We are making our first full-length album and we need your help!

The Railsplitters are thrilled to make their first full length album!  It's been almost one year since the four of us got together for our first gig and we can't wait to get into the studio to take our band to the next level.  In order to do this though, we need YOUR help! Recording an album has many expenses.  Your donations will help pay for recording costs, CD manufacturing, producing, mixing, mastering, and many other things along the way.  

We are also very excited to involve YOU in our creative process.  From rewards like digital downloads to private concerts and everything in between, you can help us achieve our goal AND have a piece of the project to show for it!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We recognize that any creative endeavor carries risk with it. While fun, the recording process can also be painstaking, difficult, and time consuming. However, we are looking forward to working with a great recording engineer and producer whose work we respect and admire. We are also very motivated to see the project through and to do the work of touring and playing shows to get our music out there! Everyone in the band wants this project to succeed and wants the band to continue to grow and flourish. Thank you all in advance for helping us fulfill this dream. We can't wait to share it with you!

FAQ

  • Your donation is just a pledge until we meet our goal. The money won't be withdrawn from your bank account until and unless we reach $8500.

    Last updated:
  • If we make less than $8500, we don't get to keep any of it. If we make more than our goal, we will use your dollars for all the extra expenses that will no doubt creep up. Some examples are cover art, packaging, distribution, promotion, blah blah blah. When making a record there are always unforeseen expenses. It's just like any other business. So remember folks, every little bit helps! Thank you!
