We are very excited to be creating our first, full-length album!

About this project

The video above tells our story best! We are making our first, full-length album after more than 4 years of playing music together! 

"Red Letter Day" features songs written by Meg, Jeff and Tom and highlights a blend of catchy, Americana, folk, pop and rock songs. All of your favorite tunes we've played live are included, plus some new surprises! 

This album has been an ongoing collaboration from the moment Meg and Jeff started playing music together. We'd like to invite you to be a part this project that we're so proud of.
 

Risks and challenges

The process is time consuming and expensive, but worth it. As the video outlines, we spent a good amount of time and money laying down tracks over three long weekends this summer. We are now in the mixing process, which means we go through, edit the tracks, make sure volume levels and tones are all sounding as good and consistent as they can for all 13 songs.

Next comes mastering which is sort of like a read through of the final draft for any spelling errors or punctuation. Last, we need to duplicate, design and compile the actual CD, packaging.

Each of these steps presents different rewards and challenges, but we're thrilled to be collaborating with some great people to put this all together. We're about 50% of the way there financially, funded entirely out of our own pockets and savings account. With your help we can finish this process and complete the album!
