A silly, heartfelt letter from Chelsey.
Serious note, real quick. I wouldn’t be doing this “asking you for money” thing if I thought I could do this without your help.
If you know me, you know I work my ass off to the point of being annoying. You know I have a hard time asking for help. You know I sink every penny I have into Fairy Bones. And you know I fucking hate asking for money.
I’ve had people online and at our shows tell me that they related to my lyrics, or that they had one of our songs on repeat when they were sad or happy, or that our music helped them in some way.
I love those comments. I feel the same way. I like that being in a band is beneficial to both of us.
Nonetheless, it is expensive to continue to record music in the way we want to. A band is like a start-up business.
That’s why we are asking. Because I firmly believe art is mutually beneficial. If you like our music, our shows, our videos, our hair.. We need your help to continue.
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Thank you. And while I’m at it, thank you to these people who do and have made this band function and made me think “we can totally do this. guyz!” -

AND thank you thank you to all of you guys who think my Facebook posts are sometimes funny. Who give me hugs even though I’m dripping sweat at shows. Who participate in my insane ideas without complaint.
I admire and appreciate all of you.
This is the link to our campaign. We have 10 days left. Thank you for helping in all the ways you already have. We very much won’t let you down (I’M NOT GOOD AT HANDLING DISAPPOINTMENT).
Love. All the love to you. You’re all bangerang.
