This is our time - to give back! 100% of our new album sales will provide instruments to the less fortunate, but we need your help!!
We are extremely excited to announce that we will be recording our next album this winter with critically acclaimed producer, Rick Beato (Needtobreathe, Shinedown, Trey Anastasio, Decyfer Down, and many more), at Blackdog Sound Recording studio in Atlanta, GA. Picking up where our 2011 release of 3 Reasons for Fighting left off, this album includes convicting themes of redemption and the message that although we are flawed and have made mistakes, they can be forgiven, used to discover our purpose, and make a difference for the better.
But more than recording an album, this is about living out its theme. That is why we are donating 100% of the proceeds from every album sale to the purchase of musical instruments and educational materials for those in our own community, and around the world, that have the desire, but not the opportunity to learn and play music. Our hope is that these instruments give those less-fortunate the same opportunities that were afforded to us growing up; giving them an avenue to explore their creativity and harness their inspirations.
The future appears to be bright and our plan is to help thousands with the proceeds of this album. These individuals will be identified by those who wish to partner with us on this endeavor including yourself! We also have existing relationships with organizations already in the field working to feed the hungry and support impoverished communities around the world that will help identify exactly who could benefit from this mission. Throughout the journey, we will document every personal delivery to keep everyone in the loop as to where and how the proceeds are being used.
We certainly cannot do this without you. It takes significant financial backing to create a quality album. Most records you hear on the radio are backed by funding from major record companies and investors. We plan to record an album of the same quality, without the budget and support of a major label, so that we can remain independent and flexible in the music marketplace. This is where the support of our fans is crucial! Because we will not be making the money back on the sale of the record, we are asking you to partner with us to help cover the recording costs.
Here's how it works:
Our goal is to raise at least $30,000 in 30 days. In exchange for your support, in addition to our eternal gratitude, we've set up a really cool rewards program we think you're gonna love. You can claim any reward at or under the dollar amount you have pledged. Every contribution, no matter how large or small, helps get us closer to reaching the goal, so please give something. If we don't reach the set amount before time runs out, no transactions will be made and no rewards will be given out. Which means no record will be made, and the positive impact it is intended to bring will never be realized!
At the risk of sounding cliché, we simply can't do this without your help. Take this leap of faith with us today by pledging and by sharing our Start Some Good campaign with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and by word-of-mouth. We can't thank you enough for helping us accomplish this dream and we promise to make you proud with not only our best record yet, but in striving to bring positive change to people's lives.
MELODIME is a piano-driven roots rock band that grew up performing music in the hayloft of a their horse farm. MELODIME, meaning memories in the form of sound, is heavily influenced by an appreciation for the past, while keeping their music rootsy, catchy, and original.
MELODIME has built their brand from the ground up by consistently being one of the hardest working bands in the mid-Atlantic area over the past 5 years. They've stuck to their core values performing quality music that has genuine meaning and is easily to relate to. "One thing you never question about a MELODIME song is whether they put their all into it. Each one is not just musically addictive, but is fit to bursting with the emotion and energy the artists have infused into it; it's not commercial, it's better: it's art." - The Trades
