The Geese are a songwriting collective getting ready to make their first full length album. The Geese are west coast danger folk.
The Geese are raising funds for their first full-length album, planning to record in March in Vancouver, BC. We need help to purchase some remaining studio items as well as to rent a space to record the album. We will be recording with our newly acquired, somewhat portable, studio. The money will go toward helping us rent a good location to record near our places of work in Vancouver.
We have been together since 2008. We got our start in New Brunswick, Canada in a small town--St. Stephen--and have since moved to Vancouver, BC, on the other side of the country. We toured down the east coast (New York, Philadelphia, Boston) as well as through the Canadian Maritimes when we lived in New Brunswick. Since moving to Vancouver, we've toured western Canada and the midwest. We put out our first EP, called "Small Boat," in New Brunswick and in Vancouver we have put out a single and a live album. We've been hoping to put together a full-length album for some time and now the timing feels right.

One of our members, Zach, is an experienced studio engineer, so the band as a unit has the skills to produce, engineer and mix the project. We're hoping to rent a cabin, house or barn somewhere within a hour of Vancouver to record. We believe that the physical space has an effect on the sound of the record and we want that relationship to be a positive one. After that is accomplished (with your help!), we'll start raising money for the manufacturing and distribution.
Thanks to Tyler Wilson and Brie Smith for their help videoing and interviewing, respectively.
The Geese are Dave Warne (vocals, guitar, mandolin, songwriter, bass, drums), Zoe Fitch (vocals, guitar, mandolin, songwriter), Joel Gorrie (vocals, cello, guitar, songwriter), Zachari Smith (vocals, guitar, mandolin, drums, dobro, songwriter) and Joel Mason (vocals, guitar, bass, songwriter, drums). Unfortunately, Joel Mason was unable to make it out for the video filming time, but he is a wonderful and talented individual who adds great flare to The Geese.
Thanks for helping The Geese make their first full-length album!
