After launching our Kickstarter project just a week ago, we’ve covered a lot of ground — raising over $1500 through the pledges of 53 backers from all around the country and the world.
Add to that some passionate and devoted re-posting and link-sharing by lots of supportive friends, family, and fans all over Facebook, and I’m kinda staggered out on the edge of incredulity. This is awesome! We’re doing so well! Pretty soon we’ll be putting out this sick new album!
As I type this, my inbox keeps piling up with good news — names of new Kickstarter backers, a giant .wav file of the sparkly-voiced grand piano that guest pianist Dan Hurst recorded for our track Animals, promotional ideas for our last show of the summer this Saturday with Alexis in Holland, updates about our ArtPrize entry for this fall, aaaaaaand…
We’re excited to announce: our NEW MUSIC VIDEO will be released this Friday morning! The vid was shot by John Hanson, edited by Mike Knorr, and features Jesy and I lip-syncing while running in slow-motion around our Fulton Heights neighborhood. Keep your eyes peeled! We’ll plaster it around the web and post it in an update on Kickstarter, too.
Last night we had a great rehearsal as the new incarnation of Ribbons of Song: just a tiny three-piece. It’s gonna take a while to get used to, but Ribbons is now just organ, nylon-strung guitar, and three voices. We got to perform a couple songs on the air at WYCE yesterday as well. Hopefully we can share those live recordings with you soon.
This past week has been so crazy! Please keep spreading the word to your friends and family about our Kickstarter project. We’ve only got 2 weeks left to raise $4000. We can do this.
