I'm Happiest When was created as an outlet by a few friends to create music in the Summer of 2011.  It's what makes us happy.  We hope you can find or are doing what makes you happy too. 

We're trying to raise money to record, press our album, and print t-shirts.  We could use your help to get everything off of the ground.

We're recording from January 16th-22nd and hope to have the record as well as t-shirts ready to sell in March or April of 2012.

We are treating this Kickstarter like a pre-order and have tried to make the prices for the rewards as reasonable as possible.  The prices for the EP and t-shirts will basically be the same as what they will cost when the album is finished.  If you plan on supporting us once we're finished recording, we ask that you do so now instead.

If we meet our goal, you get all of the rewards you purchased, and we get the money you pledged.  If we don't meet the goal, you get nothing, and we get paid nothing. 

If you've never heard our music, or it has been years, there's a demo at the end of our video above. 

Thanks,

Johnny Lucas, Travis Matheny, Ky Kenzler, and Skylr Carrow
