Aww look at these cuties! All I wanna do is give ‘em my hard-earned wages
It’s been three years since COHO entered Seattle’s music scene. Since then, they’ve been performing at venues around the city to make ends meet, try out new music, and show off their chops. Of course, this can only last so long before an audience member asks, “where can I buy your music?”
The hard and fast truth of the music industry is that, without money to record, there is no music to buy! This is where fans (both new and old) can help! Yesterday, the band (formerly known as the Coho Mountain String Ticklers) kicked off an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for their debut EP.
Check out the promo video below (caution – peak cuteness levels await):
Want to help? Contribute and earn perks on the IndieGoGo Campaign page!
Besides the simple satisfaction that comes from helping six Seattle-ites make their dreams come true, your contributions will also earn you a collection of the following gifts:
- Free downloads
- A signed CD
- Free tickets, t-shirts, and physical copy of the EP
In addition to these perks, there are some cooler (and cuter) perks like…
- A (homemade) wood-burned coaster
- A date with a band member
- An invitation to the listening party
- A song about YOU
- A private show!
I have been following this band since one of their first shows and I am so happy to see them ready to record something that we can enjoy. As both a faithful listener to folk music and member of the Seattle music community, I believe in the power of music from the heart.
COHO’s music is a part of our community and they deserve all the support they can get. “Success for us is not in dollar signs or in playing prestigious venues; rather, it is defined by whether people can listen to our music and feel it,” the band states on their IndieGoGo page. “That is what we hope for, and that is the purpose of this campaign.”
