|Eisley at SXSW 2011|
The first time I heard about pledge projects when a longtime blogging friend tagged me in a post on Facebook and said, “Hey, you might be interested in this since you like local music!” The band was Harrison Hudson – a duo from Tennessee I had never heard before. I clicked the link to their Kickstarter campaign and learned all about how pledging worked. More than anything, I’ll admit, as a music fan I was thoroughly charmed by the idea of playing a role in recording an album. Isn’t that every fan’s dream?
