Since the release of our first Album Spandex Effect, we have been very fortunate to have such wonderful and dedicated listeners all over the world! We've heard from fans in Tokyo, Paris, Sydney, South America, The US and of course across Canada. We are so excited to record a new album and release it to all of you!
In fact, we've already written new music, we've got all our harmonies, horn lines and grooves arranged and ready for the studio. Now we just need you! We need your help to fund the making of this album! There's many elements that go into creating a full length album. There are the rehearsals, the production, the studio time, the engineering, the mixing, the mastering, the graphics the manufacturing...just to name a few.
With the funds raised through this campaign, we will enter the studio prepared to record with the best equipment, with the the best producer and engineers in the best facilities. We will be able to press and distribute a brand new album that will be made possible by our fans, for our fans!
We are independent musicians. We can't do it without you. We need your help to create something we can be proud of to give back to our wonderful listeners- and trust us- this album will really represent our musical evolution since Spandex Effect! We can guarantee that when this album is finished, and you're listening to it on your headphones, in your car or on your stereo, you'll be dancing and you'll be smiling because you'll know that you helped make it happen!
We've got some awesome rewards that we're very excited to share! From exclusive behind the scenes footage, to T-shirts, to phone chats with us, to personalized videos and photo prints, there’s something for everyone. We've got limited edition signed photographs that we'll print and send to you by our favourite photographer David Charlec! See the selection of photos below! In those photos we are wearing dresses made by our favourite Toronto designer Tess Barbieri! She has graciously donated 3 of her dresses in the Spandettes styles as rewards as well!
We truly can’t do it without you! This funding will cover the last few thousand dollars of recording expenses and hopefully enough to help us pay our amazing band who deserve a little something for the countless hours they are putting into making the record of our dreams. If we surpass our goal of $7500 then all additional funds will go into pressing vinyl!!
To our Japanese fam: our album will be sold in Japan exclusively through our label P-Vine so pre-orders of songs and the full album will be available through them soon! In the mean time we’ve got alternative rewards exclusive to Japan at every level so you can get to know us better and prepare yourself for the record which will be available in Japan this summer!!
Risks and challenges
After our project is successfully funded, we face many challenges in order to complete it. Though as independent musicians we've faced constant challenges that we've always confronted with positivity and persistence. The thing that makes our group strong is our dedication to each other. This project is our passion and we’ve stuck together in this awesome team for many years.
The biggest challenge of this project is the level of quality we are aiming to achieve. We’re trying to make a major label level record, without a major label backing it! We are working hard to create an album of the highest standard. This will be a challenge, but one we are excited and motivated to rise to and we’re armed and ready to take it on.
Ideally we would have a whole office full of people to work on all the details of such a large project. Though our crew is small we are hard working and incredibly dedicated. For this new album we have expanded our team to include not only the three Spandettes; Alex, Maggie and Lizzy but the whole 10 piece band, our amazing new producer Justin Abedin, the best recording, mixing and mastering engineers in Toronto, a publicity guru, a stylist, a photographer and a graphic designer. We’ve also got the support of our artist collective, Brave New records, and some financial support from FACTOR who are generously helping us achieve our goals with this record.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
