Helllooooo out there!
Thanks for giving our page a look. For those of you who happened upon this video by chance, we are Jane of Arc - a three piece, indie-pop all lady band from Ferndale, MI.
Let's just get right to it...
This campaign is extremely close to our hearts and crucial to the launch of our music. We need you to help us contribute financially to (for lack of better words) make our dreams come true and produce our first full-length album. For years we've saved our nickels and dimes to keep the band afloat, doing all of the things that bands do (book shows/rent venues, record, produce merchandise, etc.) and are thankful for those of you who attend our shows, buy our merch, purchase our music and have already donated to our cause.
Your dolla dolla bills will go towards one of 4 things:
*Producing physical CD's
*Producing album art/packaging
...and these things cost lots and lots of money if the job is done right (with the right people). We plan on contributing from our personal accounts, as this number will not cover the entire cost of production.
Let's break the cost down for you:
*Approximately $7200 (8 hours/song) for studio time.
*Approximately $3000 (4/5 hours/song) for mixing/mastering.
*Approximately $1000 for first run pressing of the CD's.
Clearly this math does not add up. However, like we mentioned before, we wouldn't feel right if we weren't contributing ourselves as a band.
In return for your help, we have some pretty cool stuff to give you, including all kinds of sweet merch, a painting (by us cumulatively as a band!), a youtube video specifically for you - from us! For contributing more than $250, you'll get to help out on our album and come to the studio with us. For $500 we will take you out to dinner, for $750 we will come to your house and perform for any crowd you choose, for $1000 we will give you a producers credit on the album and for $1,000,000 we will tattoo your name on our asses! Just kidding... but maybe!
If we don't reach our goal, your money will still be kept safe until we do reach it. This just means it might take us a little longer to make it happen.
We already love and appreciate you beyond words and obviously after watching our campaign video, you can see how important this album is to us. If you just can't contribute, it's ok! Visit our Facebook page and give us some love, tell your friends about us and give our music a good listen. We still adore you!
