Last year I stopped by Paste Magazine’s office to play some songs. Since then they moved offices and subsequently lost the tapes. Well now they are found and online! Plus they’re called Bess Rogers (The Lost Tapes), so I consider that a huge win.
Here are the two things I knew about Bess Rogers before hitting play on her project video: she is making a new record, and her hat is really cool. Here are the things I learned about Bess Rogers after hitting play on her project video: she has many hats and all of them are cool, she is…
You probably know this by now, but I’m currently raising money on Kickstarter to finish and release my new album. So far we’ve raised over 17,000! I have no idea how this happened. But it is AMAZING. Thank you if you have been a part of it either by donating or by reblogging, telling your friends, etc.
There are 22 days left in the campaign and every little bit will help to pay for radio people, PR people, album artwork… the list goes on and on.
So now I’ve set a new goal for 20K and here are the things that will happen if we get there.
Out of the Ocean Acoustic LP with unreleased bonus tracks!
If we reach 20K, I will make a full length CD of bonus material. It will include acoustic versions of the whole record PLUS 3 extra songs that I love but didn’t make it onto the record. There are no other recordings of these songs, so this is the only place you can hear them.
[Everyone who donates $15 and up will get a digital copy. Those who donate $30 and up will get a signed and numbered physical copy!]
I WILL MAKE A MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE MOST RIDICULOUS SONG I’VE EVER MADE: “TOUCH MY BOOTY”.
At the end of my first record, Decisions Based on Information, there is a secret track. It’s actually backwards, but if you reverse it, it’s a sexy song about butts called Touch My Booty! It was produced by the amazing Dan Romer and also features his widely acclaimed rapping skills! I’ve attached it here for your listening pleasure. (It has some cursing in it, so don’t listen to it if you’re below legal cursing age, whatever that is.) If we reach 20k, I will enlist the help of Andrew Futral (who directed and my video for Favorite Day) and we’ll make a video for it! I can’t divulge many more details but I promise it will involve butts and sluts, so get ready.
And if you were considering doing the $1000 prize and getting a cameo in the video, now is the time! You can even split it up with your friends and all be in it together!
So thanks again for helping me to reach these goals so quickly and for enabling me to release this record the right way. It means so much to me and I’m so thankful for your support!
