The LYNNeS Kickstarter Campaign
I've been writing songs with Lynn Miles for several years now – she's produced 2 of my albums (River of Sand & 7 Deadly Spins), and we've played shows in Canada, the US, Ireland, and Holland together. Last year over coffee at one of our favourite shops in Ottawa we decided that it was time to take this show on the road and actually make an album of co-writes, release it, and tour as The LYNNeS.
We both have had lengthy solo careers ... “Other Lynn” has been touring and releasing albums since 1932 (okay maybe not that long), has a Juno award (Canada's version of a Grammy Award), and 4 Canadian Folk Music Awards to her credit.
We've been busy writing over the past several months and have settled on the songs we want to include on this new album. We've decided to go old school and record to tape with Dave Draves at Little Bullhhorn Studios in Ottawa. This is an independent release so we are going to need some help to get it done. Which is where YOU come in :-)
We've set up a Kickstarter Campaign to help raise the funds we need to make and release this album. We're offering a whole bunch of rewards for our backers ... from pre-sales (download and physical versions) of the album, to postcards from the road, to a concert in your home. You can check it out here:
WHATEVER you can do to help us with this project is HUGELY appreciated. If you aren't in a position to help financially, it would be GREAT if you could SHARE our Kickstarter Campaign with any of your friends, family, coworkers who might be interested AND/OR on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc).
Please feel free to send an email if you have any questions at all about the Campaign ... and thank you in advance for your continued support of independent music!
