About

Be part of launching the next big Rock band to come out of the UK!

Symphonika are a UK based symphonic rock band. We are writing everything from all out rock songs to hauntingly beautiful ballads. We want not only to raise our profile and create a bigger fan base, but also to utilise Kickstarter to fund our next project. You can help us make a difference!

This is your chance to be involved in the production, launch and explosion of a 12 track album produced by legendary producer Mack, which could go down in history as an all time classic.

Producer Mack:

We have the amazing opportunity to work with legendary producer Reinhold Mack.  Producer/Engineer to ELO, Queen, Black Sabbath, Billy Squier, Rory Gallagher, Rolling Stones and many more...creating hugely successful music.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and we’re hoping to make it count. We just need the funding for studio time, marketing and promotion. You can be a part of that!  We currently don’t have the backing of a record label, so everything we’ve done so far has been self funded...  Mack believes in our music and has massive faith in Symphonika.  He has already produced 2 singles for us on the strength of his beliefs...

Here is single No.2 "Controversy"

Why are we Unique?

Symphonika are unique.  We are not only 4 strong songwriters in one band, but also all multi-instrumentalists and all Vocalists.  We create multipart harmonies and layers of sound, Quite rare and unique in the time of the reality TV show.  We are all highly trained musicians, who are here to last.  We WON'T be here today and gone tomorrow, as is the case in recent years...  We have the passion and drive to make great music, and we know where we've come from and where we're going!  We know it's about YOU, the fans!

So we’re offering you the pledgers opportunities to have an experience with the band. Become an addition to the creative processes and even appear in music videos... Symphonika is a band by the people for the people! Lets rock a revolution!

Risks and challenges

As with every music album, there are risks involved, but we have taken every effort to ensure that we have minimal risks. We have a great and experienced production team, A legendary Rock producer with staff to complete the work to the highest standard. Mack also has industry contacts. The rights to the music belong solely to the band with production credits to Mack. So we are able to release the album without the barriers of a record label blocking final release.

The only perceivable risks are:

-Production delays
-Illness/injury

The songs are written (new ones being written all the time!), we have the support of a legendary producer, we lack one thing...the backing to make it happen! That's where you come in!

We will ensure that all rewards are delivered promptly on completion of the work.
