The websites PledgeMusic and Kickstarter have been receiving a lot of pub lately, and rightfully so. With many recognizable acts joining the ranks of bands and artists looking to fans to help fund their latest releases and projects, both noteworthy sites have become viable options for artists to put together enough capital to give the world their music, while also rewarding fans in the process.
At Cause A Scene, we’re all about helping out the independent artists, and with that, we bring you the second edition in our monthly series of posts highlighting some of our favorite artists that are currently looking to fund their latest projects. Show them some love, won’t you?

Back in April we had the fortunate opportunity to have Seth Wood play at a house show and we were hooked on his music early on. He’s wrapping up a Kickstarter campaign with about a week to go and close to a third of his goal left to raise. Highly recommend going to his Kickstarter page ASAP and making a pledge to help Seth release his EP. For $250, you and a friend can attend a listening party hosted by Seth himself.

We’re re-featuring Nashville songstress Angel Snow this month after seeing her make a surprise appearance at the recent Communion showcase at The Basement. She has a singular voice that demands to be heard, and in last Thursday’s show, she exhibited unbelievable poise when the sound system had some major issues and she opted to play the rest of her set unplugged. A lesser artist may have been phased, but Angel Snow took it all in stride and wowed the audience anyway. She is releasing her new album this fall, but needs some more help in order to do so. Among the exclusive items available are 2 VIP tickets + meet/greet passes to a show in 2012 for $50 and the chance to introduce the band from the stage at a show for $75. What makes this project even cooler, is that Angel is donating 10% of the money raised to the American Cancer Society.
That’s all we’ve got for this month as the other artists/projects we really dig have 55+ days left in their pledge campaigns. We’ll have them up first thing in September. So if you’re feeling generous, we hope you’ll throw some support the way of two fantastic Nashville artists.
