WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?!!Hello friends,
My name is AJ Peacox. I grew up in San Diego, CA living the much-maligned life of a highly-caffeinated punk rawk band geek choir dork writing songs about people who were mean to me.
I went to college and learned how to write music really good... and now I need your help.
WHAT?!!My band and I graduated from the University of Southern California, each of us holding the first ever ultra-expensive piece of paper to read "Bachelor of Music Degree in Popular Music Performanc" in our hands. Over the summer, Will Badocchi (drums), Rob Nagelhout (bass), and I (guitar/vocals) recorded 10 songs with the highest quality recording techniques and performances that we could muster.
I sent one of the rough mixes of the title track of the album "games to play in the rain." to a famous mixing engineer, Mike Sapone. Mike, who has engineered every album by the bands Brand New and many other important albums in my life, loved the songs and agreed to mix our album. THIS IS THE GREATEST NEWS EVER.
However, Mike's services don't come cheap. We simply don't have the money to afford them. This is where you come in.
WAIT, YOU WANT MY MONEY?!!Yes! Well... let me explain.
Rob, Will, and I are asking you to donate anything you can spare to help us pay for our album to be mixed. No donation is too small.
We are trying to reach a goal of $2000. This would pay for more than half of the mixing, making this dream of ours closer to coming true.
In exchange for your donation, we have arranged several awesome "perks" that you will receive based on how much you choose to donate. Some prizes include advanced copies of the album, a guitar, a bass, love letters, and t-shirts!
BUT I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY!!!That's okay! If you can't donate money, but you want to help, it would mean the world to us if you could help spread the word! Tell a friend about our campaign. Post a link to our campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or any other social media! The more people that see our page, the better our chances of making (or even exceeding) our goal!
Thank you all infinitely!
**OUR PERKS ARE POKEMON THEMED**
