Short Summary:

January 2014 marks the 10 year existence of Amber Pacific, in 10 years we have accomplished more than any one of us could have ever imagined. We set out to make a positive and lasting impact on anyone who was willing to take the time to give our music a chance. We've grown together over the years, we've experienced highs and lows and have shared the common bond of music regardless of circumstance.

Here's what some of you may not know, the contributions you've made, purchasing our records, coming to our shows, picking up t-shirts, posters, stickers, bracelets, and even tote bags, have allowed us to continue making music and has given us the unique opportunity and privilege to visit every state in the continental US, playing our music live, for you, the fans. 

We've reached a point in our career where the music landscape has changed, bands are no longer dependent upon labels to fund their albums. With a little creativity and a lot of support, bands can now offer their fans the ultimate return on their investment offering exclusive incentives that record labels simply cannot match. This is what we want to offer our fans, the ultimate experience in becoming part of a greater cause, part of something that will hopefully reach, touch, and inspire the lives of many just as our music has inspired you.

We welcome you to join us on this great new adventure and thank you for taking the time to read this!

What We Need & What You Get

Now to the business side of things, here is how our costs breakdown:

Producer / Mixer / Engineer / Studio Time: $20,000

     Previous album budgets:

          Fading Days EP: $5,000.00

          The Possibility the The Promise: $25,000.00

          Truth In Sincerity: $35,000.00

There is a chance that despite our greatest efforts, we might not reach our goal of $20,000. In that case, we will do our best to fulfill each incentive with the limited resources we will have but please understand that we will be somewhat limited in what we can offer.

We are using Indiegogo as a vehicle to fund this campaign because it allows us to use the funds we receive, regardless of whether we hit our goal. It we do not reach our goal, we will do our best to launch a similar project but on a much smaller scale, a 3 to 5 song EP.

This is our best attempt at making this a win-win situation for everyone who contributed!

The Impact

Music can be one of the most powerful tools in terms of impacting a person's life. We remember moments that are framed with our favorite songs, these snapshots of our lives become burned in our memories and music has the ability to instantaneously place you at each of these snapshots with a simple push of a button.

One of our proudest moments as a band was getting the chance to fulfill a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation for someone who has now become our life long friend. It's moments such as these that remind us just how special music can be. These are the people who inspire us along with many of you who have shared your personal stories with us about how our music has impacted you.

This is the drive, the motivation, and the foundation of our band. Without your contributions, our band would have never seen a single state line and we are forever grateful for that.

Other Ways You Can Help

Helping us reach our goal can be accomplished in more ways than one, if you simply can't afford the incentives we have listed, here are some critical steps you can take to get our campaign fully funded!

1. Please, tell a friend. Let them know what we are trying to do and direct them to our campaign site to learn more about how they can contribute.

2. Indiegogo has created excellent tools to share content with others, scroll through a few and find one that makes sense for you, then blast the social media world with words that will motivate and inspire others to join our cause!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH THE YEARS! OUR FANS ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST PART ABOUT AMBER PACIFIC AND WE ARE SO VERY THANKFUL FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.
