Pretty Little Demons - EP & Music Video!
PLD is what happens when two seasoned pros form a band together. Lydia Night began writing songs at 6, formed her first band at 7, is a member of the Dead Man's Bones' Choir(Ryan Gosling & Zach Shields' band) & has been performing solo the past several years.
Marlhy Murphy began drumming at 6 and was playing with the advanced kids at School of Rock Dallas by 7. Marlhy has been featured in Tom Tom Magazine and her bands have opened for Polyphonic Spree and Sarah Jaffe. She is also a cast member of the AOL/Emmy award winning TV show, Kids React.
Oh and btw, Lydia is 11 and Marlhy just turned 10.
Ethan Allen - Producer
Pretty Little Demons will be recording their first EP of original music this August at Hicksville Trailer Palace in Joshua Tree with producer Ethan Allen who has just finished producing Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Ethan has also engineered or produced The Cult, Donita Sparks, Tricky, Gram Rabbit and tons more.
Morgan Higby Night - Writer/Director
Lydia's dad will be directing the music video. He wrote/directed/produced the feature film Matters of Consequence and has written/directed several music videos including Androgynous by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and the Webby Award winning video Stick Magnetic Ribbons on Your SUV by The Asylum Street Spankers.
He will also be directing the "Making of Video" and made the kickstarter video above. http://devilsnight.com
Elizabeth McGrath - Album Cover
World famous artist Liz McGrath has agreed to do the album cover and we couldn't be more excited! http://elizabethmcgrath.com Don't worry... It won't be too creepy ;)
Kristin Burns - Photos
Rock & Roll photographer to the stars will be shooting photos of the girls during the process of recording and for their EP art work. She has toured with and shot Smashing Pumpkins, Duran Duran, Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger, Brian Wilson, Rob Zombie, Jessica Simpson and tons more...
Hicksville Trailer Palace - Recording Studio
Hicksville Trailer Palace in Joshua Tree has generously donated the studio & lodging free of charge. http://hicksville.com
This is a very small amount of money for all the things we would love to do together as a band. Although lots of amazing people are donating their time and energy or giving us huge discounts because we're cute, we still need money for all sorts of things to make this happen.
For starters, we'd like to give Ethan some money to produce the record even though he's charging us a fraction of what he normally makes. We also need to mix, master and print the CDs.
We'd love to have a real life website with a logo and info about upcoming shows!
Even though Lydia's dad can direct and edit for free, Video shoots still cost money to rent equipment, pay for a location, get insurance & pay a little bit to all the creative people that make a shoot like this happen. Lydia came up with the idea for the video taking place at a school talent show and it's going to be a fun one! (hopefully if we get the money:)
If we make more than our goal, It means a better video, maybe an extra recording day but if we get enough money, we could make a whole record instead of an EP! Lydia and Marlhy have been working hard all summer writing songs and playing together so they definitely have the material for it. They've also spent a good amount of time jumping on the trampoline as you'll see soon on their facebook.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING US WITH OUR DREAMS!!! -L&M
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
