Local band Leslie has tapped into an online resource, Kickstarter, to fund their latest album release.

Kickstarter is a website that allows organization, bands, and any other individual with a project in mind to reach out to the masses for donations. It's an all-or-nothing situation; if you don't meet your fundraising goal by a set date, you don't get the dough. The fundraising program has become increasingly popular among independent artists and bands.

And thanks to Kickstarter, Leslie's new album, Lord, Have Mercy, is a reality.
