ThankyouThankyouThankyou & More to Come
Dear friends, family, fans, and supporters,
We'd like to thank each and every one of you once again for the amazing show of support through Kickstarter. We didn't know quite what to expect when we launched this whole project, but it is humbling and inspiring to know that you all believe in our music as much as we do. Special thanks to everyone who was able to make it to our show this past weekend in NYC, but for those who weren't there, we guarantee many more great things to come.
As promised, we'll be keeping you updated via Kickstarter as the album progresses. For those of you who have never gone through the process of writing, recording, distributing, and supporting an independent album- here's your chance to see how it all goes does firsthand. Right now, we're putting the finishing touches on some of our older tunes, as well as working on some brand new ones that we think will really open some ears and turn some heads (think Radiohead meets John Hartford meets Zappa). We're aiming to get in to the studio in late winter/early spring (it's looking like we'll be recording in a barn in rural Maine; more on that to come in future posts...). And for those who pledged at the >$300 level, keep an eye out for your personalized ditty that we'll post on our website.
In the meantime, feel free to send us any suggestions as far as album art, layout, album name, etc... You guys are all an integral part of this project, so we'd love to have your suggestions and artistic and creative input. We've got a pretty clean slate right now as far that stuff goes, but we're sure as the music comes together all those other elements will fall into place with it. You can send any bright ideas directly to email@example.com.
Thanks again, and happy holidays to you and yours.
