Scranton musician using crowd


funding Web site to back new album

P
HILADELPHIA – Two weeks ago, Chet
Williams didn’t have any money for a
new album. That changed when he
signed up for Kickstarter.
Williams, 20, a Scranton native known for his
work with So Long, Pluto and Awkward Silence,
had no idea about the site until a friend intro-

duced him to the concept.


Kickstarter, www.kickstarter.com, allows individuals
to begin a project and use “crowd funding,” or public fi-
nancial support, to bring it to life. According to the site’s
blog, more than $7 million was donated to a variety of
projects in March 2011 alone.
The Temple junior marketing major launched his pro-
ject to fund the solo al-
