We’re funding our new album with help from fans, friends and this amazing website called Kickstarter, which allows people to donate to the project.
With the record industry being what it is, this is a super exciting new way to try to fund an album. We only get the money if we meet our fundraising goal of $12,500 within two months — if we fall short, everyone gets their money back and we get squat — so the stakes are high, but I’m hoping it’ll give the people who enjoy our music a deeper sense of ownership over the project. Speaking of which, everyone who donates gets a CD and a credit as a Micro Producer, and if you donate significantly, you get a lot more than that.
And oh, we are off to an awesome start. After a day and a half, we are over %10 of the way to our goal. Thanks to the 24 backers who’ve donated so generously already!
