Kishi Bashi (@kishi_bashi) is clearly a seasoned veteran when it comes to creating incredibly engaging indie pop music.  As a singer, violinist, and multi-instrumentalist composer, he cultivates a full sound that is characterized by lush and hypnotic rhythms. After founding Brooklyn based band, Jupiter One, and touring with the likes of Regina Spector and Of Montreal, Kishi Bashi is ready to share his own work with the world with the debut album 151a.  With a little financial support, he’ll be able to properly mix and master the finished product and successfully promote it.

Best ROI: $25 gets you a signed CD, a digital download, a personal thank you note, and he’ll include your name in an original Kishi Bashi “thank you” song that he’ll perform on YouTube.

Hailing from Portland, Maine, Theodore Treehouse (@theotreehouse) is ready to put out their sophomore album. With a sound that is largely defined by high energy, exploding guitar riffs, and vocals that have a rich roughness, the band emanates fun and foot-tap-worthy indie rock.  With a little over a month to go, the guys are asking for some help to fund the recording and mastering of their new album.

Best ROI:  A pledge of $20 will earn you digital downloads of both their brand new album and their first studio album, “Mercury Closest to the Sun”.

Through masterfully blending and looping violin, cello, drums, and stunning lyrics, Wes Swing (@wesswingmusic) creates an exquisite variety of alternative folk-pop music.  In addition to channeling his creativity to produce a striking sound, Wes Swing and his band have also used their ingenuity to come up with an environmentally friendly Kickstarter Project.  Together, they are aiming to raise enough money to purchase a bio-fuel van in which they plan to travel and tour the country. With a little bit of help from you, they can continue to spread and share both their music and their super positive message about the environment.  Seems like an awesome cause if you ask me!

Best ROI: $25 dollars will get you an immediate digital download of  “Through a Fogged Glass”, a signed copy of the physical CD, a limited edition art print card, AND your name hand-painted inside the van as a thank you for your support!
