This week’s Utah Crowd-Funding project is all about making music as sweet as moonshine.
Salt Lake City folksinger Michelle Moonshine (real name: Michelle Gomez) has been playing around local clubs for awhile now — and sometimes ventures away from the Zion Curtain. (Last month she played a few gigs in Seattle.)
She’s recording her first five-track EP, and she’s seeking $5,000 via a Kickstarter campaign to pay for it.
So far, she’s earned $385 in pledges — just over 7 percent of her goal — with 19 days to go before her May 25 deadline.
Benefits for backers range from a song download (for $5) to a private house concert (for $1,500).
If you have a crowd-funding project you’d like mentioned on The Cricket blog, email it to: email@example.com. Be sure to put "crowd funding" in the subject line.
