Hello! Thanks for visiting our Kickstarter page! We're Tin Bird Choir—a local, free-range, Pennsylvania barn rock band. And we need your help.
We've been hard at work in our barn, turning some of our new songs into what we think will be one amazing album, thanks to the masterful help of our engineer/producer Kevin Killen.
We've been laying down drums, bass, guitar, vocals, hand claps, banjos, piano, and we've got plans for some violin, bells, organ, and more.
But recording the songs is only part of the journey. We need your help to mix, master, and print this album so that these songs can have a life outside of the barn.
So, we've come to Kickstarter to fund our recording project with your help. Here's how the funding breaks down:
$5,000 = our 10-song album, recorded, mixed, mastered, designed, and printed.
$6,000 = our album plus publicity and press (getting the word out is always good!)
$7,000 = our album, publicity, press, and we could print vinyl (ah, the warm, crackly sound of vinyl)
$8,000+ = a full-blown, real-deal album, plus publicity, press, vinyl, an awesome release party, and... a music video! That would be amazing!
We're so excited to share these songs with you! But we only receive your funding if we meet our goal of $5,000.
So, we've put together a fun bunch of incentives that you can see on the right— everything from t-shirts and stickers, to personalized recordings and on-air invitations. And, of course, copies of the album when it's done. Plus, we've gotten some amazing donations from the local Philly music community that we're so fortunate to be a part of. And we're excited to be able to share these with you as well.
Thanks so much for being here, for reading this, and for supporting us.
Hopefully we'll have a brand new album to share with you this spring!
Yours with love,
Tin Bird Choir

Risks and challenges
We lead busy lives, full of growing families, challenging jobs, fruitful gardens, fermented vegetables, 24-hour broths, cast-iron skillets, and home-made bread. Sometimes we wonder if it's worth it to record songs, and make albums. But, when it comes down to it, when we really think about it, all we can say is, we do it because that's what we do. We make time for it because we're songwriters, performers, and lovers of music. We live art-full lives, and we wouldn't have it any other way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
