10 in 20: A Lexington Recording Project has produced original songs and videos from some of
Kentucky's most talented musicians. We have now re-mastered each track to press a vinyl album—and we are offering unique items to supporters who help us accomplish the next step.
To date, the 10 in 20 music videos (created by Jennifer Miller '91, the Executive Producer of 10 in 20) have been enjoyed more than 20,000 times. The songs have streamed on BandCamp thousands more times, and aired on local radio stations WRFL and WUKY. Indie taste-maker Paste Magazine's article "10 Kentucky Bands You Should Listen to Now" included three bands from 10 in 20: Matt Duncan, The Fanged Robot, and Oh My Me. Paste gave us a nod, too, referring to "the excellently produced Lexington-based recording series '10 in 20.'"
Creating a vinyl album adds a new way to appreciate these artists, plus another set of major expenses. By offering pre-sales and unique perks, we hope to raise these funds on the front end, then be able to share profits with our ten bands as soon as the albums arrive in November. Pledges for artist-specific exclusives will benefit that person or group even sooner!
Also, we will donate 10% of funds past our target to Central Music Academy, which provides no-cost lessons to children in downtown Lexington.
