We are Pocket Change.Pocket Change is a four-piece indie rock outfit based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Some of us grew up together, others fell into the project as late as second-year university. As a group, we're committed to making our music unique and fun to listen to, and now we want to show you what we've been working on. This project is both a thanks to those who have supported us from the beginning, and a welcome to new listeners wondering what we're all about.
Keep us off the beach this Reading Week. Get us in the studio.
Some university students take warm vacations during Reading Week. Here's what we're doing this year:
- Spending up to 12 hours a day at Private Ear Recording Studios in frigid Winnipeg.
- Recording 5 of our favourite original tracks from start to finish - including some never played live!
Flying to warm places is bad for the environment and self-indulgent. With your support, we will emit much less carbon than a single flight, and be very industrious.
What your help does:
Recording is a costly process, so we need your support to get this project on the go and eventually into your hands.
- Our studio time is booked, and this project is happening for sure. We are ready to invest personally in the process. Fundraising contributions will help us finish and release the project sooner.
- Up to and including mixing what we record, our budget is $3000-$3500. We would like to fundraise at least half of that through this campaign, if not more.
What's in it for you?First and foremost, you will be helping support unique, independent music and the people making it. But that doesn't mean we can't help you out, too. We've designed a number of fun perks for the individual who might want something like a piece of band history or an evening out with us. We also have sponsorships available for entrepreneurs, businesses, etc. looking to reach new audiences and support the arts community (these will be CAPITALIZED in the perks list).
If all you want out of this is a copy of the album, you can pre-order now. Like we said, having the funding beforehand will help us get it out to you quicker.
Spread the word!
There's strength in numbers. The more people help us out, the sooner we'll be able to give back to you. Check out the Indiegogo Share Tools for all things online, and don't be afraid to use good old word-of-mouth communication.
We'll keep in touch throughout the campaign from home and the studio - be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter so you don't miss a beat.
Thanks for your interest and support!
