Hello friends! Exciting news! In October, I am going into the studio to record in Nashville, TN. I'M SO PUMPED! I've got six new songs picked out, and I am thrilled to be able to share one with you right now.
"Keep Looking Back" is featured in the video for my Kickstarter Campaign! It's the first song off of the record, and with the help of Matt Afflitto and Jessie Tseng, I compiled video footage of what I've been up to since I recorded West for a While two years ago to give you an idea of what you are investing in when you join #TeamCaitlin!
So what is "Team Caitlin" exactly?
"Team Caitlin" started as a silly name for all the wonderful friends who help me get my music out there, from the design of my website to the pretty pictures on my album cover to the promotional side of getting my music to people who might enjoy it. I thought it would be a fun name for this Kickstarter campaign, as it is in a lot of ways the same idea. Getting these songs to sound the way I hear them in my head requires a chunk of change that I do not have, but I really believe in this project, and I am confident that the end result will be worth the effort! As an independent artist, I am lucky to have the freedom to pursue the creative avenues without limitations, but that also means that I am in charge of finding those funds myself. So...
This is where you come in.
If you have 1 minute, check out the song and decide if it sounds like music you would like to invest in. You can listen to "Keep Looking Back" streaming on the project page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/caitlinmahoneymusic/teamcaitlin-makes-a-new-record
If you have 7 minutes, check out the video on my Kickstarter page. I tell you why I choose to pursue a career in music and why I believe in making this record so much that I want to raise $10,000 to do it. If you decide you would like to join #TeamCaitlin and pledge to the campaign, you will find super fun rewards at every level, from an early signed copy of the record all the way to a house concert at your convenience! I have even rounded up a couple friends to help make the rewards special and unique to this project. When you pledge, you will not be charged unless the project is fully funded, and that has to happen in the next 30 days, so time is of the essence! Make a pledge and join #TeamCaitlin TODAY!!!
When you become a backer, you'll have access to updates along the way. This is going to be the fun part! I'll send you pictures and recordings from the studio in October. I'll go into details about which songs will be included and what they mean to me personally. I am really looking forward to this part of the process. Each update will be like a little #TeamCaitlin meeting, and how awesome does that sound!?!
Thank you for being on this journey with me! I also have some shows booked for this fall in New York and FLORIDA!! More dates to come, but in the meantime, check out my kickstarter campaign and get excited for a new record and new songs!!!! Gimme a shout on Twitter or Facebook when you make a pledge or share the project. And if you really want to get in the team spirit, send me a picture of yourself with a #TeamCaitlin sign and I'll share it to get everybody pumped!
See you at the first #TeamCaitlin meeting! I'll be the one waiting with caramel brownies for you. :)
