done!

If we happen to make our goal of $5000 we would be so lucky! If you still want to pledge after the goal is met your help would be very much appreciated as we have many other expenses (travel, PR, etc!) that we would be able to put the money towards to help us share our music with the world!!

Please visit us at www.myspace.com/threedstrio for music, gig info and more

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
