2016 was a great year for Flat 5. Southern Ontario is an appreciative, music-loving community; one that we feel blessed to be a part of. This Spring we would like to create our first album, and we are reaching out to our family, friends and the community to help support our goal. Our debut album has been a long time coming. We are carefully calculating how best to faithfully represent the high energy of our live shows in a polished recording. We have two goals in mind; to provide the people who support our music with an album they enjoy listening to; and to gain a high-quality release to book larger shows and reach a larger audience.
We plan to record, mix, and master the album using professionals from Southern Ontario. We expect it to cost us around $3,500. We aim to use this Kickstarter to sell the album before we pay for it. In exchange for a $10 donation, you will receive an original, full-length album; one that we hope to be quite proud of. If you have the means to provide even more support, we have come up with additional fun ways of expressing our appreciation. Whether you donate $1 or $100, we are extremely thankful for all of your support.
Risks and challenges
We realize that while recording and producing a quality album there are many risks involved. There are many obstacles to overcome along the way and we are aware of these challenges. There are equipment, sound, instrument and vehicle issues that can arise and delay us. However, we have prepared everything that we need to do to ensure this album is just the way we want it and we are ready for the challenge.
This will be our first album, and our first full-length release. We have prepared all of our songs, lyrics and arrangements for the album and we are ready to enter the studio as soon as we can. With the studio being so close to home and easily accessible we will have the time we need to get ourselves back on track if things end up delayed. We can assure you that this album will be a true display of our love for the music and just what Flat 5 is all about!
Like any musician, there are always challenges and risks every single time you step onto that stage. These are challenges that have made us the players we are today, and they won't get in our way. This album has been a long time coming and we plan to give our fans just what they've been asking for!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
