Undercover Apple is recording their debut EP "Across the Ocean" which spans from California to the UK and is looking for your support.
Undercover Apple is the musical project between Harry Meas and Emie Jenkins.
We are currently in the process of recording "Across the Ocean" our debut EP. The reason it's called Across the Ocean is quite simple: We have never met in person. Please refer to diagram below.
[Harry (California, USA)<----- Atlantic Ocean ------> Emie (Buckinghamshire, England)]
Stumbling upon each other's SoundCloud page, our love for playing music and song writing in combination with the internet somehow intertwined our paths and now we do what we love most together.Here is our musical process:
- Step 1 - Skype together
- Step 2 - Record music/singing
- Step 3 - E-mail recordings
- Step 4 - High-five computer monitor in next Skype session
- Step 5 - Replaced broken computer monitor
Supporting our project with your awesome pledges will help us with the costs of mixing, mastering, physical production, digital distribution, and minor equipment upgrades (I will be sending my 2 year old computer to Emie overseas since she is using a 7 year old laptop to record with which prevents her for reaching her record potential).
Your support will help us realize that maybe this deep blue thing called the ocean isn't so big after all and will help spread music across the the globe and internet. Thank you!
P.S. In the chance that we exceed our $2,000 goal, addition funds will be used to record/mix/master acoustic versions onto the EP and help fund more equipment upgrades.

I will now be offering the MIDI Keyboard I used to record the EP as a reward! Check out the rewards panel for details.
I was randomly searching for Ben Cooper (Radical Face) on soundcloud and I came across a cover of Homesick by Emie. Instantly fell in love with her voice and guitar playing.
I do most of the sequencing in ReNoise 2.8 with various VSTs. For capturing our vocals, I use WavePad while Emie uses ProTools.
Emie has been playing guitar for 9 years and singing for 5 years. I have been playing piano for 10 years, guitar for 5 years, and singing for 3 years.
