We have emerged from the blur of making twin baby girls, & now we are ready to make some music.  

We are independent artists, and we like the freedom it affords us.  We don't have a record label to finance our album.  You are our record label.  Crowd-sourcing a record means you become the foundation for our musical existence.  You have the opportunity to make this record a reality & to support us in our endeavor to be full-time musicians and parents.

THE MUSIC
Songs like this, but bigger, higher quality, & fully fleshed-out.

Other songs include "The Comforter Has Come," "Fire & Brimstone," "The Marriage," "The Taxidermist," "The Hostage," "The Teacher," & other songs that follow the theme of guilt & redemption.

 THE GOAL

We have 30 days to fully fund this record.  If we don't reach $7500, the whole thing gets called off, & we don't get a dime.  If we do reach $7500, we get a multitude of dimes and proceed with the project.

We are asking for your support in two ways:
1) Financial: making a record costs money.  We have no money.  That's where you guys come in.
2) The whisper campaign: forward anyone & everyone to our Kickstarter page, websitefacebook, or twitter.  Share videos of us.  The bigger the crowd, the better the crowd-sourcing.

THE MAGIC NUMBER: $7500

Broken down, this covers:

Recording studio time

Producer's Fee

Extra musicians (drums, pianos, cellos, violins, the works)

Mixing

Mastering

Graphic Design / Album Artwork / Photography

CD Duplication

Any amount received over $7500 goes towards CD release show preparations and promotional materials.

We are so excited about this album and more than grateful that you would consider being a part of it!  Thank you for your support, your encouragement, and your generosity.  You are amazing!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges for this project are fairly limited. We have planned as much as possible for this to go smoothly, but we imagine that this project involves more contingencies than you can ever anticipate ahead of time; that's what makes life interesting. Short of risking our lives in Atlanta traffic on our way to the studio, there's not a problem $7500 can't tackle.
