About

The following tracks have been uploaded (WIP tracks without any effects added...yet) since our original launch.  These are test tracks for us to get the format and technical process needed.  Leave feedback :) -- we can take it!

Morty’s Place

Our project is one of a kind. It will bring nostalgia to those listeners that enjoyed radio shows and gut-busting laughter to those just discovering comedy albums.

The story takes place in an old apartment building owned by Mr. Mortimer Smith. Morty, as other characters dub him, delivers any packages marked for his tenants. Volunteering himself for mayhem, Morty makes these deliveries to make sure his apartment is taken care of.

Morty will meet up with nearly a dozen zany characters, but to name a few:

- An adventure writer that gets his foot stuck in a toilet...

- A pair of mediocre opera singers looking for their "big break"...

- An animal trainer with gorilla problems...

- A "cat lady" that has more cats than you can count...

- A family of clock-smiths that lose track of time...

- Beatnik, blast-from-the-past band members practicing for the next gig... 

Needless to say, this will not be a boring album!

Why the Money? 

A simple answer---TIME...

Between us, we’ve had quite a few ideas over the years. But without any dough, it didn’t matter. There has not been funding for creative gurus like ourselves, especially in the middle of Canton, Ohio.  So we have always buckled down on our "day jobs" to make a living....and, unfortunately, neither of us are related to an “Uncle Moneybags.”  (which reminds me, I think I beat Clair in the last game of Monopoly...;)

With our discovery of kickstarter, a light bulb came on and it seemed like a dream come true.  First on our agenda was time. We need the funds for just that, freeing up our time, while  continuing to keep the "lights on", and ultimately being able to save our projects from “backburner limbo”.  Which brings us Morty's Place---to do a project in the style of "yesteryear".  Again, without our time being freed up though, we could only work at it in our sparse "spare time".  So, your pledges are what will make this creative project possible! (...before we're as old as Morty!)

The other use, besides time, is the cost of your rewards and marketing costs for the release (facebook ads, website launch, and other printed materials...).  

How? 

Clair will be recording at George’s design studio.  The tracks will be mixed, mastered and readied for release as digital file formats needed for iTunes, CD, and other digital outlets.  All designs needed for printed promotional materials and web use will be designed at the studio as well.

The recording will also be distributed as a Vinyl Record LP available through record outlets!  However, lucky for you, the Vinyl mentioned in the rewards section is an EXCLUSIVE stamped version!

During production, with the guarantee of kickstarter funding behind us, we will have the needed time to contact numerous retro/nostalgic media sites promoting the upcoming release!

Viva La Kickstarter!
