Ginger’s at it again! Earlier today (actually 7:00pm UK time, 2:00pm Central) he kicked off his third PledgeMusic campaign, this time for an album called Practical Musician to be recorded over the next 5 weeks in Wales by what has become known as the Ginger Wildheart Band: Ginger, Chris Catalyst, Denzel, Rich Jones, Victoria Liedtke, and Random Jon Poole. This group of musicians was involved in the 555% project and became part of Ginger’s touring band.
One of Ginger’s goals with this campaign was to beat the times to reach the target set by the the 555% campaign, which reached 100% in 6 hours, and the Mutation/Hey! Hello! campaign, which clocked in at a mere 90 minutes. Based on the success of those campaigns and Ginger’s voracious fan base, it should come as no surprise that it currently appears the goal was met in only 20 minutes! As of this writing at about 1 hour 10 minutes, the campaign has reached 126% with 1069 pledgers.
Based on the previous campaigns, I’m expecting great things, and it should be interesting to see how high this thing goes. So watch the video above, and then go make your pledge.
