Entering the final week on Kickstarter

Posted by | Kickstarter, Music, News, The Quarterly | No Comments

As anyone who has ran a Kickstarter campaign will know, counting down the final week is always the most exciting part of the journey. 

With 8 days left, we still find ourselves rubbing our eyes in disbelief when we see we’ve nearly tripled our minimum funding target. Seriously, running an all-or-nothing funding campaign is pretty nerve-wracking stuff as no matter how many countless nights of planning you do, you still have no idea whether people will want to get involved or not.

Fortunately for us, you’re all a bloody lovely bunch and we honestly can’t thank you enough for your continued support. Lot’s of exciting stuff has happened for The Quarterly over the past few days, but before we get into that, let us start by saying a personal thanks to all of our newest backers:

Melanie. Christina Lenna. Mike Giles. Kathleen Coram. Beth May. LaRayne Loucks. Skittle Shaw. Amer A Majid. Nnena Alice Nwakodo. Caleb Williamson. Matthieu Herblin. Roman Ruska. Tsukasa Tanimoto. Az Mitchell. Thomas Methe. Richard Wynn. Julie Adams. Romke Hoogwaerts. Tim Johnson.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You rule. Hard.

Communion Music

In issue 3 of The Quarterly, we speak to the folks at independent record label, Communion Music. Originally founded in 2006 as a weekly live music night by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear’s Den) and acclaimed produced Ian Grimble, Communion have achieved a remarkable amount since their humble beginnings.

To give you all a taste of what to expect from the full printed feature, head over to our Features page to read an exclusive in-depth interview with co-founder Ben Lovett as he talks all about what drives Communion’s small team to keep striving for more without ever sacrificing integrity.

BrewDog

As most of our English readers will probably be aware, BrewDog are an independent beer brewery with pubs up and down the United Kingdom. We first met the good people at BrewDog when they kindly agreed to donate some free beer to our Issue 2 launch party. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to get to know a few of the people who work their balls off to make BrewDog the extremely popular company it is today. In Issue 3 of The Quarterly, photographer Roo Lewis, spends a day with the team at BrewDog’s pub in Shoreditch to capture a fragment of the BrewDog lifestyle.

To give yet another teaser of what to expect from the full feature, head over to our Features page to read an honest (and quite funny) interview with BrewDog’s Events & Sponsorship Guy, Mark Hislop.

 The next steps

With just one week to go, we’re extremely keen to keep pushing to try and break through the 4K barrier on Kickstarter as it’ll mean more people see our contributors work, and we’ll have the budget we need to ensure Issue 4 of The Quarterly is an absolute success.

An awful lot of our top-tier rewards have already been snapped up but one thing that happens quite a lot on Kickstarter is that people suddenly change their mind at the last minute and drop out for one reason or another. On this occasion, one of two backers for our very top-tier reward GROUP HUG has done just this. At first we were a little shocked to hear such news, but we’re not too stressed as it now gives someone else the opportunity to get involved in Issue 4. Head over to our Kickstarter page to read more about this extremely limited reward.

One week to go. Let’s smash it out the park.

Brother and Bones

In Issue Three of The Quarterly, photographer Matt Holloway gives us an exclusive look at what it’s like to be the on tour photographer for acclaimed alt-rock/acoustic five piece, Brother & Bones.

As one of the few unsigned British bands which have rocketed to success over the last couple of years, Matt’s signature high-energy photography captures the visual nuances which make life on the road such an exciting, adventurous, and truly human place to be.

The article in Issue 3 features a selection of never-before-seen photos from Matt’s life on tour and his personal insight into what it’s like to be part of the Brother & Bones family.

To see a glimpse of the magic you can expect from his full feature in Issue Three, check out some of his published work on our features page here.
