Who We Are, What This Is All About & How You Can Help:
Hi! We are Red Velvet Crush, a 5x award winning female fronted pop/rock band based out of Oz. (aka Kansas City, MO) We need your help in raising money for us to record our next EP in Nashville, TN w/ producer Josh Gleave and our studio drummer Lester Estelle!
Daniel and I have been performing actively since we were both young and we formed Red Velvet Crush in 2012 and since then we’ve had many cool opportunities as a band. We’ve toured regionally and nationally, receive radio airplay on dozens of stations across the world, released our first music video, gained sponsorships, won five awards for best acoustic act, female vocalist and pop band of the year and have opened up for bands such as Everclear, Lisa Loeb, Tantric and The Dreaming (Stabbing Westward.) We are a very hard working group (we do all of our own booking, management, songwriting, rehearse constantly, attend music conferences etc); Besides our original Red Velvet Crush shows, we also perform cover gigs 2-4x/week, work multiple part time jobs and have been completely DIY/self funded up until this point. For this next record we’ll be heading to Music City...Nashville, TN to work with producer Josh Gleave who is so incredibly talented and has helped us already bring new ideas to our music and these songs to life...along w/ our studio drummer, Lester Estelle who is miss Kelly Clarkson’s drummer among many others! We are very, very excited about the new music we have been working on as this is really a coming of age record and are so thrilled to share our new songs with you as they all have important/true stories to tell from the past few years. Musically, it will be a solid mix of both pop and rock. Red Velvet Crush’s next era and next chapter. Thank you for being a part of our next record..Any donations are greatly appreciated. Please share our Kickstarter on social media or however you can..Thank you again and we’ll see you on the road!
