Hello there!

We´ve made, we reached the Goal of €1,700 and even more!

We still have five days left though!

– I have decided that all extra money will go in the first place to the Musicians, the Studio and Video making and Artworker of the EP. These people are usually underpaid anyway. And so far they have already put in a tremendous energy, enthusiasm, professionality and time into this project.
– I would like to make a few extra transparent 7inch vinyls as well

What was it all about again?

I am going to make three new making-of videos and one extra story-type video! I have to get in extra musicians and film-makers for this, all of who need paying in advance of any CD sales of course. We´ll have a whole band: Drums, Double bass, Guitars and extra vocals from a great female singer! The four songs we record for the videos will be put on an exclusive CD - limited edition to 100 copies.

I tried to find fitting rewards to the levels of money and trust put into my project with each pledge. For example, a 10EUR pledge will get you a digital download of the songs and a link to the video. Pledge a little more and you´ll get a signed CD... these kinds of things. It´s like buying the CD upfront.. or in the most extreme case, getting your own private house concert smile emoticon After 35 days I have been blown away to have pledges totaling up to €2000,-, which gets me way over to the goal of €1700,- I needed to upfront for this project.

I thank you so very much in advance for anything you meant and could possibly mean and I will do my part and make the nicest recordings and best videos possible and present this all to you after a month of having reached the goal!!

And if you know of anyone who might also be interested in what I´m doing, please share along!

Thanks forever!!

Many greets,

Rik van den Bosch

The songs that will be recorded are: When I lay my eyes on you, Love on the Rocks, Undertaker and Head full of Cotton whool.
