For 10 years we have been recording and performing together as TRI-FI. 10! T-E-N. 10!
That's kind of crazy and really pretty awesome as far as we're concerned. So to celebrate the event, we have a new recording of original music in the works we'd like to share with you! But…we need your help!
We've got some music "in the can" as they say - recorded in May of this year. We feel it's some of our strongest writing and playing as a trio yet. We really want to release the album ourselves as we've done in the past, and we need to raise a bit of money to finish the project.
Doing a recording right takes money:
- Recording Studio
- CD replication and delivery
- Psychotherapy (We have been together for 10 years. It happens…)
So why the rush? We really want to have this project finished in time for a release in early 2014 - the official 10-year anniversary of our first album. But more importantly we thought it would be really cool to have special Kickstarter copies ready to be delivered to you for Christmas! Why? Because who doesn't like getting presents in the mail for Christmas?! Plus we know we could all use help with Christmas shopping for that certain someone who has everything.
Oh, and we've also got special goodies for anyone who joins in…
- instant MP3 samples from the CD
- sneak peeks at cover artwork
- photos and out-takes from the session
Please help us reach our goal in time by pre-ordering some music.
Kickstarter is an amazing and powerful crowd-funding tool that lets you directly affect projects you feel passionate about - projects that might never happen without real financial backing - and crowd-funding makes your support personal. How amazing is that?
It's "all or nothing" here on Kickstarter. A project has to be 100% funded or no money changes hands. That's cool for you because it takes the fear out of putting your money into a half-funded project that may or may not happen. Try getting that kind of confidence from the stock market!
We've set the goal for an amount that will get the project completed and delivered on schedule. But we have to reach our goal. Period.
Thank you for helping to make the music happen. And as always - thanks for listening!
The TRI-FI Guys
Matthew, Keith & Phil
We've been getting a lot of comments about the blooper reel that we posted on the "Updates" page. The number one comment was that we need to post this on the home page where everyone can see it! So, by popular demand, here it is. Some of the outtakes from the making of our Kickstarter video ;-)
Risks and challenges
We've been down this road before. This is our 5th album as TRI-FI. We've been through the process of writing, recording, mixing, mastering, pressing, distributing - and we know what it costs. We've set a budget for what we need to finish and deliver on time. Thanks for your help!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
