Another crowdfunding campaign (Bridie Jackson & The Arbour)

5 Feb

Some more crowdfunder news – this time, from Bridie Jackson & The Arbour who are seeking funding support (via Subsume) in order to
film a video for their song ‘We Talked Again’.

Here’s the message from the band:

“As you know, we’ve been in the studio to record our second album which we will be touring throughout April of this year. Now, to really help us get our music out there, we would love to get a single from it released, with a spanking new and impressive video. However, recording the album has taken up most of our funds and so now we are turning to you. We would be so grateful if you could help us out by digging as deep as your pockets allow and pledging some of your hard earned cash toward the making of the video.

Don’t worry, we aren’t expecting you to do this purely for the love – we have lots of lovely, pretty darn exclusive, things to entice you (call them gifts) as a thank you for your generosity.
We have option to suit any budget, including an album preview download, hand-made gifts from the band, mugs, posters, song dedications, belle plate lessons, Bridie’s guitar, private gigs and many more.

If you’ve been following us closely then you will be familiar with the work of an amazing director/producer called Andrew AB who filmed the video for our single ‘Scarecrow’ and then agreed to follow us around Glastonbury 2013 filming our “best moments” with the odd cameo appearance from a couple of famous people. We would love to work with Andrew AB again (he’s clearly doing something right) and for him to film our new video for our next single. Please help us make it happen!

We send a massive THANK YOU in advance.

With love,

BJATA x”

For those of you who don’t know Bridie Jackson & The Arbour, they’re an all-female British folk band based in Newcastle. As well as being intriguing, accessible songwriters and song-deliverers, they’ve carried off the achievement of charming the collective socks off everyone I know who’s heard them (including the cynics, and the noiseniks.) If you’re curious about them and their work (and about Andrew AB’s way with a camera), here’s the Scarecrow video and the Glastonbury documentary.

…and here they are on Bandcamp….

…and here’s a simplified, more tuneful version of their crowdfunding message. Happy listening.
