Let the Recording begin!!!
Hello all! I wanted to give you all an update as to whats been happening since the my project has been successfully funded. I've been back an forth to the studio laying out a plan of attack, and will start recording early June. I'm also building a website that will hopefully launch late June, early July as well. I'm shopping around for the best price for merchandise design and production... so if anyone has any ideas I'm all for them!
PLEASE - anyone that has donated $25 or more and has asked for their reward, please send me a postal address so that I can get you your merchandise. Also, if you've donated the propper amount that warrants apparell, please send me your shirt size. I will keep you posted as to what will be available as far as styles.
Thanks so much to everyone for all your help! I'm really excited and can't wait for it's release later this year!
