Our debut album! Using music to declare the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our generation who desperately needs to hear it.
Threshold is a passionate group of born again believers in Winston Salem, NC, who have had our broken lives restored through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a result, we want to see our generation set free from the bondage of this life. We are passionate about reaching our generation and hope that the music that has been so important to us can be used in the lives of others. The strength and vitality that is found in these songs speaks of a foundational truth that our generation has not heard. We are under a church covering but it is a very small church and we do not have our own studio or fundraising source through the church. So we are turning to you, hoping to raise the funds through Kickstarter for the recording, mixing, and mastering of an album beginning in October with completion in November. Anything you can give will be extremely helpful, we are so excited about this opportunity and what the Lord is going to do and we hope that you are too! And remember, we only receive the funding if we successfully hit our goal!
Here are a few samples of what our music sounds like! They are rough recordings that we made in our "living room studio" so don't expect much but hey, that's why we need your support anyway! Hopefully this will give you a taste of what the music is like. If the player below doesn't work, you can also visit http://www.reverbnation.com/thresholdmusicofficial

So where are your donations actually going and why do we need your help? Well, in order to complete our album, you'll be helping to cover the costs for us to spend several weeks at Roland Professional Sound recording studio here in Winston Salem. Then we'll need to pay the guys over there to mix and master the songs to make everything sound professional. Then we will need to get the completed album duplicated into hard copy CDs, placed in awesome Digipak CD cases, and sent out to all of you that help fund the project! And as always, we also have taxes and fees that are involved in a successful project.
As you already know, our Kickstarter campaign began on August 28th, 2012. We've spent the last several months practicing and preparing, playing together to get the songs arranged correctly and setting the foundation for being able to walk into the studio and record with no delay after this Kickstarter project is completed. Once the project finishes on October 12th we'll have less than two weeks of final preparations and then start recording on October 26th! We then plan to have the album completed in mid-November, when we'll start to send out copies to all of you who have helped to support us!
If you would like more information about us or about this project or if you have any questions for us, please do not hesitate to send us a message through Kickstarter or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be updating as often as possible about our progress both here and at twitter.com/ThresholdMusic so feel free to keep up with us there! Thanks again for visiting and donating, we pray the Lord blesses you!
