Kedder Avant is recording their first album and we need your help to release it!

Support Michigan Indie Rock!

Kedder Avant is a 5 piece indie rock band out of Southeast Michigan with members in Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor and Metro Detroit areas.

Our latest description is : “The Beatles and The Pixies had a lovechild who punched Elvis Costello in the face… that lovechild is Kedder Avant”

We are:
David A Grammer II – Vocals and Guitar
Aaron Barbee – Bass and Vocals
Greg Smith – Guitar
Tony Archer – Drums
James Morris - Percussion

Kedder Avant has been playing as a band since the start of 2010 and started recording our debut album in February of 2011 at Big Sky Recording in Ann Arbor. Hours of recording and thousands of dollars later we are finally mixing our album and we need your help to get us the rest of the way.

We are asking for $1,000 to help us accomplish our goal of an album release in July of 2012. The $1,000 will help to cover mixing our remaining tracks, mastering our album, fees to our distribution company for the release, duplicating CDs, ordering merchandise, marketing costs, and hopefully helping us recoup some of the cost of recording, which has exceeded far more than the $1,000 we're trying to gather here. Your pledge of support will go a long way in helping us fulfill our dream of releasing and distributing an album for everyone to have an opportunity to hear.

We are giving away a ton of stuff from stickers to guitars, to copies of the album, original short stories, and even going so far as shaving words into [one of] our heads… Seriously, we just want to make people happy. If that involves shaving things into heads, more power to kickstarters.

A big THANK YOU from all of us in the band and please tell your friends. We appreciate everything!

-David A. Grammer II
