New @Kickstarter – Reviewing the most recent music crowdfunding projects

Here are my short reviews of the latest music crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter:

„Girl“ – by Jarrod Milton & Meya
– the pitch video is quite unpersonal
– I don’t understand what „Girl“ is about
– more time and efforts should have been invested in creating the rewards
– the campaign is obviously addressed only to friends and family
– no project FAQs
My prediction: not successful
My recommendation: don’t pledge

Re: Bach
– no pitch video
– project description is too short, more information would be great
– only 3 rewards and quite expensive
+ project FAQs
My prediction: rather not successful
My recommendation: don’t pledge

Birth of MiLawd. Reggae/Dancehall Album
– the pitch video is quite unpersonal
– the project description is quite unpersonal, no call to action
– no project FAQs
My prediction: not successful
my recommendation: don’t pledge

Mike Brunacini – Cherry Springs
– pitch video by Bruno is quite alright, but echoing the project description isn’t very cool
+ project description is OK
– no project FAQs
– rewards are only available for US fans
My prediction: with some changes the project could be successful
My recommendation: do pledge, if you like Powerpop and live in the US

Support The Dream
– the pitch video doesn’t have a message
+/- the project description is personal, but should be more about the music
– no project FAQs
– more Rewards
My prediction: with a good deal of work and creativity the campaign could be successful
My recommendation: wait and see how it develops, maybe pledge later

Travelling Marionette Band and Artists
– no pitch video, a video would definitely make the project more vivid
+/- probably a cool project if you read the description
– only available in AU
– no project FAQs
+/-more work should be invested in creating rewards
My prediction: not successful
My recommendation: don’t pledge

A Night to Remember
– no pitch video
– almost no project description
– almost no rewards
My prediction: not successful
My recommendation: don’t pledge

1431: The Road Less Traveled
+ very personal pitch video
– there should be more details in the project description
+/- cool rewards, but no rewards for less than 25 $
My prediction: successful with some upgrades on the project page
My recommendation: pledge if you’re into country/folk
