Help Sun of Sound make it to Minneapolis, MN to record our forthcoming EP.
This Kickstarter campaign is a means for you to assist in funding the production of our new EP. We, Sun of Sound, are about to embark on a journey to Minneapolis, MN to record with Joe Mabbott, one of our favorite producers and engineers. This lovely man has worked on a whole host of records that have inspired us and significantly influenced our writing (Atmosphere, The Roots, POS, Brother Ali, etc.) We’ve got a bunch of new tunes that we are itching to record. We are particularly proud of this set of songs; they are much more true to the musical vision that the five of us have always had and what we have been trying to do since the inception of this project. We know that Joe is the perfect person to assist in the manifestation of these ideas. The fundraising campaign won’t come close to completely financing the costs associated with such a trip, but the financial burden of recording, production, and travel expenses would be partially mitigated should you donate to the cause. We would be eternally indebted to you for having done so! And, of course, your contributions won’t go unrewarded- the money you donate is equivalent to pre-ordering the new record and might mean considerably more than that depending on how generous you are inclined to be. Check out the list of rewards for specifics!
Remember that if we don’t reach our intended goal within the 30-day time
frame that we get nothing at all! If you could find it in your hearts to help
out, we would greatly appreciate it.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The primary risks associated with donating to this project concern the timeline with which rewards will be met and distributed. We can't possibly account for unforseen production delays, acts of god, or potential future setbacks that may or may not occur. What we can do, however, is to guarantee that we will follow through on any commitments we make no matter what (if anything) potentially goes awry.
We have provided an estimate as to when prizes will be delivered and we will be sure to be faithful to that timeline. We have been working very hard on the music over the past year and we are completely ready to record as soon as we get to Minneapolis. As we move forward through the process we will be sure to provide frequent updates concerning the nature of our progress. All money received will go directly towards the funding of this record. We absolutely guarantee receipt of any rewards you may be entitled to as a result of your donation.
