Let's make it to $1500!
Thank you so much for all the support so far. It only took 2 days to reach our initial goal so there's no doubt that we can make it to $1500 so we can print the full packaging with the poster/lyrics and 3 stickers tucked into the digipak and polywrapped!
Here's a bit about us:
Producer Sandy Pearlman and Wordsmith Bones have been honing their sound since the group formed in 2012, and are set to demolish what you THINK you know about hip-hop with a major release due out soon. By combining traditional elements of the genre with their love of indie, folk, and even screamo music they have created a distinct and eclectic catalogue of songs for your listening pleasure. The pair has piled their wide-ranging creative expertise into establishing their own style and brand, using hobbies like fine cuisine and graphic design to compliment their musical identity. From referencing bangers (not just the club kind) in their lyrics to laser cutting their own wooden pendants for merch, Sandy Pearlman and Bones have everything covered. The two are well-established in their community and have a reputation for exceptional beats, quick raps, and grimy house parties. Their first musical release was in the spring of 2012, which features 5 original tracks.
Here's where we're at now:
We've finished our album. Everything from beats, lyrics, mixes and design is finished and ready to be released. We just need to send it to pressing but unfortunately we lack the funds to do so.
How you can help:
We've set our goal at $500 because this is the minimum we would need to press CDs. $500 would get us 100 CDs in digipaks and 300 posters, which would be awesome.
However, what we'd really like to do would be to have CDs in digipaks with a fold out poster/lyrics book and 3 stickers tucked into a pocket inside the digipak. Because this is a custom order, the minimum we'd be able to print would be 300, raising the price tag to $1500.
Anything you can afford to donate is apreciated and if we only reach $500 that would be fine, but if we can get enough people to support us and reach a $1500 goal, not only would it be amazing for us, it would amazing for you to get a copy of the CD in all it's pocketed professional glory!
And that's not all you can get. There are all kinds of great things in the perks section, from merch to custom prints to a gourmet dinner prepared by Sandy. Check 'em out!
Some of the merch you can get:
We're very excited about this album and can't wait to give you all the details about it, so this is how we're gonna do it.
When the campaign reaches:
$150 - we will release - The album title - 2D (that was quick)
$250 - we will release - The tracklist - Check the Updates section
$450 - we will release - The album art
so the quicker you donate, the quicker you'll find out all the deets!
For every additional $300 over the goal that is contributed we will release something else exciting. Who knows what it might be?
The reason we want to press CDs, even though the album will be available as a free download, is not mainly to be sold. The CDs will be mostly used as promotional material and be given to promoters, bloggers, other artists, etc... to get our name out there and to continue being heard by more and more people.
By donating to our campaign, not only will you be getting some awesome merch and perks, but you will be supporting our art, and don't worry, we wont forget you when we're playing to a sold out crowd at the Rogers Centre.
A bit extra:
On top of all this, there is something great you can do to help us out, that wont cost you a cent, and that is to share this campaign with all your friends and family and help us expand our audience and fan base.
