Our first EP is recorded and ready for the finishing stages and we want YOU to reap the rewards.
Hi: My name is Clayton Jeff Jeffries [the artist formally known as Jeff Dahl]---but everyone just calls me Jeff. I'm the writer/producer/engineer/guitar player and chief bottle washer for N'Obody [the band]. You were introduced to the other players in the video. We all hope you liked listening to it as much as we liked making it.
If you like bands like the Cars, the Pretenders, Talking Heads, the Cure, Tom Petty---well, you get the idea---I think you'll like what you hear in these songs.
I know that this music can be for anyone but if you're between the ages of 35-60 and you're tired of not having any music made and marketed to you---listen again and keep reading, this may be just what you're looking for.
[To listen to all 6 songs go HERE]
What I'd like to offer you here is the opportunity to become the Record Company for N'Obody [the band] and release our first EP: When N'Obody Speaks...
But what does that mean? Watch this:
The Record Companies have pretty much folded up their tents for anything but the most commercial of music [and yes, that means 12 to 25 year olds]. But every function mentioned in that video clip still has to be done to complete a record---and that's after everything's written and played.
One of the main things to be done in the recording process to make records sound ''professional'' is called: Mixing. It's hugely technical and even some professional musicians refer to it as the mystic art.
To help explain this mystic art here's a test sample:
[Note---You might need to turn the volume up on your speakers]
Did you hear the difference? [No, I didn't fiddle with the volume. That's how it comes out of the computer].
This song, Heaven, has been test mixed. It's not even done yet an the difference is huge. To actually make these recording sound ''professional'' they should be mixed in a professional studio set up for that purpose [Makes sense, huh?].
[UPDATE---You can listen to the songs as they get finished; http://www.nobodytheband.com/songs.html ]
Here's a picture of the closet these songs were recorded in:
And here's a picture of the studio they will be mixed in:
That's Veneto West Studios and the person who'll be doing the mixing is Ronan Chris Murphy. His credits include King Crimson, Terry Bozzio [Jeff Beck, Missing Persons], Tony Levin [Peter Gabriel, John Lennon, Pink Floyd] and many more. He's forever Producing and Mixing in Indonesia and Italy.
And of course there's the graphics, video, website, legal documents, copy writes filings, trademarks, packaging, marketing and sales that need to be done.
All these things to do to bring you FANTASTIC sounding songs [not to mention fabulously written and performed] in high quality packaging.
Truth is, you've always been the financier of the Record Companies. Every time you bought a record, CD or tape [?!!!]---YOU financed the whole industry.
When's the last time they sent you a thank you card?
Now you can directly finance the release of this record and collect all the swag [promotional items given away],the Record Companies used to give the Promoter, Retailers and Radio People [As a Record Company you don't get rewards---you get swag].
And WE send you a thank you card.
Here's a note on some of the swag:
Here's the Thank You card:
Please Note: It is not an insult or slight to us if you donate $1. We didn't spend all that time making this Thank You card just for the fun of it [Well, that's not entirely true...].
We'd LOVE to have at least one person in every State donate $1.
And we'll give you a Thank You card.
And here's the poster:
And here is a picture of the commemorative plaque [although it really doesn't do it justice---they are really nice]:
The 'Secret Single" is a 2 song CD that is your choice of songs [any two from the EP in any order you wish] with your, or any, name you want on the cover and CD [''Mary Peters" Secret Single]. Perfect as a gift.
Only Kickstarter supporters and radio station get the jewel case CD's
And in the end you get the most important and most intangible of all gifts:
You get to say, "I'm N'Obody's Record Company".
That's worth a bunch---at least to us.
