Hello everyone—Angela here. I am very excited to announce the newest addition to the Doubleclicks Records family: The PDX Broadsides!
The PDX Broadsides have signed with Doubleclicks Records for their next album project: Trust Issues, and we are thrilled to be able to work with these talented musicians to make their next album their biggest and best ever.
We created Doubleclicks Records as a way to help other bands create successful music careers on the Internet. The Doubleclicks have found great success on Kickstarter, Patreon, and more over the past six years. Not only is our album funding crowdsourced, so is our tour planning, our promotions, and many of our videos! The Internet provides a variety of opportunities for bands to connect directly with their audiences in ways that weren’t possible before, and we have benefited from many of them. Doubleclicks Records is a way to share that knowledge and experience with other artists.
The PDX Broadsides are a Portland-based nerd band whose tight harmonies, inventive and fun song ideas and catchy tunes have made them a huge hit in the Northwest nerd scene over the last few years. Their last album, Something’s Rotten, has some of my favorite tunes—including “Smile,” a song about street harassment, a song so true and so funny that it hurts. The forthcoming album, Trust Issues, is about things that scare the Broadsides, and also invites listeners into the worlds of Westworld, Nightvale, Star Wars, and more. My favorite single is “We Want Rey,” a song about representation in media (based on the “Where’s Rey?” toy controversy!)
The PDX Broadsides album is on Kickstarter right now. We’re managing the campaign, which hit its goal in its first day and is well on its way toward achieving some fantastic stretch goals. The project has already hit the front page of “what’s trending” in Kickstarter music and has been lauded as a “Project We Love” by the platform. The project will run until May 11!
Doubleclicks Records also manages singer-songwriter Lucia Fasano, whose debut album was funded by a Kickstarter campaign last fall. The Doubleclicks Records-managed campaign raised over 200% of its goal, and allowed Lucia to create a music video and go on tour in addition to releasing her album, Radio Silence!
Welcome to the label, PDX Broadsides! We are thrilled to have you. And everyone else: check out the campaign!
