Kickstarter Backer Videos

Two very special backer videos we created a few weeks ago in all the hustle and bustle of finishing our CD.
For two very special people in our life — my sweet bestie Sarah and my Mootsie.  ENJOY!

Pre-Order Our New CD

The week of July 8, 2013, our debut CD Flying Home will FINALLY be available to pre-order via our website.  You will be able to pre-order both digital tracks and our physical CD.  Our apologies to all those who waited in June to begin pre-ordering.  Due to some unforeseen hiccups in production and ordering, our physical CDs are now on their way to the distribution center.

If you cannot wait to get your hands on a copy, we will be selling copies of our CD at all of our public gigs.

Enjoy the music, and please leave us your feedback on our “kudos” page.  Much aloha ~ A + C

 


Show Us Your Swag

Howdy!

Many of you are receiving, or have received, your CDs/swag bag this week.  YIPPEE!!!!

How’s the music?  We really hope you are enjoying it.

While we are happily exhausted, we are moving forward getting the CD ready for public consumption.  CDs should go on sale to the public mid-June to coincide with a relaunch of our rebranded and updated website, as well as our rebranded social media pages.

To keep up the momentum from our fabulous CD Release Party last Saturday, we’d love to see our fans showing off their new Mango Season swag!

If you’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media, can you help us out?  Take a picture of you with the Flying Home CD, t-shirt or stickers and post with @mangoseasonmusic @mangoseasonhi #FlyingHome.  Or send us your pics and we’ll post.  We can’t wait to see your pics!

Much aloha to each of you.  You rock our socks off! ~ A + C

P.S.  Here are some pics from our party Saturday…

 


Pick Up Your Kickstarter Swag Bag

Hey folks ~

Just a quick update if you are visiting or living in Honolulu right now.  Your swag bags will be available for direct pick-up at our CD Release Party tomorrow night.  Whoo hooo!

We understand if you cannot make it or be with us in person.  Although you will be greatly missed.

We want to send all our swag bags out this weekend.  About half of our bags were completed yesterday and are on their way as we speak.

However, we are still missing some of your mailing addresses.  If you haven’t provided us that info, please make sure to send me a note or leave me a comment below.  If we haven’t heard from you in a week, we’ll send you a personal reminder.

Have a great weekend and we hope to visit with you tomorrow.  Aloha ~ A + C

Can you believe it?

I KNOW! We are a bit speechless ourselves. = )

So, enjoy the full album: Download Flying Home

For those of you receiving swag bags and autographed CDs, your package will be in the mail next week.

OR…
you can opt to pick up your swag bag in person at our pop up release party on Saturday, June 1, 2013 in Honolulu. Open Your Invite! We really hope to see you there.

With deepest gratitude + aloha, A + C

 


Kickstarter Backer Videos, HI*Sessions & Kickstarter Starts

Happy Monday, all.  Another all-video love letter from us.  Enjoy!  ~ A + C

Backer Video – Make It Up to You (C&K) Dedicated to Bob Kitamura

Backer Video – Lanikai Moon (Mango Season Original) Dedicated to Roy Nakamura

Creative Process – Introducing our Kickstarter Stars.  This video showcases all our backers who are featured artists ON OUR DEBUT CD!  An awesome and FANTABULOUS job was delivered by all our stars.  This video also includes a hidden music gem at the end…

HI*Sessions – A famous, local musician meets a talented local videographer and *BOOM* HI*Sessions was created.  A weekly music program featured on KFVE Hawaii, HI*Sessions marries exceptional local music with music video quality visuals to bring the best musicians of Hawaii to your living room.  We were invited to be a featured artist this season and played all songs from our debut CD!

 


Flying Home T-Shirts & Stickers Printing

Howdy everyone ~

So much to share!

But, I know I can get really excited and wordy, so I’ll try and keep it brief.

The awesome designs for your t-shirts and stickers were approved and are now printing away in Chicago at Threadbird.  We shifted t-shirt brands (again!) because the designer and I agreed the American Apparel unisex t-shirts are just so darn comfy.  It should come out to be the same size wise but, you still have time to get in a shirt change if you feel you want to go bigger or smaller.  I included a pic of me rockin’ an AA medium shirt for scale (the hat is not for show…it’s kinda cold here in Honolulu right now…).

I also included pics of the final designs (the Kickstarter Supporter art goes on the right sleeve and is much smaller than the photo lets on).

You’ll also be happy to know that all of the final tracks are complete (yay!) and into the capable hands of the final mixing & mastering crew.  We should go to duplication in a week or so and then I can finally distribute our FIRST REWARDS – the digital downloads.

We are exhausted but happy.  It’s the final stretch.  You made this all possible and we cannot wait to celebrate when the CDs are here and into your hands.

So much aloha, A & C
