Should I rebuy the lyric book? Will my name still be in it?

At the moment there isn’t a book to rebuy...however. We really hooe to manufacture it in the future, and all names will still be inside .

We will use emails provided to pledge for bulk mailing future ohGr plans. Also, the ohGr Facebook group, page,, instagram, and YouTube are good sources of information.

I was waiting for this whole mess to resolve, and it looks like it won't be. I'm now wondering what I do about the lyric book I paid for. Is there someway I can still get mine? Or is it too late to get a refund or get the item?

Hey Robin, we have not reciened any funds from the entire campaign pledge is not giving refunds at all.

Are you on Facebook ?

Yes I am and how unfortunate pledge turned out this way. I really like this band and want to support you however I can.

I purchased a signed lyric book last year sometime and since have changed my email. I’m not on Facebook, and not receiving any emails about what’s going on. What should I do?

We are all in a holding pattern.
Are
you aware pledge spent all your pledges on their expenses leaving ohGr without any resources ?
that’s the ongoing issue. Not much we can do, but see if they work it out,

We are trying fund the book, but it will be at a loss. So it’s hard with all the other direction ancial losses.

Sorry, and thanks for the patience.

A signed Tricks CD seems to be available for $125 USD + shipping on ebay at the moment... I would like to somehow send some unopened CDs back to the band if you're not getting paid through pledge.

No thanks to Pledge, but maybe there is a light at the end of this long, dark tunnel:

Thanks for posting, saw this earlier.
It is a company offering a 4 percent loan against an advance on streaming income. Looks good at first glance.

I'm just hoping that if a few artists can afford the hit in interest, it at least frees up a little bit of the log-jamb for others.

Checkin' in to see where the discussion is going.
Wanted to take a moment to thank Mark Walk for being so on top of fan questions and comments. I know we all appreciate it and I'm sure we know it's tiring for you amidst all this...frustrating for ohGr can't even begin to describe it. Oh, hey 'Pledge', if you're monitoring, one of my orders is still in limbo, the one that you even took my add'l money to upgrade to signed, yeah, I'd like us all to see that fulfilled ya know, when you set things right with the band. I don't want a refund - I want Pledge to own up. Godspeed with your new people on board, turn it around, it's a platform we all would like to thrive.

Really gutted really wanted the signed lyric book for Tricks... OhGr is my hero... I have just been struggling recently because I got hit by a car, and could only afford it now. And now it's SOLD OUT!!!... me being an idiot... if anyone has a spare please let me know.

Artist response

Mark Walk commented

Dan. The book is marked sold out because Pledge has mismanaged funds,
We are looking at some different options.
If you purchased a product from the ohGr pledge store you would be on our mailing list.
If not, are you in the ohGr Facebook group ?

Thanks to the ohGr crew for the email blast. I only hope that everybody (honestly, I'm pretty confident already does ;-) understand(s) the pain of dealing with a zukerberg-break-things-fail-fast mentality (that, case in point, obviously has yuuuuuge weaknesses). I know (for myself) that communication is key and can cut a ton of slack - so thank you!

Just noticed that number of comments to latest update dropped from 51 to 39.

The last update is gone entirely. Ohgr just sent an email saying that they are able to post any new updates. Hopefully it's just a glitch... a really convenient glitch....

Artist response

Mark Walk commented

I reported the issue to pledge. But emails work

JoAnna DellRuiz

JoAnna DellRuiz commented

It's better by email anyway since my phone alerts me. I really hope they aren't blocking you guys from posting. That would be really messed up to do on top of all this other crap they're pulling.

Mark Walk commented

It’s dsicribed as a glitch.

There are some new people on board with pledge. Im cautiously hopeful they can solve the issues, and restore the platforms reputation.

Here's to hoping it works out for everyone involved!

Any chance there will be a reprint of the CD? I would love to have a physical version. It seems like there are some problems with PledgeMusic though. I would buy it wherever it was available! Thanks for making such a great album.

Artist response
Mark Walk

Mark Walk commented

Yes. We had plans for repressing everything.
We are just working out a way to do it since Pledge has spent our money on their business expansion..

So sorry to hear that. :( The album is great, and I am sure things will work out.
