Teenage Musician Uses The Crowdfunded Loog Guitar To Crowdfund Her Album - TechCrunch

Teenage Musician Uses The Crowdfunded Loog Guitar To Crowdfund Her Album - TechCrunch | Acoustic Guitars and Bluegrass | Scoop.it

When we last left off with the Loog Guitar by Rafael Atijas it had blown past its funding goals on Kickstarter in early 2011 and shipped with much fanfaremaking making it one of the first successful Kickstarter projects on our radar.In the interim it’s become a mini-phenomenon and, most important, people have started using the three-stringed instruments to record albums.

 

Case in point: Pip Blom is a 16-year-old singer-songwriter who wrote an entire record using the Loog. You can listen to the whole thing on Bandcamp and she is selling the albums to pay for a trip to Teenage Kicks, a band camp in Vlieland in the Netherlands. In short, it’s a crowdfunded project that helped student complete another crowdfunded projects.
