We Are / She Is (WASI) will need YOUR help to finish their 2nd EP this Fall.
First off, we would like to thank everyone that has helped us along our WASI venture.
We have pushed our first EP, Young and Pretty Clean, as hard and far as we could... and now it's time to get back into the studio and independently release our second EP! This new EP will feature 5 brand new songs that will showcase our sound and energy, with influences from The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Ting Tings and Matt and Kim.
We Are / She Is formed in the summer of 2010 after several previous projects together. Starting from scratch, we spent the first few months recording our EP and planning out the direction we wanted to take this project in. Through long hours of rehearsals, not-so-great shows, and selling CDs on the streets to bystanders for self-promotion, we developed the work ethic and sound that we embrace now.
Since our formation, we have had the honor to have our songs Barlights and Puzzles featured on Showtime's The Real L Word. We've shared stories with thousands of people who have supported us along the way, from the LGBT Pride Festivals (San Francisco, Long Beach, Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, Riverside, Palm Springs and Phoenix) to the huddled picnic groups at Hollywood Bowl. We've opened sold-out shows for artists such as The Naked and Famous, Uh Huh Her and Foxy Shazam, and was part of the OC Music Awards 2012 Best Live Band Series. One of our most memorable experiences was when we filmed a no-budget music video for Puzzles as we invaded Venice Beach to feed and hang out with the homeless.
Now this is definitely just the beginning. We classify ourselves along the lines of alternative-dance-punk, as we love to put a show on that will get your energy surging and lips moving with us. We continue to stay independent with these do-it-yourself tactics so we can hold onto to our artistic and business freedom.
$2,500 in 30 days
Kickstarter is all or nothing; with your help, we can definitely reach our goal! Our $2,500 goal is a partial amount of what will cover recording, mixing, mastering, artwork, reproduction and promotion. Even if times are tough for the moment and you can’t exactly donate, sharing with all of your friends via Facebook, Twitter or Word-of-Mouth would be just as forever helpful. But if you’re down and ready to back this project, we have a number of incentives that we would love to give back to show our gratitude!
Our new EP will be titled "NAMES" - and the CD will be designed with the names that have backed this Kickstarter. “Names” will be about our whole network of people who can support the independence of this project... it’s about the togetherness, collaboration and a community of individuals that can help make things happen. We also have other incentives, but we would love your input as well if there is anything you wish to see added! We want to thank you all again for your support.
WE ARE SO INCREDIBLY STOKED TO RELEASE OUR NEW MATERIAL AND GET THIS BALL ROLLIN. LETSDOIT.
Jessie and Merilou
