Kickstart Another Heypenny Record…

If you were sitting on pure pop gold, and you were working on five years since a proper full length, you’d do what it took to unleash your output, right? Heypenny, still TN’s best kept secret, is becoming desperate for cash; and more importantly, letting the masses hear a record five years in the making. It’s frustrating for a listener awaiting new output; I can’t imagine being a creator of goodness and not being able to share. That is where Kickstarter comes in – the site that funds ideas & endeavors. Last time I attempted to cheer lead for a project associated with Kickstarter, a bible or guide to the 90s scene in Chicago, it flopped. (my sorrow filled an ocean)

Heypenny have some cash to raise, and they would appreciate our monetary assistance. Details here and below….

We’re unbelievably close to having the followup to “Use These Spoons” done, but we’re looking for a bit of help in putting the final touches on the record, i.e., finishing up some tracking, mixing, mastering and pressing. This is a huge, expensive undertaking and we’re hoping that you, our friends, family and fans might be able to help us knock it out of the park. It’s been years in the making and we want to make it just right and we’d love for you to be a part of it. If you’re willing to donate and help us reach our goal of $3400 in 45 days, we’re gonna offer these packages in return:

$5 – Hi-five at a show
$10 – Digital Download of Album
$20 – Digital Download and Limited Edition Packaged CD Autographed
$30 – All the Above plus a Limited T-shirt
$50 – All the above and a phone call from the band
$100 – All the above and a song personalized for you
$500 – All the above and a private performance for you and your friends at your house (limited to 300 mile radius from Nashville)

So, here we are, all in the trenches together, let’s start climbing out and make some magic happen.

Be a part of history.

    Man, it seems like everyone is offering these type of packages now. Must be a sign of the times for the record industry, when bands are willing to play at your house, in order to finish their record properly. Great for the fans though, if you got the cash!

    If I fund your next LP, will you come to my place of residence and put on an intimate performance?
