This campaign will fund my third CD “Elemental.” Whether you donate in order to pre-order your CD or you give more, you'll play an important role in bringing this project to life.
I'm so grateful to all those who sponsored this project. You made it happen! "Elemental" has been released and is available at www.trinitydemask.com, www.trinitydemask.bandcamp.com, and on iTunes, Spotify, CDBaby, and other digital retailers and streaming services. Thank you all for your support!
I’m very excited to be launching this campaign to fund my third CD “Elemental.” I believe this is my strongest collection of songs yet. Many of them have been waiting a long time to get their moment to shine and to reach people who will benefit from hearing them. Whether you donate in order to pre-order your CD or you’d like to give more and be part of bringing this musical creation to life, your support is essential and greatly appreciated.
A lot has changed since I recorded my last CD “Crucible.” Vocal surgery, a difficult divorce from my husband (who was also my music and producing partner), moving multiple times, juggling a handful of diverse jobs to keep a roof over my head, and a plethora of other obstacles have left little time or energy to tackle recording a new CD. However, I continued to write during this time and I think I captured a lot of magic during this time of struggle. Now, I have the opportunity to finally record these songs with some stellar musicians and I'm excited to bring them fully to life and share them with you.
My goal is to raise $5,000 by May 31, 2015. This will cover studio time, paying musicians, mixing, mastering, graphic design, manufacturing/packaging, and other costs associated with the production of this CD. I’ve created a variety of sponsorship levels, each with a different gift for your support. If you’d rather just donate an amount of your choosing, you can do that as well.
The reason I chose Fundly over other crowdfunding sites is because I’m able to access funds as they come in – in other words, everything isn’t on hold until the deadline. I have already done some preliminary recording and planning. As soon as there are funds to begin, I can start recording immediately. Also, this isn’t an “all or nothing” site where you don’t get a dime if you don’t reach your goal. Should I fall short, I’ll extend the campaign as long as necessary until I raise what is needed to finish this project.
WHY AM I FUNDRAISING?
Many national and even international artists have opted to crowdfund their projects. It’s a grassroots way of involving fans in the creation of music. For well-known acts with an international fanbase, it allows these artists to have creative control over their music by stretching beyond what their labels will allow. For those of us little fish in genres that aren’t considered mainstream enough to ever interest the major labels (Americana/folk), crowdfunding is often the only way our music can be produced. This is certainly the case for me. Simply put, I can’t make this album without your support.
If you don't feel comfortable contributing online or if you want to pre-order multiple copies of the CD, you can mail a check payable to Excaligurl Records to P.O. Box 746494, Arvada, CO 80006-6494.

THE FINE PRINT ON ITEMS IN THE GIVING LEVELS
House Concerts: House concerts consist of two 45-minute sets. These need not be limited to a performance in a home. They can be a birthday party, wedding reception, or even a staged ticketed event (if you want to try your hand as a concert promoter). I’ll show up to play, but it’s your show. Feel free to be creative! These are redeemable for dates in 2015 (contact me and we’ll schedule a date).
Custom Song or Poem: While I retain the ownership/publishing rights to the original work produced, you may do with the recording or printed poem whatever you wish.
