although 21,000 seems "meager" that really is quite a hefty amount to ask for just to record a few audio tracks. it can be done with a much cheaper cost.

Dirty truth of crowdfunding. There has long been a question about what really happens with the funds, and Ms. Roche puts herself on the line to answer that question. I doubt Roche thought that crowdfunding was a "silver bullet" as much as an alternative to her experiences with record company project managers. Essentially, the campaign took up too much time, and it's possible she could have raised the same amount by skipping the crowdfunding sites and just called those friends and family all by herself. Sadly, because she didn't make the Kickstarter goal, she had to start from scratch with Indieagogo. Lots of wasted time and wasted favors, no doubt.

21k is not a hefty amount to record an album professionally, with a real band. Studio time, mixing, mastering & manufacturing usually cost between 20-30k with the higher end including a producer's fees.
