Awesome Opossum is nearly complete, and we need your help to finish the rest!
The Sanderlings are nearing completion of their latest album "Awesome Opossum." Recording sessions for this collection of songs began in spring of 2009. In fall of 2010 Josh Evans (Lead Guitarist, 1/2 Lead Vocalist) accepted a teaching position in Bend, Oregon. This move made it impossible to continue to play live shows (our primary source of income), which resulted in finances being cut off. Thankfully, we had built up some credit with the studio from the money we made prior to Josh moving, however, we are now at the end of that supply. That is where you hopefully come in.
We feel that this album has a great potential and much effort and hard work already been poured into this project. A couple of the songs are complete and have received positive reviews from several industry professionals including legendary music producer Stuart Epps. We really want this record to see the light of day and to properly release it.
Here is where we stand...
1. The album will have contain 14-15 songs
2. 4 songs are complete. This leaves 10-11 that need varying degrees of work. Some only need mastering while others have a little ways to go. We anticipate about $1250 to finish up this process
3. We want to release this record on two mediums; Digital and Vinyl. To release this digital we are looking at about $250 to get it on iTunes and various other sites. To produce 300 vinyl's it is going to cost about $2500. We really believe that this record will sound the best on Vinyl and will be most collectable as well. Art work will also need to be completed which will cost about $250. That leaves $750 to cover any T-Shirts, unexpected costs and fees that we have to pay to kickstarter and amazon.
4. If we are able to get appropriate funding by the time this campaign is over we expect a release date of July 2012.
We thank you for any and all support you can give us. Since we are not able to play live shows anymore, we have no way to make the money necessary to complete this project as group. Your help will go a very long way. Please pass this along to anyone who may be interested in helping us out.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
