We all just want to live a life worth writing down; crash your father-in-laws car into his pool or hop a train to nowhere in hopes that it will take you somewhere. Do you want to swim the English Channel, or jump out of a plane? Would it take just a moment or a lifetime? Maybe you have to pile in a van, go across the country playing shows every night. Would you fight for something or be the one who resolves it? Some say it takes a thousand heart breaks, others say it only takes one true love. People might say that your life can be broken down into small, key events, others might say your life was rollercoaster. It doesn't mater what they say... Be the person you want to be. Be a lover, be a fighter, be a doctor, or be a rocker. At the end of the day, all that matters is that you lived a life worth writing down.  

It’s been a long road. I’ve written over 200 songs, played more shows than I can remember and broken more guitar strings than I can afford. Since we started recording these songs, we've all lost family and friends, made new friends that have become family, moved countless times, and made some music. In the two and a half years that we have been together, we have accomplished a lot, especially considering our average age being 18. We've played Austin City Limits Music Festival, SXSW, New York, LA, and recorded in over 10 studios. We are proud of our accomplishments, but we want to do more and grow.

With the help of my band, I have recorded an awesome 6 song EP. We are proud of this EP, and ready to release it into the wild. To have this EP reach as many ears as possible we will need to hire a publicity and radio team, as well as tour around its release. Your contribution will go directly towards helping us build this promotional team and acquire the resources to properly release this set of songs into the world. Any and all support is greatly appreciated and will make more of an impact than you will ever know. I am thankful that I’ve been able to do the thing I love the most and to do it with some of the my best friends. Your support will allow us to continue to pursue our dream of living a life worth writing down. 

 

Risks and challenges

The challenge that weighs most heavy on our minds is how are we going to break through, push our music above the noise, and become a successful and widely known band. The first step is writing music that is truly unique and impactful. At the root of every musician's success is a great song. We wholeheartedly believe in the music we are creating and we hope that it connects with a widespread audience.

Getting that music to a widespread audience is a different challenge in itself. How does one elevate above the millions of other bands in this world? To do this, we have built a team around us that advises and promotes our music. With the hopeful success of this Kickstarter campaign, we will be able to expand our team and spread our music publicity and touring.

The risks involved vary, but most notably, failure, in our eyes, would mean that the only dream we have ever had will not come true. With that, we will do everything in our power to make this dream a reality. Combined with the support of our team and unrelenting hard work, we feel that we will be able to overcome any challenge that is thrown our way.
