Ellie released an EP over the summer titled With You Now. It was good - the kind of good that made you want more than a handfull of songs. Holcomb, also being a smart lady, figured out that she should record more, so she'll be releasing her first full-length project, As Sure As The Sun, on February 18, 2014 through Full Heart Music. She has written ten brand new songs and each one has been carefully woven with scripture into the lyrics. She has gotten a ton of encouragement from her husband. She has it all pretty on track.
This is where you come in. Ellie started a Kickstarter fundraiser to help get some of the money to record the album. She set a goal of $40,000 in 50 days with hopes and a lot of prayers that they would make it. In three days, the goal was met and surpassed! With the cost of recording and promotion of the record set to cost well over $40,000, there is still plenty of music things the extra money can go towards.
Holcombe decided to add some fun stretch goals to show her absolute appreciation to all of those who chipped in to help.
EVERY BACKER will receive a PDF of the story behind each song on the album, handwritten by Ellie + lyrics and chords for all songs. (This goal has been met)
EVERY BACKER will have access to a PRIVATE Kickstarter Backer Only LIVE StageIt show from her living room.
TIER 3 AND HIGHER backers will receive a VINYL copy of the album.
TIER 3 AND HIGHER backers will be invited to join Ellie for a PRIVATE Kickstarter Backer Only Release Party in Nashville. She will perform a few of the new songs and you can all celebrate together!! (You'll handle your own travel arrangements)
Fans have plenty of time to get in on the fun as the campaign runs through January 7, 2014.
