The Sobriquets have a lot of great new music to offer, and we need your help to get it recorded! Donate today! Every little bit helps!
We’d like to first of all thank you for everything everyone has done to make this band what it is today. We couldn’t have accomplished what we have without the love and support of all of you, so before we introduce you to our next big project, we’d like you to know that we are beyond appreciative for everything you’ve given us.
We’ve been doing great things here in Philadelphia and beyond. This last year has had us playing more shows than ever before, and taking us to new audiences all over the East Coast. Many of you have supported us by buying a copy of our last EP, “The Sobriquets Are Out Of Style”, and we thank you for supporting a record that has meant such a great deal to us. We’re proud of “Out Of Style” and we continue to evolve, writing more material and becoming a tighter, stronger and more expressive group of musicians. So we are on a mission now to make the best set of recordings we possibly can. And while the desire and strength of musicianship is there, it takes more resources than we have at our disposal to make that happen. That’s where you come in.
Rather than go the traditional route, we’re asking for all of you to help us fund this next recording project. Hiring out a professional studio with a real producer is what we want to do, and it will help us make recordings the likes of which we’ve always dreamed about. This is the next big step of the journey, where we take all of our hard work, skill, our hearts, all of the miles and hours, everything we have- and put it on tape and release it alongside the artists and records that have inspired us all so much. Most importantly, we want to involve all of you in this process; we want to turn to you, our fans, friends and families, to be a part of this next great step in the story of The Sobriquets. Reaching our goal will be all the greater if we know you had a hand in making it possible.
You can help us by pledging right here on Kickstarter dot com. It’s easy, it’s private, and if you’ve ever ordered something from Amazon, then you’re already most of the way there.
Aside from the feelings of community and satisfaction that come along with supporting art, we’re willing to sweeten the deal by offering up what we do best: our music. Check out the pledge packages on the right side of the page, there is something for every budget, every pledge, no matter how big or small. And with each pledge, you get something, be it a CD, a t-shirt, a signed tour poster, a private concert, everyone gets something as a token of our immense gratitude.
Thanks to you all in advance for helping us do what we love doing. We know we can make this happen with your help.
