About this project
SUPPORT one band's effort to balance parenting with a career in the arts.
We’re The Savage Hearts, a rising bluegrass-meets-honky tonk band on Colorado's musically innovative Front Range. Featuring string pedagogue Annie Savage along with songwriter/educator Kevin Slick, Kit Simon, Bianca Bentz and twin fiddle guests ranging from the fiddle pros to the Young Pickers kids' ensemble we direct, we specialize in high energy performances and providing educational outreach. We invite professionals and our own children and students alike to join in the high energy Route 66 flavored honky tonk and bluegrass shows … AND WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Our upcoming album, The Twin Fiddle Album, will feature our own children and students right along with guest fiddlers from the mountains of the west to the studios of Nashville. Featured guests will include the award-winning Becky Buller, Greg Blake, Jeff Scroggins, Ellie Hakanson and more! Twin fiddles have long been a hallmark of bluegrass and swing music and they are a perfect platform for making great music TOGETHER. We call this brand of fiddle music "twiddling!". The album will feature a mix of sangin' songs and standard, fiddle tunes- some traditional, some a little Latin flavored and some just straight up honky tonk. All delivered with the heart.
What makes this album special? This album feature kids and pros in the same room- playing it forward- together! All against a backdrop of your favorite spicy southwestern bluegrass band, The Savage Hearts! Viva!
Your support will encourage young players, and will assist with studio, production, duplication and promotion costs … and will help us to share our mission of music on the road!
Risks and challenges
As a group, The Savage Hearts is a new band, however, band members have recorded, performed and produced over 30 CDs! Our collective expertise will cut down on many of the usual "unforeseen" costs and bumps in the road, like time management in the studio, photography, design time/costs, etc. We are working with a great publicity firm (Laughing Penguin Publicity & Consulting) out of Nashville and are working with them on a timeline to ensure an effective release campaign strategy. We have given ourselves a bit more time than we need and feel confident about the studio and production timeline! YOUR RISK IS NOTHING! Your support garners some sweet gifts for you, and the satisfaction of knowing that you’re a part of a lasting musical legacy! THANK YOU for your consideration!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
