Sight vs. Sound has returned with a fresh new sound and line-up and is ready to start making new music. Help our dream become a reality
Sight vs. Sound was started in 2008 in Seattle, WA by me, Ryan Tapert, and some of my friends. After two EP's, a couple West Coast tours and lots of local shows, I felt like this just wasn't the right time, with the right people and the right music for the dream I had envisioned when I was a teenager. I decided to leave the band and took the Sight vs. Sound brand with me. The rest of the band members changed the band name to Mayweather and we continue to be close friends and they are still active in the Seattle music scene today.
Four years down the road, I relocated to Eugene, OR on a drum scholoarship for college. This past summer I married my best friend Signe Tapert and we now both live in Eugene. My passion to create original music that influences a generation and has an impact on my community was only fueled further by my wife's passion for the same thing. After thinking, dreaming and many conversations about what it would look like, we decided to form a band. But instead of forming a new band, we decided that Sight vs. Sound was not done saying what it needs to say, so we resurrected the name and the original mission: In a world and culture where most artists either focus on their image or their sound, we want to meet in the middle of both. To write honest songs that meet people where they are at and to give them a positive ray of light in this dark, depressive and hurting world.
Together we convinced some of our closest friends and most talented musicians we have ever had the pleasure of playing music with to join the project. The current lineup is now: Signe Tapert and Isaac Frank on co-lead vocals, Ryan Tapert on drums, Devin Horn on keys and Scott Thompson on guitar. We are currently in the midst of writing new material that will be our latest release, due out in April of 2013. We cannot wait to share this music with you, but in order to accomplish this we need your help. We are all poor college students, and newlyweds. Combine that with the fact that we are musicians and we have a real financial deficit to get this album in the hands of as many people as possible. Here is where you all come in. By making a donation of anything from $5 and up, not only will you first handedly be helping this album come to life, but you will be rewarded with merchandise from the band! What's better then that? New music and merch! We all look forward to partnering with you all on this new journey. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Ryan, Signe, Isaac, Devin and Scott
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Every projects has risks involved. We have a tentative time table as to when this album with be completed, but also we just need everyone to keep in mind that we are full time college students who also have jobs, so everything we do for this band is in our spare time. We would love one day for this band to be our full time jobs, and this is the first step in that direction. We will keep you all up to date with the progress as we move along!
