10 in 20 on PledgeMusic

10 in 20: A Lexington Recording Project has launched a crowdfunding campaign to create our compilation album! Please visit our page on PledgeMusic to help raise funds to press a vinyl album, and receive rare perks from your favorite KY musicians!

10 in 20 has brought you digital delights, sounds and sights, spotlighting some of Kentucky’s most talented musicians. We have now re-mastered each track to press a vinyl album—and you can get unique items while helping us accomplish the next step.

To date, the 10 in 20 music videos have been enjoyed more than 20,000 times. The songs have streamed on BandCamp thousands more times and aired on WRFL and WUKY.

Indie taste-maker Paste Magazine‘s article “10 Kentucky Bands You Should Listen to Now” included three bands from 10 in 20: Matt Duncan, The Fanged Robot, and Oh My Me. Paste gave us a nod, too, referring to “the excellently produced Lexington-based recording series ’10 in 20.’”

Creating a vinyl album adds a new way to appreciate these artists, but unfortunately adds another set of major expenses. By offering pre-sales and unique perks, we hope to raise these funds on the front end, then be able to share profits with our ten bands as soon as the albums arrive in November. And when you make a pledge for an artist-specific exclusive, that person or group will earn money even sooner!

Also, PledgeMusic will direct 10% of funds past our target to Central Music Academy, which provides no-cost lessons to children in downtown Lexington.
