We reached our goal and are super thankful to everyone for helping us reach it so quick. We are still going to be in need of a lot of funds though and so we’d thought we’d offer a little new incentive near the end.
Sooooo…. For anyone who pledges $1 or more you’ll get a digital download of our Christmas single that we’re putting out this year. Yay!...Christmas!!!
Hey everybody! Thanks so much for all of your support thus far! We met our goal of 1000 buckaroos super quick and we’ve all been completely encouraged by everyone’s generous support. Many many many thanks to everyone who pitched in. And props to everyone who provided sound clips, we have quite a few interesting clips to work with and it’s going to be a lot of fun mixing things in.
So, we spent a week with our old drummer, “Cool T–Eddie Darksbane–Torrence" in the ‘Brown Owl’ studio in Nashville laying down drums, guitars and bass and we now have about 90% of the album recorded and ready to go. We still have some miscellaneous instruments to record between now and the time we go to mix, but overall I think we were all really excited about the amount that we we’re able to actually get recorded in the short amount of time that we had in the studio. And thank be unto Konrad at the Brown Owl who graciously allowed us to stink up the place and make use of the great space they have there.
We’re all back in our respective towns now, scattered across the ole U.S of A., but we’re trying our best to keep up the momentum with the record so that it can finally see the light of day. We’ll continue throwing out some updates and I’m hoping to actually get some clips of songs we’re working on up on our blog soon.
We’ve got 8 days left in this little kickstarter fundraiser, and like I said, we’re completely thankful for everyone’s generosity…. but… if you we’re thinking of donating, please don’t be deterred by the fact that we’ve reached our goal, we’re still in need of a lot of funds for production, and anything donated would surely not be extra.
You people are the tops!
