High-five and Super Smoochesl!!!

Let’s show these people some love! These are the people who have been INSTRUMENTAL (pardon the pun!) in getting my music out into the world. Without their financial (not to mention emotional) support, there might not be Karyn Ellis albums & videos for you to enjoy.

Album Supporters: More Than A Hero

Over 125 people jumped in and backed the new album, More Than A Hero, coming out this October 2013. So many that they warrant their very own…
Wall of Awesome

    I think I remembered everyone… but if for some reason your name doesn’t appear here and it should, it is merely a reflection of my haphazard ways of making lists! Don’t be shy!! Let me know, and I will add you!

      How does ‘supporters’ work ?

    • karynell says:

      Hi Brian!

      Basically the not-so-short answer is… the people on this friends page have supported me in making my albums and music video by pitching in financially to them.

      And it so happens I am about to embark on another fundraising campaign again soon… yep, I’m making another album! In fact, part of the reason I am coming to Toronto this summer is to go into the studio to start the recording process.

      I am inviting people such as yourself to become supporters at varying levels, depending on what you can afford / what appeals to you. As low as $5 to $10… then there are levels like, preordering a CD ($25)… getting your name in the liner notes ($50)… getting a one-of-a-kind photo taken in the studio ($80) … and upwards from there …$120… $250… $500… and more!

      It’s been a wonderful way to fundraise for my albums, inviting folks like you to essential become “patrons” of my project – to really get involved in making sure the album happens. If you want to be part of this friends page in the soon future, be sure to keep your eyes open for news! People on my mailing list will be getting their invitation very soon!

      Hope that answers your question!
