Jocelyn, Pop/Rock band out of Iowa City, IA has shocked the music world by reaching their Kickstarter campaign goal of $5,000 in just ten minutes, and incase you were wondering, it didn’t stop there. With an unheard of $10,000 being raised in under 48 hours the band has reevaluated the campaign and announced an extended goal of $15,000 to replace two stolen guitars. In return, the band has promised to release a 10 video YouTube series of cover songs from fan favorites if this goal is met. They have also offered other rewards for donating fans such as allowing four fans and their friends to attend a music video shoot and selling items such as a signed guitar, a bass drum head used at their first show and the microphone used to record every demo ever made.

Thrilled with the overwhelming support their fans have showed for their Kickstarter campaign the band said, “This Kickstarter sends a major statement to some bands who have passed having us on their tours because they thought we just promoted and followed tours and never made a real impact on anyone. We’ll make sure they can’t ignore us now!”
Consisting of Landen Boyer, Alex Wiese, Steve Lydick and Josh Adams, Jocelyn is looking forward to touring this fall on the Timeless Tour, alongside Hello Highway and Once Upon A Time. As a special treat for fans, the first 30 tickets bought for each date receive a meet and greet with all the bands. To create buzz about the upcoming tour, the band has added tour-specific rewards on their Kickstarter, such as dinner with the band. To see the full tour schedule, head over to their website here.
The band will be releasing “Miss America,” their newest single later this month, as well as a music video for the track. In the meantime, be sure to check out “Storyline,” their latest album available on Itunes at: http://bit.ly/jocelynstoryline
