So many bluegrass and acoustic artists have been using Kickstarter of late, seeking crowdsourced funding for new albums, that we can’t post all the ones we sniff out online. But here is one of special merit that we hope you’ll support.
The Church Sisters (Savanah and Sarah) have grown rapidly over these past four years from a couple of cute little girls singing together in churches to mature vocal artists. They’ve appeared on national television, and performed widely across the country with their older brother Seth on guitar – as much as a pair of twin high schoolers can schedule.
Carl Jackson chose the girls to perform on the Mark Twain – Words & Music CD which he produced in 2011, and a wider audience began to notice these talented teens.
But they had started garnering attention as early as 2009 at the Cabin Fever Pickin’ Party in Hampton, VA.
Now after two self-produced albums, they feel ready to tackle a more ambitious recording project for their mix of bluegrass, Americana, acoustic country and Gospel music.
Here’s the promotional video they put together for Kickstarter. If it looks like it was made by a couple of teenagers, well… it was.
Before long, these ladies will be signed to a major national label, and you will be able to say that you helped them on their way by pledging a piece of their $25,000 budget, in exchange for valuable premiums like autographed merchandise.
Visit their Kickstarter project online, and make a pledge if you can.
