Elephant Revival Start Pledge Music Campaign to Fund Album
Elephant Revival have launched a Pledge Music Campaign to fund the release of their newly recorded album. The Colorado folk band, known for their eclectic acoustic music, recorded their latest full-length at Bear Creek Studios in Seattle, and have opted to use the crowd-sourced funding site in the spirit of community and independence. Incentives include a handwritten book of the album’s lyrics, a song written by Daniel Rodriguez, a lullaby recorded by Bonnie Paine, music and snowboarding lessons, one of Paine’s antique washboards (worn through, of course), guest-list inclusion on all regular 2014 shows, and a private house concert. Funds raised will cover manufacturing, distribution, publicity and promotion.
As they embark on their campaign, Elephant Revival would like to tell every member of the extended tribe: “Thank-you for the beautiful and inspiring support. You rock our world, seriously.” Their upcoming tour dates can be found below.
Elephant Revival stopped by the Relix office for a performance in our boiler room a couple years ago. You can watch the group perform “Raindrops” here.
