What Is the Anna/Kate Band Up To…?

The Anna/Kate Band are FINALLY recording their FIRST album, and fundraising to do it! We’re making an album at Grand Street Recording in Brooklyn, with amazing engineers Ken Rich and Jake Lummus. The studio and the engineers have worked with Ingrid Michaelson, Ani DiFranco, Angus & Julia Stone, and Benjamin Scheuer of The Lion…. and we’re next. 

HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN: maybe you are our dear friend (hai frand!), or maybe you are our family (hey mom!), or maybe we’ve met at a show (hey, we like you!), or maybe you’re another queer person surfing the internet (love ya, bae). Maybe you’re just your own person on PledgeMusic, stumbling across this campaign page (welcome!). WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE OUR FIRST ALBUM, ON OUR OWN TERMS. We’re just a band sitting around, all dressed for the party, with nowhere to go.

What We Need & What You Get

Priority 1 is recording; from studio day rates to mixing and mastering, artist stipends to rehearsal costs, and more. 
Priority 2 is running a successful PledgeMusic campaign; from paid promotional ads on Facebook and Instagram to all the goodies you can pick up at our Pledge store below.
Priority 3 is promoting our album; help fund our work with an awesome PR company! Help fund mini-tours throughout the Northeast and California to spread the good news of queer folk pop!

Other Ways You Can Help
Our music is resistance. But, our music is celebration too.

We choose to believe that there IS an audience for queer folk-pop. We choose to believe there’s an audience for MORE representation, MORE accountability, MORE questioning, MORE…. joy. We think the world needs MORE artists, and MORE representation. MORE than ever.

Word-of-mouth is everything. Get your friends excited about queer folk-pop, and PledgeMusic.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts,

The Anna/Kate Band
