Aaron Woody Wood‘s Kickstarter campaign has ten days left. With 96 backers and $5,115 pledged, will he make it? You can help.
Sunday, August 29, is the deadline for the fundraiser. Wood put out the call on the fledgling (but apparently pretty successful) Kickstarter website, asking for friends and fans to come together and pledge for his new album.
But it’s an all-or-nothing affair: If the campaign doesn’t make it to the $9,000 goal, no one pays and the deal’s off.
Wood’s got a lot of fans around here — and in more states than good ol’ North Carolina, no doubt, after touring cross-country for years and landing a SubPop record deal with The Blue Rags, a (fortunately brief) move to New Orleans and an appearance on CMT with Sara Evans in Nashville. He’s descended from deep musical lineage, and most Ashevilleans know, there’s nothing he’s better suited for: “All I’ve ever known is playing music,” Wood says on his Kickstarter page.
He plays solo and with his band just about everywhere in town — event at Pritchard Park (yesterday during lunchtime). Woody’s a talented songwriter and an amazing guitar talent, and I think it would be pretty awesome if the community rallied to help him make this record.
