Friends of Jars of Clay!
We are well into 2014, and if you haven’t heard, this is a special year in the story of Jars of Clay.
20 years ago, we wrote our first songs together in college, and with the recent release of Inland, we are found grateful for the continued opportunity to share our stories and songs and hear how they connect to yours. After discussing how to celebrate such a moment, we’ve planned an exciting opportunity with PledgeMusic.
Recently, we’ve been playing StageIt concerts, featuring each album in our catalog. Your positive feedback from those acoustic, intimate arrangements gave us an idea. We have decided, in our 20th year, to record your 20 favorite Jars songs in that acoustic fashion.
Here’s how it will work- when you pledge, you will not only get the digital album of these 20 songs, but you will also get a vote on what songs make it on the record. Over the next several weeks, we will use a “polling” function here on PledgeMusic that will allow you all to cast your votes. The Top Two songs per album from our 10 studio albums will then make up the 20 songs. So this album will be created based on your votes!!
For those of you wanting more than digital downloads, we will make CDs available for you plus both black and colored vinyl. (And if you love vinyl like we do, then you can even get a vote on what vinyl color!)
And PledgeMusic will also allow us to offer 10% of all money we raise after meeting our production goal to Blood:Water Mission.
Besides the new Jars 20 album, we dug into our archives and found some unique and cool items to offer you long-time fans. Some of these we will make available as time goes on via this project and some we have right now, like our Stringtown CDs and our White Elephant Sessions CDs. Stay tuned for more fun stuff!
Ah, but there’s EVEN more! Dun-dun-duuuuun! We are putting a limited number of tickets on sale for a very special fan-celebration weekend event on September 26th & 27th, right here in Nashville.
We will be playing a special intimate show at the Franklin Theater which accommodates less than 300 people. It will include a special reception at our new Blood:Water Mission offices and a fun Q & A Studio Tour at our Gray Matters Studio. We will also be thinking up some other cool fan-related events for you all to partake in that weekend…more to follow on that in the months to come.
Of course, we would like to invite all of you into town for this amazing weekend but know that not all of you can travel, so we will be developing ways to involve all of you as we continue on with this exciting project.
We hope you are as excited as we are for this fan-curated, intimately recorded 20 song favorites album, and we especially hope you can join us here in the Nashville area for our Special Jars 20 Weekend event in September.
Lastly, we are humbled by your continued support of Jars over these years, and we are excited for what’s to come!
