Well a lot can happen in a week can’t it? There are several “successful” campaigns through the Kickstarter/Indiegogo services and some that are struggling. The purpose of these weekly posts is to highlight all the campaigns out there and let you know where you can contribute if you feel like ordering an independent release from some of these bands. Click below for the full list.
I am going to do one post today detailing the various Kickstarter campaigns taking place right now, some of which you might not be aware of. If you feel we missed one, please drop the link in the comments and i’ll add it to the post. Check out this Kickstarter roundup, below. Remember, no one is forcing your hand to engage in these “campaigns”. People do it because they want to be a part of the album making process and receive actual merch in exchange for contributing.

See what happens when Matt McDonald of The Classic Crime teams up with his Wife Kristie to make a folk pop album! Leave your comments on what you think!
Vocal Few will release their debut ep, “She’ll Be Right” on January 10th. Once in a while things just happen because they make sense. Vocal Few is Matt MacDonald (singer/songwriter of The Classic Crime) and his beautiful wife Kristie (singer/pianist/lover of Matt MacDonald). For years Kristie pled with Matt to record songs with her, but Matt, being lazy and a bad husband, always thought “Ugh, that sounds like a lot of work,” and shifted topics whenever the project was brought up. In March of 2011, Matt and Kristie were surprised by a little line on a pregnancy test. It especially shocked Matt, who eventually realized through a long chain of epiphanies, “Oh crap! How are we going to pay for this?” Kristie smiled. “The EP, of course.”
