We're already so proud of the songs we have written and excited to be working on this project together. With your support, we can produce the kind of album that will take The Highway Poets to the next level.
We began this musical journey with only one rule: no rules. We blend together all the genres that inspire us and the result is a powerhouse 7-piece band that delivers pure, un-generic, pocket-fueled badassery that we call NEW RETRO SOUL.
This album is going to be sexy and sophisticated one moment then gritty and greasy the next. An album with heart-felt lyrics that have a point of view and will pique the ears of the modern listener while at the same time paying homage to the greats that came before us and have given us so much inspiration.
By putting this project into the hands of professionals we'll create a finished product that you will love and we will forever be proud of. Studio engineers, producers and sonic art enthusiasts have the skills, experience and equipment we need to capture the sounds and performances we have been working for.
As a much appreciated donor, you will be a part of a historical collaboration with The Highway Poets, seven of the finest and fastest rising Writers, Singers and Musicians in the San Francisco North Bay Area.

Risks and challenges
When making an album there is always the risk of getting too involved with perfection. While we strive to create songs that are the very best version we can produce, we also want our songs to sound human and to be an experience that is as fun on the album as it is live. So instead of overdubbing all the tracks separately we intend to spend our time in the studio mustering up our magic as a group and hitting those special takes that you will want to listen to over and over again. We want you to enjoy our music for years to come.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
