Your donations will help fund the completion and release of Wrong Way Driver's debut album!
Basically if you pre-order the record by pledging $, you'll get the 10 song album waaaay before any official release date.
Here's a little story thingy:
What began as a solo home recording project just for fun a few years ago has gradually become my main creative musical focus and has evolved into a real live band called Wrong Way Driver (which includes myself on guitar/vox and Brett Mielke on drums + special guests). Over the past several years the band has recorded many many songs and played several shows around Los Angeles.
We’ve been recording for some time now and it is really begining to take shape...
This album has been recorded in various apartments, at a friend’s now defunct studio and at a studio some friends and I started many years ago called The Ship in Eagle Rock, California. Aaron Espinoza of Earlimart (who now solely helms the Ship) was kind enough to let us sneak in during periods of down time and record. Several special guests have contributed their talents to the recordings as well (Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups, Charlie Wadhams, Hanford Pittman and Athena Le Grand have all stopped by). Recently, Brett and I went back into The Ship and tracked some brand new songs that are really taking shape, and I can't WAIT for people to hear them!!!!
...Everything is sounding great, but I want it to be better than that and I need some money to finish this thing properly so that you can listen to it for what I hope, will be for years to come! This has been a completely DIY, labor of love project...many favors were asked of many great people and now I have a favor to ask of you!!! Please pledge to fund the completion of the album!!! However, there will be no handouts accepted; any pledge gets you something! (Even $1.00!?)
If funding is achieved, the album will be whittled down to around 10 songs and properly mixed at a reputable studio and then mastered by a reputable mastering engineer. Subsequently all artwork will be created, then the final product will be manufactured into CD's, vinyl (If funding exceeds $3500) as well as digital downloads will be made available. You can get a copy of the album before any official release date if you pledge! I know times are tough, that’s why I can't do it without you! Because of you, this music will hopefully get into the hands and fill the ears of many who otherwise would never hear it! And for that I thank you! Seriously!
