We are an indie folk-rock band making the most of life, and we need your inspiration. Pre-order our new EP and help others at the same time.
UPDATE 09.25.09: Check the 'Updates' tab above for more sound clips from the new songs...
UPDATE 09.02.09: Because we want to be part of something bigger than ourselves, and because we intend to see lives changed for the better, we will be giving a portion of all CD and t-shirt sales to two organizations working for good in the world: She Dances and Living Hope. We sincerely thank you for considering giving to our collective cause...
Hello. My name is Zack. I'm in a band called The Walla Recovery. We're making our first record, an EP entitled 'With Trembling...'
It's about the feeling you might get when standing before a Great Lion. Will he show you his ferocity? Or his mercy? In that moment, who will save you, if not he himself?
We want as many people as possible to hear these new songs. We're almost finished recording, and we know exactly what to do next: (1) manufacture CDs, and (2) take a small tour.
We have one obstacle: money. We did the math... It's going to take $4000 to make our plans a reality. That's why we're partnering with Kickstarter to offer pre-orders and other first-edition goods that may not be available again.
Our listeners have been very supportive in the past, so we know it can happen with your help. If you chip in, we'll make sure you're rewarded! Donate any amount ($1 - $1500 or more), and you'll receive a thank-you gift in return:
Privileged recording updates, the EP (digital download or physical CD), a Lion t-shirt, exclusive acoustic tracks, band sessions & song stories, ringtones, and handwritten lyrics. Also: a chance to give us your opinion on a never-before-heard song, or have us play a concert in your living room. Check the right-hand side of our Kickstarter page for the details. →
There is a catch: if the entire $4000 isn't raised in 40 days, you won't receive a gift. Neither will we. (Your card won't be charged.)
So, make your pre-order/donation/pledge today, tell your friends, and let's see what happens! We're looking forward to you hearing our new recording.
