UPDATE! 04.14.14

A heartfelt thank you is in order to each and every person who donated to our album. We did not know what to expect as we began this campaign, and you've overwhelmed us with your generosity. We've put everything into this music, and we are so, so excited to share it with you.  

We're on track to begin fulfillment of the perks in June. As this project is still in production, we'll keep in touch with you via email if anything changes. Stay tuned to the Stone & Snow Facebook page for updates and announcements regarding the release date and shows. 

Thank you again. Sincerely. Hashtag folkyeah!

UPDATE! 03.21.2014

You did it! We reached our goal! Thank you all so much for your generosity and support. We are overwhelmed. That being said, 


We still need your help.


Our goal of $2,500 is a HUGE start. The more funds we raise, the more we can do with the album. So if you haven't donated yet, we still need your help! PLUS, this campaign is the only way to get the music before the release date and have your name mentioned in the liner notes of the album (with donations of $75 or more). 


OUR STORY 

We are singer-songwriters Karen Bridges and Clint Thomson—together we are Stone & Snow.

A little about us…

We ran into each other on the musician’s section of craigslist a couple years ago.


We like folk songs and mountain vistas and writing folk songs about mountain vistas.


We sometimes speak a language consisting of 90’s comedy quotes that few can interpret.

THE PROJECT

This campaign will raise money to make our first professionally produced and recorded full-length record.

We got our feet wet in 2013 when we recorded our live EP “Western Spy”. This March, we stepped into the studio (Oxide Lounge in Bloomington) with audio engineer/producer David Rossi to start recording the album.

We enlisted the talent of some great musicians to play with us on the record-- Kenny Shepard on drums and percussion, Rick Bennett on electric bass, Mark Genrich on upright bass, and Bruce Bergethon on fiddle.

It's been a dream of ours to record our music since we began writing songs together over two years ago. Your donation will help make this a reality for us, and you can feel great knowing you're supporting local and independent music.

OUR COSTS

We’re looking forward to collaborating with you and having you be a part of our debut album! That being said, the costs associated with creating a full-length studio album can add up quickly. Your donation will go towards the following costs associated with our record:

1. Pre-production

2. Studio time

3. Session musicians

4. Mixing & Mastering

5. CD Pressing & Packaging

6. Promotion

7. IndieGoGo & Credit Card Processing Fees

This flexible funding campaign means we will get to keep whatever donations are made towards the record even in the event that we are unable to reach our goal. Should we exceed our goal, we may be able to fund additional goals we have for the record including promotion, travel costs for shows and the design & production of unique merchandise.  Every dollar puts us closer to meeting our goal for this record. Thank you.

YOUR GIFTS

We are offering exclusive gifts with your donation, and they are only available through this campaign. These include hand-written notes, framed artwork, private concerts and more! Every donation of $75 or more includes a mention of your name in the liner notes of the record.  

You can donate by selecting a reward on the right-hand side of this page and following the instructions from there.

Thank you so much for your support – we couldn’t do this without you!
