Kickstarter for Breanne Marie: “Music saved my life, and it’s keeping me alive”

Duluth’s Breanne Marie seems like a very nice lady and I think she makes a nice addition to the local music scene.

Kickstarter is a web service that helps artists and and creatives crowd-source fundraising for projects. If the project achieves its goal within a finite window then Kickstarter cuts them a check, if they don’t realize the goal then no one is out anything. Breanne Marie has almost half of what she needs ($3,200) to record her debut album.

I think on the eve of our great Homegrown Music Festival, and the same day our Trampled by Turtles are appearing on National TV, this would be a great time to send another promising Duluth artist along on her way. The suggested pledge amount is $10, but even if you don’t pledge anything, take a few minutes and listen to her very compelling, bittersweet story of how “music saved my life.” And help spread the word, too, if she doesn’t raise the donations she needs on Kickstarter in the next two weeks she goes back to zero, which means she’ll have to resort to bake sales to gather the cash, she says.

Per a Facebook post I see that Breanne Marie's project has just $763.00 (or less) to raise in the next 4 days.  So let's see if we can't help push her over the edge.  Click the image above to go to her kickstarter page.

I caught the end of a great set she and Evan played at Sir Ben's Saturday. Can't wait to hear the CD she puts together.

Looks like she did it.  I look forward to hearing the new album. I also like seeing successful Homegrown Duluth Arts and Culture crowdsourcing.  (Is crowdsourcing the correct term?) Anyway, when we all do better we all do better.  Yay Duluth.  Good luck Breanne.
