We're recording our first full length album this fall. We need a little help from our friends to make that happen!
I've been writing and performing my own songs for years, but I've never recorded a full length album. I've been able to record two small EPs for free. Now I want to create something more complete and more substantial. But in order to do that, I need some support from you. By funding my project, you're giving me the opportunity to fulfill a personal goal and to share my music with you and others. I'm grateful for any level of support you can give me!
- Liz Ciavolino, singer-songwriter, harp & piano
- Dane Galloway, guitar & bass
- Mary Ferrillo, viola
- Joel Sephy, accordion
- Alex Nowak, bass
I will be recording at Lucumi Studios in D.C. with producer Max Lorenzen. I worked with Max and Lucumi Studios last year when I recorded the EP All My Charm and Grace and I'm excited to continue working with them.
- August: Promoting the kickstarter and album. We'll be performing in Baltimore, New York, DC, and Philly in the next month. (Details here: www.facebook.com/lizandthelostboys/events)
- September-January: Arranging and Recording
- February-March: Mixing and Mastering
- April: Duplication. If you fund this project, you'll receive your copy of the album in April, pre-release.
- May: Official Release show and party in Philly! Stay posted for details. As a funder, you're especially invited to come celebrate with us!
The cost of recording is $3,000. I will need another $500-$750 for mastering and duplication. Additionally, I will be paying $300 for Kris Mukai to create the artwork for the album. The ideal budget is $4,000.
$3,000 will get me started, but it will not cover the entire cost. I expect to fund part of this myself but the more we can raise here the easier it will be!
Whale doodles are done in watercolor for you especially. T-shirts are navy blue with glow-in-the-dark ink. Songs will be recorded and sent to you via e-mail.
Note on shipping: If you live in the Philadelphia area, I can give you non-album rewards at the time you fund us. Anything that needs to be mailed will be shipped to you with the album in April.
