We have already recorded, mixed and mastered our debut album, and we are so pumped to release it!

We have some payments to make for the work that's already been done, as well as some upcoming costs.  The funds raised in this campaign are going towards the costs of:

  • studio time
  • recording engineer
  • mixing
  • mastering
  • CD pressing & packaging
  • vinyl pressing & packaging
  • original artwork by Ricky Schaede & Gregg Coffey
  • T-shirt design & creation into real life! (for your wearing pleasure)

We appreciate your help SO MUCH, and can't wait for you to hear this album that we've put our hearts and souls into!

Thanks again!
ZUFFALO

P.S.  For those of you interested, the 9 original tracks on the album include:

Any Given Speed
Ocean Blue
Keep Groovin Down
Makin Good Time
I See My Future
Saskatchewan
Loose Cannon
Lately
You Didn't Tell Me

Risks and challenges

Minimal risks for backers! Since we have already done the bulk of the work on this project, the only risk is that we may have put ourselves in too much debt! But we are prepared to absorb this if need be, should our campaign not reach the success we are hoping for. Of course, in order to stay afloat in the music business these days, it will benefit us greatly if we can have success in this campaign and not have to put ourselves further behind in the game. Also, we likely will not be able to front the costs for pressing vinyl unless we can receive enough pre-orders to cover this big cost. We need your help! :)
