Who We Are
We are five musicians: Jayanthi, Wes, David, Scott, and Jimmy who play in over a dozen bands in Minneapolis. Over the last two years, we've come together as Gospel Machine to try something new. We call this music "garage gospel." It's music inspired by the old gospel music that we love, by the sounds of the 50's and 60's, and by what we hear and feel in our lives today. Songs that ache and throb, songs of heartache and love, songs that cry out for a better day, songs about being a part of the struggle.
What We're Doing
We are in the finishing stages of releasing our debut album, Your Holy Ghost. For this record, we have worked with some amazing people. We enlisted members of the Brass Messengers and Jon Davis to play horns on the record. We've also started working with Alex Hall (JD McPherson) on mixing the record. At the same time we'll be releasing a 7 song EP called Reunion Day EP. Those are set for release in June 2015. IF...
What We Need
The IF is all about money for the next step. We are asking for your help to raise the money to finish mixing, mastering, and physical production of CDs and vinyl. We've already thrown a lot of our blood, sweat, and treasure into this thing that we really believe in and we need help getting it done.
Thank you. Seriously. It means a lot to us.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is getting the funding in order. We have already started working with an amazing mixer, Alex Hall (JD McPherson), and have lined up a great mastering engineer, Greg Reierson. It's really just a matter of getting the money to move forward on the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
