A passionate Pop/Soul/Rock and Roll band's first professional studio release. A zesty 5 song EP that will make you cheer!
The Goal for this EP project is pretty simple: to create a 5-song EP that will pave the way for the album. We LOVE music- groovy excellent, soulful, heart-felt music that makes your spirit dance! Music is a powerful, heart-provoking vessel that carries the ideas and attitudes of its creators.
Our idea and attitude is that this world isn't the way it was intended to be because of all of our pride and selfishness, but that there is hope in a new way of thinking, interacting and existing through Love. This love is action-based, selfless, and is not a spectator sport. It is personified in the Jesus of the Bible, but not necessarily in all who call themselves, "Christian."
Our hope in this EP is that our listeners would be challenged to not accept things as they are, encouraged to take action, and would rediscover their gifts and purpose for the improving of the world around us. This is our first professionally produced EP and will be released in late August. It will be followed by other recordings- one full-length scheduled for release this late fall! Check out past recordings on our website. (Here is one of the two Singles we released in April of this year:)
We already have many of the tracks recorded at the studio, but are looking ominously at the other costs: in production, post-production, mastering, duplication, packaging and the initial press and distribution. The funds will go to pay for these things and the extra studio time that will be necessary to complete the recording. It is impossible for independent musicians to get forward momentum these days without the faithful support of fans, so we thank you very much for being on the team! We also look forward to enjoying with you the excellent perks that come with your investment!
The group's goal is to get a big enough backing to be able to produce music and perform full-time. Right now we have many of the members still working the side job to keep the boat afloat. We are ambitious folks. We intend to continue making music because that is a part of who we are. We know it is only a matter of time and persistence until we get our 'break.' Again- thank you in advance for reviewing our project, and for any help that you give!
