Roam is a band from the New York City area. We are raising money to make a record in Atlanta, GA.
WHY ARE WE RAISING MONEY?
We are an independent band and without the finances of a record label we need to raise money to pay for our recording, mastering and duplication costs. We think Kickstarter* is the perfect way to do that by letting you get involved. For those who don't know, to make a record you pay an engineer and/or producer to record your songs. Then you pay a mastering engineer to put the finishing touch on it. After that, we pay to have the record duplicated (have CDs made) because we think its awesome to hold a physical copy of music and the album art. Don't you?
*Remember with Kickstarter we only get your contribution to the project if we meet our total fundraising goal, so spread the word!
WHY ARE WE DOING IT IN ATL?
We are migrating south to Atlanta to work for a week with our friend Jeremy Griffith because he makes incredible recordings. Jeremy has worked on a ton of great projects and we are super excited to work with him.
WHEN WILL IT BE DONE?
We're hoping to have everything ready before the holidays. That means mixing, mastering and duplication done. If you contributed enough for a digital copy of the album you should be able to expect it in mid November. These things take time, but it will be worth the wait!
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?
Well if you're that awesome, and you probably are, you could tell a bunch of your friends about our project. We need a relatively small number of you guys to make a contribution and we can reach our goal. Thanks for your support! Hope to see you at a show soon!
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
