From the Amasong website:
Amasong is embarking on our next CD project! We’re reaching out to you–our beloved, supportive community–to back our project and make it happen. Amasong is launching a project on kickstarter.com to raise at least the first half of the funds it will take to get the amazing music you’ve heard from 2008-2012 into your hands. Between now and June 30, 2012, we need to raise $7,500 through the Kickstarter project. Already want to pledge? Check out our project at this link!: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/amasong/amasong-makes-a-new-cd.
Wonder how it works? We ask you to back our project at any amount you wish, and we give you thank-you rewards starting at the $5 mark. Here’s the important part: To see any of the money you pledge, we MUST reach $7,500 by 11:59 PM on June 30. (Think of it as a matching grant program: Amasong’s board will match your support to make our new CD happen, if we can get $7,500 on kickstarter.com by June 30). Your pledge amount and credit card number will be taken by Amazon.com, but your card will only charged when our full amount is reached on June 30.
We’ve created a short video about why our project is worth your investment. Watch it here, and then you can pledge your support to making Amasong’s 5th CD a reality!:
There are a number of local businesses and organizations that support Amasong. That support allows us to do things like pay for rehearsal space and produce albums. Please consider patronizing the businesses and organizations listed on our Support Page.
